The year-long madness of planning your wedding is finally drawing to a close? Well, its about time! We are sure that you must have spent every waking minute of the past few weeks stressing about everything from the food to the guest's list and running from one dress fitting to another - only to ensure that your wedding is as seamless as it can be!
But, honey now that only one week remains - we say its time for you to take the back seat and take care of yourself and leave everything else for the groom and your family members to handle (we insist)
Check out this ridiculously crafty, witty, over-the-top ironical and funny (also informative and important, we promise, we sincerely do) to-do list for the bride to follow a week before the wedding day.
Test Drive Your Bridal Look
Despite all, remember to try on your bridal out along with your bridal jewellery, bridal footwear, wedding accessories, hair accessories if you plan on carrying some to see if your bridal look is what you always wanted.
P.S. just a suggestion, try using the restroom while you are all dressed up (it's better to be prepared than sorry, right?)

Brand new shoes often give shoe bites and are uncomfortable when you wear them for the first time. Therefore, strut around the house in your heels a week before your wedding just to be double sure that your chosen type of heels is not just gorgeous but comfortable too.
New Home + New Wardrobe = More Shopping & a Lot More Packing
You'll be moving into a new home, so obviously you'll have plenty to pack before the wedding shenanigans hit in full force. So start early, gather your things, prioritise what you want and what you can pass on. You'll feel much relaxed once you have your packing out of the way.

Don't even think about skipping this one. There is no escaping a long and tedious mani-pedi session.
And, for that cherry on the top - take your bridesmaids along(once they are done planning your bachelorette) with you or your mother-in-law (and win some brownie points by spending some time on the much-need Saas-Bahu bonding session). You can also book a nail art session to add some life and colour to your freshly manicured nails.
