@Firinne:  Are you checking into the hotel beforehand, or could another guest drop it off at the hotel for you? If not, either leave it with whatever transportation you have (limo?), or you could probably leave it in a room at the reception- or worse case, hide it under a table!

I would make a list of what you need overnight-I have one that I normally used for work travel, but forgot to look at it the day I packed, hence no contact solution.

Another thing I hadn’t thought of until I saw a similar post- a nice hanger for your dress, if your photographer is doing photos of it. I used a white padded lingerie hanger I already had.

BRING EXTRA SHOES!! I had THREE pairs, and was so glad I did! I was in the first pair for the ceremony and through the important dances (so I wouldn’t be taller than Fiance or Dad), then I changed into pair #2. Third pair was for the after party at the hotel bar.

1 – wedding cleanup, and if cake/food needs to be refrigerated, put it in the fridge. 

2- do the pens write on the guestbook?

3 – there’s tulle and then there’s the cheap wanna be tulle from Michaels. the cheap stuff will fly away in the wind.

4 – tell your photographer to show up dressed appropriately for a wedding.

5 – a way for your guests to send you their pics / videos. esp videos.

6 – to soak in that first moment when you may kiss the bride and the recessional starts.

Ahhh. I forgot we forgot this:  

Check your venue for wiFi.  We had a fantastic iPad app for our photo booth and while we were still able to get lots of awesome shots of everyone in costumes and all, the function we were looking forward to that posted directly to FB and Twitter didn’t really work without the WiFi.  

I’m sure there are other things that come into play in a WiFi dead zone. Of course, our venue was also 10 degrees cooler than the rest of the city because it was in a lovely hollow, but WiFi woulda been great. 

ALSO — if you’ve go outdoor stuff, you might want to try to get on-site a week or two before the event to check the inclination of the sun at the same hour your event starts to gauge whether or not you need parasols or other sun protection. As it turned out, we didn’t have as much sun exposure as we were afraid of, but you don’t want to think you’ve got it covered and have it turn out that the sun is blazing down on your guests!

have a checklist on hand! you will need to remember things like batteries if needed, shave your legs and underarms, its a good idea to have a survival kit for the bridal party with deoderant, body spray, shave stuff, ect. oh and for the guys THE RIGHT COLOR SOCKS!
