You only have a week left until you say “I Do”! Before the big day arrives you want to make sure you have everything in order and checked off your to-do list. Here are ten of the top things you should do the week of your wedding!
1. Send Final Payments To Vendors
Pay all your vendors prior to the big day if possible! That way you won’t have them trying to track you down on your wedding day for payment. If you want to tip your vendors the day of, designate a family member or bridal party member to handle this.
2. Photo List
If you have in mind certain photos you absolutely want and people you want included, make sure you write out a list beforehand for your photographer.
3. Marriage License
Go to the courthouse or registration office and get your marriage license that week if you haven’t already. Make an appointment ahead of time if you can.
4. Break In Your Shoes
Make sure you break your wedding shoes in before your wedding day. Your feet will thank you! Wear them around the house that week and pack an extra pair for dancing just in case.

5. Emergency Kit
You never know what you’re going to need that day, so come prepared! Bring an emergency kit with everything from hair spray to bandages and a sewing kit.
6. Try On Your Wedding Dress
Get into your dress one last time before the big day and make sure everything fits perfectly!

7. Pack Your Honeymoon Bags
If you’re leaving for your honeymoon right after the wedding, make sure to have all of your bags packed beforehand, including your carry on bag! This will be one less thing you have to worry about the day of your wedding.
8. Check In With Your Bridal Party
Send an email to all your girls & guys and confirm that everyone knows where and when they need to be on the big day. Also, make a point of delegating any important tasks for the day.
9. Call Any Guests Who Didn’t RSVP
Reach out to anyone you haven’t heard from yet. It’s best to know the final guest numbers than to be surprised the day of with last minute guests.

Last but not least take a moment, relax and spend some quality time with your partner and make sure you get a good sleep the night before!
