The wedding day checklist for the bride-to-be

Although there are plenty of things you can set up before your wedding day, like making appointments to have your hair and makeup done that morning, you might be forgetting about these five important things. Here's a helpful reminder.

The wedding day checklist for the bride-to-be

1. Have breakfast

You have a lot to think about and take care of on your wedding day.

  • Although you might feel too rushed and anxious to eat, having a hearty breakfast will help give you the energy you need to get through the day – especially if you're planning to have a little celebratory champagne with your bridesmaids.
  • Set some time aside to have a healthy breakfast before you dive into all your other tasks.

2. Find some time for yourself

This is a day that you want to remember forever, so if you find yourself getting caught up in a flurry of chaos, try to steal away for a few moments to be by yourself.

  • Take a few deep breaths and remember the big picture of what's going on – you're starting a whole new life with the person you love.

3. Pack your bridal bag

Before you head out of the house, check your bridal bag to make sure you have everything that you need: shoes, accessories, hairbrush, sewing kit, perfume, makeup, wedding vows and anything else you don't want to be without.

  • That way you won't have to make any emergency trips back to the house.

4. Talk to the photographer

Professional photographers know how to catch great shots at a wedding, but it doesn't hurt to talk to him or her the day of in order to point out certain people or things you want to make sure you get photographed.

  • The best of photographers won't know exactly who your relatives or best friends are, so be sure to give them a few pointers to ensure that you get the shots you want.

5. Pack for your honeymoon

If you're planning to take off the next day on your honeymoon, make sure you're packed for the trip.

  • You might not have time after the wedding (or the next morning) to get everything you need in order, so take a little time to get your bag packed before the big event.
