Ah, I can hear it already — the obnoxious groomsmen lying about losing your ring, your mother crying that her baby girl is all grown up and the perfectly matched bridesmaids gowns fluttering around the bridal room. This could only mean one thing: wedding season is upon us.
It was such a hot and sticky day when I woke up on Sept. 20, 2014, but none of that mattered because I was going to marry the man of my dreams that day. I was in a chaotic mind set running around and yelling at my sister to get this or get that. Don’t do this ladies, you hear me? Your wedding day is going to be over in the blink of an eye and trust me when I say you don’t want to be worrying about the small, petty things.
Yes, I understand most of us are control freaks when it comes to our wedding, but word of advice from the girl who got hitched half a year ago, “let someone else take charge”.
A week before your nuptials write down your ‘wedding emergency kit’ and hand it over to your maid of honor. Mind you, the maid of honor has duties to make sure everything goes according to plan and if yours was anything like mine, she’ll bustle through all the mess, handing you a mimosa or 3 on the way.
Your ‘wedding emergency kit’ should include:
- bobby pins/hair comb/hair teasing brush/hair spray
- lip gloss/chap stick/lipstick/lip liner
- tissues (and lots of them)
- small mirror
- small sewing kit
- safety pins
- extra panty hoes
- wedding shoes
- flip flops (Trust me, you’re not going to want to be wearing heels while attempting Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s rendition of Dirty Dancing.)
- Crest White Strips/toothbrush/toothpaste
- phone charger
- button hook
- bridesmaid’s gifts
- groom’s gifts
- hair dresser and makeup artist
- honeymoon luggage/passports/money/license
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, stop stressing and enjoy these next few months as a single lady. One day you’re going to wake up and realize six months have passed to you being a Mrs. Cheers!
