April is here! The days are getting longer, the sun is shining brighter, and the countdown to your wedding day is getting shorter. As the big day is getting closer, your to-do list should be getting shorter, too! To make sure you are prepared for your wedding day, the wedding coordinators at Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta, NJ have created a last-minute checklist of the little things you may not have remembered!
Get your beauty sleep!
You’ve spent the past few months (or years) planning your wedding, now is the time to relax and get some rest so you can fully enjoy your wedding experience without feeling beat down and exhausted.
Confirm honeymoon plans.
The honeymoon should be the most relaxing part of your wedding, so make sure you have everything in order—reservations, flights, luggage, passports—to avoid any unnecessary stress during your wedding.
Tie up loose ends at work.
Don’t spend the week of your wedding stressing about work; finish up as many assignments as possible before your wedding week so you can focus more on your wedding.
Gather vendor tips.
Fill and label an envelope for each of the vendors you may be having at your wedding—photographer, photo booth, DJ or band, florist, makeup artist, hair dresser, videographer, officiant, etc. Check out https://www.bridalguide.com/blogs/the-budget-guru/how-to-tip-wedding-vendors for a wedding vendor tip cheat sheet.
Break in your wedding shoes.
You’ll be on your feet a lot on your wedding day. Do a couple of test runs on different surfaces in your wedding shoes. The last thing you want is to be in pain and to not be able to dance your wedding day away!
Review your wedding vows.
Don’t overthink it too much, but take a moment to read over your vows so you feel comfortable when the time comes to say “I do!”
Once you’ve checked all of the above tasks off of your to-do list, you can leave the rest to the wedding coordinators and staff at your lakeside wedding venue in NJ! From coordinating with vendors to gathering all personal décor and paperwork to breaking out the emergency kit for last-minute dress fixes, you won’t have a thing to worry about on your wedding day at Rock Island Lake Club!
