The Road To Wedded Bliss – Part Nine

Here at the Thrasher-Horne Center, weddings are second nature. Our massively accommodating Events Center has played host to hundreds of perfect weddings for couples all over the region. As a result, we’ve encountered numerous bridal checklists – all of which provided varying degrees of personal success for the new bride. After witnessing the best and the worst, we’ve assembled the following as your ultimate go-to list, which we’ll be doling out in monthly installments to keep you on schedule until your big day.


YOU’VE MADE IT! The month of your wedding, and the end of our Road To Wedded Bliss blog series. There are just a few more minor details to iron out before you head down that aisle. If for any reason you need to revisit our previous months’ wedding checklists available. If not, we shall continue forward with Part Nine of our yearlong wedding planning guide. Below, you’ll find the last steps on the path to a perfectly smooth blissful wedding.


Staying organized will keep you on track while you try to make your wedding memorable, awesome and creative. The items on our monthly checklists are your perfectly portioned must-do’s to make this spectacular event come together in a way that only we know how.

  • Finalize payments to vendors. Keeping them happy is essential.
  • Pick up your dress or have it delivered. Try it on so you know it’s perfect!
  • Give directions to transportation drivers.
  • Break in your shoes again. Make sure you can dance the night away.
  • Enjoy the rehearsal dinner and then try to get some rest.
