Preparing For Your Wedding Day - From Wedding Shoes to the Bridal Emergency Kit

The wedding day is one of the biggest days of a woman's life. The bride has spent an average of 10 months preparing for their wedding and usually over 300 hours choosing the right dress, the right flowers, the right venue, and all of the other little details. However, no matter how many details the bride focuses on, there are a few important details that the bride needs to remember. Below are the main things that a bride should not forget to focus on for her big day.


First, the bride should not forget about her wedding shoes. Although countless hours are spent on choosing the dress, oftentimes, the bride waits until the last minute to choose her wedding shoes. This last minute rush does not allow the bride to properly choose the right bridal shoes.


If the bride is looking for ivory wedding shoes, she shouldn't forget that there are many shades of ivory and choosing any pair of shoes will sometimes not match her dress. However, the most important thing the bride needs to make sure of is that her shoes are comfortable. She is on her feet all day and the shoes are the only support she has. If the shoes start to hurt, the bride will feel very uncomfortable all day. Therefore, the bride needs to make sure she has something comfortable to wear all day. Whether it is a beautiful pair to wear down the aisle and then a pair of more casual flip flops, the bride should make sure that her wedding shoes are selected beforehand.

Second, the bride should prepare a bridal emergency kit case. That case should contain all of the little things she might need on the big day. These include the following: extra lipstick so she can reapply throughout the night, a compact to retouch, pins in case her hair starts to fall, water in case she becomes too dehydrated, a needle and thread for any last minute touch ups on the dress, and a little mirror for any last minute touch ups. The emergency kit can oftentimes be prepared by her bridesmaids, but in case they don't prepare anything, the bride should put all of these things together in preparation for the big day.


Finally, the other major thing the bride should prepare is the wedding day schedule and contact details for the vendors and the bridal party. The minute by minute schedule for that big day is imperative to making sure that everything happens on time. The contact details are so important in case someone is searching for a vendor. The bride should assign a person for each vendor and assign someone to make sure that the schedule is running smoothly.

After making the entire schedule, one important thing is for the bride to review that schedule with the main people responsible for the event and the main people helping the bride ensure that the day runs smoothly - the bridesmaids, the wedding coordinators, and the vendors. One tip for the bride is to print out multiple copies of the schedule and tape them everywhere - in the car, in the bathroom, in people's rooms so that everyone can glance at it throughout the day and help the bride with the timing and the coordination.

The wedding day can be a very stressful day or a wonderful day, as long as the bride is prepared. Making sure she has the above items will definitely help ensure a wonderful and smooth day. Source
