Wedding planning is often far from a stress-free process. Between coordinating wedding parties and getting all of the menus in order, you may end up prioritizing some things and forgetting others. Before you cross your T’s and dot your I’s, make sure you remember to cover these wedding planning do’s.

Book Transportation Early

Your transportation to your ceremony, venue, and hotels should be booked as soon as you know where each location is and how many people you’ll need to move back and forth. Now, of course, this means you’ll have to get a head count earlier on, which never hurts to do anyway.

Not only will booking your transportation sooner give you peace of mind, but you’ll likely have a larger fleet to choose from.

Do a Hair and Makeup Trial

Just because a hairstyle looks good in an Instagram photo, it doesn’t mean it’s the best option for your wedding day hairstyle. You should always schedule a hair and makeup trial several weeks before your big day so you know exactly how beautiful you’ll look. You may realize during your trial that you don’t actually want a full up-do or that a smokey eye may not be the best makeup choice, so you can make changes for your big day.

Take It All In

Sure, you can get a little stressed out deciding what color you want your bridesmaids’ dresses to be and configuring your 100+ guest seating chart, but don’t remember to sit back for a second and enjoy it all. Your wedding is one of the happiest days of your life, so make sure to find joy in planning it.
