Wedding planning is a tedious process and it’s never truly done, even till the last minute when you have booked tent rentals and all the vendors. So, here is a guide for the things you need to check off before you walk down that aisle.

Process All Remaining Payments

This is probably the most important thing to do at the last minute of wedding planning. You should clear and process all types of pending payments, before the actual day of your wedding.

This will make sure that your vendors are not holding anything back and once the payments are finalized, they can get to work on the wedding day to get everything in check. Whether it’s the food, decorations, music, etc., you need to prepare the processing of payments and also prepare the tip envelopes to give on the day of the event, so you’re not rushing around to get things done on your big day.

Have Check-Ins With Vendors

It’s a good idea to have a final check-in with all of the vendors before the big day. You want to make sure that everything is going smoothly and as planned and that there aren’t any unexpected surprises waiting for you. This is also a good time to have any last-minute changes made to the menu, decorations, and more.

Keep in mind that the changes shouldn’t be too drastic, otherwise it won’t be a good thing and everything will fall apart. Just make sure that you’re present for a final meeting 1 to 2 days before the wedding, in order to get everything sorted and ready to go for the wedding.

Have Everything Packed

If you’ve set up a honeymoon right after the wedding, then it’s a good idea to have your luggage packed and ready to go. Also, having important documents like your passports and tickets is also going to save you time and effort. Have everything ready to go, so you don’t need to fuss over packing everything in a hurry right after your wedding. This tip also goes for packing for a destination wedding. You will thank yourself for thinking things through beforehand.

Have Extra Cash

Having extra money on hand is never a bad idea. You want to be prepared for any kind of emergency and you will need to solve it through cash. If the payments are not made, if there is some sort of pending transaction issue, then you need to solve it at the moment and the best way to do it is through cash.

Also, you might need to pay for a cab for the ceremony, reception and for going to the airport or hotel after the wedding, so you will be prepared and there won’t be any awkward moments.

Have All Arrangements Ready

While you’re surveying all of the wedding preparations, make sure that you give your wedding venue a visit too. Your venue should be about ready with all of the tables and non-disposable décor. Make sure that the name cards, the cake table, utensils, etc. are all set in the venue.

The last thing you want is to have undone tables and the guests not knowing where they are to be seated. Also, make sure that the lights and music station are set up and ready to go. If these things are not done yet, then you need to let the wedding planner or manager know.

Get An Early Start

On the few days leading up to the wedding, make sure that you are building a routine and that should include getting up early. This will give you a lot of time to go over the preparations and you will have everything organized and ready to go.

On the day of the wedding, you can also get a head-start and have everything laid out for the day, like your makeup, jewelry, dresses, and other things. This is going to ensure that you are not running around on the day of the wedding to get things done.
