Wedding checklist


For some couples, the day before the wedding is pretty hectic, and for others, it’s a chance to relax. Whether you’re busy or not the day before your wedding, a checklist can help you remember the finishing details. Here’s what to do the day before your wedding:

  • Try on your wedding dress, shoes and accessories.
  • Pack everything you need to bring with you, including your bridal accessories, overnight bag and emergency kit.
  • If you plan to leave for your honeymoon after the wedding, make sure you’re packed and ready to go.
  • Put everything you need for the reception and ceremony in the car.
  • Take what you can to the venue.
  • Confirm times, locations and other details with vendors.
  • Place tips in envelopes to give to vendors.
  • Drink water throughout the day to keep hydrated.
  • Check the weather forecast and be sure you have enough umbrellas, if necessary.
  • Print a list of vendor contact information to give to a designated person.
  • Create an itinerary for the wedding day to give to your wedding party at the rehearsal dinner.
  • Attend the rehearsal dinner.
  • Pick a person outside of the wedding party to handle vendors’ questions, collect gifts and help guests to their tables.
  • Give the bridal party gifts.
  • Give the wedding bands to the best man.
  • Practice your usual skincare routine.
  • Get to bed early enough for a good night’s sleep.




If you were to peek at a day-of-wedding coordinator’s checklist, you’d see tasks such as communicate with vendors, assemble table decor and keep track of the marriage license. Unless you hire a wedding day coordinator, you’ll want to ask friends and family to help ensure things run smoothly.

Most tasks should already be taken care of before your wedding day so it can be as stress-free as possible. Just in case you missed something, here are some last-minute things to do on the day of your wedding:

  • Bring welcome gifts to the hotel.
  • Check the weather forecast.
  • Make any final changes to the seating chart if needed.
  • Ensure you have everything you need for the wedding ceremony and reception.
  • Bring your list of vendor and bridal party contact information.
  • Have vendors’ tips ready in assigned envelopes.
  • Make sure you have all of your wedding day attire and accessories.
  • Save time for hairstyling and makeup.
  • Don’t forget to eat before the ceremony.
