Eat enough protein

When headed to the caterers, go on a full stomach

You don’t want to add unnecessary items and expenses to the menu just because you are hungry right in that moment. Remember to plan, and prepare.

Set aside time for you and your future husband

Having alone time with your significant other pre wedding is important. The two of you should consider having regular date nights throughout the crazy wedding planning process. Just be sure that when you are taking advantage of your alone time that you keep the wedding talk to a minimum.
