A Packing List for Your Gay Wedding

Towards the end of wedding planning with my same-sex couples, I create a very detailed schedule for my client which includes a list of final payments, tip amounts and a packing list.  The packing list is very important...here are some things you don't want to forget when you are gathering everything together for your wedding day.  I ask my clients to have these for me all together at the rehearsal:

  • guestbook
  • nice pen
  • other ceremonial items such as:  unity candle; glass for breaking if you have a Jewish wedding; KetubahFoundation Covenant or other sacred text, if applicable
  • wedding favors
  • escort cards or seating chart and/or place cards
  • marriage license
  • dress shoes
  • champagne flutes if you are providing your own
  • cake knife and server if you are providing your own
  • ring bearer bowl or pillow if you have a ring bearer
  • table name or table number signs (if related to your theme and not provided by the venue)
  • diagram/floor plan of the venue telling me which table = which table name or number so I know which gets which sign
  • master list with names of each table and names of guests at each
  • photos of your family or yourselves through the years for display throughout the venue or on a special table, if applicable (nice touch!)
  • checks and tips
  • ceremony programs
  • if you don't have a planner:  a detailed schedule for the day; copies of all vendor contracts; list of groups for formal wedding photographs; 
What else are you packing up for your big gay wedding day?
