Wedding To-do's: Two Weeks before Wedding


Confirm accommodations for out-of-town guests and assist with babysitting arrangements. Finalize plans for a 'Welcome' package or gift basket for out-of-town guests; include a wedding schedule and a list of local tourist attractions

Address wedding announcements, so they can be mailed immediately after the wedding.

Provide all key players (including wedding attendants and wedding professionals) with a detailed schedule of wedding events.

Arrange to change address, name and/or beneficiary information on your driver's license, social security card, insurance policies, etc.

If you are changing residences, begin moving into your new home.

Confirm transportation arrangements for ceremony, wedding reception and afterwards.

Arrange to have someone (likely your maid/matron of honor or mother) take your gown to the cleaners after the wedding for preservation. Also, arrange to have the groom's formalwear returned to the tuxedo shop, if it will be rented.

Arrange to have someone transport gifts from the wedding reception to your home.

Confirm arrangements with all wedding professionals, in writing.

Plan reception seating arrangements. Ensure that divorced parents and other potentially hostile parties aren't seated next to each other.
