Ok, so Saturday is the big day for me. Any suggestions of things that I need to make sure and not forget or anything that you wish you’d had on your big day? I think I’ve made too many lists now to even be able to think straight!

omg i’m with you. i’m anxious to see what people say. I will probably forget one major item, like my shoes the day of my wedding, LOL
I’ve been keeping things in two rooms. Food/rehearsal stuff in the entry room of my house (all the liquor, cups, Out of Town bags, water bottles, etc) and all the privy stuff (BM gifts, FI’s gift, veil, flowers, etc) in one of our guest rooms.
How people do a DIY wedding in an apartment is beyond me. I have wedding stuff oozing out of my house and garage.
I"m making lists and pawning them off onto people. I told my Fiance that i planned it, now he can ensure the correct people execute it. My DOC and helper get copies of the lists, too. I’m going to try to be chill!

Make sure you spend time with your husband!
We were together with our guests all day but we didn’t take any time to ourselves until everything was over. I’d love to have taken 20 minutes together, without anyone else.
Early congrats! Enjoy your day.

Don’t forget to TAKE A DEEP BREATH because it will be wonderful!
At this point, if something goes wrong it is purely by chance so don’t sweat it because that isn’t what matters!
"The remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude." – Charles Swindoll
Early congrats too!

Don’t sweat the small stuff! Things will go wrong and the day will go faster than you will have ever imagined! Don’t worry about what will go wrong, just brush it off and hand it over to someone to take care of for you! Take a minute at your reception and look at all the people who are celebrating with you! Live in the moment…it is truely the best day ever!

Don’t forget to eat (breakfast — lunch —AND DINNER!)
Remember to bring:
safety pins, nail polish to touch up, chalk (to cover dirt on bottom of dress if it gets bad in pics), all jewelry and accessories
remember to bring your hair piece AND veil to your hair appointment (I forgot my veil – duh!)
Carve out 10-20 minutes alone with your husband right after you get married – it’s a magical moment!
Smile – through your whole day! Your joy will shine through in your pictures, I promise!
