7 Last-Minute Wedding Details Brides Always Forget

Wedding planning is no easy task. The list of things to do seems to be never-ending. Especially in the days leading up to your vows, there is just so much to, it is nearly impossible not to forget things. No matter how many lists and sticky notes you make, you’re bound to forget something–and it won’t be the end of the world.

However, these seven details are things you’re really going to want to be sure you remember. Doing so will save you a lot of wedding day stress!

marriage license

1. Marriage License

You can’t make your marriage legal unless the officiant signs off on the license, so don’t forget this important piece of paper. Either drop it off with your officiant ahead of time or give it to a trusted member of the bridal party who you’re sure will remember it.

vendor tips

2. Vendor Tips

While you’re certainly concerned with getting your vendors their final payments, you might forget about the gratuities. Try not to leave this for the last minute; instead, place all of the tips in separate, labeled envelopes and give them to one of your parents or bridal party members to hold onto on the big day.

vendor meals

It’s also worth noting that you need to feed some of your vendors, like band members or the DJ, as well as the photographer, videographer, and their assistants, so be sure to give that number to your catering manager ahead of time.

groom's gift

4. Groom's Gift

You’ve got gifts for the bridal party and favors for all of the guests, but what about your groom? Don’t miss out on giving a special present to your soon-to-be husband. Even if it's just a heartfelt note on your wedding day, get creative!

back-up shoes

5. Backup Shoes

Your dream wedding day heels will probably get really uncomfortable after hours of wearing them. Plus, they're not exactly the most practical footwear to dance in. Bring a pair of pretty sandals or flats to your reception for you to slip into when your feet really start to get sore. You'll be so thankful that you did.

transportation options

6. Transportation Options

Your guests will likely be drinking at your wedding reception. Brides should make sure to have transportation options ready to go if a guest can't drive later on at night. Thankfully, Uber exists and many hotels offer shuttle services to and from their location.

wedding gifts

7. Wedding Gifts

Designate a friend or family member who will be responsible for getting the wedding gifts from the venue to your home. You will be too busy saying goodbye to guests to deal with it, plus, it's your special day so you don't need the added responsibility. Organize a plan and put a member of your bridal party in charge so that you don't risk anything getting left behind.
