The time before the wedding ceremony should be relaxing, fun, and exciting. However, too often it’s stressful and a little crazy. This can happen because of small details being forgotten, or simply because of the high anxiety of the day. Here are some important last minute wedding details to keep in mind that will help your wedding day be even better!
Be Comfortable Getting Ready
And have fun! Slip on a comfy bridal robe, wear slippers or flats, sip a mimosa, pop on your favorite playlist, and relax. Don’t feel the need to wear your heels until an hour or so before the ceremony begins. Take the getting ready and prep time to feel pampered and enjoy yourself with your bridesmaids. Make sure to bring all the last minute wedding items you’ll need to do this (the playlist, robe, slippers, etc).
Make Sure Your Cell Is Charged
This may seem like a small detail, but on the big day, it’s the small last minute wedding details that can matter the most. You definitely don’t want to end up with a dead cell phone on your wedding day. There are too many people who will be trying to reach you, too many calls you’ll need to make, and too many photos you’ll want to snap! Make sure to bring your phone charger with you to the wedding venue and leave it charging as you get ready.
Remember To Drink Water And Eat
Many brides are so anxious that they feel like they can’t eat on their wedding day morning. However, it’s a big, important day—and everyone needs to eat, especially the bride. Have a light breakfast, and make sure lunch is arranged. The last thing you want is to get lightheaded and dizzy during your wedding vows! It’s also very important to drink plenty of water. Yes, have champagne—but have water, too! Just remember to not drink too much right before the ceremony. You know why!
Write A Letter To Your Fiancé
Take a few moments and write a love letter to your fiancé that you can give him later. Include what you’re feeling and why you love him. This will make a beautiful keepsake for future anniversaries or even on the honeymoon.
Get A “First Look” Photo With Dad
Many brides these days like to have a “first look” photo with their father, where he sees her in her wedding dress for the first time. If this is important to you, make sure to let the photographer know so that it doesn’t get forgotten. It’s an easy thing to lose track of in all the excitement, but a moment worth having forever.
Above all, remember to enjoy yourself on your wedding day morning! Hopefully you’ll find these last minute wedding details to be helpful.
