Transcript:What to Pack for Your Wedding NightHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com. So you've planned every final detail for your big wedding day. But, what about after the wedding is over? Many brides overlook the planning for the wedding night until the last minute. Not to worry here's a list of important items for you to pack.
Pack Wedding Night WearOne of the most important things to pack for your wedding night is lingerie or a negligee. Remember to pick something fun and comfortable! If you have bought something new for this night, be sure to try it on a week or so beforehand to make sure it still fits comfortably. You might want to pack a pair of slip-ons as well.
Bring Wedding Night ToiletriesDon't forget your basic toiletries, including your razor and shaving gel. If you wear contact lenses or glasses, pack an extra pair.
You might already have all your makeup in a separate bag, but I'd separately pack any additional items that you might need.
Take a Change of ClothesBe sure to bring a comfortable change of clothes for the next day. If your hotel provides a fitness center, bring along a pair of work out clothes and sneakers.
If you're going to a warm tropical place, you might want to include swimming items, such as a bathing suit and sunblock. Even if you're not going away, your hotel might have a pool or hot tub so bring your swim gear anyway.
Don't Forget MedicationRemember to securely pack any prescription medications and other preventative medicine.
Wedding Night GadgetsPack your electronics, such as a small stereo and mp3 player - also your batteries, and chargers. Everything is a little sweeter with your favorite music.
Snacks for Your Wedding NightHopefully you'll dance your heart out at your reception - but you may not focus as much on the food! Just in case, bring some snack items to your hotel room.
Also keep an extra list of contact numbers inside your luggage at all times. Now you can relax in knowing you have all the things you need to make your wedding night as perfect as your wedding day!
