When your wedding day rolls around, you have a million different things to think about and prepare. The last thing you want to be doing when your photographer arrives is scrambling around on a scavenger hunt trying to gather up all of your bridal details. You should be getting pampered, and hanging out with your bridesmaids and enjoying yourself! That’s why i’ve put together a comprehensive list of items for you to prepare ahead of time, so you have one less thing to think about and worry over when your wedding day arrives.

These details are so important because they help tell the whole story of your wedding day. (The grooms details are important too, check out this blog post for that list!) My job is to capture your wedding and to tell your love story as accurately as possible, and the details are a huge part of that.

Also important to note, bridal details are the very first thing that I photograph at every wedding, so having them prepped and ready to go also means time is being utilized more efficiently. I love when my time is used in the most productive way possible; It’s good for me, and for you too!

Here are the suggested items to have prepared:

  • Wedding Dress
  • Dress Hanger
  • Wedding Rings (yes, BOTH!)
  • Engagement Ring
  • Ring Box (We love the customizable ones from The Mrs. Box!)
  • Wedding Shoes
  • Veil or Hairpiece
  • Garter
  • Earrings
  • Necklace
  • Any Additional Jewelry
  • Keepsakes (Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue, handkerchiefs, sixpence/pennies, or any special items.)
  • Perfume
  • Invitations (Full Suite, AND Save the Date!)
  • Wedding Bouquet or
  • Gifts/Letters from your Fianc√©
  • Purse or Clutch
  • Vow Books

It’s important to note that this list is extensive, and most brides will not have every item on this list. Just gather the things you do have, and don’t worry about scrambling to incorporate the ones you don’t!
