This list should cover what most wedding ceremonies and receptions require however you most likely will not need everything on this list. Of course there may also be items on this list for those wedding ideas that are unique to your wedding day. Many of the items will be taken care of by the wedding party, parents, and vendors, however it is still nice to have a list to use for reference and for your sanity! Many brides will suggest that you have the items listed above packed and ready-to-to before the big day. Check and re-check that the items are in fact packed before closing or securing the boxes.
