Bride’s Diary: Last-Minute Wedding Planning Checklist

Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff grooms and brides-to-be who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature!

Well, it is about three weeks before the big day. I can’t believe how quickly time flew by since I got engaged a year ago! Since I still have a couple more important tasks to complete, I have made a wedding planning checklist of my last minute details that I am working on.

To-Do Before Wedding:

-Complete the final fitting for my wedding dress

-Order thank you cards and matching address labels. I’m loving these to go with my garden wedding theme:

-I still need to meet with my event planner tomorrow to finalize which linens, plates, and flowers I will use. I am completely inspired by these tablescapes below and am doing a combination of the two, with shades of pink, white and green flowers, off-white linens, bistro lights and hanging lanterns:

-Finalize ceremony vows

-Order wedding programs and wedding place cards (like these):

-Pick up bridesmaids gifts

– Make a schedule for the wedding weekend which includes a contact list of wedding vendors

– Attend the pre-wedding hair and makeup consultation (very excited for this one!)

-Meet with DJ for final walk-through at the venue

-Get marriage license (kind of a big one)

After I complete this list, then I will be able to breathe a bit easier! I can’t wait to unveil how everything turns out for my big day. Cheers!
