1. Wedding Day Emergency Kit

First, on our list of 10 Things to Include on Your Last Minute Bridal Checklist is an emergency kit. You've heard the old saying "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong". We definitely hope that this isn't the case on your wedding day. However, being prepared, should an unexpected situation arises, is why you should pack an emergency kit on your wedding day. Things to include in your wedding day emergency kit is a travel size sewing kit, safety pins, and stain remover wipes.

2. Preparation of Wedding Dress

When it comes to your wedding gown, you would want to try it on one last time to ensure it fits just right and that you feel comfortable in it. Although you should have your dress steamed the night before, bring a steamer for any additional wrinkles that may appear from transporting your gown.

3. Prepare Your Vows

Also, on our list of 10 Things to Include On Your Last Minute Bridal Checklist is preparation of your vows. Remember to write your vows beforehand so that you know you are not nervous or unprepared on your wedding day. If you have already wrote your vows, review them one last time and say them out loud before the actual ceremony.

4. Pack an Overnight Bag

One of the last things you want to forget is your overnight bag. Your overnight bag is essential and should include all of your necessities, toiletries, and clothing for your wedding night and your honeymoon.

5. Confirm Final Guest Count

Before your wedding day, be sure to have your wedding planner confirm the final guest count with the venue and caterer, finalize the seating arrangements, and any dietary requirements.

6. Create a Timeline

Your wedding planner should create a timeline for your wedding day. This is to ensure that things go according to plan, and ensure things are moving along in a timely fashion. Be sure to share your timeline with your bridal party and vendors so that everyone knows when and where they should be ahead of time.

7. Assign a Point Person

In order to keep your mind at ease, assign a point person, such as a bridesmaid or maid of honor, to handle any last minute tasks or issues that may come up on your wedding day. This gives you an opportunity to enjoy your day without having to worry about anything.

8. Practice Walking in Your Shoes

Since you've found those amazing shoes that go perfectly with your wedding gown, you want to practice walking in them. We call this "breaking them in". You want to be comfortable walking down the aisle so be sure to practice walking and dancing in them at least for "the moment".

9. Confirm Vendors

Just like everything else on your wedding day be sure that your wedding planner or coordinator confirms with all of your vendors the week of, day before, and day of your wedding. The list includes every vendor that will take part in your wedding celebration such as the florist, photographer, and videographer.
