Congrats! so exciting. what’s a soon-to-be-a-Mrs outfit? Lol!

a few tips, since my wedding was four weeks ago:

be as clear as you can (like emailing pdf copies of itinieraries and lists) with your key players, bridal parties, etc, so they know exactly WHAT you need them to do, WHERE, and WHEN. you want to be able to relax on the big day, not be coordinating.

if you are planning on giving out any gifts on the day-of, have them handed out by someone else, and labled well. We forgot and missed some gift giving opps, because we were so overwhelmed by the night after the ceremony.

EAT! haha… no seriously, don’t skip breakfast or lunch. Ask your ‘maids to keep feeding and watering you.

Have your Mom or MOH or a friend make a day-of emergency kit. We had a sewing emergency, and it was so great that my Mom had everything.

Make a list for your photog of must-have photos. Get lots of posed portraits, but ask for lots of candids too. I’m kinda sad a didn’t get a nice posed one of just me and my Mom, but there was a lot of us in candid moments, and us dancing together, so that’s fun. I also wish we’d got a big group photo, of us and all our guests. No big deal, but if you are paying a pro, get what you want!

Breathe, and good luck!

also, you might get more responses and support from other September brides on the Month twins Sept board. ๐Ÿ™‚

@soon2bmrsP2012:  OMG, yes do a day-of timeline! and plan for everything to take longer than you expect… really. Everyone, yourself most of all, will appreciate not feeling rushed and stressed!
