One day a few days before the wedding, to actually have one night alone with FI and not do anything wedding related. Order out for food and…

RELAX.

Also, make sure you have all the right kinds of under garments. pack an er kit (thred, bandaids, extra deoderant, mints…)

 

Other then that, sounds good to me =)

It looks as though you’re pretty much up to speed. The things that come to mind

Jewelry

Shoes

Rehearsal time?

Are you doing a rehearsal dinner?

Are you writing your own ceremony or vows?

 

Hope this helps and congratulations!

Undies. I’d also recommend a ‘must have photos’ list for your photographer. Cake topper? First dance practise. Father daughter dance. Write vows. Old, new, borrowed, blue. That’s all I can think of right now

I’m not sure what type of venue it is, so maybe you are staying there, but do you have somewhere to stay the night before and/or after your wedding? And do you have transportation so you’re able to have a few cocktails???

hahaha me again !! I thought of some more for you 🙂

Check the venue also arrange the bouquets, boutonairres, and corsages, as well as the flower decorations? If not, book a florist. 

A wedding website is very useful and takes 30 mins to set up, people can RSVP online and check all accom details etc.

Wishing well / cards box.

Limo’s etc. (arrival and/or departure of bride & groom)

Confetti (bubbles, rice, sparklers etc. Might want to check confetti ‘policy’ at the ceremony).

Ask Bridesmaids and Mother about their hair and makeup arrangements, ie will you all get it done together?

Ask your best man, MOH and dads (and whoever else) to do a speech.

Book an MC and discuss timing of events.

Bonbonierres?

‘Do Not Play’ and ‘Must Play’ lists for the DJ. (We specifically requested NO CHICKEN DANCE at our reception and NO THAT’S AMORE. We alse requested that they must play ‘Sisters are doin it for themselves’ which went off like a hot rock in a sock)

Must have photo list, ceremony plans (order, music, readings, etc), special dance songs, floor plan layout, anything that you need to buy for the reception (we have to provide our own mixers, alcohol, sodas, ice, and water).

ETA: if you have a pet, someone to take care of it (or them) while you’re in wedding mode; maybe a neighbor kid to start caring for your pet Fri-Sun.  And once you book your honeymoon, finding someone to watch your pet then

Not sure if any other bees have picked up on these things but here’s things that are missing from your list. Bride and bridesmaids floral bouquets, groom and groomsmen’s wedding suit attire,  wedding cake knife.

Are you having favours? Also some brides like to have their guests greeted at the reception venue with a glass of champagne each or something like that.
