San Antonio Wedding Essentials: A Checklist for Last-Minute Prep

Howdy, future brides and grooms! Your big day in San Antonio is almost here, and we want to help you get ready without any fuss. We’ve made a simple checklist to make sure you’ve got everything under control for your special day. Let’s do this!

1. Final Dress Fitting

First things first – it’s time to try on your wedding dress one last time. You want to make sure it fits just right and looks amazing on you! Wear your wedding shoes and any jewelry you’ll put on. This will help you see how it all comes together.

Extra tip: Walk around a bit in your dress to make sure you can move comfortably.

2. Confirm All Vendors

Now, double-check with all the people helping with your wedding. Make sure everyone knows what they need to do on your big day. Keep a list with all your vendors’ names and phone numbers. That way, you can reach them easily if you need to.

Extra tip: Make sure your vendors know the date and place of your wedding. They should be ready for everything.

3. Marriage License

Don’t forget the legal stuff! You need a marriage license to tie the knot, so make sure you have it ready. Check the rules in San Antonio for getting a marriage license. You might need to visit the county clerk’s office.

Extra tip: Keep the license in a safe spot, so you don’t lose it.

4. Seating Arrangements

If you’re telling your guests where to sit at the reception, it’s time to finish the plan. You want everyone to have a great time! Make a chart that shows where each person will sit at the tables.

Extra tip: Make a few extra copies in case you need them.

5. Packing for the Honeymoon

If you’re going on your honeymoon right after your wedding, start packing early. You don’t want to rush on your wedding day. Make a list of everything you need for your honeymoon and double-check it.

Extra tip: Keep your passports and travel documents in a safe spot – you don’t want to lose them!

6. Final Payments

Make sure all the money you owe to people and places is ready to go. This includes your vendors, the venue, and anyone else helping with your big day. Make a schedule for when each payment is due and set reminders so you don’t forget.

Extra tip: Have some cash on hand for last-minute expenses.

7. Emergency Kit

Get ready with a kit full of helpful things like safety pins, a sewing kit, stain remover, and pain relievers. You never know when you might need them! Give this kit to someone you trust, like a bridesmaid or groomsman.

Extra tip: Don’t forget to pack some snacks and water to stay energized all day.

8. Wedding Rings

Double-check to make sure you have your wedding rings ready for the ceremony. You don’t want to be searching for them at the last minute! Ask someone you trust to be in charge of the rings and make sure they have them.

Extra tip: Keep the rings in a special, safe spot so they’re easy to find.

9. Practice Hair and Makeup

If you’re doing your hair and makeup or having a friend help, do a practice round. You want to make sure you’ll look your best. Take pictures during the practice session to see how it looks in photos.

Extra tip: Use waterproof makeup in case you get emotional.

10. Stay Relaxed

The day before your wedding can be a bit stressful, but try to stay relaxed. Spend time with your loved ones, get a good night’s sleep, and remember that everything will be amazing. Plan something fun with your closest friends or family. It’s a great way to relax and enjoy some quality time together.

Extra tip: Write a sweet letter to your future spouse and exchange it on your wedding day – it’s a calm and loving gesture.
