This is your day! So start it off right! If your love to do yoga, have all your girls come a little earlier and get your namaste on before everything begins!

5. Stay on time.

I can never say this enough, staying on time means providing ample time for getting ready! I can’t tell you how many times hair and makeup has gone longer than expected and pushes back the timeline. Make sure you add 30 min to the time you think it’s going to take and you should be good!
