1. Embracing Tradition: Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

Pay homage to tradition by ensuring you have your “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.” These cherished items symbolize good luck, love, and fidelity, so don’t forget to have them ready.

2. Finalize Guest Counts

Get your final guest counts to your caterer, venue, and bartending services. This is essential for ensuring that you have enough seating, food, and drinks for all your guests. This can also be crucial when creating that seating chart.

4. Prepare an Itinerary for Guests

Create a detailed itinerary for your guests, so they know where to be and when. Include important events like the rehearsal dinner, hair and makeup appointments, photo sessions, and any post-wedding gatherings like a Sunday brunch.

5. Relax and Pamper Yourself

Take some time to unwind and pamper yourself. Schedule a nail appointment, facial, or even a soothing massage to alleviate pre-wedding jitters and ensure you look and feel your best on the big day.

6. Share Finalized Timeline

Share the finalized wedding day timeline with your venue, Maid of Honor, and the mothers. Having multiple copies on hand ensures everyone is on the same page, and any unforeseen circumstances can be handled smoothly.
