From finding a reception venue to arranging dining options, the wedding planning checklist can seem never-ending. While many of these tasks can be prepared well before the ceremony, there will likely be many final steps to take before you walk down the aisle. As you approach the home stretch, here are a few important dos and don’ts to consider during the final week before your wedding.


Confirm Vendors

Organizing vendor operations is like putting together a puzzle—if one party is out-of-place it can throw off the image of your wedding. That’s why it’s a good idea to connect with all your vendors—such as caterers, photographers, DJs, and officiants—and make sure they know when to arrive and what services they’ll provide.

Check–In With Guests

It’s considerate to send out a message asking if anyone has any final questions. If there are any guests that don’t have a place to stay or need rides, it’s better to take care of it now than on the actual day of the wedding.

Finalize Seating Arrangements

If you haven’t confirmed all RSVPs, now is the time to do so. With all guests confirmed, finalize your seating chart and make sure everyone has a place to sit at the reception. This is also a good time to create place cards if you haven’t done so already.


Pack in a Hurry

As you’re focused on getting your wedding attire together, it’s easy to forget about all the other things you might need after the ceremony—including honeymoon outfits. To make sure you are comfortable and stylish, pack all your suitcases ahead of time.

Wait to Deliver Items

From décor to chairs, there are many items that can be time-consuming to set-up and deliver. To avoid the headache of getting these details in order on the day of the wedding, it’s best to check with your venue and see if what can be delivered—and possibly set-up—ahead of time.

Forget About Your Future Spouse

While the week before your wedding will be a busy one, don’t forget to spend quality time with the person this event is all about: your spouse-to-be. Whether it’s a romantic dinner or a cozy night in with the TV, touching base with your partner will help you tie loose strings, stay positive, and remind you that you’re not alone in this celebration.
