Wedding planning doesn’t have to come to an overwhelming head the week of. Take these tips into consideration at least seven days in advance to make your big day as stress-free as possible.
Try on your full look from head-to-toe, including shoes and jewelry. Practice walking, sitting at a table, and overall making sure everything looks and feels comfortable.
Tie Loose Ends at Work
Take care of any big projects or assignments in advance so that you don’t have a to-do list of work tasks lingering. Work distractions are obviously the last thing you want to be thinking about, so be sure to plan for this as much in advance as possible.
Give a final head count to your hotel or caterer one week before the wedding. Sit down with your spouse-to-be and finalize the seating arrangements and be sure to send a copy to those who need it, like your wedding planner and photographer.
Make sure your marriage license (Ketuba in Hebrew) is in order and assign someone to keep track of it on the day-of to ensure it’s at the venue and ready to be signed.
Choose a family member to collect the card box, any wedding gifts that guests brought, and any decorations you may want to keep and take them home for you. Also assign a reliable friend or family member to take care of any fun social media accounts like testing out your Snapchat filter on the day of, or encouraging guests to use your wedding hashtag on Instagram.
Put together a list of your favorite tunes and pass it along to the DJ the week before the wedding so he or she can be prepped in advance.
