My blog is where I share detailed wedding and engagement stories on my journey as a wedding photographer. You'll also find blogs about great venues and planners to connect with and tips on how you can make your wedding day the BEST day possible.
On your wedding day you should want things to go as smooth as possible. From what I’ve seen it’s always the little things that get overlooked and can cause unneeded frustration and stress. And with so much planning and anticipation, tiny details that are missed can be a big drain on your energy and peace of mind.
Make sure you’re prepared for your wedding day with these items that help make everything easier.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone say “Hey, where’s the steamer?” to which someone replies, “I don’t know, I thought you brought it.” Don’t let this happen to you. Make sure on your wedding day checklist you have a steamer to keep your dresses and suits looking flawless before you walk down the aisle.
Check out this steamer from PurSteam. Heats up in one minute, portable and comes with a carrying case. Regardless of what brand you go with, make sure you have one with you just in case your dresses and suits show up wrinkled.
It always helps to have your favorite tunes with you on your wedding day. Keeps the vibes positive and helps you forget about the 2 million things that might be stressing you at any given moment. For me, listing to music is something I need daily and on the most important day of your life, don’t forget to keep the jams coming.
Check out this speaker from JBL. Crisp sound, rugged design AND it’s waterproof. Perfect for dealing with kids or spilled drinks on your wedding day without skipping a beat.
On your wedding day you need to piece together a survival kit that will help combat the unknown. You may need some of it or you may need all of it but making sure you have it is key. It should include bobby pins, safety pins, paper clips, gum, band-aids, aspirin/tylenol, hand sanitizer and whatever else you feel might be necessary for your big day.
Your best bet would be to find one online and then add a few items as needed. I found one on Amazon from Yacanna. It includes lots of great items and comes in a travel sized bag great for throwing in a purse on your way out the door. Toss in a few extras and you’re good to go.
On your wedding day, you’re probably going to want a drink or two. It’s a celebration and a glass of wine with your favorite people is never a bad thing. Although there are some bottles of wine with a regular twist cap, make sure you are able to pop open that bottle of grape juice with ease regardless.
Check out this electric opener from Ozeri complete with cordless operation and foil cutter. Stands alone by itself and illuminates during operation and charging. With the touch of a button you’re ready to have a sip. (or two)
In the smartphone era, we need power!! Whether it be to call a bridesmaid who needs directions or to call your wedding planner to request more snacks to your bridal suite, make sure you and everyone in the room have battery power all day long without having to remember a charging block or deal with a lack of wall outlets.
I found a pretty dope USB station online that has 6 ports and includes smart charging for two tablets, two iPhones and two android phones. It stands upright and comes in a few different colors. Making sure you have juice to power through your day is key. Don’t leave home without this bad boy. It can also come in handy for traveling of any sort, especially large groups.
On your wedding day, preparation is key. Leaving things until the mast minute can waste precious time and can stress you out more than you realize. Be sure to set aside time to plan your day well in advance and be sure to cover all your bases. If you want to check out any of the items in this list, click below!
