Last minute advice?

Just wondering what last minute advice you girls had. Tomorrow I pick up my dress, the seating cards from the calligrapher, drop off the ribbon to the baker for the cake, drop off everything to the venue and get my spray tan. Friday is mani/pedi, any last minute things and the rehearsal. Saturday wedding! 

Just give any advice you may have, no matter how random it may be! (like someone just told me to wear a strapless bra during the morning so I don't have bra lines when I put my dress on... never would've thought of that- random but helpful) TIA!!

    Haha strapless bra was going to be one of mine!
    Hmmm Make sure you and the new DH take a private moment to soak everything in. We had a seperate car to get to the reception which gave us time to talk and re-live it.
    Make sure you eat breakfast even if its just nibbling at a bagle.
    Buy straws because once your make-up is done you won't want to drink out of a cup. Make sure you drink water once in your dress until after photos.
    Make sure you take a moment to look out at everyone at your ceremony and just feel the support from those people.
    Oh and pee right before putting on the dress. I promise as soon as you get in it THEN you will have to go!

    Laurie's advice is really good.  

    Don't forget the rings ;)

    If you provided the hall with anything that you want back, make sure you write it down and give it to them.  My MIL made a centerpiece for our escort card table and we forgot to tell them we wanted it and it was gone by the time we realized it the next morning.

    other than that.... just enjoy and don't sweat the small stuff.  No matter what goes wrong, you're still getting married and celebrating with your friends and family!

    My advice is: if at any point you are getting annoyed or stressed out and need a good laugh just think of my dad "The napkins!"  haha

    Make a list of all your vendors names and phone numbers and give it to someone else. 

    And make sure you eat.  I had a friend not eat and she got so sick she had to leave the party early. 

    Have a great time.

    Enjoy every minute! Don't sweat the small stuff, and after the ceremony take a moment to be with your DH. Even if it's just to say "I love you."

    Oh ..also...during hair/makeup  - wear a button down shirt so it is easy to remove and you don't ruin your lovely hair!

    Allie, can't believe your day is almost here!
    Get a good night sleep the night before
    Make sure you have breakfast-this is all I had the whole day. I regret not enjoying my own food but between the nerves and the dances, the speeches, etc, etc...it was impossible to eat.....
    Wear a button down shirt (with your strapless bra)that morning so you dont ruin your makeup/hair...
    Dont forget the rings....your MOH or a BM can take them snd give to the BM at church.
