We are FINALLY on the final part of our last minute wedding details list!
Part 3 of Last Minute Wedding Details
Overnight Bag – Is your overnight bag packed and ready to go? Where will it be during the ceremony/reception?
Cake Knife – I always hear that people tend to forget their cake knife. If you are looking for a cake knife, try Michaels and use one of their weekly coupons!
Pens/Markers – I would suggest looking for a pretty pen for when you sign your wedding documents because more than likely it will be photographed. (Not a huge deal or detail but you may not want a large tacky Larry’s Towing pen in your pictures.) Also, make sure you have extra pens or markers for you guest book.
Lighters – Make sure to buy a few long lighters for lighting all your tealights and candles
Cards & Gifts – Who will gather your gifts and cards at the end of the night? Most venues are safe and secure but it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful.
Dress – Does your dress need to be steamed before the wedding?
Doggy Bag – Ask you caterer ahead of time to make up two plates to go to take back to your hotel. It will be a long day and most of the time the bride and groom don’t get to eat all their meals.
Washroom Baskets – If you are planning on putting some items together for your guests, have that done and all ready to go in a nice looking basket. Some great ideas for the basket are: gum, hair ties, deodorant, brush, hairspray, bobby pins, make up wipes, lint brush, etc.
Thank You Cards – If you aren’t planning on using any photos on your wedding thank you’s, I would suggest getting these done ASAP. They are the easiest task after the wedding to procrastinate on. Make sure you also have a designated person to keep track of all gifts and who they are from.
I hope this three part list will help get more organized and feel less stressed as the weeks creep up to your wedding day. If you have any extra last minute details to add leave a comment below!
