The One Thing Brides Should Never Do Right Before The Wedding

Right before you get married is a very stressful time. The week before the wedding the brides is finalizing the seating chart, finishing any DIY projects, working out, getting her nails done, packing for the honeymoon, checking the weather, and fielding questions from vendors to family members to out of town guests. Like planning any major event, there’s always a big push at the very end, and the bride is the like the CEO of the wedding. Everything must go through her.

That’s why the one thing brides should never do right before the wedding is say yes to everything. It’s just too easy for her to get pulled in every direction, and to start being a people pleaser. If she does this, she is doomed to fail. If she starts saying yes to everything that is asked of her (yes, you can bring a plus 1… yes, I can pay extra for the bouquets… sure, the photographer can come two hours late) then she will be left feeling crappy about things. Brides, it’s your day! Here’s how to deal with the last-minute requests that will come your way:

What you can No to right off the bat: Changes to the guest list (ie. adding guests), additional charges from vendors, changes to vendor contracts.

Where you should defer to others: Make others do your dirty work for you! Redirect your guests’ questions to your planner, maid of honor, the groom or the parents. If people want to know about transportation, hotel accomodations, travel, dress code or any other aspects of the wedding, refer them to a wedding website where all the information is saved. Don’t start answering every little question that comes in. You don’t have time for that! You’ve got gift bags to stuff.
