Sit down together to come up with your wedding playlist. Spend some time on YouTube or Spotify to explore the best songs for your special day.
2. Remind Guests
Everyone’s busy all the time. There’s no wedding without your guests. Make sure your guests received your “save the date invitations” to your wedding day. You can create your own e-invitations with save the date templates. You shouldn’t be shy to send out repeated reminders to your guests. People will always appreciate another nudge to put the date in their diary.
3. Practice Your Kiss
It may sound strange to practice your kiss. But, when on the altar you only have one shot to get it right. You don’t want to bump heads or kiss for too long. Besides, practicing kissing your soon to be husband or wife should be lots of fun.
4. Heart to Heart with Your Bridesmaids
It’s all rushed on your wedding day. You’ll be the center of attention for the whole day. However, it’s important to take some time to have a heart to heart with your girls. These are the people who have stood by you through thick and thin. You can show your gratitude in the privacy of your bedroom while they’re making sure your hair looks great and you’re nails are stunning.
5. Get on the Same Page with Your Photographer
A photographer is a mysterious person in the crowd at every wedding. They are constantly snapping away throughout the day.
