Keep Speeches Short
Speeches are an essential part of any wedding, but it’s important to ensure they don’t go on for too long. Keep the toast brief, no more than a few minutes per person, and have your MC prepared to make tasteful windups if necessary.
End of the reception
Before the wedding, designate someone to take home all your gifts and mementos after the reception and to close out any final vendor payments.
Change of outfit
If you’re changing out of your wedding gown before going to the hotel, you’ll need someone to take it home with them. You can delegate these responsibilities to a bridesmaid, family member, or wedding planner.
Make sure you have something to eat in the morning, before the ceremony and at the reception. A low blood sugar can make you feel faint, sick, irritable and tired. Put someone in charge of ensuring you eat regularly throughout the day and have snacks on hand.
Although drinking a lot of water can result in more trips to the bathroom, it is essential to stay hydrated. Dehydration can result in headaches, weakness and dizziness and may make you feel cranky. Be sure to consume water throughout the day, especially if you are drinking alcohol!
Don’t sweat the small stuff
Stop, breathe and enjoy your day and being with all your family and friends. If something goes wrong, you are surrounded by people who are willing to help and support you.
