Okay, IN THEORY, you can plan things in such a way that you aren’t frantic right before the wedding. I had planned everything perfectly, so that I could float like a serene wedding angel through my day (also a Sunday bride). Saturday I had known would be very busy, and it was, although it went more or less according to plan. Sunday was my issue. I wanted Sunday to not be hectic. 

I could not, however, plan for other people. Darling Husband ran late. My Maid/Matron of Honor ran late. Things I needed to do, that were dependent on them doing what they needed to do at certain times, therefore ran late. So instead of being dressed and ready and relaxed when the photographer arrived, I was simultaneously curling my hair and putting on make-up and helping Maid/Matron of Honor untangle her necklace and helping Darling Husband find his cufflinks when the photographer arrived.

So, yes, you can plan the chaos out, but just know that you can’t control everything, and chaos will always creep back in.

It’s a great idea. We’ve scheduled doing flowers for 5 hours the day before- I would MUCH rather be at the spa at that time! 🙂

I would just schedule mani/pedis and skip the massage. You can do a couples massage on the honeymoon instead, and that gives you a little more time, just in case.
