Just two short weeks and you’ll be in newlywed bliss. And while we’re sure you can’t wait for all the “firsts” you and your partner will get to experience together in married life, there are still a few things to tie up before you say, “I do”.
Final Fitting of the Wedding Dress
With your dress alterations complete, the final fitting is Gown 101. What do you do if it wrinkles? If you spill on it? How in the world do those beautiful but complicated straps work?
It’s best to bring someone along—like your maid of honor— who will be there on the big day so they can take notes on how to help you walk down that aisle in style.
Confirm All Transport Arrangements
Contact your transportation vendors and confirm all of the locations they need to be at and what time they need to be there. This includes everything from your wedding party party bus to any guest shuttles. If you plan on driving around with your wedding party in between the ceremony and rehearsal, discuss this and any stops you want to make along the way, so your driver is fully prepared.
Once everything is good to go, make sure the plan is put on paper (or digital paper at least). This way, if something does go wrong, you have a record of what was agreed upon in the final chat.
Finalise Wedding Vows & Readings with Officiant
It’s true. You really do plan every detail of your wedding—down to the last word. And some of the most important words on your wedding day will be during the ceremony. From the vows exchanged to what’s spoken by your officiant, now is the time to get your words in a row. Make them meaningful to you and your partner, and there won’t be a dry eye in the crowd.
Assemble the Wedding Favors
Now that you have everything you need for the wedding favors, it’s time to get them dressed up and ready for the big day. If you’re having a large wedding, enlist the help of a few friends to get them done. If you end up with a few extra, you can always give them to vendors or friends and family who weren’t able to make it.
Confirm Times & Locations for Photo Sessions
Set up a call with your photographer to go over times and locations for the photo sessions happening throughout the day. If you want to change anything, now is the time. It also might be a good idea to have a backup plan in place in case bad weather or a busy location deters your plans. Follow up the call with an email so everything you confirmed is in writing for all parties involved to see!
