It is true, one can never be completely ready for marriage. And when it comes to your shaadi day, the pre-wedding jitters are natural. Your mind goes through a flurry of emotions that you might have no control over… Right from worrying about your wedding lehenga to the BIG shift in your life, a day prior to your wedding day can be quite overwhelming. In between all that wedding madness, sometimes, a lot of important things get missed out. To avoid any unnecessary hassles and last minute bridezilla moments, we have put together a handy list of the 24 things you must do 24 hours before your D-Day. Bookmark now!
We know, this seems like a no brainer, but trust us when we say this! A lot of times brides leave it to their mother or the bridesmaid to check on their clothes, shoes and jewellery. A stain, a broken hook or a missing earring stopper are things that always come unannounced. Therefore, it is advisable you do a thorough last minute check before you put them back in the wardrobe.
If you’re having a destination wedding or are shifting to the venue for the week long festivities, make sure you throw in a few comfortable outfits to wear in-between the functions. Trust us, a lot of brides forget to do so and end up wearing borrowed clothes! Keep a simple suit or saree ready for an intimate family ritual that might pop up, thanks to the Chandigarh wale tauji!
It’s best to reconfirm the important details one last time with all your vendors. We’re not asking you to go through every little detail, just a friendly call, 24 hours before your wedding will assure you (and them) that everything is as per schedule.
Take 5 minutes off your busy schedule and practise simple meditation and breathing techniques. It will help you calm down and feel more relaxed… A must for the bride-to-be.
We thrive on technology, but there is nothing more romantic than a handwritten letter. You could ask one of your bridesmaid to deliver it to him hours before the wedding. We are telling you, he’ll love the surprise.
All your bobby pins, lipstick, eyeliner, wet wipes (for the tears!), phone charger, medicine etc should be in your essentials clutch that could either be with you or your trusted bridesmaid.
For the wedding night and the morning after. Your sexy nightdress, lingerie, clothes for the morning, toiletries, mint, basic make-up and a chocolate bar for those midnight cravings!
You probably got your waxing done a couple of days before the wedding. Check for any unwanted hair and get shaving!
You really don’t want to be roaming around in those heels all night long. Take our advice and keep a pair of juttis in your bridal bag.
Your wedding day will be hectic and you need a trusted friend to be around you at all times… To help you through any uncomfortable situation. From helping you lift the heavy lehenga to guarding your phone and giving your lipstick a quick touch-up.
Go hug your mom, watch a movie with your sister or go for a walk with your father. You will probably miss these moments when once you get married.
If they’re not already with you, make sure you give them a call and command to see them! Nothing like spending the last few hours with all the special people!
Get that tub of Ben & Jerry’s or a double chocolate cupcake. It’ll surely make you happy instantly!
Wedding planning is no easy task and you surely need a relaxing pamper session after it all. Book yourself a spa session or better still, buy yourself a rosé wine, you deserve it, girl!
You probably would be wearing heels and definitely don’t want an awkward moment while walking down the aisle! Therefore, it always help to walk in your wedding shoes, just to make yourself comfortable in them. Oh, and don’t forget to strap on heel cushions as they make walking in heels, a lot less uncomfortable.
‘Coz, we know, you’ll forget.
It is easy to go overboard with all the sweets and chicken tikkas during the shaadi celebrations. So make sure you eat them moderately and include more veggies and fruits to keep that bloat away!
This a must. 8 glasses of water should be one rule you should never break!
Keep your crowning glory just as lustrous by getting a hot champi done just before your wedding day. Make sure you shampoo and condition them to keep them as healthy and shiny as they are.
Remember, practice makes perfect! This might sound weird but believe us, you are going to get a lot of pictures clicked and it’s best to know your most flattering pose.
You have come so far and you deserve all the happiness. It is finally happening and it will all go just fine. Be grateful and brace yourself for a new life ahead.
We can’t stress this enough! A lot of brides lose sleep over it and it is the nervous pangs that takes the better of them. Do not let this happen to you. Eat your dinner early and try and get your 8 hours of beauty sleep because tomorrow is going to be yours!
Your last conversation before you become husband and wife!
