By the time you are all reading this, there will be one day left before the wedding! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone by. Before I get to my blog topic, I would just like to say, I have enjoyed being one of the Weddingbells bloggers so much. Getting feedback on the planning every week has been fantastic. Thanks to all the readers who have read my blogs and told me what they think. Reading all the other bloggers’ entries has been so much fun… and of course I’ve gotten some excellent ideas from them too. Thank you everyone for all the advice and tips! It has been so helpful! I’ll be sure to give you my post wedding feedback on what works and what does not!
Schedule, schedule, schedule… and then schedule some more. This is really the key to sanity in the final weeks. A “To do” list helps, but it can be really overwhelming looking at a huge list of tasks. (If you are in the earlier stages, check out this super cute “I do” list that I got from my sister at my bridal shower. FYI—(My “I do” list is not empty, haha, but I thought it would be nice to see the design without my chicken scratch all over it.) In the last couple weeks, I would recommend taking your “To do” list and scheduling those tasks into specific timeslots on your calendar so you know you have the time to get the jobs done. There is a feeling of relief, once all the remaining tasks are scheduled in and you know that everything will get done in time.
I am also going to plan out my every waking moment for the day before and the day of. The day of the wedding, we have to be there early in the morning to set-up. I’m hoping that by being organized, everything will go smooth and I’ll still have time to actually get ready for the wedding! There are some things you can get done the day before, like your nails and that is one less thing to have to fit in on the wedding day. When everything is scheduled in, you can turn off the “worrying brain” and just enjoy each scheduled item as it comes. I think that makes it much easier to enjoy the excitement and look forward to the wedding day without any stress. This is the route that I’m taking!
What are you doing to keep your cool in the two-week countdown?
