If you’re well prepared, your wedding day will go off without a hitch! So plan early and thoroughly.

Be prepared! This is so very important. Having everything in order before your wedding day is a must. The last thing you want is to wake up with tasks still to do. Therefore, make sure your wedding gown is ready to go. Confirm all hair and makeup appointments if you have decided to go this route. Gather all your bridal accessories in one place as to not forget something. Another great idea is to make a quick checklist and go over it the night before the wedding.

Don’t forget to eat! Many brides get so nervous they forget to eat or simply feel like they can’t. You MUST eat, ladies. Food is fuel for the body and you want to have the energy you need for the day. Even if you feel like your tummy is in knots, try and get something on it. It is sure to help more than you can imagine.

Take time to breathe! If you feel things getting hectic, remember the first tip (that you are prepared) and breathe. It is a good idea to take a few minutes to yourself before the wedding to clear and ease your mind. Some brides do a quick meditation while others perform a breathing exercise that helps calm the nerves. Either one you choose, make sure you are in a secluded area where there is minimal noise and nobody to distract you from “you time.”

Lean on family and friends! Don’t be afraid to ask family and friends for help on your wedding day. That is what they are there for—whether it is to run a quick errand, get food, or just talk. Take advantage of the love they have for you and it will make the day a great one.

Enjoy your moments! This cannot be emphasized enough! While the wedding day is going in, take the time to really look around and take it all in. It is a beautiful day, rain or shine, because you are celebrating a love and a new life. This day can’t be repeated so enjoy every second of it. The little details will stay with you for a lifetime.
