The Day Before Your Wedding
The months of planning for the big day will often result in the biggest stress and pressure on the very last day before the wedding, but it is also the day you need to be the most relaxed so as to be your best self the next day. Accordingly, it might be worthwhile to have a final checklist for the last day; it should include the following things:
Make sure you have called the hair and makeup artist, the dress fitters and everybody else in charge of getting the bride ready – in case you haven’t already called these people in the final week, it is time to do so; alternatively, you might already have, but need a call of reassurance to make sure everyone will be there on time. Looking for a professional hair and makeup artist for your big day you can see this page for the details.
Additionally, if you plan to employ mobile hair and makeup services and have these people prepare you not at home, but at the wedding location itself, make sure everyone is aware of the location, the time and has directions on how to get there.
Make sure you have called the photographer and the DJs – the photographer is in charge of preserving the memories of your wedding day, and you want him or her to make sure that shots of the people most important to you are included. Take a final call and make sure that they are aware of your relations and important friends, as well as any other requests you might have (providing photos of the individuals to make sure they know the people is a good idea). The DJs also need a final call to make sure that the music is what you have requested. This is especially important as nowadays, there are many covers, remixes, etc. of popular songs, so make sure to check that the songs are what you intended to have.
Prepare your payments – payments for all the professionals involved in your day will need to be ready on the day before the wedding, so make sure that you have the necessary payments ready. Also, it might be a good idea to include any tips that you wish to give to certain people – put them in small envelopes with names properly written. Additionally, you might also want to pack in some additional wads of cash to hand on the wedding day as tips to certain people who worked extra hard on the day itself.
Drop off your luggage at the hotel – if you’re going to stay at a hotel after the reception, make sure that you’ve prepared your suitcases and have them dropped off at the hotel in advance (either by yourself, or by family or friends). There is a good chance you might forget them on the day itself, after all.
The above are only the main points that you need to pay attention to – it might be a good idea to check all written objects and decorations one last time as well. But do not stay up late for any reason: you will be needing a good rest to face tomorrow!
