WEDDING PLANNING 101: Tips when planing your wedding day
Updated: Jun 4
Planning a wedding is a significant undertaking that requires a lot of time, effort, and attention to detail. Once the planning is done, it's easy to think that everything is taken care of, and you can relax until the big day arrives. However, there are a few essential things that brides need to know before they stop planning their wedding day. In this blog post, we'll discuss these things to help ensure that your wedding day goes smoothly and stress-free.
1. Confirm and re-confirm all vendor contracts and details.
It's essential to confirm all vendor contracts and details before the wedding day. This includes the venue, caterer, photographer, florist, wedding alterations, wedding favours, and any other vendors involved in your wedding. Confirm the date, time, and location of each service, and make sure everyone is on the same page. Follow up with each vendor a few days before the wedding day to confirm that everything is still in order.
2. Assign responsibilities to your bridal party and family members.
This can help ensure that everything runs smoothly on your wedding day. Assign someone to be in charge of the timeline, someone to handle any emergencies, and someone to be in charge of collecting gifts and cards. Make sure everyone knows their responsibilities and that they are prepared to handle any situation that may arise.
3. Create an emergency kit
Creating an emergency kit can be a lifesaver on your wedding day. Include items like extra bobby pins, a sewing kit, stain remover, and band-aids. You never know when you'll need these items, so it's best to be prepared.
4. Practice your hair and makeup
Practicing your hair and makeup before the wedding day can help ensure that you look and feel your best. Schedule a trial run with your hair and makeup artist, and make sure you're happy with the final look. Take pictures to reference on the wedding day, so your stylist can recreate the look.
4. Take care of yourself
It's essential to take care of yourself in the days leading up to your wedding day. Get plenty of rest, eat healthy, and stay hydrated. Don't try any new skincare or beauty treatments in the days leading up to your wedding, as they could cause an adverse reaction.
Planning a wedding is a lot of work, but it's worth it to create the perfect day. Before you stop planning, make sure you've confirmed all vendor contracts and details, assigned responsibilities to your bridal party and family members, created an emergency kit, practiced your hair and makeup, and taken care of yourself. By following these tips, you can help ensure that your wedding day is stress-free and runs smoothly.
