2 Weeks To Go! September 8, 2011

My post today is going to be a mix of personal reflection and advice 🙂 My sister is getting married 2 weeks from this coming Saturday! It is such a crazy feeling – I feel like it was just yesterday when she called to tell me she was engaged. I am her Matron of Honor – and any of you that have had that role in the past, you can imagine how I am feeling at this point 🙂 Anxious, excited, nervous, overwhelmed, READY for the day to get here! These last 2 weeks are critical for the MOH – you must keep the Bride calm, the MOB calm, and relay pertinent information to the Bridesmaids – among a list of other things of course. My biggest piece of advice to all of you MOH’s out there would be to be as proactive as possible and ASK the Bride how you can help – don’t wait for her to come to you. This is not only good for the Bride, but very good for you because hopefully you will avoid any last-minute melt downs 😉

Now for the Brides – your last 2 weeks’ checklist is below 🙂

  • Get your marriage license – most important!
  • Pick up your wedding rings
  • Wrap gifts for wedding party, parents, and any others
  • Follow up with all vendors and ceremony officiant – confirm arrival times
  • Email wedding party a schedule for the wedding weekend
  • Call guests who havent RSVPed yet – or ask your MOH to do this
  • Give final headcount to all necessary vendors
  • Bride & Groom both get final haircuts
  • Confirm transportation and lodging for honeymoon and PACK
  • Plan something fun for the night/day before – not including the rehearsal dinner
  • Pamper yourself and get ALOT of sleep
  • Have at least one date night with your hubby-to-be in the last 2 weeks 🙂

There are quite a few other things that need to be done in the last 2 weeks, but these are my top priorities 🙂
