1. Put Together Your Emergency Kit
If you haven’t yet put together an emergency kit for your wedding day, now is the time to do so. This emergency kit could save your wedding day in the event of a broken heel, a rip, or a stain. The kit should contain things like a sewing kit, super glue, extra press-on nails, makeup, pain reliever, band-aids, small snacks like protein bars, moist towelettes, fingernail polish, safety pins, etc.

2. Place All Apparel in the Same Place
To ensure that nothing important gets left behind, put all of your apparel and accessories in the same place. From your wedding dress and underwear to your shoes, veil, wedding day jewelry and anything else that will be worn for your big day. This will help make sure that you forget nothing as you pack your car to go to the venue.

3. Pack a Lunch or Two
Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of the wedding day bliss, the bride and groom can forget to eat or simply can’t find time to sit down and enjoy a meal. Packing a quick lunch of sandwiches, fruit, veggies or other snacks can help ensure that you get the nutrition you need so you can keep your energy up for all of the excitement.

4. Create a Checklist for Packing Your Vehicle
If you’ll be the one taking all of the essentials to the venue, create a checklist for packing your car so you can ensure that nothing gets left behind. Include everything that will be needed for a successful wedding day, from the food to the tablecloths to the decor to the favors. Having the checklist will prevent you from trying to think and remember everything on the morning of your wedding, because it will all be written down.
