We know you won’t forget the dress, but shoes and earrings can easily slip the mind. Make a list of every last thing you’re wearing, and check them off as you pack them up.
Here’s how to get your attire where it needs to be, no matter how you’re traveling.
Don’t forget that this whole wedding isn’t just for show — you gotta make it legal! Bring the doc to sign right after you say “I do.”
If all goes according to plan, you won’t need to reach them — but it can’t hurt to have their phone numbers, just in case (knock on wood!).
Hate to break it to you, but you can’t (or probably shouldn’t) wear your wedding dress home the next morning. Bring a change of clothes for your morning-after brunch or honeymoon travel days. If you’re leaving for a grand adventure right after the big day, bring all your luggage with you.
Pack smart for your honeymoon with these honeymoon packing hacks.
Unfortunately, you might not get a full meal during the reception — you’ll be so busy running around and spending time with your loved ones. Stash a few granola bars in your purse and overnight bag for when a pang of hunger undoubtedly hits. And while you probably want to sip champagne all night, keep water within arms’ reach. Bring water bottles while you’re getting ready to stay hydrated!
Especially if you wrote your own vows, be sure to write them down and ask a bridesmaid to carry them during the ceremony. This is what it’s all about!
Start with these 7 tips for writing your own wedding vows.
A tip: This is already a lot of stuff to remember — but it probably isn’t everything on your list. Try to drop off other items (like favors, programs, your cake knife and your guest book) at the venue a day or two before. One less thing to worry about!
