race to the aisle: final planning tips.

Is your BIG day just days away? It is starting to feel a bit surreal that after all the planning the day could actually arrive? (um, note to self: that’s what supposed to happen!!) Below is a list of helpful hints to glance through as you cross off your last to-dos before you say I do!

todolist-300x262

CONFIRM & RECONFIRM: No matter how many times you’ve ‘checked’ with your vendors, make a list and reconfirm full details and write any expectations down so you are all on the same page. Also create a sample timeline so you know who to expect, where and when! It takes the guess work out of the morning-of.

MAKE USE OF THE MAIDS: Grab your girls and get together! Finish up any last minute projects (ceremony programs, favors, menus, etc.) Also take a quick ride to drop off everything necessary for the reception. Feel free to bring a list so the person setting up knows exactly what you want. Everything done? Have a girls night in with some wine, sweets and sweats! Girl time is the best time.

SWEET DREAMS: Are you having nightmares of missing the ceremony? Waking up super late? Losing your wedding dress? Get into a routine before bed to keep calm and have sweet dreams. Try a relaxing bath, cup of tea or warm milk and some reading. Stay OFF your phone/computer right before bed (they super-stimulate your mind) and avoid any chocolate (it gears up crazy thoughts!)

LEADER OF THE PACK: Whether you are honeymooning right away, taking a mini-moon or staying at a local hotel suite – be sure to make a list and check it twice. Pack ahead of time and always add some extra outfits ‘just in case.’ Don’t forget something sexy for your wedding night too! Also – pack a go-to bag for the limo/party bus. Don’t forget a plain white sheet or towel to cover your gorgeous gown while heading to the reception. You’d be surprised how many things spill!

LOVE NOTES: Take five minutes to write a note to your future-hubby. Handwritten and stuck into his tux, or even a note in his phone you can remind him to check. It’ll be the perfect thing to wake up to on the big day. It is also a great keepsake!

DRESS TO IMPRESS: Finalize that dress fitting! As crazy as it sounds, you’d be surprised how just before your wedding you may gain/lose a few pounds. I actually wound up going the week of my wedding for one extra fitting! Be sure you are comfortable (literally sit, stand, dance and move around in your dress – test it out!) You will be wearing it for hours on end and you will want it to be PERFECT.

Most importantly – BREATHE!

1th

Your big day is just moments ahead and you should make the most of each and every second. Dance, laugh, love and enjoy it! It goes way too fast and some of the best memories are yet to be made. Congratulations!

TGIF! Hoping you all have a nice long weekend ahead of you! Today we are featuring some bridal eye candy for the Mrs. Why Knot readers.

Her gorgeous engagement ring & glam wedding band were accompanied by a ‘Something Blue’ Mrs. Why Knot bracelet gifted to her by her sister-in-law (and bridesmaid!) It was a perfect sentimental gift for her big day!
