Ours was pretty crazy and full of last-minute stuff (very DIY wedding / venue).  BUT, we had scheduled a fun afternoon hike & swim on Thursday with whoever was around, and then dinner out.  We had about 25-30 people in town by then, so it was so so fun to have some mandatory fun time with loved ones.  We also had a brunch at my parents’ house Friday midday for all our extended family members – that was really special to have both sides of the families meet, cause they’re all super awesome.

Tagging in! I have 6 days off prior to the wedding, and I’m hoping that we’re done by then…I’m sure I’ll still be running around like a chicken with my head cut off!

I even want to go as far as taking a little 3 day trip or something!

We had activities planned with family and OOT guests which was all great but it was still a very FULL ON week. We didn’t feel like we had a moments rest the week before the wedding because everyone will ask you questions, will want to see you etc. On top of that there will always be last minute things to do.

I managed to have my mani and pedi done but I was planning to have a tan but didn’t get a change to, hell I didn’t event have time to wash my hair the day before the wedding as planned, but it all worked out fine in the end anyway.

My favorite (semi) non stressful moment before the wedding day was our day out at Niagara Falls with the whole family. It was great fun and something we will all remember forever. Also, our rehearsal was amazing. It just made it all real going through all the steps of the ceremony. 🙂

@vanessa7:  My mom, sister, and one of my bridesmaids went for lunch and pedicures on the Friday before the wedding.  It was relaxing and fun!  Plus, I didn’t have to fit in a pedicure on the day of the wedding.

I think we’re going to have a spa day as well! Maybe on the Friday before?

I also want to do a Bridesmaid luncheon. Maybe a tea like vanessa7 suggested!
