Just a few days away from saying “I Do” in paradise? We know there’s a lot of excitement on your mind… don’t fret, we’re here to help!

10 Must-Dos the Week Before The Wedding

Our friends at BRIDES shared an amazing list of “50 Things All Brides Should Do the Week of Their Wedding,” and we just had to share our favorites.

Here are our top 10 from BRIDES’ list of 50…

1) Read Your Vows Out Loud
Even if you’ve silently read the words over and over again, be sure to read your vows out loud to yourself a handful of times. Practice reading it with a steady and slow pace until you feel confident and calm.

2) Say Hello to Your In-Laws
Touch base with your (almost) mother-in-law and father-in-law, and your immediate family as well, and see if they need anything or have any last-minute questions. Once you chat with them, ask them to act as liaisons to the other guests or family members who have questions.

3) Break In Your Shoes
Make sure you spend some quality time in your wedding shoes so that you break them in before you find yourself standing in them for 8-hours straight. Put them on for 30 minutes a day and break them in with a walk around your house or a quick dance to your favorite song.

4) Sit Down With Your Partner
Spend a little quality time together, going over your love story from start until now. Remind each other how much you love each other and how excited you both are for a future together.

5) Get Rehearsed
Confirm all the details of your wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Make sure the wedding party knows where to be and when.

6) Enjoy Your Bridesmaids
If your bridesmaids traveled in for your wedding, carve out some time to hang out and do some relaxing pre-wedding together.

7) Decide Where You Want Your First Look to Be
Whether you have a special spot in mind or want to check in with the photographer beforehand, pick out the spot where you want to see each other for the first time ahead of the wedding.

8) Double Check Your Master To-Do List
Run through your master to-do list one final time and see if there’s anything you forgot to do or saved for the very last-minute. If you find there are a lot of tasks left, delegate them out to trusty bridesmaids or family members.

9) Write the Groom a Love Letter
Jot down a couple of words and feelings for your soon-to-be hubby to read on the morning of the wedding. It will help get him excited and emotional for the day ahead of both of you.

10) Take a Deep Breath
Take a lot of these. They are unlimited. They are free. They are more than necessary. Please don’t forget that.

“The moment I was standing in the walkway that leads to the Front Lawn for our ceremony…” Kristina recalls, thinking of her favorite memory. “The butterflies started in my stomach when I saw my husband standing at the end of the alter waiting for me to walk down. I will never forget how handsome he looked and how beautiful the ceremony looked.”

Be it an intimate ceremony of 50 or a grand affair for 500, weddings and celebrations at The Breakers are marked by their striking settings, world-class service and thoughtful, indulgent details.

Those details also include our resort’s stunning architecture. Last month, we shared a look inside our incredible outdoor spaces—today, peek inside our breathtaking ballrooms….
