You’ve crossed off one thing after another on your wedding to-do lists, but now as the day approaches in less than 24 hours, here are five things to remember to do before you climb into your wedding dress and let out a confident “I Do” to your very own prince charming.
1. Eat a healthy meal
Though the greasy pizza and the bag of cool ranch Doritos might be screaming your name, stick to the fresh fruit and the whole grains. They won’t have you waking up with a food hangover like a Big Mac and a side of fries will on your wedding day.
2. Pack a bag or clutch of personal items.
Put together your reception clutch and your post-reception bag and hand it off to your wedding point person, who can help make sure it’s waiting for you in the bridal suite or in your hotel room. Toss a bunch of must-have items into a small tote bag in case anyone needs them. Grab a handful of Band-Aids, safety pins, packets of Advil, and of course hair ties.
3. Get a good night’s sleep
Or at least try to tuck yourself underneath those covers at a decent hour.
4. Write a love note to your groom
Something short and sweet. Reminding the guy who will be waiting
for you in a freshly-cleaned tux that he is the love of your entire life.
5. Say a big “thank you”
Before the wedding-day chaos kicks in, be sure to thank people in advance for sticking by your side through this adventure. Give an extra hug to your bridesmaids and pop a kiss on the cheeks of your family members. ■
