Make sure your guests are well informed in advance (clear info on time, location, how to get there and dress code)
Details about the wedding day, location, beginning hour, dress code etc., are usually found in the wedding invitations.
However, it is wise, when you receive confirmation from a guest on attending to the event, to remind him again with the wedding details (especially if it`s a dress code). Some people might not paid full attention to the details when reading an invitation or it may slipped their mind.
Also, for an accurate number of guests you can phone people for confirmation within a month before the wedding. Some people might come to the wedding but had forgotten to confirm or vice versa.
Make sure your band has all the necessary equipment and arrives beforehand to test the acoustic, electrical sockets etc
You might be surprised that we suggest you think about this but sometimes bands are not as professional as you expect. Better safe than sorry, so do take the time and check this aspect, it might save you from weird or embarassing situations in front of friends and family.
Check the weather conditions and make necessary adjustments to your setup
Weather can create problems on your special day if your wedding is outdoors. It is best that you vendor has a tent or a terrace if it is going to rain.
Contact your venue manager and visit the venue 3 weeks before and a couple of days before to check all arrangements are in place
It is best that you see the venue in person so that the image in your mind fits the reality of the location. If you don`t have time you can always send a person you trust or as a last option ask for recent photos of the venue ( and dimensions of the room and tables if you are booking online).
Make sure your wedding dress looks great on you, it fits, it’s clean, ironed etc – a couple of days before the event
You must always check your dress a couple of days before the wedding. A common problem, usually because of the stress, is that some brides might lose or put on a few pounds, so the dress might not be a perfect fit.
Check arrangements for coiffure & make-up
Usually beauty salons sign special contracts with the future bride and there is a trial session for make-up and coiffure, so that everyone can be satisfied with the final result. Problems in this area are rare and if you are in the hands of professionals you have nothing to worry.
Take a spa treatment before to chill and get rid of the stress!
After everything you have done and all the stress you have been thru preparing the big day, it`s time to take care of you.
Plan to take some time for yourself at least in the night before the wedding. You must be relaxed physically, mentally and emotionally. For having a relaxing and good time before the wedding you can go to the spa, take a workout, have some time off with friends if you need someone to calm you or you are not a lonely person, read a book and have plenty of sleep (go early to bed). You will want to enjoy your wedding day and not be exhausted.
