Take a final look at the wedding venue and ensure everything’s in place for the wedding. Make sure the setup is the way you wanted it to be, the arrangements are in place, and there is no issue with the seating arrangement. Also, reconfirm the timing of the event with the manager so that there’s no last minute confusion.

 

Meet the vendors to confirm details

Coordinating with the vendors at the last minute can create a lot of confusion and havoc. So, it is always better to fix a meeting with the vendors like your photographer, makeup artist and DJ to make sure everything’s in place. In case, some mishaps occur, have a plan B set so that it doesn’t throw your wedding completely off track.

You really thought of smoothly sailing through the wedding without giving much thought to the wedding outfit? Well, you need to have your wedding outfit in place with all the fittings and alteration done. Last minute isn’t the right minute, especially not when it’s your wedding day that’s coming up.

 

Cross-check for accommodation

Since you’ll be having a lot of guests attending your wedding, make sure you have rooms booked for the guests and everything is according to their convenience. The last thing you want at your wedding is an unhappy, grumbling guest. So, to avoid that, check with the hotel and travel service about your bookings.

 

Organise your payments that need to go out

Your wedding day is going to be crazy, and you will be all over the place. So, see to it that the payments you need to make to the vendors are in place. Taking care of the payments beforehand takes one major thing off your mind.

 

We never forget the food!

What is any wedding without food? You never, ever goof up when it comes to food at your wedding. A lot of guests form an opinion about your wedding based on the food served to them (believe it or not). Also, make sure you eat carefully but eat well before your wedding day. Don’t starve yourself, don’t skip meals and avoid meals that make you fall sick. Remember the scene from the movie Bridesmaids, where the bride has a bad stomach pain post a bad lunch (trust us; you don’t want to be her on your wedding day).

 

Stash your little bag with things you need

Amidst the bigger things, you may forget the smaller things, which are crucial to make your whole look complete. Your small bag should consist of safety pins, pain killers, needle and threads, hair pins, tissues, etc. You never know what comes in handy on a wedding day.

 

Make appointments

Make prior appointments at the salon for any beauty treatment you want. Also, sit with them and zero out on the look you want on your wedding day. While deciding that, keep in mind the outfit you’ll be wearing so that there’s no goof up on that front.

 

Sleep

The most important thing is getting your beauty sleep before your wedding day. Getting those 7-8 hours of sleep is mandatory as you don’t want to have those puffy eyes on your big day.
