10 Things To Do 30 Days Before Your Wedding Day…
I’m back again with some help for the last 30 days of waiting before the big walk down the aisle. Tomorrow is June 23rd exactly 30 days from my July 23rd wedding. In preparation for my big day I have set out a list of the top 10 things I need to get done over the course of this month. Check out my list and see if there’s anything you would add…all additions are welcome in the comments section!!!
# 10 – Pick the music: at this point most of the details have been hammered out but the music for the wedding ceremony and reception is often a last minute detail. Take the time to make your playlists in advance that way you can enjoy the music selection process without the stress of a super tight deadline.
# 9 – Try on the dress: for me it’s been well over 2 months since the dress was matched to the perfect pair of shoes. This is a great time to check the fit make sure there will be no need for last minute alterations.
# 8 – Get the rings cleaned: My engagement ring has been through a lot since I first got it. Now is the time to make sure you can get it cleaned and repaired if need be in time for the big day.
#7 – Start dreaming about the honeymoon: with the majority of wedding details out of the way now is a great time to day dream about your honeymoon and to begin making a list of plans for that special trip.
# 6 – Check the airline website: make sure you are up to date on the TSA regulations and airline restrictions. Make sure to plan for the possibility of added fees for checking baggage and the need to arrive early in order to process checked baggage.
# 5 – Find a house or pet sitter: since your beloved pets will likely not be attending you Vegas Wedding (or other destination wedding) make sure you have your pet sitter all lined up and if you are boarding your pet now is a great time to make a preliminary in person visit. If you are having someone stay at your home make plans for key tradeoffs and make sure to have them over to get the lay of the land.
# 4 – Check-in with guests: make sure all of your guests have booked their travel arrangements and that they don’t need any help find the perfect hotel, flight or rental car. For us this was key since we are the “Vegas Experts” and most of our guests have never been before. Your guests many need a bit of help booking travel to a destination that offers tons of options.
# 3 – Break in the shoes: if you’re like me you got fabulous new shoes for the wedding. Nothing hurts this fabulous feeling like blisters. Make sure to wear your shoes around the house as much as possible over the next 30 days. Find the potential blister spots and get a blister balm if needed.
# 2 – Pay household bills in advance: one thing we tend to neglect while hyper-focused on our wedding is the everyday things. Just because you’re away for your wedding or your honeymoon doesn’t mean that the bills still won’t be due on the normal day they have always been due. I highly suggest paying off the bills that will be due while you’re away celebrating in advance. Coming home to late fees is never fun.
# 1 – Prep your body, skin, hair and nails for the big day: there is a lot going on over the next 30 days but one simple change will help your body be ready and at its best for the big day. WATER!!! Cut out all drinks but water…hydration is key to keeping your body in tip-top shape, it makes hair shiny, nail strong and skin supple. Drink water, yes plain water for the next 30 days. It’s the hardest thing on this list to pull off but the results are totally worth it. And just think all the money you save on not buying sugary drinks can be used towards your honeymoon!!! By the way diet drinks do not get a pass they are just as bad for your body…water is the way to go.
Thanks so much for stopping by…feel free to add you 30 day to do lists in the comments section…we’d love to hear from you!!!
