LDS Wedding Checklist: On Your Wedding Day

Don’t forget breakfast- It’s going to be a wonderful day, but it’s also going to be pretty long. The last thing you want to do on your special day is pass out at the temple or while you’re taking pictures. Eat a good breakfast that will keep you full for a few hours. Also, pack snacks in case you start to feel hungry.

Give yourself a lot of time to get ready- Plan out how much time you’ll need to get your makeup and hair done. If you plan a solid amount of time, you’ll be able to take care of sudden blemishes and make sure you look your absolute best.

Allot time for traffic- If you’re driving to the temple, remember that traffic happens. Give yourself plenty of time to get there. If you plan more than enough time, you won’t be rushing or stressed. Going to the temple is the most important part of your day, so don’t go there in a rush.

Take a fix-it kit with you- You may not think you’ll need one, but as the scripture says, “if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear” (D&C 38:30). Pack things like safety pins, needle and thread, a little first aid kit (don’t forget the ibuprofen!), bobby pins, makeup, back-up panty hose, breath mints, etc. All these things and more can keep you from sweating about the small details.

LDS Wedding Checklist: After the Fact

Write thank-you notes- When you go through your wedding gifts, have someone take count of what each person gave you so that you can write more personal thank you notes. Once you’ve gone through your wedding gifts, make sure you write thank you notes to everyone. This little act of gratitude can go a long way in keeping relationships close, and people will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

If you follow this LDS wedding checklist, your special day is sure to turn out the way you've always dreamed!
