Wedding To-do's: One Week before Wedding

This is the final stretch. A lot of planning has gone into this week's activities, so remember to enjoy. There are a couple items that still need to be done and of course you will have to deal with the unexpected. Roll with the punches and remember you are not alone.


Begin packing for the honeymoon. Don't forget your camera, film and passport!

Arrange for transportation home after you return from your honeymoon.

Give caterer the final guest count. Always check your contract for this Vendor Timelines.

Go over any last minute details with wedding professionals (such as photographer, videographer, DJ, baker, etc.) Re-confirm dates and times with all pertinent parties.

Instruct ushers regarding seating guests at the ceremony site. Also, instruct ushers to roll out the aisle runner immediately before the processional.

Remind wedding attendants to pick up their attire.

Arrange to have snacks placed in dressing areas for both the bridal attendants and the groom's attendants at the wedding reception.

Visit hairstylist for one last run-through before the big day! Don't forget your veil/headpiece.

Put together a 'wedding emergency kit', with extra stockings, safety pins, hairspray, band-aids, aspirin, bobby pins, deodorant, makeup, etc. Arrange to have maid/matron of honor bring this to the wedding just in case.

Arrange for someone to care for pets and house-sit while you are away on your honeymoon. If possible, arrange for a house sitter for your wedding day.

Wrap gifts for attendants, to be presented at the rehearsal dinner.
