Check With the Wedding Party and Key Guests

When it comes to putting together your wedding checklist, it’s crucial first and foremost that you touch base with your wedding party and most important guests. Even though people have committed, you never know what kind of last-minute matters can cause someone to back out of your wedding. 

Making one last check will allow you to set the details in stone. Be particularly mindful to check on the best man, maid and matron of honor, and the parents of the bride and groom. You might also have some important traditions that you’d like to carry out, such as Jewish wedding traditions, or customs aligned with a certain country. 

Try On the Tuxedos

Make sure that you get your guys to try on their tuxedos prior to the event. Mistakes happen all the time, and you owe it to yourself to make one last check that will allow you to get emergency fixes if necessary. 

The last thing you’d want is your groomsmen, or worse, the groom, standing at the altar with a tuxedo that doesn’t fit, or is missing items. 

Make Sure All Deposits are Paid

Take care of all your money matters as well. There are typically some last-minute deposits that need to be addressed so that your wedding professionals show up to render service on the day of the event. 

You’ll need to pay your wedding photographer, DJ, and other key professionals that you’ve hired. Get copies of these paid deposits in writing and keep them for your records. 

Touch Base With the Wedding Planner

Finally, it’s crucial that you touch base with the wedding planner on the day of the event. They’ll be with you on the day of the wedding and may need to iron out some details with you the week before. 

It’s worth your peace of mind to check that you’re on the same page and ready to go with the planner that you hired. 

Handle Your Wedding Preparation Accordingly

Learning the ins and outs of wedding preparation will help you get the most from your special day. The more prepared you are, the easier it is to guarantee that you get your money’s worth from your wedding.
