Ever thought about what you should escape from doing the week before your wedding?
From having a checklist of what TO DO and knowing what you have left on those last
minute checkpoints, consider what you should NOT DO instead of what you have left to
do. This will be more beneficial so that you can avoid all of the mistakes that could
result in a downfall or extra stress coming your way.
Do not procrastinate on DIY-ing your last minute
decorations and extra projects that you had pinned on Pinterest. Have everything done
in advance so that all you should be caring about is your makeup, hair, and having
fun! Waiting last minute can end badly and your projects could fall apart or not come out
how you expected!
Food brings you energy and if you skip meals and don’t eat, you
will become hungry and angry, resulting in becoming ‘Hangry!’ Never skip a
meal and blame it on being too busy. This is an important factor to stay healthy for your
special day and not feel sick the day of. Nobody likes a hangry bridezilla!
Not getting enough sleep is a HUGE no-no! It’s your big day and you need sleep so you’re not a zombie at your
own wedding or wake up with dark circles under your eyes. Getting your beauty sleep will ensure that
you will look your best, feel your best, and be on your best mood.
This should not happen because you should not be
waiting last minute to have a serious conversation with your almost spouse. Make sure
that everything is talked about in advance so that neither of you are second guessing
being together after all this stress and planning. Before you get engaged, conversations
that have to do with where you will live, how many children do you both want, and
discussing future plans so that both of you are on the same page is a must.
Wanting to try-out a different style or color to your
hair the week before is something that should not be tried. You can have an image in
your head of a look you like for the future, but do not play around with your hair a week
before your wedding. To play it safe, keep your hair the way it is and for the style you
have planned to be done for your wedding. Anything drastic will be a shock and
something you will not be used to. Try to choose something that you had a trial on and
will have enough time to fix if any problems should arise.
If you know that you will be outside, make sure that you put
on heavy sunscreen. Burning your body is the least thing you want for your wedding.
Not only will you look like a tomato, but also you will want to be applying aloe to your
body all day and night. Wear sunscreen or avoid the sun for the week before your event
to be safe and not peeling for your wedding.
It is great to still be active and workout, but do not over extend
your workouts. This will result with being sore and you could potentially pull a muscle.
Having to chat with family and friends all day and dance will not be fun if your muscles
are sore and achy. Try to keep the same workouts you have been doing and nothing
crazy new like wanting to try that new class your gym is having.
Let friends and family help you
finish your tasks that you need so that you can enjoy some time to yourself. Delegate
tasks and let others in on your checklist so that everyone can pitch in some of their time
instead of giving all of your time. This will make things go easier on you and will
bring you less stress. Last minute tasks when you need to start getting yourself ready can
be annoying, so let others in on what you have left to check up on. Then you can enjoy
the nail salon and have time to cleanse yourelf!
