In fact, you should take a personal initiative of reminding your party members and your fiancé to do the same.
4) Dress to Impress:
Since most people buy their perfect wedding dresses just within the first month of engagement, they never get to try them on again until the wedding day.

Therefore, ensure that you try the dress to see whether there is need for any alterations a day or two before the wedding.
3) Type of rings:
After ensuring that you are good to go walk down the aisle and it is everything-check, you should think about the wedding rings. Just to be sure confirm that the right types of rings are intact, for the last time, as planned before you check out.

This is your special day, and besides walking around and appreciating your guests during the wedding day you can as well send them thank you handwritten notes a few weeks after the wedding.
1) In the Zone:
It’s very easy to get lost in the mayhem and forget enjoying your special day. Stop doing the planning even on the wedding day!
