Preparing for Your Wedding Day


Preparing for your wedding day is one of the most exciting times of your life, but also one of the most stressful.  There are about a million different things on your mind leading up to the big day; so many things to consider and needing a backup plan for each.  Below is a short list of things to remember when preparing for your wedding day.

Set time for a spa treatment

Planning a great wedding is stressful and can lead to awful skin breakouts if you’re not careful.  Make sure to set time for a relaxing facial treatment and massage.  For my local gals, I highly recommend Massage Envy for a facial in Richmond VA.  Booking a treatment should be the first thing on your list of things to do.  You don’t want to risk the chance of having some embarrassing photos on your wedding day.

Check in with your photographer

One last check in with your photographer is an absolute MUST before your wedding day.  It’s important to make sure you’re on the same page when it comes to which shots are most important to you.  There are key moments during the ceremony and the reception that you don’t want to miss.  Make sure you have planned with your photographer which key moments are going to be the ones you cherish year after year.

Bridal party timeline

Make sure you plan your timeline of the event with your bridal party.  You want to make sure that there is no miscommunication of the timing of events.  You’ll want to be sure everyone knows where they need to be and at what time they need to be there.

Break in your heels

Don’t wait until  your wedding day to slip on your heels or you’ll be in for a painful surprise.  You’ll want to break them in ahead of time to make sure you’re comfortable for the entire event.  One of the best ways to do this is by doubling up on socks and walking around in them for a while.  The extra cushion will keep your feet comfortable while helping to expand the shoe’s material.

Pack for your honeymoon

Absolutely remember to pack for your getaway trip.  You won’t want to waste any time getting out of town and relaxing after a year of constant stress.

These are just a few friendly reminders to help your wedding go as smoothly as possible.  I hope these tips help you when preparing for your big day!
