One Week Until the Wedding: What Should You Be Doing?

As you prepare for your wedding day, don’t forget about the symbolic and precious rings that will seal your commitment to each other. Ensuring the rings are safely stored and ready for the ceremony is just as important as all the other details you’re meticulously planning. The exchange of wedding rings is a significant moment during the wedding ceremony, representing everlasting love and unity. So, take a moment to check that the rings are in a secure place and ready to be worn on your fingers when the time comes.

Now, as you focus on finalizing the seating chart, organizing attire, confirming arrangements, and preparing for your honeymoon, remember to also include the rings in your checklist. With these vital tasks taken care of, you can approach your wedding day with more confidence and peace of mind, knowing that every detail, including the precious rings, has been thoughtfully accounted for.

You have been planning your wedding for months – maybe even for a whole year. It’s finally coming down to the wire and in one week, you will be a blushing, beautiful bride. You’re probably not feeling that calm. In fact, you’re probably in a panic wondering if you’ve forgotten something or worrying that something won’t go right. Take a deep breath and check off the following tasks that you should be taking care of in the week before your wedding so that your day will go smoothly and wonderfully!

In the whirlwind of wedding preparations, every detail counts to make your special day flawless, including taking care of yourself. As a bride, you’ll be on your feet a lot, from finalizing decorations to rehearsing your walk down the aisle. It’s crucial to ensure your feet are comfortable and well-supported, especially if you have flat feet. Integrating insoles designed for flat feet into your wedding shoes can be a game-changer, offering the comfort and support you need to glide through your big day with ease.


Have you finalized your seating chart? If not, now is the time to make the final edits. Make any adjustments based on your RSVP list and take a few minutes to look over the final product. Do you have a fairly balanced chart? Have you placed too many of the loud and jolly family members at one table? Look over your list and make sure it’s perfect so you can put this part of the planning to rest.

The Attire

It’s time to get every part of your wedding day attire together and organized so it will be ready to go to the venue with you. If you wait much longer, you could risk forgetting something. Make sure you have any undergarments needed, the dress, accessories to the dress (such as belts, etc.), shoes, jewelry, and anything you plan to change into for the reception. Also, it’s important that the groom organizes his wedding day attire as well.


At this point, every vendor should have been booked and confirmed already, but it’s time to make last minute confirmations. This will give you peace of mind that everything is moving forward as scheduled. Also, you’ll want to make any last minute confirmations for your honeymoon arrangements as well, and for reservations for out of town guests.


In addition to confirming your reservations and other honeymoon arrangements, you’ll want to go ahead and pack so you won’t have to worry about it in the coming days. Be sure to have your passport and any other required documentation ready if you’re honeymooning out of the country.

Rehearsal Dinner

Confirm your rehearsal dinner arrangements and attendance and make any necessary adjustments based on your attendance confirmations. Go over any rehearsal dinner plans that you haven’t had time to think about or finalize. Pick up your attire for the rehearsal dinner if you haven’t done so already, and have a fitting first to be sure everything is perfect.

Now, once you’ve completed this list, you can really relax and breathe a little before the big day arrives. If you still find yourself panicking and unsure of whether you’ve forgotten something, go over your wedding planning notebook and make a list of the things you have or haven’t completed. This will help ensure that nothing has been overlooked.
