Neha Garg, 27 Nov 2015

All set for the most important day of your life? Not just yet. Not until you run a last-minute check on every aspect of your wedding.

As you approach your D-day, here’s a checklist that you can refer to and ensure that everything is on track. From your outfit essentials to the service providers, the following list has everything! Read, read.

Keep your wedding outfit and accessories in one place.

Confirm with all your vendors.

Handover copies of the list of vendors with their numbers to your supervisor.

You see, you’ll be busy with the proceedings, salon appointments, and what not, and so, it’s essential that at least one or two of your extended family members has the information of all your vendors.

Create an itinerary for the wedding venue and communicate to your guests.

Having a destination wedding? Or chosen a venue that’s “off the beaten path”? Prepare directions for the venue and share them with everyone, a day before the wedding. This way, they won’t keep calling you for directions while you’re busy getting ready.

Keep extra cash in hand.

Duh, it’s a wedding, after all! With so many guests arriving, you never know what inventory your vendors fall short of. Don’t just rely on ATMs; instead, carry enough money with you at all times so that you are able to address any issue that may crop up in the middle of the day.

Keep one driver for yourself.

Your salon appointment is one of the most important things to be addressed on the wedding day. At least a day in advance, make sure that you have someone who can drive you till there.

Have your best friend/sister keep an emergency kit handy.

Assign her to also be in charge of your eating.

Well, of course. With so much happening, it’s natural to lose your appetite and forget about food. Let her take care of your meals, so that you stay energetic all day long, and don’t faint away!

Have a final talk with your photographers.

Take some time out off the hullabaloo, meet them at the venue an evening before the wedding, and discuss with them the décor elements you’d like to capture. Believe us, it’s a totally different discussion once you’re at the venue.

Hand over your song list to your DJ.

Keep the wedding favors ready.

Pack for your honeymoon beforehand.


Picture Source: RealWedding|Shaadisaga The last thing you want to do as soon as you’re done with the wedding is pack a hefty suitcase or your honeymoon. Therefore, keep it packed beforehand, and add last-minute essentials just the night before so that you’re all set to take off right after the wedding.

Don’t have “too much fun” the night before.

Make sure to get enough sleep.

It’s called beauty sleep for a reason! You don’t want to wake up all groggy and irritated due to the lack of sleep. Therefore, sleep on time.

Keep yourself calm throughout the wedding.

What matters is what comes after this huge event. So, don’t forget to keep calm and enjoy this day that you’re never going to experience again in this lifetime.
