7 Things To Do The Night Before The Wedding

Share:

The night before your wedding can be a bit scary and overwhelming, as you and the rest of your anxious body know that tomorrow is the beginning of the rest of your life. We do, however, have a few tips to help you be prepared to make that next step!

Food & Drink

No matter what your plans are for dinner, be careful to watch what you’re eating, especially because no bride wants to attempt to squeeze into a wedding dress. Avoid a big blow out dinner; instead opt for some dark, leafy greens, brown rice and a piece of grilled fish or chicken. And be sure to limit your alcohol, too – beware of the bloat!

Pamper Yourself

You should take the time the night before to pamper yourself and relax. You’ll have plenty of time tomorrow to be stressed; take tonight slow and easy. Try a face masque, hand and foot soak and even some under eye cream. This part is especially fun with a few of the girls from your bridal party!

Practice Your Vows

If you’re saying your own vows or planning on making a speech, now is a great time to run through these to help get any of those last minute jitters out. Plus, you’ll most likely be pretty emotional when reading them in front of everyone tomorrow. If you practice now you won’t need to worry about stumbling over your words.

Say No to Social Media

While you’re very excited about tomorrow and can’t wait to share every last detail with every single person you know, tonight’s a good time to just step away from the social media and the cell phone. You want that “ooh and ahh” moment to be when you walk down the aisle in front of everyone for the first time; don’t give everything away or it’ll ruin the element of surprise.

Write a Love Letter

If you and your hubby-to-be are spending the night apart, take this alone time to write out a very sweet, kind and loving letter about how much you care about him. The two of you could coordinate this together then read them right before the wedding; it’s just an extra added touch of romance!

Check In All Your Reservations

Between you and your fiancé, you will want to decide who is checking the reservations tonight. Depending on your honeymoon plans, sometimes you may have to check in with your flight, hotel or other means of transportation. This is one thing you don’t want to forget! Also, this is a great time to make sure those bags are packed for your honeymoon, especially if you’re leaving after the reception or early the next morning!

Sleep!

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure you get enough sleep because you have a long and big day ahead of you. No matter where you are or who you’re with, set a bedtime, let them know and have everyone stick to it. This way everyone will be well rested and ready to get a jump start in the morning.

Just remember to take a deep breath, let it all sink in and relax. If you stick to a few of these rules, you’ll be good to go for that fabulous day tomorrow!
