The countdown to your great Indian wedding has begun! And, even though your mind might be on overdrive and overwhelming feelings may be taking over your being, this is no cause for worry. These feelings of anxiety are completely normal and are bound to happen to couples who are about to get hitched at some time or the other. Besides, there remain just a few things to check up on to make sure that everything is just perfect! Here’s a wedding checklist for things to complete in the last two weeks before your wedding.
1. Calling all brides to be! It’s that time when you finally get to pick up your beautiful wedding gown or lehenga from your wedding dress designer and bring it home! Don’t forget, this is your last fitting, so make sure all is fine with your wedding attire. The groom and is groomsmen will also have to do the same.
2. Now’s the time to call up those guests who haven’t yet responded to your wedding invitations. Note down the final guest count too.
3. Co-ordinate with the wedding caterer and adjust the per head count now that you know the approximate number of guests attending your wedding party.
4. You may also want to confirm the hotel reservations and transportation for your out-of-town guests. You can do this with the help of your wedding planner.
5. Confirm the date of your wedding party rehearsal dinner or lunch with your family and those who you wish you attend.
6. If you happen to be leaving for your honeymoon almost immediately after the wedding, it may be a good idea to get a hold of the tickets for the soon-to-be-married couple. Exciting times these are!
7. And, don’t forget to finish of packing for your honeymoon with your partner. You don’t want to be left doing this the day before your wedding!
8. Have your partner sit down with you so that you both can start writing down toasts that will be said out aloud at your wedding rehearsal.
9. Make any payments that are remaining, be it to the wedding caterers, florists, musicians, photographers etc.
10. If you haven’t decided on assigned seating for your guests, have a chat with your wedding planner, and he or she will fix this for you. You will of course have to be present to assign tables and seating to your guests.
