1. DIY does not actually mean DIY unless you are a professional crafter

After your 6th hour attempting to make poms, or tediously looping string through your invitations you will curse whoever made you believe you could do this project yourself without ripping your hair out.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

2. The only thing your husband cares about is cake tasting and the food spread

thing2

There are always exceptions to this, but deep down we all know which part of the planning he will be waking up early for. Like a kid in a candy store, your future hubby will gladly shove 16 hor d’oeuvres down his throat before picking satin or taffeta for your bridesmaids.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

3. Enjoy the tasting, because you will never actually get to eat the food on your wedding day

You know those appetizers you are agonizing over? Eat as many as you can before the wedding, because you will not have time to eat. Make sure you nibble on at least something, though, so you don’t feel like you’re going to pass out.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

4. You really do need a day-of coordinator

The last thing you want to be worried about is when/if all of your amazing plans are going to come into play.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

5. You will catch yourself pinning/swooning while you’re at the office

 So you’re manager walked by your computer right as you were pinning that awesome centerpiece? Yeah, we’ve been there.

6. Apparently, your mother has a lot of opinions about table linens

things7

She could not manage to dress you in a cute outfit for first grade, but she can tell the difference between Eggshell I and Eggshell II.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

7. Everything will need to be altered…everything…all the things

Plan enough time for every dress to get altered. Bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom, you, etc. A bridesmaid finding out her dress is so big in the chest it falls off is NOT a crisis you can handle hours before.

 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

8. The little things will add up and stress you out

things9

Bridesmaid invites, wedding favors, vegan meals, etc. You know the crazy is coming so prioritize, make lists, and do not be afraid to delegate a little.

 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

9. You will be more obsessed with the weather than Al Roker

things11

The more you google a weather prediction for May 17, 2016, the more it will not change the actual outcome.

 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

10. Testing out your photographer with your engagement photos will put you at ease

Please, please, if you can, know exactly what you are getting from your wedding photographer. It is so important to get the photos you are really looking for, and having the same photographer for your engagement photos can be the perfect test run.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

11. Speaking of photos, have a shot list planned so you can get back to your party!

Cocktail hour should be just that..and hour…of cocktails. Know exactly what you want from your photo sesh so you can get back to dancing your behind off.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

12. You will need to take some “shake-it-off” time to remember the fun parts of the day

things14

Maybe it’s a T-Swift dance party with your bridesmaids, maybe it’s your first look with hubby-to-be, maybe it’s the one time you get to pee. Whatever it is, you will need to breathe a little to enjoy the day.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

13. Everyone will have an opinion, but it is your day

things15

Do not worry about anyone else’s opinion about your special day. It will be amazing, you will look amazing, and being married will be amazing!  And in cased you missed the first 13 Things All Brides Will Eventually Discover, here you go!
