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 are going to 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 have got friends and family popping in throughout the day just to say “hi” and end up staying for hours on end.
What does this mean for you? Your jobs aren’t getting done…….
Don’t panic, I am here to help you by giving 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 think about.
Firstly you need to set yourself a DEADLINE. A time when you finish off – if it’s not done, it will either get done in the morning by your Ushers, or it wont get done at all. You need to make sure when the time comes. for example 6:00pm, 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. Make sure that the tasks you want people to do are written with clear instructions so that they can get on with the task in hand so as not to keep disturbing you.
Finally make sure you have some DOWN TIME. I have already mentioned about having a finish time. Have a plan in place for something to do on the night before you wedding. It maybe going out for a meal with friends and family, or having a relaxing night in with your bridesmaids. The other reason for planning on downtime is that it also ensure you do get finished on time.
If the thought of the huge 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? As well as working on the 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 to be done. I can delegate them out to the correct people – and ensure that the jobs are done correctly. I can also ensure that you get that down time too.
