1 Month Out From Your Wedding
You are in the Final Stages!
Call up to confirm honeymoon reservations in paradise. Contact your caterer and give them a final count of attendees and send directions to the your mode of transportation ahead of time. Wedding destinations can be tricky and you want to make sure that everyone can arrive without difficulty, (also one less thing to worry about!) Get final payments to vendors and delegate those wedding day duties to the maid of honor and bridesmaids. Take a deep breath, we are almost there! A self-care day is in order so go to the spa and have a massage and mani/pedi, put your feet up, you deserve it. Pick up Wedding Rings/License
Pick Up Wedding Rings and Marriage License
Make sure they fit properly. If the don’t, the jeweler should be able to size them for you before the wedding day. While you are out, this would also be a good time to pick up your marriage license. It may have already been sent by mail to you, if not swing by the Court House or County office and pick it up.
Confirm with & Pay Vendors
Give all your vendors a call to make sure that everything is good to go. This includes payment and directions to the venue. If you need to make any adjustments or preparations due to any changes, tell them now. This will give you that extra piece of mind on your magical day.
Final Dress Fitting
You have probably had a few fittings at this point. This one is it! They are gonna get your measurements just right so that when it’s time to walk down the isle everything is perfect.
Break in Wedding Shoes
Depending on what type of shoes you are planning to wear will dictate how long it takes to break them in. Regardless, you don’t want your wedding day to be the first time you’re trying them on. Walk around your house for a few hours or even wear them to work if possible.
Make Place Cards for Guests
This can very easily done inside a Word Doc or a Google Doc. Unless you wish to hand write notes, some people do this, we would suggest the print method as it will save you a lot of time. Depending on how you kept track of the guest list, you make be able to simply copy paste names. Check out this link to see a list of exciting Place Card templates and ideas.
Delegate Wedding Duties
Gotta have a helper! You have friends and family for a reason. Having extra sets of eyes and hands can get rid of all those risk factors that you have worried yourself over. Is it your maid of honor, mother or close friend? Delegate some one or many individuals to keep the show running. And if possible have a backup. Someone who can jump in and help if they are needed.
Plan and Take A Self Care Day
Time to treat yourself! You have been working hard all year getting things ready. Time to kick back. Everyone has their own way to relax: reading, getting a massage, having a drink or two. Take some time to calm your inner wedding queen and breath.
