Last Minute Details: Are You Really Ready For Your Big Day?

Weddings are funny things. On the one hand, they're one of the most wonderful and important moments in a lot of people's lives. They give you and the person you love most in the world the chance to promise yourselves to each other in front of your friends and family. And on the other hand, they can be a total nightmare of planning and stress to the point where a lot of people feel a sense of relief when it's all over. Well, if you really want your wedding to feel as wonderful as possible, the best thing that you can do is make sure that you're prepared for it so that you're not running around in a panic at the last minute. With that in mind, here are some ways to make sure that you're really ready for your big day.

Think about photos
Your wedding photographer was probably one of the first vendors you hired when planning your wedding, after spending time trawling through lots of portfolios and finding one with a style you loved. While a good photographer will know all of the best shots to take, if there's anything specific you want including then be sure to discuss this with them ahead of time. Perhaps your engagement or wedding rings are family heirlooms and you'd like some close up shots. Maybe you'd like photos with specific combinations of family members in them. You might want a particular type of pose to show off your dress detail.

Get your look sorted
If you planned on losing weight, toning up or changing your appearance in some way before your big day then chances are you started on this many months ago. You've probably chosen your makeup, your hairstyle and even your accessories. However, don't overlook the finer details. Start a skincare regime and stick to it, so your skin is at its best and is the perfect blank canvas to your wedding makeup. If you're having your lashes and brows done, go with a trial run beforehand so you can check they will look how you want on the day. 

Know what you're going to say
You're going to have a lot of emotions floating around your head on your big day, most of them truly wonderful, so the last thing you want is to be panicking over things like your vows or what you're going to say at the ceremony. Make sure that you have things written down and that you've practised them at least a few times. That way you're not going to run the risk of drawing a blank when it comes to the big moment. Sure, you're not performing and no one's going to judge you, but anything you can do to make your big day go off without a hitch is going to make your life a lot easier.

All of this planning might seem like overkill but the truth is that weddings can be extremely complicated which means that, if you're not properly prepared, there are a whole host of things that can go wrong and leave you feeling stressed out. By being prepared you're able to just get on with the most important task of having the best possible day.
