When you put together a list for your wedding day you have to think through everything you will need starting from the minute you wake up to get ready all the way to walking down the aisle then leaving your reception. There are so many little items that you want or need to have. But I have a list for you with five items that you need that you might not think about.
I want you to be the most prepared for your wedding day so let’s get to it.
Bose Sound Player
You have your playlist (because I gave you a perfect one here but you don’t want it to play quietly on a phone in the corner of the room. You need something that everyone can hear and break out into dance at any point. One that you can bring with you anywhere you go but hey it’s gotta be cute too right?!
This is my favorite one. I love how small but loud it is and it is so easy to throw in a bag or put in any small space.
2. Snack Bar
I am going to let you in on a little secret here, brides struggle eating on their wedding day. Yes, you will have food for all your girls and yourself but with trying to take in every moment, get yourself ready and get hair + makeup done, you will be occupied more than you think and probably forget to really eat. This is where a bar can come in handy - if you need to eat something that isn’t messy, that doesn’t take you using a fork and knife, or that can be eaten. You can easily and quickly grab this. YOU NEED TO EAT. Regardless of what your stomach is feeling (nerves, we all know) you need to have a little something to give you energy and keep you going.
This is pretty self explanatory. You will use your phone all day (bride, hopefully you will unplug for the day)! But all your family and your girls will use their phones to take photos or text people about where to be and when. You don’t want a phone to die while you are listening to your bomb playlist. Pack an extra one just in case, your Sound Player will also need to stay charged!
Alright, Em, you lost me. Listen here, ever put on your lipstick and then had a quick sip of your coke then put it down to realize half of your lipstick came off on your cup? Don’t let that happen by drinking through a straw! You might lose a touch of the shine but it will be much easier to fix with a little gloss rather than having your lips re-done when you realized you forgot to drink water before walking down the aisle.
Your makeup artists will have some cool gadgets to help this not happen as well but it’s always best to take the safe way right?

5. Polaroid Camera
Everyone will tell y’all to stop and look around throughout your big day. It is hard to remember it all but you want to remember each special moment or funny moment. Your photographer and videographer will capture all of your favorite moments but hey, let’s bring back the polaroids! Get this super cool polaroid so that when you see your girls dancing in their getting ready robes, see your momma for this first time, make a toast before walking into the reception, pray before your ceremony, etc you can take a quick snapshot of the moment. Best part about this? When you and your new hubby have a whole week on your honeymoon together and don’t have photos yet you can look back at these moments to remember together and to talk about your special day. How fun!
