It is finally here – the details of the wedding are finalized, and it is time for you to get married! The day of your wedding can be a flurry of excitement, and amongst that chaos, it can be difficult for some grooms to get focused and ready. These reminders will help you get prepared for the big day and feel your best as you walk down the aisle.
Make a Checklist
In the days leading up to the wedding, it is a smart idea to make a wedding day checklist of the things you need to do, as well as what you need to bring with you to the venue. Having this checklist handy will make things run much more smoothly the day of the wedding, and will eliminate the possibility of accidentally leaving something important behind! It’ll also help calm any pre-wedding day nerves. The more prepared you are, the better you will feel.
Check-in with the Groomsmen
It is a smart idea to check in with your groomsmen the day before your wedding to ensure they are all up to speed and ready to go. Make sure they have all that they need (suits or tuxes, shoes, socks, etc.), and that they are fully aware of any special duties they might have.
Get Rest the Night Before
Even if you hit the town to celebrate the night before your wedding, make sure you aren’t staying out too late. You’ll want to be well-rested and feeling your best the day of your wedding. Fight the urge to party too hard, and do what you need to do to take care of yourself.
Start the Day Early
There is no point in rushing yourself the morning of your wedding. Get up early and give yourself plenty of time to get ready and hang out with your groomsmen before the ceremony. This will ensure you can work through any small hiccups that might come up and make sure everything runs smoothly. You’ll feel much more relaxed and ready to go!
Get Some Exercise In
Whether you are a dedicated gym rat or an occasional jogger, it is a good idea to get in some movement on the morning of your wedding. This will help you work off any pre-wedding jitters and get you pumped up for the day!
Eat a Big Breakfast
With the excitement and chaos on the day of your wedding, it can be easy to forget to eat. Make sure you carve out some time to enjoy a big breakfast so that you stay energized and feeling your best.
Keep Your Eyes on the Rings
The last thing you want is to lose track of the rings on the day of your wedding. Make sure whoever is in charge of the rings has them in their possession, and that they make it safely to the ceremony.
Carve Out Some Alone Time
You’ll be spending a lot of time with your groomsmen as you are getting ready, but be sure to work in some alone time to reflect. Give yourself the opportunity to soak in the excitement of the day and be fully present!
