The Groom's 2 Week Before List of Reminders
In the middle of everything going on, you may find an unwelcome bug called memory laps lurking in and around you planning and preparing. It is easy for anyone to get confused and forgetful when dealing with things that are highly pressuring on the nerves. Take some personal time away from your schedule to make a few reminder notes. Making personal notes is a great way to keep you organized and on top of things that are important. With taking the time to organize your thoughts and writing down important reminders, you may find that the very smallest of things will require a higher than expected priority level in your list of things to do. Organization is the key to successfully pulling yourself through this tremendous planning period.
Important things that you as a groom should remember are; gifts for your attendants, new wife and parents, the marriage license, wedding ring, last minute payments as well as tips for the service providers. It is not uncommon for the groom to forget some of these things but, putting a plan together that will better help you to remember them is a good way to ensure that you will be on top of things, because you just never know whats really important until you do.
Your notes should start with last minute details regarding your wedding plans. Here is a list of things that are of high importance that a groom should always try to remember during the weeks approaching the wedding.
