Avoid leaving some things undone and entering into panic mode on the morning of your wedding.

  • Published:

Somehow that random guy you accidentally bumped into a year ago is about to be your husband.

You can’t even believe you have come this far, right?

Meeting someone, sharing moments, opening up your heart and letting them into your worst fears; letting them know your biggest worries and loving each other despite the inherent flaws and imperfections.

It’s what makes love all the more enchanting, and that's why you’re about to unlock a new level of that sensational feeling when you walk down the aisle with the love of your life soon.

The few days before a wedding have proven to be full of activities – loads of undone stuff and several deadlines to meet.
