Week before your wedding to do list
1. Communicate and Touch Base with Vendors
Some of you might have a vendor for virtually every aspect of your wedding while others only have one or two vendors.
Regardless, the final week before your big day is a great time to touch base, confirm final details, and let the vendors know about any big changes.
- Keep a list. You have a lot on your mind in the week of your wedding, so write out a list of all of the vendors that you need to contact. After you get in touch with them, update the list and mark any special notes or information that is going to impact your wedding.
- Ask key questions. Ask questions that are relevant to the vendor you are contacting. If you are contacting the photographer, for example, ask them if they have any questions on the venue, package, or order that you want pictures.
- Alert them to changes. It is very possible that there will be changes to your plans from when you last talked to your vendor and now. Maybe there are changes in the food or in the guest list. Whatever they are, let the vendor know. You might not think they are important, but the changes could impact the vendor’s plan.
