What last minute running around needed to be done? We’re having our rehearsal dinner on the Thursday night before our wedding and I’d like to spend Friday having a mobile spa come to the house for my girls so we can have mani/pedis and relax, but I’m worried there may be a bunch of running around to do that I haven’t thought of. What did you do the day before your wedding?

Omgosh, that sounds divine! I planned to relax the entire week before the wedding—I thought I was way ahead of the game! But somehow, I was still running around the last two days before the wedding. This stuff all could’ve been done earlier: We were delivering our stuff to the venue, finishing up favors and place cards, visiting with out of town relatives, picking up my dress, emailing vendors, doing my nails, putting the finishing touches on bridal party gifts, and writing cards to our bridal party, parents, flowergirl, and ringbearer. Sigh, there was a lot more, but again, all of this could be done ahead of time, so you could enjoy your spa day!

I was SO busy! We lost my grandma so I spent several hours calling hotels, plus picking up my dress and finishing things, delivering Out of Town bags to all the places people were staying getting nails done, delivering things to the caterers getting all the food and suipplies for the Rehearsal Dinner. Also making sure the SCAFFOLDING was removed from my venue! I feel like there was a lot more, at one point I thought my phone was going to ring itself to death and I was just daisy chaining calls, one interupting the next! I had some awesome help though and without my Maid/Matron of Honor (found grandma) and our officiant (forced me to eat) I might have passed out or freaked out!

I was pretty relaxed by then. On Friday, I got my mani/pedi, checked into our hotel suite, picked up my dress from the cleaners, and got ready for the rehearsal and dinner. It was actually quite enjoyable and stress-free for me. I had aready put together everything for my DOC to handle (ie final vendor payments, some decorations to put up, the escort cards, cake topper, guestbook, etc). Once I handed over that box to her, I felt a lot of relief, lol!

I have a friend acting as DOC for me, so I’m hoping to schluff a lot of stuff off to her. I’ve booked a new mani/pedi bar just down the street for an afternoon for the girls so we can call relax. Hopefully everything goes according to plan and we can relax. Thanks for the tips ladies, now I can start making a mental list of things to get ready for her, etc.
