Wedding day coming up? A million details running through your head? Have no idea what you might need to bring to the hall? Here’s 8 things to make sure to do leading up to the wedding…plus a handy packing list to forestall any surprises.

 

During the Week Before

• Make sure, at your gown appointment, you can move around and dance in the gown; the gown should not be too tight by the arms.

 

• A few days before wedding, match up petticoats to gowns when packing. This way, they won’t get mixed up and cause confusion by the hall.

 

The Day Before

• Pack any medication that needs to come to the wedding.

 

• Try on any new shoes beforehand and walk around in them. Scrape them on cement so won’t be slippery. Pack a spare pair of shoes for the kallah and mother of kallah for dancing if needed.

 

The Wedding Day

• Make sure everyone eats proper meal the morning of the wedding.

 

• Make sure all girls wear a button-down shirt or zip-up hoodie…something that’s easy to get out of after getting their hair and makeup done.

 

• Make sure you have back up people for kibudim.

 

At the Hall

• When arriving at the hall, do this first: take the wedding gown out of plastic and fluff it out layer by layer. Petticoats also need to be shaken out and fluffed, layer by layer.
