With so much to worry about on your wedding day, many couples forget about some small, but important, and frequently forgotten things.
Pick someone you trust and ask them to answer any phone calls and texts you get on the day of your wedding. You’ll be way too busy to answer phone calls, and it is easiest for just one person to relay any important information to you and handle phone calls and texts from family and friends.
Test Hair & Makeup
Something that is extremely important but often forgotten is to test your makeup before the actual wedding. It’s important to know exactly how you’re going to look on your big day. The last thing you want is a wedding day panic because your makeup didn’t turn out how you thought it would.
Try on Your Dress Before the Wedding
On average, brides purchase their dress 8 months before the wedding. 8 months is a lot of time for things to change. Trying on your dress several times, periodically in that time span and definitely, the day before will ensure that your dress still fits comfortably. During alteration appointments, walk, sit, and dance in your dress to make sure it’s comfortable.
Break in your Heels
It’s important to break in your heels before the wedding, especially if you don’t often wear heels. Try wearing them around your house for as long as your feet can stand in the weeks leading up to the wedding.
Bring an Extra Pair of Shoes
Obviously, you’ll have your wedding heels, but you’re not going to want to wear those all day so it’s a good idea to bring a comfortable pair of shoes to wear while you’re getting ready and for after the ceremony.
Make Sure the Photographer Knows What Photos You Want
A specific list of photo moments that you want your photographer to capture is a good idea. Another thing to consider adding to that list is specific groups of people you want pictures with, just in case you forget. It’s also a good idea to have one or two family members on hand who can help gather any family that you want to get photos with.
Have Your Ring Cleaned
Believe us, everyone is going to want to see your ring. Having it professionally cleaned is essential. And most every jeweler will clean it free of charge.
Make a Wedding Checklist
Last but not least, you’ll want a checklist of things you don’t want to forget.
Some things on the list may include:
Wedding Rings, Vows, Chapstick/Lipstick, Jewelry, Deodorant, Lint Rollers, Veil, Change of Shoes, Bridal Emergency Supply Kit, Marriage License, Hangers (for cute dress photos).
