The big day is fast approaching. You’ve got the date set, the venue booked and the invites out.
Every bride-to-be stresses about her wedding day. What if it rains? Will the MC play something he shouldn’t? Will the food be any good?
Some things are out of your control, but others – you can do a little preparation to ensure your special day goes as smoothly as possible.
- Get Your Beauty Sleep
This one’s a no brainer. You may be fighting the butterflies or going over a checklist in your head. But you’re not doing yourself any favours by lying awake half the night. Get rested so you’re looking your best and the makeup artist doesn’t have to work overtime.
- Give Yourself Enough Time to Get Ready
Enjoy a glass of champagne with your bridesmaids, get your makeup applied and your hair styled. This is the one time you want to relax and enjoy yourself – you don’t want to rush this process.
- Wear a Dress Shirt While Your Hair is Styled
Before you sit down to get your hair styled, look at what you’re wearing. Will you have to pull your t-shirt over your beautifully styled hair? Wear a button-up shirt so you won’t mess up your hair, and upset your stylist.
- Break in your shoes
You’re going to be walking around in these shoes for hours. Be kind to your feet and wear your new shoes a few hours a day before the wedding.
- Hire a Wedding Planner
Some couples may see this as an unnecessary expense, but these magic makers will take care of the planning for you, minimising potential problems and unforeseen drama. This gives you more time to relax and enjoy yourself.
- Pack a Wedding Day Survival Kit
Include a small first aid kit, a tampon, a chocolate fix, aspirin, a stain remover pen or anything else that springs to mind that could help with a small emergency.
- Watch the Alcohol
No one expects you not to drink – it’s a celebration after all! But it’s a day you want to remember. Save the public intoxication for your friends’ weddings.
- Bring Flats for the Reception
Your feet will thank you – especially if you didn’t pay attention to tip number 4
- Nominate Someone to Rescue You From Chatty Cathy
There’s always one at every wedding. It could be a long-lost relative that wants to regale you with stories, or a friend from childhood. Ask someone to politely pull you away when they notice you in a trapped conversation.
- Prep the DJ
Give the DJ a list of crowd-pleasers and your favourite songs . This ensures you’re not stuck listening to Gloria Gaynor or Celine Dion (if you don’t want to). Most importantly – cut loose and dance!
