Wedding planning is no easy task. The list of things to do seems to be never-ending. Especially in the days leading up to your vows, there is just so much to do, it is nearly impossible not to forget things. No matter how many lists and sticky notes you make, you’re bound to forget something–and it won’t be the end of the world.
However, today we are sharing a 7 Last-Minute Wedding checklist to help you remember those pieces that often get forgotten.
Make sure a bridesmaid knows how to bustle your dress, then practice! They can be really tricky, so I recommend bringing her along to the final fitting for a lesson.
2. You can’t make your marriage legal unless the officiant signs off on the license, so don’t forget this important piece of paper. Either drop it off with your officiant ahead of time or give it to a trusted member of the bridal party who you’re sure will remember it.
3. While you’re certainly concerned with getting your vendors their final payments, you might forget about the gratuities. Try not to leave this for the last minute; instead, place all of the tips in separate, labeled envelopes and give them to one of your wedding coordinator or bridal party members to pass out during the big day.
4. You’ve got gifts for the bridal party and favors for all of the guests, but what about your groom? Don’t miss out on giving a special present to your soon-to-be husband. Even if it's just a heartfelt note on your wedding day, get creative!
5. Your dream wedding day heels will probably get really uncomfortable after hours of wearing them. Plus, they're not exactly the most practical footwear to dance in. Bring a pair of pretty sandals or flats to your reception for you to slip into when your feet really start to get sore. You'll be so thankful that you did.
6. Designate a friend or family member who will be responsible for getting the wedding gifts from the venue to your home. You will be too busy saying goodbye to guests to deal with it, plus, it's your special day so you don't need the added responsibility. Organize a plan and put a member of your bridal party in charge so that you don't risk anything getting left behind.
7. Leaving for your honeymoon shortly after the reception? Pack now! Even if you have a day or two in between your flight and the ceremony, this tip will allow you to get a jump on thank-you cards, spend more time with family while they’re in-town, or even just rest your feet a bit after all that reception dancing.
Check them off the list and now you are ready to tie the knot! Happy Planning!
