Ok, so you're a week away from saying "I do”—Exciting stuff we know right. But with a week to go, there are some small but important things that have to be checked off your list to make this week as smooth as possible. The last thing you want is to be at the altar ready for your groom to break the glass and then realize that there's no glass, right?
Here is a full-proof way to make sure all t’s are crossed and I’s dotted. (Oh and don’t forget the glass!), Below you'll find our week of wedding checklist that will help you keep track of all those little details. In addition to marking off all those items, don't forget to relax and have fun. Yes, it may feel stressful at times, but this is supposed to be a happy and exciting time of your life.
What should I eat the week of my wedding?
The short answer is whatever the heck you want. But another option is Eating healthy. But don’t starve yourself thinking it will help you look even better in your dress. Please avoid skipping meals or stress eating, as it won't do you any favors. Eat regular, balanced meals with fruits, veggies, and lean protein, such as fish, along with healthy fats like avocados.
Week of Wedding Checklist
1. Designate Your Various Point People
Look it's your week and coming up on your big day. You don't want your caterer calling you while you're getting your makeup done on the day of. To avoid that, designate point people for every situation, like Ceremony items: If you're having any assign a person to make sure they are at the altar ahead of time.
Reception questions: Introduce your reception site manager to your consultant or maid of honor for questions or problems during the reception.
Miscellaneous questions: Provide all wedding professionals with an emergency phone number to call on the day of the wedding—usually your planner, maid of honor, or bridesmaid.
2. Schedule Any Beauty Appointments
This goes without saying but as busy as you will be make sure those fingers and toes are wedding and most importantly picture ready. Make any minor beauty appointments you want to be done that week. Make sure you get one or all of these: a mani-pedi, waxing, massage, and facial. This goes for your groom too—make sure his hair is trimmed and face is shaved (if that's the look he's after). Also, a couple's massage might be just what you need to relax that week as well.
3. Over-communicate With Your Vendors
To make sure everyone is on the same page call all yes ALL of your vendors and make sure they are confirmed. You absolutely do not want them calling you the day of and asking you a question, we need that day to be all about you with minimal distractions.
4. Have Your Wedding Attire Ready to Go
Make arrangements at the local cleaners to have your wedding dress steamed—and don't try it on after it's been steamed or else it'll wrinkle again. Store it in the garment bag from the bridal salon and hang it in a closet in a smoke-free and pet-free room.
5. Relax and stretch
Some yoga might be exactly what you need to relax your body and mind. I would even try it the morning of the big day, not only will you be relaxed and centered for the day. But you will feel more loose and limber and ready to cut a rug with your new Hubby.
