Wedding Planning Checklist

  • Check in with your vendors - Confirm arrangements with your pros and make sure they all have exact directions and a contact person's cell phone number.
  • Prepare final paymentsPay your vendors ahead of time so you don't have to try to remember what is owed to whom on your wedding day.
  • Have an "insurance policy"When your vendors collect your final payments, have each of them sign a note indicating he or she has received it.  Then if anyone claims they weren't paid, you will have proof that they were. 
  • Create tip envelopesIf you plan on tipping anyone, such as the banquet captain, wait staff, DJ, or officiant, prepare envelopes with their names and insert the correct amounts.  Sealed envelopes are a lot safer than a stack of bills in someone's pocket!
  • Bring extra cash just in caseYou might want to give a gratuity to someone who you feel has gone above and beyond the call of duty.
  • Drop your luggage off earlyIf you are staying overnight at a hotel after the reception, bring your bags the night before or have a friend or family member drop them off the morning of the wedding.
  • Pack for your honeymoon earlyDo it sooner rather than later.  This way you don’t have to worry. In addition, make sure your passports and travel documents are in order.
  • Pack properly for your destination weddingMake a list of all the important things you need to bring and, if possible, pack them as carry-on.  You might be able to pick up such necessities as drugstore items at your wedding destination, but don't assume so.
  • Have wedding items in place before the big dayHave your wedding favors, toasting glasses, cake knife and server delivered to your wedding reception site a few days beforehand.  For anything going to the ceremony site, designate a trusted friend or family member to get everything there before your wedding guests arrive.

Wedding Checklist continued:  
  • Put your signature-drink recipes in writing  Give a list to your bartender the day before, so he doesn't forget exactly what you want.
  • Name those tunes  Songs are often covered or remade by different bands, so double-check with your DJ or band leader that they have the versions you want.

  • Have a discussion with your photographer  Leave nothing to chance. Give him or her a list of people you'd like to have photographed together.  Your photographer will probably get the obvious ones, but if you want a picture of everyone who flew in for your wedding, your sorority sisters or your new husband's coworkers, let your photographer know in advance.

  • Create a wedding-day photography schedule  This is the best way to keep things moving smoothly. For example, if the bride, the bridesmaids and the bride's family are being photographed at 4:15 p.m., this means they need to be at the location at 4:00 p.m., fully dressed and made up. You don't want a bridesmaid thinking she can pull into the parking lot at 4:15 p.m. with rollers in her hair and her dress in a garment bag!

  • Create a day-of itinerary  Write a detailed schedule for the bridal party and family to be distributed after the rehearsal. This lets people know where and when to arrive for photographs, etc.

  • Review printed materials  Be sure to carefully check place cards, table numbers, menus and programs for errors several days before your wedding.

  • Make your guests feel loved  Have thoughtful welcome gifts with personalized notes waiting for your guests in their hotel rooms.

  • Line your cards up  Arrange your escort and seating cards in alphabetical order ahead of time, and bring an extra copy of the seating arrangements or give it to a bridesmaid and let her be in charge of it.

  • Hydrate your bouquets  Have a vase of water ready for bouquets if it is hot and dry outside.  Certain flowers, like hydrangea and lilies need water, so if you want your bouquet to live past the ceremony, don't let it get thirsty.

Wedding Day Checklist 
  • Figure out how to get your gown to your location  If you and your bridesmaids expect to dress at your ceremony site, don't end up trying to fit large garment bags into one car along with you and your maids. If you have a plan in place, you'll avoid stress.
  • Get your limo driver's number  Don't forget to bring his cell phone number in case you change your exit time or leave something in the car. At midnight, it won't help to have only the office number.

  • Arrange transportation home for your bridal party  Don't strand your attendants at your wedding location! If they're planning to arrive via shared transportation, make sure they have a ride at the end of the evening as well.

  • Have a back up plan for rain  If you're planning an outdoor ceremony, be sure to have a tent set up and umbrellas on hand for guests, or a backup ceremony site just in case.

  • Nominate a gift caretaker  Designate in advance someone to take your presents home. Give her a house key so she can have everything there for you when you return."

  • Designate a wedding day supervisor  Have a well-organized relative arrive early at the ceremony and reception site to ensure everything is in order.

  • Give your legal documents to someone responsible  Appoint someone to keep your signed marriage license until the end of the evening so it doesn't get lost. Some honeymoon locations will give you special perks if you show proof that you're honeymooners. That license may be all you'll have.

  • Don't go hungry!  Pre-order a breakfast delivery to your hotel room the morning of the wedding. Going through the day on an empty stomach isn't helpful in dealing with all the excitement.

  • Make sure everyone knows when it's over  Double-check the end time of your wedding with your venue, as well as the time it must be cleared out, and give this information to all vendors. This will prevent unexpected overtime fees.
