CYA - Pocket Schedules for the Wedding Party

by Jenny Bryde 12. December 2009 10:48

Details, details, details.  Amongst the love, happiness, and wonderful memories, your wedding day is chock full of details.  In an ideal world, there is someone there to take care of the details, but as well all know, life is rarely at the absolute ideal level.  

I believe the name of the game is CYA, which stands for Cover Your Fill-In-The-And-It-Starts-With-An-A-And-Ends-With-an-SS.  

In order to properly attain CYA-status, you are going to need some help.  Now let's think...it's your wedding day, and you need some trusted people who can keep all the plates spinning.  They need to be in on the plan ahead of time, and they need to be people who you can depend upon to be there for the duration of the day...hmm...where would a bride and groom find such a group?

The Wedding Party of course!  With the wedding party you will find an assortment of talents including but not limited to:

  • Someone who can help you fix any hair/make-up/wardrobe malfunctions.
  • Someone who likes to eat and thus reminds you to eat.
  • Someone who has the secret stash of vodka.
  • Someone who can be the bully if someone else is annoying you.
  • And someone who is always good at calming your nerves.
These people need to be prepped and primed before the wedding day events start to unfurl.  One really ingenious way to do so is to give each member of your wedding party a little pocket schedule complete with the day's events and their individual duties.  This needs to be small enough that they can tuck it into their clothing.  Take a look at this little accordion pocket schedule that this bride shared on Weddingbee.com...


This bride's pocket schedule was designed to match her wedding stationery and tied up with some lovely baker's twine and given to each member of her wedding party. She designed the lay out simply enough on her computer and printed them out at home. Easy peasy... What will you do to make your wedding party ready to go on the big day??
