The Wedding Checklist Every Bride and Bridesmaid Needs

A bride and her bridesmaids will spend months, if not years, planning for her wedding. All of the details of the day have to be planned out, organized and coordinated down to a T. On the day of the ceremony, everyone will want to sit back and enjoy the wedding and reception worry-free. And rightly so!

Despite the best laid plans, there is always the possibility of getting a hangnail, dropping a contact or losing a button. And with Pittsburgh’s unpredictable end-of-summer weather, humidity and wind can cause makeup mishaps or an updo’s undoing. These are the tiny inconveniences that, no matter how air-tight your wedding planning has been, can get in the way of a flawless day for the bride, the bridal party, or any of her guests. The secret to making sure the day goes off without a hitch is to be prepared for anything.

With a little forethought, you can ensure that the day is foolproof! We’ve pulled together the ultimate checklist of wedding day necessities. If your wedding planner does not provide these items, print out this list and ask one of the bridesmaids to gather these necessities for each of the restrooms at the reception venue.
