I should print this list. I would have forgotten lighter definitely. Having a check list is a good idea. A friend of mine forgot her marriage license at home. She threw me her keys and while they did pictures I drove to her place and picked it up. Good thing she didn’t live far.

@Katyxa:  this has been copied and pasted into my journal. I’m really anal about things like these lol…I have just under 3 years to plan (agesss) but I need it all to be perfect. 


I would add mints and travel sized deodorant to the list because I’ve encountered brides that needed both.

These are a few other things I had on my list:

  • Perfume
  • Sun screen (one of my maids brought this and I would of been FRIED if I didn’t wear it.. Think of time spent in the sun when you get pics done)
  • Straws (so once your makeups on you can still have a drink)
  • Breath mints
  • Speeches
  • Phone charger
  • Gift for my groom
  • Lint roller
  • Shoe polish (for the boys, someone always shows up with yuck shoes)
  • RAZORS! (ALL 3 of our groomsmen showed up forgetting to shave)
  • The wedding rings
  • A phone charger
  • Tissues
  • Pretty umbrellas in case it rained

Hope that helps 🙂

Bug spray if you’re getting married or taking pictures outside. I did so good staying out of the sun so I wouldn’t have any lines or burns, and it was all ruined by a mosquito that bit me right before I walked down the aisle.  Huge red splotch on my back through the whole ceremony. And as soon as it started to fade, another one bit me.
