Best Ways to Prepare for Your Wedding Day
Big Day Timeline
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 organised and on schedule. 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.
A Practice Run
Set some valuable time aside to do a practice run of getting ready a few days before the wedding, so you know how much time it will take you to prepare for your wedding and keep you on track.
Most Important Meal of the Day
Breakfast is incredibly important, DON’T skip it because it may be the only meal you eat for a while. It doesn’t need to be heavy, in case you are worried about bloating, but at least eat a light breakfast.
Prepare the Tunes
Music! Have a playlist set up for the morning of your wedding day to help motivate and de-stress. Having songs that you love will make you even more excited for your big day and help to forget about the nerves.
Have your bridesmaids get ready before you do. Having their makeup and hair finished and done, will leave you with less to worry about. Plus with your makeup done last, it will last longer throughout the days activities.
Pack an Emergency Kit!
Your day-of-wedding emergency kit should include:
- Water & Snacks
- Mini sewing kit
- Safety Pins
- Dry Shampoo
- Lip Gloss
Pick the most responsible bridesmaid, and give your emergency wedding kit to her to look after.
Take Your Wedding Photography, Before the Wedding
If you aren’t worried about the tradition of seeing the brides’ wedding dress before the big day, then take the majority your wedding photos the week before the wedding. This way you won’t have to worry about scheduling out a time slot on your big day. This will help your day to go smoother instead of trying to get the wedding photos with the right lighting while your guests are waiting.
Pack a Picnic
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.
