This summer, I planned my wedding…on my own! It was quite the challenge but it was so rewarding in the end. There are so many things you need to remember and it can get a little stressful if you don’t write out a list of To-Do’s!
Here are just some things you should never forget to consider when planning your wedding day!! I’ve shared 6 in this post and the 6 others in my freebie when you sign up for my email list!
1) YOUR FINAL GOWN FITTING
When you buy your wedding dress, it won’t fit perfectly which is why you should put a little money to the side for alterations.
You will go through a series of fittings with your gown and once your final fitting is scheduled, it’s best to bring your Maid of Honor. When she is there with you, she can see how your bustle clips and know of any other notes from the specialist! This will help your wedding day run smoothly!

2) YOUR HONEYMOON
If you are going straight to your honeymoon destination the day after, don’t forget to pack a few days before!! Open your notes app, jot down everything you need to pack and keep that list pinned so you don’t forget anything!
3) GETTING READY ATTIRE
When you are getting your hair and makeup done, I always recommend robes / pj sets for my brides. They are comfy, cute and won’t ruin your glam when you change into your dresses! Here are some places that have cute attire:
When planning your wedding, don’t forget to set money aside for vendor tips. They worked so hard to make your wedding vision come to life! They’re not required but they are appreciated!
5) DO-NOT-PLAY LIST
It’s good to have a list of songs for the DJ NOT to play at your wedding. If you skip out on this step, chances are you may be in for a surprise.
There are two things you need to keep in mind; how is the bridal party getting to locations and how are we leaving the wedding? You can have the party split up in multiple cars or you can hire a limo, party bus, etc.
When it’s time for you and your husband to leave, make sure you have transportation figured out as well. Are you two driving home? Or are you taking a limo? There are so many ideas out there but make sure you have it all set in stone!
If you have multiple locations for your ceremony and reception, keep transportation in mind for your guests as well and add lots of buffer time with traffic and delays.
