Do’s and Don’ts for the Night Before Your Wedding
DON’T drink a lot of alcohol at
the rehearsal dinner. Limit yourself to a glass of wine
or champagne for toasting at dinner. Instead, drink plenty
of water – it will make you feel and look good for
your wedding day.
DO eat a good dinner. Don’t just
nibble – you’ll need plenty of energy for
the day ahead. Stay away from spicy foods or rich, heavy
desserts. They may give you indigestion and stop you from
getting a good night’s sleep.
DON’T go out after the rehearsal
dinner. There will be lots of friends, relatives and out-of-town
guests that will want to see you – but resist the
temptation and go home directly after the rehearsal dinner.
After the rehearsal dinner, DO spend time
with people that are close to you… your parents,
your bridesmaids or your fiancé. Try not to be
around people that can be annoying or cause you any stress.
In addition, DO spend some quiet time
alone to meditate or visualize your wedding day. Try taking
an aromatherapy bath with fragrant candles and soft music
and just relax! Use this time to really visualize your
wedding day. Picture it clearly (with details) in your
mind – everything flowing perfectly!
DON’T over do it! The night before
the wedding is not the time to be putting together your
favors or to begin packing for the honeymoon. Make sure
you plan accordingly and have everything done before the
rehearsal dinner – if not, ask for help!!
DO go to sleep early. This may be difficult
with all of the excitement. Allow yourself some time to
wind down after the rehearsal dinner and before you climb
under the covers. Do something you enjoy that relaxes
you, such as reading a book or listening to soothing music.
The bath may help you get drowsy!
