  • Test out zippers in each of your outfits.
  • Do a full dress rehearsal – from lingerie to your head dupatta! Everything ****
  • Pack your first night essentials: Creams / sheets / nightgown in another suitcase.
  • Double check your destination wedding bags. Count them.
  • Prepare extra cash envelopes – your pandit might suddenly ask you to gift someone in the middle of the wedding.
  • Pack your emergency wedding day kit!
  • Pen a note to your groom telling him how exciting it is to finally become his wife! It's something you both will always have and remember!
  • Confirm all vendors two days prior – even if they have already confirmed!
  • Get all your salon appointments done – two days prior.
  • Talk to your groom and see if he needs anything specific done (They all don’t communicate!)
  • Have one trustworthy person manage all your real jewellery! With lock and key.
  • Check in with your planner and see if there's anything else you need to know or want!
  • Clear your work to-do list. No work calls in the last week please!
  • Make sure you have one outfit and one pair of shoes as backup for an extra event.
  • Dear Grooms, send your bride surprise flowers!
  • Have someone fly out a day later than you on your destination wedding so in case you miss something important, they can get it!
  • Eat healthy and get plenty of rest in the last week!
  • Give your photographer a list of photos/poses you want to have photographed.
  • Talk to your In-Laws-To-Be and see if they need anything from you at the wedding.
  • Designate a special person to receive all your gifts and designate a room to keep them. Have the hotel give you an extra key so you have a backup.
  • Your room key needs two backups: give one to your mom and your BFF. Just in case, someone vanishes, there is at least one to open the door.
  • Make a full-on music playlist: Get your BFF to do it and keep at least 5 pen drives of it handy.
  • Have the hotel / resort give you extra sari drapers. Last minute, everyone needs help!
  • Prepare tip envelopes: Put in tips for the hotel staff / helpers / pujari / anyone who serviced you and give it to your mom. Add a thank you note!
  • Chargers: For your comp / for your phone / for your Bose Speakers. Carry extra battery life too. At least 3 of them so your mom, BFF and you have one each.
  • Make a getting-ready timeline so you have enough time for pictures!
Take a deep breath. Take a lot of these. They are unlimited. They are free. They are more than necessary. Please don't forget that!
