Checklist Of Things To Remember The Night Before The Wedding

It’s the night before the big day and the butterflies are kicking in! Everything that you have planned and worked towards, it’s all for this one day!

The day and especially the night before the wedding day is the most nerve-racking part of the whole process, we don’t blame you! This is the last to-do list you’ll need to complete before the big day.

Things To Do The Night Before Your Wedding

Eat A Simple, Healthy Meal

Save the late night Maccas run and greasy pizza for after the wedding! Stick to simple and clean eating starting from 2 days before your wedding to ensure you feel amazing and your skin is glowing!

Pack Your Clutch Or Small Bag Of Personal Items

Put all your personal items together including your lipstick, perfume, phone and any other items you may need and give it to your wedding point person. This may be your wedding planner or stylist who can ensure it’s waiting for you in the bridal suite or in your hotel room.

Drink Water

Hydration, hydration, hydration! One of the most important steps to do the night before your wedding. Keep a bottle of water nearby and make sure you avoid dehydration at all costs that can come about from all the stress and running around.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

Try to get a good night’s rest to ensure you are awake and refreshed for the big day.

Switch Off Your Phone

All your Facebook notifications and messages can wait till the next day after the wedding! Enjoy every second of your last single girl moments!

Pack Any Boxes, Bags, Suitcases That Need To Be Brought To The Ceremony Or Reception

Pack all your last minute items into bags and boxes to ensure everything can be transported smoothly and you don’t have to worry about leaving anything behind. Also, make sure all your honeymoon items are packed and ready to go in your suitcases.

Payment For Suppliers

Double check and triple check that all bills and suppliers have been paid.

Wedding Emergency Kit

Put together a bunch of must-have items into a small bag in case anyone needs to use them throughout the wedding. Items include band aids, safety pins, Panadol, tissues, lipstick, sewing kit, small spray bottle of stain remover, mints, touch ups for makeup. Don’t forget a change of shoes like slippers when your feet can’t handle the pain!

Make A List Of All Supplier Details

Include all your suppliers contact details like contact numbers, arrival times, name and what they will be suppling for your wedding. Once this list has been organised, pass this onto your point person to ensure everything is running smoothly.

Write A Note To Your Groom & Bridesmaids

Make it short and sweet!

Watch Something That’ll Make You Laugh

Watch your favourite romantic comedy or sit back and go through photos or videos of you and your partner to take your mind off the stress and the butterflies in your stomach!

Mani & Pedi Treatment

Make this an activity to do with your bridesmaids and do this either the day or night before the wedding to ensure your nails are looking fresh!

Assign Someone To Do All The Morning-After Jobs

This person could be your maid of honour or one of your bridesmaids and their role will be to collect all the gifts and to make sure nothing has been left behind the venue.

Express Your Gratitude

Look around you and just appreciate everyones help in the lead up for the big day. This is a good opportunity to also thank your bridesmaids for saying yes to stick by your side on one of the most important days of your life.

Practice Walking In Your Shoes

Make sure you start on the right foot! Stretch out your shoes and make sure they don’t cause you any blisters or pain. Dance around the kitchen, walk up and down the hallways, practice walking down the aisle.


Take the time to calm the nerves down, pop some relaxing music and do a bit of mediation to get you zen!

Skincare & Night Routine

Don’t forget about your skin care! Exfoliate, lather on the moisturiser, apply a face mask and put on your face oils to give you that bridal glow.

One Last Kiss

Whether you have chosen to spend the night apart or you and your partner are planning on spending time together in anticipation of the big day, take a moment to enjoy each other’s company as the time being each other’s finacés.
