The day before your DIY wedding day is finally here.
You may have hired a venue dresser, florist, and everybody else to do the jobs for you, but what if you will do the flower arranging, the venue dressing, the table plan, arrange the tables and chairs, in fact, everything yourself?
What’s more, you have got a million and one things to do, and you have only got a certain amount of time to do it in. To make things worse, you’ve got friends and family popping in throughout the day to say “hi” and end up staying for hours on end.
What does this mean for you? Your jobs aren’t getting done…….
Please don’t panic; here are my 3D’s as to how you can make the day before your DIY wedding day a little easier on yourself; after all, you will have enough to do!
Firstly you need to set yourself a DEADLINE.
A time when you finish off – if it doesn’t get done, it can get done in the morning by your Ushers, or it won’t get done at all. You need to make sure when the time comes. For example 6:00 pm, you need to walk away and have some downtime. If you don’t do this before you know it, the clock is striking midnight, and you will not have any relaxing time.
Secondly, DELEGATE, before the day before your DIY wedding day.
Make a list of all of the jobs that need doing and delegate them out to your wedding party and friends. Please make sure that the tasks you want people to do are written with clear instructions to get on with the job in hand and not to keep disturbing you.
Finally, make sure you have some DOWN TIME.
If the thought of the massive list of tasks you need to get through on the day before your wedding day is still filling you with fear, then why not hire a wedding coordinator? Apart from working on your Wedding day, I can also be available the day before to take the stress away from you. We can work together beforehand to go through the list of jobs that need completing. I can delegate them out to the correct people – and ensure that the tasks have been finished correctly. I can also ensure that you get that downtime too.
