10 Tips on Prepping for the Wedding Day
Create a timeline for your big day. Creating a timeline of when events should start and stop is a good way to help you stay organized and on time. Even if you aren’t positive on when events are going to end, focus on when events are supposed to start so you can have a general idea.
Set time aside to do a practice run for getting ready a few days before the wedding so you know how much time it will take you to get ready before the wedding and keep you on track.
Breakfast is incredibly important, DON’T skip it because it may be the only meal you eat all day. It doesn’t need to be heavy in case you are worried about bloating, so at least eat a light breakfast.
Music! Have a playlist set for the morning of your wedding to help you out and de-stress. Having songs that you love will make you even more excited for your big day and help forget about the nerves.
Have your bridesmaids get ready before you do. Having their makeup and hair finished and done, you will have less to worry about. Plus with your makeup done last, it will last longer throughout the days activities.
Have an emergency kit!
Your day-of-wedding emergency kit should include:
- Water & Snacks
- Mini sewing kit
- Safety Pins
- Dry Shampoo
- Lip Gloss
If you aren’t worried about the tradition of seeing the brides’ dress before the wedding, then take the majority your wedding photos the week before the wedding so you won’t have to worry about scheduling out a time slot the day of. This will help your day go smoother instead of trying to get the wedding photos with the right lighting while your guests are waiting.
As the biggest day of your life, it is also very exhausting so it’s important to take some time to yourself and have some alone time. Reflect on your life and how you are closing one chapter on your life and starting a new one. Plus it may be the only time you have peace of mind throughout the whole day.
Make sure you have all your legal documents ready for your wedding. If not you, then make sure someone responsible can pick up your marriage license to be signed on the day of the wedding. With so much stuff going on that day, it’s important to make sure you have that crossed off your list.
After the long day full of excitement, ask the caterer to pack up food for you and the groom since you may not have enough time to eat. Once you get home, you’ll be glad to have left overs.
All these tips are very important but the most important is to enjoy your special day! Be happy! This is a great day we’re you get to pledge your love to your significant other and make plans for the future together!
