  1. DO NOT stay up until 4am


Again- not trying to rain on your parade. We’re fun too!!! It’s natural to be a bit stressed. There may be some last-minute things you forgot about, or you may just want to stay up talking to your friends and family if you’re spending the night with them. However, it’s super important to get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can make you have puffy, dark eyes, headaches, and even nausea. No one wants that. Sleep now or forever hold your peace.

  1. DO NOT pig out on junk food


Feel free to enjoy some treats and things but take care of yourself too! Having too much oil or sugar can make you feel all kinds of bloated and blah, and that’s no way to spend your wedding day. Consume in moderation the night before, that way you can fully bust a move the next day without feeling like you have an elephant in your stomach.
