Wedding planning is very fun yet exhausting, and when you're approaching the finish line, you will feel overwhelmed and helpless. Yet you're constantly wondering if there is anything else you should be doing. Is there really anything you can do in only three days before the wedding bell rings?
1. Getting Mani and Pedi
Get your nails polished and your hands and feet massaged the day before the wedding. It might just be the stress-relieving treat you deserve. Make an appointment for a manicure and pedicure session the day before the wedding. You might want to consider getting a stress-relieving massage, too.
2. Make the Final Payments
Don't let the bills haunt you on your big day. It's a good time to make all the final payments so you don't have to try to think about any outstanding bills when you're supposed to be focusing on the joys of getting married.
3. Pack the wedding survival kit
Things might get a little crazy on your big day. This survival kit will help you stay sane. The kit may contain water, deodorant, mints, aspirin, lip-gloss or lipstick, dental floss, sewing kit, first aid kit, touch-up powder, bobby pins, mirror, baby wipes, safety pins, scissors, tissues, comb, etc. The list sure can be customized to your needs. Find out what you might need in terms of emergency situation. Maybe, a bar of chocolate to reduce the stress? Put them all in a bag and make sure your maid of honor knows where to get it in case of emergency.
4. Meet all the vendors to fine-tune all the details
These last 3-days of wedding preparation can be the last chance to fine tune all the details with the vendors. Set the date to have a meeting with them and make sure they're at least 95% ready for your big day. Remember not to be annoying and make last minute changes to your plans. Just stick to all the choices you made and make sure that they implement the details of your wedding day in perfection.
5. Get a head-start on honeymoon packing
Got the first flight to your honeymoon destination right after the wedding reception? That means you should start packing now. You will most probably be tired after the reception and the last thing you want to do is to pack your suitcases at 2 AM.
6. Pack your accessories in a bag
No, you don't want to yell at everyone asking for your jewelry all day long. It's always a good idea to have your accessories in one place. This includes your clutch, jewelry, shoes, undergarments and hair accessories. Put the bag beside your wedding dress to make it easily accessible to you.
7. Have a date with your girlfriends
You've been dealing with quite a hard period of time preparing your wedding day. You need a break from being the bridezilla and to just be you. So call up your dearest friends and have a good time. Book a day spa for you and your girlfriends, or have a nice brunch at your favorite bistro. It's such a pleasant way to relax and re-bonding with your girlfriends.
8. Stay away from drama
To have an inner peace on your wedding day, you need to stay positive. Sometimes things are not the way you want them to be, but you don't need to sweat the small stuff. Hand-over the wedding things to your maid of honor, including your mobile phone. Ask her to filter all the information and let her face the drama, not you.
