The morning that you wake up and realize that you will be getting married in just a few short hours will be one of the most exciting, nerve-wrecking and awe-striking moments of your life. While you know that your morning will already include getting your hair and makeup done, and primping with your bridesmaids before your walk down the aisle, there are quite a few other things to consider.
Chances are, you have already made yourself aware of a few of the tasks below, but we would highly suggest writing them down so as not to forget when your mind is in a million different places on the morning of your wedding.
Eat Breakfast – You may think you’re too busy to sit down and enjoy a nice breakfast on the day of your wedding, but you should really think again – especially if you and your bridesmaids plan to enjoy a little bit of champagne. Once you walk down that aisle, you really won’t have any time to yourself. Take the time in the morning and have a healthy yet hearty breakfast that will give you the energy to make it through the day.
Double Check Your Bridal Bag – This is the easiest thing to forget, but probably one of the most important. Before leaving to get your hair and makeup done, remember to check your bag one last time and make sure that you have the essentials: shoes, accessories, perfume, blotting pads, etc.
Steal a Moment for Yourself – Traditionally, the bride and groom will have a gift or a letter sent to the other on the morning of the wedding. Take some time away from the chaos and the rest of the bridal party to open this up privately. This will be the moment that you remember why you’ve put yourself through all of the craziness and all the pre-wedding jitters will disappear.
Thank Your Parents – Our parents take a lot of the heat from our misplaced anger and frustrations and we’re sure that it has been on full blast during the wedding planning process. This day is big for you – but remember that it’s big for them, too. It’s the day that their little girl gets married, so don’t give them such a hard time. Instead, thank them for everything they’ve done to get you to this moment. They deserve it and you have no idea how much they’ll appreciate it.
Breathe – No really, breathe. Take a big breath and really process the fact that today is the day that you’ve been waiting for your entire life. Shake out the nerves and just jump around and scream and enjoy the moment because it’s here and you’re finally about to marry the love of your life!
Now take this list, write it down and tape it to the garment bag that contains your wedding dress so that you won’t forget it. If you need any more tips, check out an extended list on SheFinds.com!
