Drafting a wedding to-do list before the D-day is synonymous with making hay while the sun shines. One can never be too careful in avoiding disappointments on the supposed happiest day of one’s life. You would be amazed at the number of things that could go wrong in the limited time-frame of your wedding day. I once went for a wedding ceremony where the wedding rings could not be accounted for because the planner omitted it on her wedding to-do list.
After several weeks of planning, you owe it to yourself and spouse to enjoy the day you’ve dreamed of your whole life. It’s a day to relax and enjoy the first day of your conjugal life. The worse thing on this day is to fix the messed-up things and running around on your wedding day. A well-organized wedding to-do list will help lift the burden. Let’s take a walk “down the aisle,” shall we?
Wedding Morning To-Do List
As we would gladly agree that the way our mornings play out rightly determine the rest of our day. Also, your wedding morning vibe automatically flows down to the entire day. Here are a couple of things to include of your morning wedding to-do list:
- Make sure you have a light breakfast because you don’t want to run the entire day on an empty stomach, as well as visiting the restroom now and then.
- Remind yourself why you’re getting married: This may sound crazy but you are about to have one of the hectic days in your life, and the only thing to keep you sane is constantly reminding yourself why you’re getting married.
- Assign someone to be in charge of all dine minutes deliveries and payments.

Things To-do At The Reception
Don’t stress much. There is a lot to do at the reception. The reception would drain you. However, you could outsmart it. Here’s how;
- Plan to pay every vendor immediately after the reception. Package the pay in a labeled envelope for easy identification.
- Assign a trustee to your gifts and presents to ensure they are safe.
If needed, introduce the person in charge of your reception to the planner, to avoid contradicting opinions.
- Finally, take a few minutes to enjoy your wedding because that might be all you get for the day.
In conclusion, planning a wedding is no joke. It could be as frustrating as working overtime for two weeks straight. Nonetheless, having a wedding to-do list that works could save you a lot of stress.
