No matter how big or small your wedding is going to be, there is always so much to do in those last few days and weeks before it happens. Last minute errands, visiting the Charleston hair salon, unforeseen changes, and worries are enough to send many brides into a whirlwind. Even though it is almost impossible to stay completely stress-free, there are a few things you can do to remain calm and handle anything that comes your way.
Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find the big items like your venue, Charleston hair salon, and dress. After you have the bigger things planned, don’t forget about the details. Make a list and tackle the items one at a time. Whether it be finding invitations you love, getting your hair accessories or deciding on flowers, if it’s on the list, know you will get to it. Try to prioritize what needs to be done first. Don’t wait until the last minute to decide what your hair and makeup will look like!
Share the Work
A wedding is a family affair. Anything you can hand off to helpful family members and friends, do it. Have some friends over and have them help you stuff envelopes or make favors. Give someone the job of making a list of your gifts, and who you need to write thank you notes for. Get opinions from friends and family about Charleston hair salons, caterers, and photographers. Make sure your partner is also helping. Get their opinion and get them involved in a day that is for both of you.
Take Care of Yourself
In all of the hustle and bustle of wedding preparation, it’s easy to push certain things to the back burner. Making sure you get enough sleep, exercising and eating right will help you deal with any stress better than you would if you were tired and grumpy. Not only will this help you look your best, but you will feel like the best version of yourself too.
Get your Hair and Makeup Trial Run and Wedding Day Appointment Set
Don’t assume your favorite stylist at the Charleston hair salon is free. Go ahead and set your wedding day appointment early and make sure you get a trial run as well. It’s amazing how much better you will feel knowing you are going to love how your hair and makeup looks for your big day. A trial run will let you know if you need to work out anything before the real thing and your stylist will know exactly what you want for your wedding day appointment.
Remember Why You are Getting Married
If you start to feel really panicked, remember why you are getting married in the first place. Even if something crazy happens outside of your control, it will ultimately be a great story for years to come. No wedding is perfect so remember to enjoy the days leading up to your special day. Make time to spend time with friends and family and of course the one you love.
