Check Over Your Wedding Day Checklist
Organisation is essential while planning your wedding. You should create a wedding day checklist well in advance of the wedding so that you can easily keep track of everything you need to bring to the venue and cross things off as you do so.
We advise you to double-check the list or ask for the assistance of a second pair of eyes.
Check In With Your Wedding Suppliers
It is important to check in with your wedding suppliers to make sure that they have the correct timings and any last-minute questions. This will give you peace of mind knowing everyone is ready!
Spend Time With Your Friends
The day before the wedding, try your best to unwind. One idea is to have a sleepover with your friends or the entire bridal party after your rehearsal. But while you’re having a fantastic time, don’t forget to get some rest!
What can you do with your bridesmaids the night before the wedding? Do something that will truly help you relax and that you all enjoy.
Drink Lots Of Water
This idea shouldn’t be surprising given that our bodies are made up of 70% water. Water will do wonders for your body!
Drinking plenty of water will not only lower your anxiety and heighten your energy levels, but it will eliminate any toxins and enhance the complexion of your skin, which your MUA will appreciate so much!
Best of all, you will feel great! You will feel healthy and less bloated in the morning if you drink water and avoid alcohol.
Pack Your Personal Items
Along with the usual wedding necessities, you will want to be sure to cross some personal items off your list as well. This will help you to relax before your wedding day, because even though it is never a good idea to overpack, you don’t want to show up to your wedding day unprepared.
Do Something That Puts Your Mind At Ease
Use a method you like to get in the appropriate frame of mind the night before your wedding day, whether it’s yoga, meditation, breathing, a quiet walk, or dinner with your best friends.
You can even spend some one to one time with your partner, talking about your feelings for the big day ahead and watching your favourite movie together.
On your wedding day, you will be so caught up chatting away with friends and family that you won’t have much time to spend together.
Take some time to reflect on your relationship. Allow yourself to enjoy the wonderful feeling of having found the love of your life.
Do something that you enjoy doing that helps you feel relaxed, whether this is reading a good book, doing some yoga, watching a film or having a warm bubble bath.
Remember Why You Are Getting Married
There are countless reasons that could be to blame for pre-wedding anxiety.
One of our favourite ways to relax before your wedding day, is to remember the reason you are getting married to the love of your life
It is a pleasure and a joy to be able to spend the rest of your life with your partner. Any nerves you may have will go if you focus on the positives.
