Everyone can forget a couple of little, yet important to-do list things for the wedding. Even if you are forgetting them or just putting them off on purpose, there are a few things you want to avoid doing, if possible, when it comes closer to the wedding. Besides the stress that waiting till last minute can cause, there are also a couple of other things we want to help you avoid. To lighten that stress load for you, here are a few things that you should avoid doing two weeks prior to the wedding.

1. DIY Projects: If you are creating any of your own decorations for your wedding, don’t wait till the last minute! Each craft can demand a different amount of time whether it is five minutes, or three hours each. Since everything has its own time-consuming factor, you want to make sure that you are doing your DIY pieces at least two months before the wedding. By giving yourself this time, you can also account for something possibly not go the way you thought it would or in the off chance something gets messed up you can recreate it. Another benefit of doing them earlier is that you can put the new decor with all your other pieces for the wedding to ensure you are getting the look you want for your big day. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time so there are no tears the week of the wedding from a simple craft.

2. Spa Treatments and Facials: This is something that you seriously want to ensure is done more than two weeks before the wedding. The reason for this is when you do facials or any spa treatments, it brings toxins in your skin to the surface so it may cause a breakout. If you do choose to do this closer to the wedding, just be aware of this and try not to freak out if you do start to break out, it won’t help the situation! Along with that, you also don’t know how your skin may react to certain chemicals in the treatments. You may think that your skin has no problems with any mineral, but to be on the safe side, make sure to plan your spa trip at least a month out from the wedding. We don’t want any bride stressed or upset because they do not feel comfortable in their own skin. We want you to feel beautiful and rock your big day.

3. Waiting to Write Personal Vows: When choosing to write your own vows for your wedding, it is best if you give yourself and ample amount of time as this can sometimes be harder for some to write. Because this can be a big part of your ceremony, you want to make sure that you are getting all of your words perfect and that might take some time to do. It is best to give yourself several months to create those perfect vows. By giving yourself a ample time you are able to brainstorm, write a drafts, have someone read over them, revise them, and then begin to practice. You want to use the two weeks before your wedding to practice your personal vows to ensure that you are comfortable and confident on your wedding day when you are confessing your love for that person you love.
