Wedding arrangements is full of tasks. Everything from decorations to the honeymoon destination, you have to arrange before the big day.

7 Essential Things to Check before Your Wedding

Appoint a person to take care of all the Gifts

Undoubtedly; there are a lot of gifts to be taken care of during your special day. These gifts can range anything from fancy looking frames to money. In order to take care of all these things, you need to appoint a person to take a note of all the gifts you receive during the wedding day and take care of them for you until you’re done with the wedding. The confidant can be anyone, the best man, MOH or even the wedding planner. But remember to make arrangement before you hold on to your head and utter, “Oh! I forgot.”

Get a Marriage License
Despite all the exotic flowers, vibrant decorations and lovely wedding costumes there is still one essential thing required for wedding. And that’s a marriage license. This is the most important chore that you need to wind-up during the tiresome wedding-preparation week. You and your soon-to-be-spouse are required to visit the city hall for applying to get this certificate. Do this at least 2 weeks before your wedding to save yourself some hustle and bustle.

Pack Honeymoon Luggage

It can happen that you must have forgotten to pack your honeymoon luggage amid all the wedding preparation and excitement. There are several things, most probably dresses and shoes, which you won’t like to leave while going on your honeymoon. If you’re that person who easily forgets things, you can give the responsibility to your BFF or someone close to ensure you do it way before the wedding ceremony.

Plan Must-Have Photo Shoots
Your big day will not come again. So, it’s better to plan photo shoots, at least some, before your wedding day. As the time will be limited on the special day, you probably don’t want the photographer’s time to be wasted on brainstorming locations, scenes, and poses to capture for you on the big day.

Prepare an After-Party/Cocktail Hour Playlist

The wedding is not over after you and your spouse exchange vows. It’s time to celebrate the occasion in party style. Whether you’ve decided to play music from your smartphone or arranged for professionals to rock the show, be sure to have a playlist. You probably don’t want to run out of music when you get the chance to relax after the tiresome marriage chore is complete.

Signing Thank You Notes
All your guests and vendors involved with your wedding requires a beautiful thank you note from you. And why not! They’ve actually brought you a nice wedding gift and took some time to give you company on your big day. A hand-written thank you note is much impressive and will bring you more blessings.
