I am having a 6pm wedding so my aunt is making deli trays for both my room and my fiance’s room.  More substantial food than snackies to make sure we don’t get worn out. 

Cake Stand?

Wedding Party gifts?

Outfit for rehersal dinner?

Sandals or flip flops if your heels hurt during reception

If in Oceanside do you need a shrug or cardigan for even ocean wind?

Gifts for your parents or his parents?

Groom’s gift?

Get your ring cleaned the week of the wedding

Marriage license (funny I am sure we all forget about this)

Update your registry as we are hitting a change in seasons.  For example I am registered at Crate and Barrel and they are starting to no longer carry summer stuff and bringing out all the fall stuff

A list of what still needs to be paid.  A nice spreadsheet of 2 weeks out, 1 week out, day of wedding… who the check is made out to and maybe go ahead and make up the envelopes (including gratuity)

I swear I will think of more

Day of timeline for all of your vendors as well as the bridal party

Welcome letter for guests (in the hotel room drop) – possibly including a map to the ceremony/reception and what time transportation (if any_ will be picking up/dropping off)

Wedding photo checklist (so you don’t wind up not having a professional pic with your grandparents for example)

I just added bathroom baskets to my list, thanks bees!

@zaylee:Just a basket in the bathroom with extra stuff like tampons, breath mints, bobby pins, Anything you think a guest might have forgotten that would be nice to have. Not necessary but a nice touch

Such a great post! 

A bathroom basket contains lots of little things that may be helpful to guests, such as deoderant, floss, tampons, etc.  If you search for bathroom basket a lot of helpful posts come up.

Do you need a clutch or purse to keep lipstick, ect. in?

Do you need any ‘reserved’ signs for the ceremony?

p.s. I really like the idea of getting the tips ready in envelopes beforehand!
