Packing Lists: Wedding Night

  • Copy of reservation information

  • Personal toiletries
  • Prescription medications
  • Getaway outfit – if you can change before leaving and entrust your gown to a family member or friend, you will have less to manage the day after
  • Storage bag for gown or tuxes – if you don’t have time to change, make sure you bring whatever is necessary to properly store your formalwear safely
  • Clothes needed for morning after breakfast, if applicable
  • Comfortable and appropriate clothes for traveling
  • Something special and intimate for the wedding night – OR – cozy jammies because you will definitely be exhausted and may want to save the “celebratory” items for the honeymoon!
  • A snack – you might actually need one. Many couples never get to eat with their guests on the wedding day.
