So it is now the day before your wedding, I cannot begin to imagine what you must be feeling. However, here is a list of things to do the day before to make sure you are ON POINT when you walk down the aisle!
- Get a facial
Invite the girls over and have a typical girls night. There is no need to go to the spa. Just have the girls come over and you all can apply a facial mask with cucumbers of course. Do the whole nine! Here is a couple of options:
- Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque $4.00
You can find this mask at the drugstore (CVS, Walgreens, etc)
- Olay Regenerist Daily Thermal Mini-Peel $16.00
This is a moisturizing and exfoliating treatment. It will give you a healthier looking complexion for your big day.
- St. Ives Scrub and Mask – Smooth & Nourished Oatmeal, $4
This mask is part scrub and part face mask. It removes dry skin. Not to mention it smells delicious.
- Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser Mask, $8
It kills acne-causing bacteria and penetrates deep into your pores at the same time.
- Bioré Self Heating One Minute Mask, $6
It only requires one minute of work, making it the most user-friendly treatment on the list.
2. Apply Under eye cream
Even if you get plenty of rest the day before your wedding you still want to make certain you will not have those dreadful bags under your eyes. It is your wedding day, looking flawless is a must.
3. Avoid Drinking!
Although, while having a girls night is hard to not bring out the wine, you should NOT drink. What can be worse then waking up with a hangover the day of your wedding. I’m sure you would prefer to wake up feeling like a princess, not like you got hit by a train! Put the bottles of wine away and hydrate on water. It will cleanse your body.
4. Set a bed time
I know we are all adults, however, it is best to give yourself a set time to go to bed. Hubby to be shouldn’t be sleeping next to you so there shouldn’t be any distractions. Let everyone who will bother you at 2 am know that you will be in bed at a certain time, and STICK TO IT. Put your phone on silent and get that BEAUTY SLEEP!
5. Stay away from Social Media
I cannot stress this enough. The day before your wedding is a day for you & only you! The whole world doesn’t need to know what you are doing, plus that gives people more room to annoy you. Disconnect & focus on you.
6. Say bye-bye to Hubby-to-be
It is going to be hard to not communicate for 24 hours but the ending result will be AMAZING. No texting, calling, instant messaging, tweeting, facetiming. NONE OF IT. Imagine that back in the day, brides didn’t even meet their husband till they walked down the aisle, so you should be fine. Trust me, the element of surprise is priceless.
7. Write a letter
You can’t talk to him but writing a letter about your feelings for the big day will mean the world to him. Let your maid of honor deliver it to him just before the ceremony commences. Trust me girl, it will bring him to tears. He is marrying the women of his dreams. This letter will be the topping on the cake.
8. Cross your T’s and dot your I’s
Make sure to communicate with your event coordinator. Make certain that everything is up to par and there is no loose ends. Although, your planner should be on top of everything, it will help you sleep better if you double check.
9. Check-in you Flight
IF you are leaving for your honeymoon shortly after your wedding day, be sure to pull up your itinerary and check if there are any upgrades, delays, or cancellations. It would suck to show up at the airport ready to go and your flight was delayed or cancelled.
10. Have fun!
It is the day before your wedding. The girls are over, you have your masks on..WATCH SOME MOVIES, PLAY BOARD GAMES, get in the wedding mood. But remember do not stay up to late!! Build your excitement for the big day, watch wedding movies. Netflix has a great selection of Chick-flicks.
Your wedding day is here and I hope it is everything you ever dreamed about. If you are still planning and just reading this blog entry for fun, Call Aqua Reception for an appointment and we will make your dreams come true. (305)559-4004.
