I feel like I have my check list to get done and make sure everything is packed.
What did you ladies do the week before the wedding?
Stress, and stress, and stress! Lol. No seriously, yes I did stress, hee hee, but I tied up a lot of loose ends such as making sure all my bridesmaids dresses were completed and checked in with the vendors because I am a control freak.
Hmm. I worked M-W that week, and took Th/Fri off for wedding stuff!
Basically I made sure everything was packed in boxes and labeled on where to go at the venue, and how to set it up! Other than that, my DOC took care of contacting all vendors, so I just did a few of my own things. Got waxed, mani pedi, etc :D
I feel relativly calm except for the groomsmen, I read all these things about girls being stressed and I don't feel it. Maybe it's cause I'm OCD and had things packed for the last 3 months lol.
The only reason I was stressed is because two of my vendors bailed out on me at the last minute. Wedding coordinator and caterer and my bridesmaids were a nightmare on elm street. Lol. The day of I forgot all that had transpired and was focused on my handsome groom waiting for me at the end of the aisle. ; )
I'm taking the week of before the wedding as we have alot of family coming from interstate and wish to spend some time with them as we head off on our honeymoon the day after the wedding. I plan to relax and tie up the lose ends and get my hair done, manicure and all the girly stuff.
I worked most of that week, I think I had Thursday and Friday off. I remember I got our puppy groomed since he was the ringbearer, got a mani/pedi myself, made sure everything was packed to go to the reception/ceremony sites and basically just double-checked everything with the BP and vendors.
- Don't forget to pick up your marriage license
- Make sure any music/readings you need to have are where they should be
- pack a bag for yourself with any toiletries/emergency items you might need and gather all items for your outfit
Those are a few of the major things I can think of! And don't worry too much, it will all work out and be fine! The best thing you can do is try to keep calm and get some good night's sleep so you will look fabulous on the big day!!
I worked! Lol, But also making sure I had everything done that need to be done! and tried my hardest not to stress about anything ;)
