Bridesmaid Checklist: Did You Finish Packing Yet?

Being a bridesmaid is not all that easy, sometimes you get tasks thrown on you last minute because you never know what’s going to happen at a wedding. In order to be as prepared as you possibly can for the big day, you’ll need a packing list to make sure you don’t miss anything.

What You’ll Be Wearing

  • Bridesmaid dress
  • Strapless bra, pasties, adhesives
  • Button down / loose jacket: This is for when you’re getting your hair and makeup done for the wedding, wear something that’ll be easy to take off without ruining your finished look
  • Heels: Wear the same pair you wore for your dress fitting and alterations to ensure the skirt length stays the same 
  • Jewelry: Rings, bracelets, necklaces… you name it
  • Sneakers / sandals / comfy shoes: Get ready to get down on the dance floor 

Wedding Day

  • Bouquet: Double check with the bride or planning coordinator to make sure the bouquets will be delivered at the agreed upon time 
  • Gift: Even though you’re a bridesmaid, you’re still expected to bring gifts for the newlywed couple 
  • Cell phone charger / battery pack
  • Anything the bride has asked you to bring 

What Goes Into Your Makeup Bag 

  • Your emergency kit from Leading Ladies: Did you know that every full dress and/or a top & bottom combination from us comes with an emergency kit completed with pasties, bandaids, double sided tape, and a sewing kit?
  • Makeup: Even if you already have a makeup artist lined up for the wedding, you should probably still have a few basics in case of an emergency 
  • Toothbrush & toothpaste
  • Deodorant & perfume 
  • Feminine products

This is just a sample checking list, if you have any more personal items, do remember to add them to this list. A wedding day should be fun and enjoyable, it should not be spent panicking and stressing over every little detail. Most of all, being a bridesmaid is a special experience that you so rarely get to do with your besties, make the most out of it while you can!
