Top 10 things Brides forget to do
- Clean/re plate your engagement ring
Have you put your engagement ring and wedding ring together recently? Chances are your engagement ring has been worn a fair few months longer than your wedding ring has. If your wedding ring is new, it will highlight a dirty and scratched engagement ring. Take it to your local jewellery for a spruce up.
- Prepare your ‘touch up’ bag
Whilst you’re getting ready, there will 100s of distractions, and you may forget to bring a bag with your for makeup touch ups to your venue. Make sure to bring essentials such as lipstick, concealer, cotton pads and plasters!
- Plan for morning-of snack
I wish I did this. I didn’t eat anything until 3pm when I had a piece of salmon and promptly had stomach cramps afterwards. Keep yourself going with some muesli bars or some veggies ad hummus
- Bring your marriage license
You HAVE TO remember this – its an important part of your paperwork! Check with your local council to double check what you need to bring for the day. If in doubt, ask your bridesmaids to bring everything you have.
- Remember your phone charger
You will probably forget this, but with the taking photos and videos, your phones battery will probably deplete quickly – as your venue to keep hold of a charger just in case.
- Get your bridal gifts together
You may forget these, and kick yourself for it on the big day! Make sure to ask a trusted friend to remind you, or pop it on your list.

- Bring some spare comfy shoes
If you have any kind of new shoes or heels as your wedding day shoes, you won’t regret bringing some comfy shoes! Some flip slops or fold up flats will prove very useful when it comes to saving space!
- Getting ready playlist
This job may be delegated to one of your bridesmaids – creating a fab atmosphere with some getting-ready tunes will make your morning more special!
- Bring a change of Clothing if your dress is very heavy, or it’s a hot day
This might be a lifesaver if you’re getting married in the summer, and get to 6pm and realise you just can’t carry around your dress anymore. Free yourself up to dance the night away with a change of clothes
- Your accessories
It wasn’t until 11am that I realise I hadn’t put on my wedding bracelet! Make sure you keep all of your jewellery and accessories together so you can just grab them on the day!
Make sure to plan your day with at least 30 mins free time. If anything runs late or you need a minute to breathe, you’ll be grateful for the extra little bit of time!
