30 Days Before the Wedding

You're so close! A month before the wedding is when everything seems to kick into high gear and stress levels reach a maximum. There is a lot to do and there seems like not a lot of time to do it. Here's a quick reminder of things you should (and should not) do 30 days before you say I Do.

DO Write Your Vows

If you haven't done this already, now is the time. Don't wait until the last minute. These should be heartfelt and special and not rushed or written after a few glasses of bubbly. If possible, submit your vows to your JP before for approval. You can keep them a surprise from your future spouse, but your JP can make sure no one is running long or saying anything inappropriate.

DON'T Go Through Drastic Beauty Changes

You should drink a lot of water and maintain your normal beauty routine, but any drastic changes the month before can lead to some unwanted consequences. These photos will be with you for a lifetime so if you haven't ombre'd your tresses before, hold off for the honeymoon. Stay clear of do-it-yourself tanning and last minute facials and waxing. Waxing can lead to some terrible rashes and facials can often cause breakouts. Maintain your routine and you'll be your glowing self on your wedding day.

DO Finalize Your Timeline

Unless you have a wedding planner, you are the common thread throughout your vendors. You need to communicate with them when and where they need to be. Finalize your timeline and send it to all your vendors to confirm that they can be where you need them to be when you need them to be there. Having been both a vendor and a bride, I can't say how nice it is to have this document. If you don't hear from your vendors, give them a call to confirm. You don't need to be concerned with their whereabouts on the day of your wedding. 

DON'T Do it Alone

I know you want to make sure everyone has fun at your wedding, but it's ok to ask for help! I am 100% guilty of trying to do it all on my own, but I forget that some people want to help out. Designate simple tasks like bathroom baskets or checking the reception tables to responsible parties to keep things off your to-do list. The earlier you delegate the less stress you will feel. Promise. 

DO Enjoy!

Generally within a month or two of your wedding is when all the festivities truly begin. You will be showered with love from your friends and family and you should relax and enjoy and absorb all that happiness. This is a special time in your life and if you spend it stressing about every little detail, you won't enjoy all the love around you.
