What To Pack For Your Wedding Day

Who loves a checklist? Here’s a little checklist on what to pack for your wedding day.

You’ve wrapped up the last timeline confirmations, guest drops outs, picked your song choices and put all the finishing touches to your wedding ceremony.

What’s left? ..  That’ll be you!

Packing yourself up for your wedding day is usually left till last. We often come bottom of the pile; we’re so busy organising everything and everyone else.

But getting YOU ready is essential; you don’t want to give yourself any stress worrying that you will forget something you will or might need.

So sit yourself down a few days before the ceremony and write out a list of what you need to take with you to wherever you’re staying the night before the wedding ceremony.

This is when a checklist comes in handy for what to pack for your wedding day.

I’ve covered a few of the essential items here, but get yourself a pad and write down things as you go along.

Better written down than forgotten!

Packing checklist for your wedding day

These are the basics that you will need to pack for your wedding day.

On the day information

  • The wedding timeline, to keep yourself on time.
  • List of all your suppliers and their contact details

Wedding Party

  • Getting ready outfits, pj’s, robes etc.

Makeup and Hair

  • A dressing gown that ties around you to wear during make-up and hair sessions
  • Kirby grips/ hair clips and accessories
  • Make-up and make-up applicators
  • Q-tips, cotton balls and wipes/tissue
  • Make-up remover and nail polish remover
  • Nail polish in case you chip any nails on the day
  • Moisturiser (the kind you use every day)
  • Hair spray
  • Lipstick
  • Hairbrush, combs, curling iron, curlers, straighteners, and hairdryer
  • Nail file, tweezers, and nail scissors
  • Face cleanser and lotion

You might think, but my MUA or hairdresser will have a lot of that stuff but remember you still need to get ready the following morning to head home with your new partner and life as a married couple.

 

First Aid

  • Plasters, eye drops, hay fever tablets if you suffer from hay fever.
  • Feminine products if needed
  • Paracetamol

And for that all-important day

  • Veil or headpiece
  • Hair accessories
  • Wedding Day Perfume

I think that covers everything that you may need to pack as you prepare for your wedding ceremony.
