Tips For Surviving The Week Before The Wedding

When you’re managing your own wedding or using a professional wedding planner, the week before your wedding day will be a loaded one. Loaded with details and people buzzing all around – emotions running high. To make sure that you continue your way to the big day with peace, confidence and success, here are some ideas you might want to consider.

Think ahead

Consider choosing a rehearsal date two days before your wedding day, not one day before. Many brides choose to hold their rehearsal the night before the wedding to accommodate friends flying or driving in, but two days in advance will allow you time for a relaxed rehearsal dinner and then a free day before the wedding.

Pamper yourself

Free yourself from your professional obligations three days prior to your rehearsal day. Avoid traffic. Make it easier to enjoy your feelings by scheduling stress-reducing activities, such as spa-services, workouts, journal writing, long lunches with friends, shopping, yoga and leisurely walks.

Clean up the details

You’ve worked hard for months, now comes the week when the small things can really count. Try to complete your reception table assignments, write most of your final payment checks, and review the timing of your wedding day at least one week in advance. Each time your check another detail off your list, you will be one step closer to enjoying your wedding with a clear mind.

Allow a few indulgences

A relaxed and well-rested bride is a beautiful bride. Have a massage the night before your wedding. Splurge for a hotel suite so that on your wedding day, you wake up to room service and maid service. Also, try to have your beauty stylists bring the salon to you. You and your wedding party can relax and enjoy room service and laughs. These moments with your bridal party are often some of the most precious and memorable of a wedding experience.
