6 Things You Should Do Before Your Wedding

There is one day that we all look forward to, our wedding day. This will be the day when we walk down the aisle, tying our lives together with that one special person who has stolen our hearts. The day is filled with excitement, nervousness, and nerves. That is the one day that will be remembered forever. That’s why we all want this day to be perfect, which is why it’s essential to take care of a few details before the big day arrives.

You are about to embark on the most beautiful journey of your life. But before you say yes, many things need to be done to ensure you have a happy and successful marriage.

 

1) Make Sure You Have The Right Wedding Ring

Before your wedding day, the first thing to do is to make sure you have the right wedding ring. You should go shopping with your fiance before the big day and try on some different wedding rings until you find one that fits perfectly for both of you. Make sure it’s not too loose or too tight; if it’s too loose, it could slip off while you’re working up a sweat on the dance floor at your reception, and if it’s too tight, well, let’s say there are other reasons why this isn’t good news. The best thing about rings is getting them online and having them delivered. Or get them custom-fit to ensure they fit perfectly.

 

2) Make Sure Your Bridesmaids Are On Board

You will want to choose your bridesmaids very carefully since they are the ones who will be standing by your side on your big day. Before you ask them to take on these critical roles in your wedding party, make sure that they understand their duties and what you expect from them as friends and maids of honor. If you’ve chosen one or more people for this role who aren’t good at keeping secrets, now may not be the best time to tell them about those secret ceremonies leading up to the wedding night. And don’t forget: the best man is the groom’s right hand on his big day, so make sure those two choose each other carefully as well.

 

3) Do Not Forget The Cake

A cake is a must for any wedding day, and you will want to make sure you have the right one before your big moment arrives. The last thing that anyone wants is to be stuck with a dry or icky tasting cake, and that’s why it’s important to taste test (and double-taste test) until everyone involved is satisfied with what they’re serving up on this special day. It would help if you bought enough for all of your guests, so plan accordingly, so no one goes hungry.

4) Set A Schedule And Stick To It

If both of you haven’t already decided when and where you’re getting married, it’s best to set a date and location before you start making wedding plans. Talk to your fiance about when you want to get married and work from there. Don’t forget: if you choose a specific time for your ceremony, make sure both of you can make it at that time. If one of you says they have another appointment during the only hour the other person can do it, what are they supposed to do? Get someone else to be their witness? Choose another venue with more flexible hours, so both of you don’t have to stress out on this special day.

 

5) Resolve Any Issues With The In-Laws

Let’s face it: weddings are more of a “family” thing than a “just the groom and the bride” kind of occasion, at least as far as traditions go. If you want to work with your fiance’s family during this time, make sure you both agree on how much involvement they will have in the wedding before you start making any decisions for yourself and your future husband. It can be challenging if there is a disagreement between families, so the two of you must find a suitable resolution that makes everyone happy and capable of working together without issues or stress for each other.

 

6) Decide On Your Wedding Party And Get Them Involved

Another way to make sure everyone is on the same page as you and your fiance is to ask all of those involved in your wedding a few questions that will make everything run smoothly on the big day. These individuals will be there for both of you, so they must be informed about what their duties are, what they should wear, and how they can help the two of you pay attention to each other during this extraordinary time.

Weddings can be a difficult time for many people to get through. Make sure you tell your family, friends, wedding planner/organizer, and no one else. If you’ve chosen one or more people for this role who aren’t good at keeping secrets, now may not be the best time to tell them about those secret ceremonies leading up to the wedding night. Or perhaps don’t leave essential duties such as keeping track of your flowers or decorating a marquee with a friend who doesn’t have strong organisational skills.  And don’t forget: the best man is the groom’s right hand on his big day, so make sure those two choose each other carefully.

Before long, you will be married to the love of your life without having to worry about any hiccups that could have potentially ruined the day.
