You worked so hard with your wedding planner to come up with the perfect seating chart for your guests; so it’s crucial to make sure it’s in your suitcase and on its way to your wedding destination! A helpful tip is to pack it with the table numbers and tent cards for an organized and stress free set up.

A major detail that is often overlooked. Your guest book will be filled with the words of your loved ones and so many memories! Make sure to pack it in a safe place and store pens or markers in a plastic bag to avoid leakage.

#6. Chargers

Between phone, watch, laptop, and camera chargers, make sure you pack them all. Also do your research ahead of time to make sure you do not need a travel adapter for electronics, as some destinations —especially abroad—may require them.

#7 Sunscreen

Another crucial item that is often forgotten. It’s more than possible to have a beautiful bridal glow while also protecting your skin. The sun’s UV index will vary depending on your wedding location. When you check the weather, make sure to check the UV index as well, so you and your guests can be prepared. You do not want to look back on your gorgeous wedding photos and wish that you wore sunscreen.

#8 Contacts and Glasses

Whether you plan to rock your stylish frames or opt for the convenience of a fresh set of contacts, it’s important to have both on hand. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the sun, make sure to pack extra lenses and contact solution for the trip. Contacts can also be the ideal choice of eyewear to go under your honeymoon sunglasses!

While it’s not ideal, there are some mishaps that can happen on your wedding day that you should be prepared for.

#10 Cash

As you embark on your magical day, it’s important to show appreciation for those helping make it happen. Having cash on hand makes it easier to tip your vendors when the time is right. These vendors may include: hair and makeup team, photographer, caterer, wedding planner, florist, bartenders and musicians.

Although packing can be a little stressful, it also means you’re getting closer to your big day. Start adding things to your suitcase a week or so before you leave, to allow yourself a little time to make adjustments and feel confident that you have everything. So, pack your bags and get excited because you are just about ready to walk down the aisle!
