What am I missing?

I am booking everything separately as I find good deals and I want to make sure I am not missing anything terribly important. 
This is what I have booked or am discussing to book:
  • Venue for ceremony and reception
  • Tables, chairs, and linens
  • Buffet Service
  • Bartender
  • Cake
  • Flowers
  • DJ
This is what I am doing on my own
  • Centerpieces
  • Buying alcohol as the bartender does not provide it 
This is what I know I still have to find
  • Photographer
  • Officiant

Re: What am I missing?

  • Just some things that came to my mind that weren't covered above

    • Does buffet service include silverware & dishes for the guests?
    • Glasses for bartender?
    • Hair/makeup/nails - book appointments unless you are doing all yourself
    • Are you providing transportation yourself or renting a limo/car?
    • Checking into requirements for marriage license to make sure you have all necessary paperwork on hand (we needed to go & get a copy of my husbands divorce papers from his first marriage from the county because he couldn't find his copy anymore, glad we looked for them a few weeks in advance)
    • Does your venue require you to rent security for having booze there?

    You also need someone to set and clear the tables.

    Is the caterer cutting the cake? Who is setting up?

  • I believe catering has someone to set and clear the tables, and the cake cutting fee is included with the cake package I purchased. I didn't even think of those, I had to look back on the paperwork to see.
