The Last Minute Wedding Checklist You Need to Tick Off


Your Wedding is just a few short weeks away and all the major to-dos have been ticked off the list, but it’s always the little things that get overlooked.

Anyone who’s ever spent an outrageous amount on a pair of Chanel earrings or a Burberry scarf will agree that it’s the small details that count, so to avoid forgetting an important aspect to your wedding, there are a few things we recommend.

Finalise RSVPs

You’ll often have a few last minute guests unable to make it on your big day. Make sure you let the florist and caterers know so they can readjust the table settings. No-one wants a half-filled table at their reception.

Check Parking

If you’ve got a lot of suppliers bumping in and bumping out of the wedding, they’ll need a loading dock or a parking spot close to the venue. Liaise with the venue manager to ensure this all runs smoothly.

Photo Brief

This is an insider tip. If you want any specific photos (ie. A pic of your new in-laws together posing at the bridal table), put together a photography brief. Note down any images that you desperately want (including any funny poses) and provide this to your photographer.

Confirm…Everything!

A fortnight out from the wedding, call all of your suppliers and triple check that they have everything they need. If you’ve got more suppliers than battery on your mobile, delegate to some of your bridesmaids. Many hands make light work!

Think Ahead

It can feel like the wedding day is the be all and end all, but don’t forget about the honeymoon! If you’re leaving for your romantic vacay shortly after the wedding, you’ll need to make sure your passport is up to date, flights booked and honeymoon outfits sorted. As an extra, if you’re changing your name immediately, make sure there isn’t a waiting period that will affect overseas travel.
