While you don’t want to torment your loyal bridesmaids, do put them to work. And don’t forget your fiance. No, he won’t care about the bridesmaids’ dresses, but there are plenty of tasks he can handle, such as creating the guest list, printing invitations, or finding a DJ and picking dance music.
2. Keep it small.
You’ve pictured the big cathedral wedding since you were 5. But is that really what you want when you’re 35?
3. Take care of yourself.
Eating right — or eating at all — might not be on your busy agenda, especially if you’re stressing about fitting into your gown. But don’t neglect your health.
4. Don’t worry about pleasing everybody.
This is your wedding, not your mother’s or mother-in-law’s. And beware — your bridesmaids may not be much comfort if they’re jealous of your happiness.
5. Check the temperature of your feet.
Most people getting married get cold feet at one time or another. Listen hard to your heart and your gut, and be honest with yourself and others.
