What NOT To Do On Your Wedding Day

You deserve to have a wedding day that’s stress-free and full of memories you’ll cherish for years to come. But as we all know, weddings can be extremely hectic and intense to plan. Making sure all of the pieces are in place for your special day might seem impossible!

Before you attempt to maximize your productivity, remember that nothing should get in the way of you celebrating your love with your partner. There’s plenty of things to do, but you mustn’t end up doing last-minute tasks that detract from your day of celebrations.

Here are six things you should avoid doing on your wedding day:

Writing Your Vows

While planning your wedding, it’s easy to postpone tasks that don’t steal the spotlight, such as writing your vows. However, writing your vows last minute doesn’t give you enough time to express your feelings and what your partner truly means to you.

Instead of waiting until the day of, schedule a time in your calendar to write your vows, preferably a few weeks before you’ll be sharing them with your loved ones.

If the thought of creating your vows leaves you overwhelmed, start with a rough draft and clean it up later! This will allow you to stay present and fully enjoy your wedding day.

Beauty Treatments

You want to look breathtaking on your wedding day, which may call for every beauty treatment in the book. Did someone say spa day?!

Though getting a wax, massage, facial, or hair treatment done right before your wedding might be tempting, you’ll want to think twice about doing this on the day itself. If something goes wrong, you don’t want to be dealing with the ramifications when you’re supposed to be present and relaxed.

Instead, plan your spa treatments a week or more before your wedding so that you can fix any potential mishaps in time.

Doing a Strenuous Workout

Feeling confident in your body is certainly something to aim for when it comes to your wedding, but try not to go overboard when working out the day of. There’s nothing worse than feeling sore and distracted during one of the most important days of your life.

We recommend maintaining your regular workout routine so your body isn’t shocked at working harder than usual. As long as you feel happy and healthy, you’ll look fantastic!

Wear a Brand New Pair of Shoes

The dress might steal the show, but most brides are excited about their entire ensemble — especially their shoes. Unfortunately, new shoes, heels in particular, aren’t always the comfiest option. You don’t want to be stuck walking down the altar and thinking to yourself how badly your feet are hurting. No way! This should be a loving moment that you can cherish forever.

If you want to wear new shoes, buy them ahead of time and be sure to break them in. Your feet will thank you, and you won’t be left sore before it’s time to party on the dancefloor.

Neglect Your Food and Drink Intake

Weddings can be busy and chaotic. However, don’t get so caught up in the details that you forget to eat and drink. There’s nothing like a fainting accident to derail the day. So, practice self-care and nourish your body with breakfast, snacks, and water throughout the day.

You’ll feel refreshed, energetic, and ready to savor every moment.

Attempt To Control Every Element

You have a vision, and you want it to be executed perfectly for your wedding. It can be hard to let go and trust that other people can make your plans happen, but trying to control everything will leave you flustered, exhausted, and unable to enjoy your event.

Put your trust in your vendors, wedding planners, family, and friends. You will be amazed at how smoothly your event will go when you relinquish some control.

No one ever said that weddings were easy or stress-free, but you can have the best experience when you plan ahead of schedule. Schedule a consultation call today, and let us handle the prep!
