Do These Tasks the Morning of Your Big Day

You have most likely been dreaming of your big day since you were a little girl. From the big princess ballgown to the gorgeous flowers that comprise your bouquet, you have developed each and every little detail to represent your interest and the vision you have always had for your wedding. Once everything has been created, it’s now almost time to walk down the aisle.

However, are you aware of some of the tasks that you should take part in the morning of your big day?

Here at I Thee Wed, we believe that your wedding planning should be a breeze. That’s why we have gathered some of the top tasks that you should take part in the morning of your wedding day. If you are curious to learn what these tasks are, be sure to continue reading:

·         Don’t forget to eat! Your nerves may be high, you may be full of excitement, and your stomach may be a little upset. So, it is important that you make sure to eat in the morning, even if your tummy isn’t feeling up to the task. Opt for fresh fruit, whole grains, orange juice, and plenty of water. However, if your stomach just is not feeling up to eating too much, saltine crackers are always a gentle choice. Eating will have you prepared to walk down the aisle, as you obviously would not want to feel lightheaded at the altar.
·         Pamper yourself. It’s your big day! So, of course you should be pampered. Don’t you agree? Take some time to relax and ease into getting ready, as the last thing you want to feel is rushed. If you have time, get a massage the morning of your wedding, as it will help to ease your body and any nerves you may be feeling. Also, don’t forget to make a trip to the salon (or have them come to you!) for professional hair and makeup. If you look your best, you will certainly feel your best.
·         Have some fun. Your wedding day should be anything but stressful. You have already planned your big day, so the last thing you should do is worry. Have some fun with your bridesmaids! Wear matching shirts or robes with everyone’s titles on them, such as “Bride” and “Bridesmaid”. Also, take some selfies, listen to music, have some mimosas, and overall, enjoy the company of one another. Having fun will certainly get you in a great mood for your walk down the aisle.

Your big day should be one of the most magical days of your life! And these simple tips will certainly assist you in creating it to be a dream come true. Here at I Thee Wed, we would be so honored to assist you in developing your wedding. If you are still on the hunt for a greater Cincinnati wedding planner, please contact us today.

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

So, when you begin visiting venues and you learn that a venue has an event coordinator who tells you that you do not need to hire a wedding coordinator/planner, ask them if they will show up at the hotel while you and your girls are getting ready earlier in the day. Ask if they will be with you …

Emily + Tom

One of the perks of being in this business as a planner is the opportunity that we're given to really get to know our clients. I worked with such a special family last season and felt privileged and honored to be their planner. I felt like "one of the family" with this bride's family. The closeness and openness they have with each other and the way they are enjoying life is so refreshing and inspiring. They possess a unique family closeness that I can only hope for with my family as my children grow older. Emily was so easy-going and appreciative when it came to planning her wedding, as well as with the particulars that her mom and dad expressed. Her groom Tom was equally as expressive. These two are so much in love and I had so much fun working with them!

I love this pic of the girls kissing their mama!

In case you're wondering what this is, they are "Rolling on the River"!
