What about:
Officiant confirmed
Caterer/menu
Bar stock/Bartenders/Liquor License/Pop & Mix
Gifts for parents if thats a thing in your region
Breakfast/Lunch/Snacks for wedding day while getting ready
MC prepared?
Anyone giving speeches prepared?
All readings (if any) have been allocated?
If you’re saying grace before dinner, has that been delegated?
What about a cake? If you’re having one, have you delgated someone to cut it for you? Do you have a nice serving set?

irishgal555 :  Well if that’s all you missed, you’re doing well!! My wedding isnt for a while yet so I havent nailed down gifts yet but my ideas are necklaces for moms with a card saying “Thank you for raising the man of my dreams”. I know it’s not very original but FIMIL will be super touched and maybe an embroidered pocket square for FFIL? we’ll probably do similar gifts for each parent (we have 6 between the 2 of us lol).

Only things that come to mind are:

makeup as only hair was mentioned

Also if u aren’t having a videographer perhaps ask a friend to film the ceremony for u.

practice first dance

Guestbook if u are having one
