Bride Guide #53 is 9 tips on all the final little details that you need to remember by Layton City Utah Wedding Photographer Lauren Kay Photography.
1. Check your details.
Make sure your dress is clean and steamed and completely ready to go for tomorrow. If it
needs another touch-up or steaming, do it before the big day. You’ll want your ring sparkly
and clean. Make sure your nails aren’t chipping or growing out. It’s always a great idea to
get them done only a day or two before the wedding. Make sure you have everything you
need and it’s ready to go. If you need someone to touch up your nails click here: https://www.instagram.com/camriescreations, or click here for more: https://laurenkayphoto.com/vendors
Choose someone to be your coordinator for tomorrow, if you haven’t already. Fill them in
with every single detail. You should not be the only one that knows the details. Choose
someone you trust and let them be in charge of making sure the day runs smoothly.
Try to drink a lot of water all day. It flushes out your skin and will help you feel energized
tomorrow. Also eat a healthy dinner (don’t try anything new) and take a few minutes to
exercise. Something calming like yoga is perfect. These will all help you feel energized and
ready for your big day.
If you haven’t already, make sure your wedding night and honeymoon bags are packed and
all ready to go. See the Honeymoon and Wedding Night sections for ideas.
Gather all the details you want photographed so that you know where they are and you
won’t have to stress about finding them the morning of. Announcements, perfume, jewelry,
shoes, your dress on a special hangar, and your veil or hairpiece are all details you can
gather the night before. Then tomorrow we’ll grab your ring and the bouquet. Choose
whatever details you want photographed.
This is a great time to take a minute and write your groom a note for him to read tomorrow
morning, if you haven’t already. Think about why you are so excited to spend the rest of
your life with him, why you chose him, and why you love him, then let him know!
Set at least one alarm for tomorrow, maybe even a few. Then have another person, like a
parent or friend, in charge of making sure you’re awake by a certain time. This way you
don’t have to wake up every hour wondering if you’ve slept through your wedding.
Go to bed on time. This one is so important. Even if you are up all night and can’t sleep
because you are so excited and nervous, it’s important to rest. Do what you need to do to
get a good night’s sleep. Take a nap the day before if you feel like that would be helpful. And
put your phone away and on silent.
Take a step back. Put all the DIY projects away. Let other people finish them or call it good.
You did it. You are here. You’ve done all you can. You are ready. Take a deep breath. Let go
of what you can’t control and get ready to love and embrace whatever tomorrow brings.
