What a Bride Needs to Bring to the Wedding

It is the day before the wedding, and even if you have a wedding planner, there are some ” to do’s” that you want to make sure are in order. There are some items that you will want to bring with you on the wedding day.

  • Bridal Gown: You want to take your bridal gown, shoes, veil, and any other accessories which makes your final bridal look. If you are getting ready at the venue or ceremony site, then make sure you you know ahead of time which car can hold your gown and take it to the site. You want to make sure the car has plenty of room for the large garment bag.  So do not plan to take a two seater sports car with your garment bag! Save that ride for another day.
  • Drop off luggage: If you are heading out to your honeymoon that evening or next day, make sure you are packed. It is a good idea to pack a few days before the wedding day, so the night before, you can relax and get a good night’s sleep.  If possible, try to drop off your luggage at the hotel you are staying at earlier that day, or have someone drop it off for you. That way when you are departing your wedding, you do not have to worry about it.
  • Pack a Emergency Kit:   Some examples are lipstick, face powder, and any other touch up make up needs, hairspray, bobby pins, stain remover, tissues, deodorant, toothbrush,  toothpaste, and lotion. You can add anything else which you think you will absolutely need that day.
  • Eat and Drink: It is a big day and the excitement and nerves will be there, and you may not want to eat. However, you want to make sure that you eat and drink plenty of water. Eating well and keeping hydrated will give you plenty of energy for the day. So make sure to order breakfast for the morning, and then have lunch also ordered for later. If you are in a hotel, you can easily order room service. If you are at a venue or ceremony site where they do not have food service, you can ask your bridesmaids, family member, or friend to order breakfast and lunch.  You can also bring your favorite snacks, goodies, and treats for you to enjoy throughout the day while you are getting ready.

Make a checklist so you do not forget anything!
