So, your big day is just a week away. Are you sure that everything is ready so that your wedding will go off without a hitch? Well, you have seven days left to double check everything and iron out any potential issues. Now isn’t the time to sit back and relax – in actual fact, most couples find that the week running up to their wedding is extremely busy and they have a lot to do to finalize the smaller details.
Are you wondering how you should spend the last week before you get hitched? Here is your final wedding countdown!
Break In Your Shoes
One great way to spend this last week is to break in your shoes. After all, you don’t want to start walking down the aisles only to find that the shoes are tight and might cause blisters! So, whenever you are at home, you should pop your wedding shoes on and make sure they are broken in before the big day. Just make sure that you do this when your partner isn’t around – you don’t want the groom to see what you will be wearing for the wedding!
Check-In With The Groom’s Jobs
Are you sure that the groom has ordered their suit from John Henric? And are you happy that they have got their groomsmen all organized with their suits as well? If you aren’t too certain that they’ve taken care of their jobs, it’s worth checking in with them to make sure that they are ready for the big day too. If they aren’t, you could risk meeting a suit-less groom at the church!
Chase Up Missing RSVPs
We are all busy people these days, and there is a slight chance that some of your really busy guests might have forgotten to send you a RSVP. If you haven’t heard back from someone, it’s a good idea to touch base with them and find out if they are planning on coming or not. If they can’t, then you could always offer their place to someone else, or simply tell the catering company that there is one less person to cater for.
Collect The Cake
If you are having a cake made for you by a local bakery, you should pick it up from them a couple of days before the wedding. If a family friend is making it for you, then they will probably finish it a day or two before, so it’s worth finding out if you need to collect it from them or if they will bring it on the day.
Finalize The Seating Plan
Finally, it’s worth taking a look at your seating plan and making sure that you are happy with it. This will give you the chance to make any necessary final changes. Usually, you will need to take a look and review the plan if anyone drops out at the last minute as well.
So, which of these last-minute jobs do you still need to sort out before your wedding?
