As your wedding day approaches, so many things are running through your mind. Often it is big picture things; not the fact that you may break your nail and need a backup or that you do indeed need a cake knife and scoop for cutting the cake as Mr. and Mrs. Well, after working as a wedding planner for a year, I witnessed a running list of things forgotten day-of that caused quite a chaotic hour or two. But, do not fret. I have compiled a detailed list of everything to pack for a seamless, well-prepped day!
Lip gloss – Aquaphor will also do the trick!
Medications – prescriptions, supplements pain reliever, nausea relief, etc.
Nail clippers or replacement nails
WEDDING DETAILS TO PHOTOGRAPH
Engagement ring and wedding bands – Yes, I am reminding you to pack the RINGS!
Nice hangers for bride/bridesmaid dresses
Something borrowed, something blue
Fan – If you have an outdoor ceremony, this is a must while you wait!
Flower girl basket
Marriage certificate – You’d be surprised how often this was left behind.
Ring bearer pillow
Special ritual items (candles, sand and vase, etc.) – Do your research, so many fantastic ideas!
Guest book and quality pens
Cake cutting set (knife and scoop)
Cash for vendor tips – Organize and label envelopes so the wedding planner can distribute them.
THINGS TO TOP OFF THE DAY
Set up a photo-sharing album – The easiest way to ensure you get all the IPhone shots from the day.
Snacks (protein bars, nuts, fruit)
Outfit for next morning
Waterproof makeup remover
Wedding night lingerie
