A Few Wedding Reminders!

As wedding season is upon us, I thought that I would share a few things to remember for the month leading up to your wedding through to your wedding day. Being as prepared as you can for the day of your wedding will ensure a smoother wedding celebration!!

  • Break in your SHOES!! And just in case that doesn't work for the day of your wedding, make sure to place a more comfortable pair of shoes under the chair at your reception that you can change into if needed.

  • Remember to BOOK your MANICURE AND PEDICURE for the day before the wedding about a month out. Nail Salons and Spas are very busy on Fridays and you don't want to wait until the last minute to book!

  • Review and Confirm HONEYMOON travel reservations! Also remember to make reservations for any special restaurants, outings, spa appointments or sporting events you would like to take part in on your honeymoon.

  • WAIT to change your name...until after you return from your honeymoon! The name on your airline ticket has to match the name on your passport and driver's license. The last thing you are going to want to do is be held up at the airport before your honeymoon!

  • Make sure to stock up on all PRECRIPTIONS for your honeymoon! ie: Birth Control, Disposable Contact Lenses, Allergy Meds, etc.

  • About a month or two before your wedding, visit your DOCTOR to ensure that your "cycle" will not interfere with your wedding or honeymoon!! I have already seen a catastrophy at a wedding this year!! Also, make sure you are prepared for ANY surprises on your wedding day!!

  • Keep checking your REGISTRIES up until a few days before the wedding to ensure that there are gifts still available at all price points.

  • Confirm and Reconfirm your WEDDING NIGHT HOTEL reservation!!!

  • Make Arrangements for your PET while you are out of town, have NEWSPAPERS and MAIL stopped and remember to arrange transportation to and from the airport if you are flying out of town for your honeymoon.

  • About one month out, obtain your MARRIAGE LICENSE and make sure it will still be valid through your wedding day. The link below will lead you to all of the offices in the greater Seattle area where you can obtain your marriage license:

  • Start writing your THANK YOU notes as the gifts start to come in. It will make for one less thing you have to do when you get back from your honeymoon.

  • Remember to THANK your parents and bridal party after the wedding. Send them flowers or a handwritten card.

  • After the wedding, if there is a bad stain on your WEDDING DRESS, don't wait to take it to the cleaners. Otherwise hang it up and take it to the cleaners one you return.

I work with an Officiant that insists to the bride and groom that they should go out on a DATE during the week before their wedding. May it be over a cup of coffee or dinner and movie, get away from the family and friends and PAUSE for a moment TOGETHER! Enjoy each other's company and excite about the next few days to come!

The month leading up to your wedding is such a wonderful time. It is filled with pure excitment and lots of celebration! Take time to pause and enjoy this time with your friends, family and especially your fiance!
