Top 5 Things To Do 1 Week Before Your Wedding Day!

  1. Make a list….out of all the lists you must have made throughout the planning stages of your wedding this will be your last and most vital one! Your list should include all of the final touches you have spent so much time and thought over in the recent months. From table scatters to wedding favours, you should take note of all of the things you want to pass on to your wedding coordinator! That’s the hard bit done! Once you have passed all of your items over, you need to hand the list to your maid of honour – or delegated person – to collect all of those things for you after your big day! Don’t get everybody involved or you’ll be tracking things down for weeks, if not months later!
  2. Pack the right things for your morning after!……You want to wake up feeling fresh and revitalised for your very first day as a married couple, don’t you? A sugary drink and some paracetemol definitely would not go a miss…..and if you don’t need them your bridesmaids and groomsmen might!
  3. Take care of your dress!……One of the wisest things to do is book your dress into the dry cleaners for the day after, assuming maybe…but wise? YES!
  4. Book your transport……Whether you are going straight off on your honeymoon or to the warmth of your own home you need to know you have a safe ride! Organize with your friends and family or book a taxi in advance, just to make sure you have a smooth and easy first day of married life!
  5. Have your thank you cards ready! Not for your gifts but for the people who have kept you cool, calm and sane! Whether it be for the florist who has spoken to you several times over to make sure you have the perfect bridal bouquet, or your makeup artist who has ade you feel extra special on the day. Think about all of the people who have made your day possible, they will appreciate it!
