  1. Be Engaged!

  2. Get approval for wedding (with warden, unit manager, etc…)

  3. Make announcements to friends and family

  4. Meeting with case manager (if necessary)

  5. Confirm details with prison

    1. Set date

    2. How much time will you have?

    3. Can you stay to visit after?

    4. Will photos be allowed?

    5. Is cake/food allowed?

    6. How many guests?

    7. Who can officiate?

    8. Is he allowed to have a ring, restrictions?

    9. Is he allowed to wear a suit?

    10. How many guests are allowed?

  6. Figure out how much will it all cost?

    1. How far ahead do you have to send him money?

  7. Book officiant if not using prison chaplain

  8. Have guests/witnesses/officiant send in visit applications

  9. Get marriage licence from your home town

    1. Usually good for 90 days, check local regulations

  10. Photographer (buy picture credits, find out if cameras will be allowed)

  11. Shop for rings!

  12. Dress shopping!

    1. Pay attention to prison dress code

  13. Guests? How many? Invite? Get approval

  14. Test run make-up, hair, etc…

  15. Before wedding photos for partner, Special wedding night letter/photos, Boudoir photos

  16. Bring/send in ring and suit to be approved

  17. Plan pretend honeymoon, postcards, story

  18. Write your vows, or choose prewritten

  19. Plan ahead poses etc… for wedding day photos

  20. Enjoy your day!

  21. Have a special evening with friends or family after the wedding, you don’t want to be alone!

  22. Put announcement in the paper, or send announcement to friends!


Of course these steps could be different for everyone, but I wanted to make a simple guide to help brides-to-be remember everything that has to be done.
