Wedding To Do List – And Ending with the Extras
When planning a wedding so much has to happen for it to be a success. At times that wedding to do list of basic tasks will seem endless. And that is the very reason when in the thick of things a wedding to do list is so imperative. But many a bride tend to leave out some of the things that mean the most to them. Those things that while important, come later and can result in being forgotten. There are some more unusual duties that every bride should mark off her wedding to do list before that special moment. And they include:
Decide on Hair and Make-up. And be sure to have a Plan B. Because you just never know.
Buy Comfortable Shoes. Just in case your dogs are barking and you still want to dance the night away.
Have a Taste Test. Of all the food and beverages you will be serving on your special night.
Take time to Connect with your Bridesmaids as a Group. That way no one feels left out and everyone feels like part of your special day.
Get the Wedding License. Just an extra reminder. With so much to get done you want to be sure this doesn’t fall through the cracks.
Spend some time with your Fiancee. Wedding planning can be an all-encompassing experience. So take the time to reconnect away from any wedding drama.
Discuss Wedding Plans and Logistics with the Parents. To ensure everyone is on the same page, feels comfortable and knows what they’re doing.
Take Dance Lessons. If you’re like me and are a bit challenged when it comes to bopping the night away. Then schedule a dance lesson or two leading up to the big day.
Take some Time for Yourself. As we all know planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort. Be sure to put yourself on the wedding to do list.
Practice the Kiss. No one wants to look awkward at that special moment. And practicing smooching is not a hard task to undertake leading up to the wedding.
