When you’re a bride, your head may be in a tailspin as your wedding day approaches. This checklist contains essential items you’ll need on the big day.
Planning a wedding is an overwhelming process. There’s so much to do and remember. Suddenly, you blink, and your big day is days away. You want the day to go smoothly and not forget anything important. Below, you’ll find a list of essential items you’ll need on your wedding day. This checklist will help you get everything in order.
The MVG of the Day: Your Wedding Dress
One of the most important items you’ll need for the day is your most valuable garment: your wedding dress! What a disaster it would be if you forgot that! Have it ready to go by the door, hanging up, and in a garment bag to prevent wrinkles.
Place your wedding shoes and accessories that belong with the shoes, like socks or laces, next to the gown. Also, ensure you try on the heels, sneakers, or wedges before the day and that you break them in to avoid foot pain on your wedding day.
You’ve most likely hired professionals to fix your hair and makeup for your wedding day. If you’re using specific hair accessories, like a veil, clips, or flowers, you’ll provide them yourself. It’s important not to forget these items. Pack them into a bag and have them ready to go the night before.
Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to wear your favorite jewelry or a family heirloom. You won’t have the right look if you forget any pieces, so pack each item into a bag and place it in a larger bag. Ensure you have your earrings, necklace, bracelets, and wedding rings.
You won’t have time to head home after the ceremony or reception to pack a bag. You’ll need a set of pajamas, clothes for the next day, a toothbrush, toothpaste, your nighttime facial routine, and anything else you’ll need.
If you’re leaving for your honeymoon right after, you’ll need to have a bag packed for that. The last thing you want is to try and pack for anything after the wedding. You’ll most likely forget things because you’re busy thinking about other details.
If you’re writing your vows, ensure you have them written up and ready to go. It’s another item to add to your emergency kit you’ll have on you all day. You could also have your maid or matron of honor in charge of the vows. Have your best gal pal hand them over when you’re ready.
Relax and Have Fun
It’s your wedding day! You’ve done all the planning and the day is finally here. The best thing you can do is take some deep breaths, relax, and have the time of your life! Your wedding day is one you’ll never forget! So enjoy every moment. Remember to slow down and take mental pictures to help savor the day.
As the wedding day approaches, ensure you have the above items every bride needs ready to go. You’ll have a lot on your mind, and this list will help you understand what’s important.
