Getting Ready Packing List for Your Wedding Day

You might not know this but each wedding usually includes a couple photographs of your wedding details, and if you’ve never heard of this idea before, make sure you ask your wedding day photographer. If your photographer is me, well then, I’ve got you covered. Let’s go over the list, shall we?

Wedding Day Packing List

  • Getting Ready Outfit or Robe– this goes for your bridesmaids too!
  • FOOD, need I say more? Snacks for the morning and a scheduled lunch will be helpful on the big day.
  • Your Wedding Day Timeline: you might need a reminder of when your vendors are showing up and who needs to be where at what time. If you want to be extra, provide this same list to your wedding party too.
  • Your own foundation and lipstick; you can talk to your makeup artist about this but it’s better to be a little over-prepared and you might want to touch up half-way through for pictures sake.
  • Vendor Tips; you’ll usually want to tip your vendors who have gone above and beyond for you.
  • Phone Charger, no doubt. You might use your phone a little more in the getting ready room especially if you’re using your own playlist to get ready.
  • Steamer, just in case! You might also check with your venue to see if they have one on site.
  • Comfy Shoes; you might want these later in the evening

Bridal Attire

  • Your Wedding Gown, on hanger
  • Undergarments, if you’re wearing any!
  • Veil, if you’re wearing one!
  • Shoes
  • Hair Accessories
  • Engagement Ring
  • Both Wedding Bands
  • Bridal Jewelry
  • Anything Sentimental
  • Garter
  • Perfume

  • Vest, if you’re wearing one!
  • Suspenders
  • Bow Tie or Tie

Wedding Details for Photographer

Chances are, your photographer will be using this list, along with many of the things you bring with you to get ready, like your rings, your perfume and any other special details. I recommend placing these items in a box for your photographer to quickly access.

  • Wedding Invitation Suite
  • Any Sentimental Items
  • Ring Box if your photographer doesn’t bring one

I hope this list helps you during your getting ready process on the wedding day. Please let me know in the comments if I left anything out!
