It's One Week Before The Wedding, Now What?

Some brides find it hard to relax and leave all the final details to the professionals (wedding vendors). Here's a list of "TO DO's" I provide my clients one week prior to the wedding.

1 Week Before the Wedding
  • Pamper yourself with a relaxing massage, a manicure and a facial treatment.
  • The groom will want to get a haircut.
  • Give final count to the reception facility, caterer and bartending service.
  • Remind men in the wedding party to pick up their formal wear and to double check the fit.
  • Prepare your toasts of thanks to family and friends to be presented at the reception.
  • Make a schedule outlining the details of the wedding day and give a copy to each person in the wedding party at your rehearsal.
  • Pack for your honeymoon.
  • Mail "thank you" gifts to parents to arrive just after the wedding.
1 to 2 Days Before the Wedding
  • Attend the rehearsal with the minister/officiant, and wedding party.
  • Enjoy your rehearsal dinner with family and friends.
  • Set aside a quiet time to exchange gifts with your partner.
  • Take a long, soaking, relaxing, warm bath before going to bed.
  • Do your best to get to bed early the night before your wedding.
