A Wedding Day Detail Checklist

FILED IN: For Brides

As your wedding day gets closer & closer, so do the tasks you have to take care of. It can feel like there is all too much & it can easily get overwhelming. The last thing you want to do is forget something important. Especially when it comes to your wedding photos having a detail list can help you stay sane!

So, we’ve compiled a list of wedding day details you want to make sure you pack ahead of time. We suggest putting them all in one bag/box for your photographers the night before so nothing is missing. Nothing is more stressful than realizing you forgot your wedding band, shoes, or something else you really wanted photos of.


For the Bride:

All 3 rings

Your invitations & matching envelopes/stamps

Family heirlooms (think handkerchiefs, extra rings, broaches, etc.)

Any special ring box

Veil/Hair pieces already steamed

Wedding dress already steamed

Any special hangers

Necklaces & bracelets

Wedding shoes

Have all your bouquets & boutonnieres delivered to the getting ready suite

Any other special details or favors you want photographed

For your groom:

We hope this list helps keep your wedding day stress free & that you get gorgeous detail photos! If you’re wondering, the more details the better. As photographers, we love documenting the sweet details that make your day extra special. We’ll never be upset that you gave us “too much.” There is no such thing! Let us know if any items have special significance to you so we can spend extra time on them. As a bonus, we’ve created a printable for you to have before your wedding day below!
