Checklist for Brides the Night Before Your WeddingThe day you have been anticipating for months (or years) has finally arrived. Tomorrow, you will become a bride. Hopefully, all of the planning has paid off and everything has come together well. Maybe you are putting together some last-minute things and figuring out a few more details. Whether everything is finished for your wedding or not, there are a few things you should do the night before your wedding. These tips can help you get a good night's rest as well as be prepared for a smooth day tomorrow.

Eat a Healthy Meal

As your last night as a single woman, you may be tempted to eat a large, greasy meal. Perhaps you have a sweet tooth and want to demolish a plate of chocolate brownies. As tempting as this may sound, you need to resist. There are several reasons why you want to eat a healthy meal instead of gorging yourself on unhealthy food the night before:

  • You don't want to be bloated the next day and not able to fit perfectly into your wedding gown.
  • Oftentimes, unhealthy foods can lead to unhappy stomachs. You don't want to spend all night on the toilet, or worse, feel sick on your wedding day.
  • Eating healthy food often promotes good digestion, which can help with a good night's sleep.

Stick with something healthy, and then eat your unhealthy food on the honeymoon.

Go to Bed Early

The last thing you are going to want to feel on your wedding day is exhaustion. Getting a good night's sleep is crucial to make sure you can think clearly and look your best. For this reason, you want to get to bed at an early hour. That way, even if the pre-wedding jitters keep you awake, you have plenty of time to fall asleep to ensure that good night's sleep. Aim for at least seven or eight hours.

Put Your Phone Away

Looking at your phone for long periods of time can keep you from falling asleep. The bright screen keeps your mind going, as does the constant processing your brain does looking at items on your phone. Say goodnight to your fiancé and all of your family and put your phone away for the night. That way, you know nothing will interrupt your hopefully stress-free night.

Get Everything Together

Get everything together the night before the wedding so you aren't feeling frazzled in the morning. You don't want to be running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to grab everything you need. Not only is that a very not fun start to your wedding, you are more likely to forget something when you are throwing everything together last minute.

Write a Love Letter

If you are looking for a way to keep the romantic mood alive, you could write a love letter to your future groom. Giving it to him on your honeymoon can be a romantic way to get the honeymoon started, and it can also be a great way to keep your mind focused on the important things.

Watch a Few Comedies

A couple hours before you go to bed, watch a show or movie that you know will make you laugh. This will release endorphins, which will keep you feeling happy. It can also help the time pass when you are anxiously waiting for bedtime.

The night before your wedding can be one of the longest nights. You are probably very excited and nervous for the next day, which can make the hours drag on. Doing these things can help pass the time, but also help ensure you are feeling well for one of the most important days of your life.
