The night before:

  1. Choose your outfit to avoid last minute cramming. Wear something that reflects your personality; chances are, you'll be comfortable in it. Are you girly? Opt for a tank top, printed skirt, and embellished sandals. Laid-back? A romper with funky skimmers will look absolutely fab on you. Still undecided? Your best bet is a dressy top with jeans or shorts, and comfy yet stylish shoes.
  2. Prepare your bag in advance so you won't forget anything. Place your kikay kit (plus compact mirror), tissue, band-aid (for blisters!), emergency feminine pad, and wallet inside, so the only thing you'll need to add on the day itself is your cell phone.
  3. Should you need to wax or tweeze body hair, do it already to avoid unwanted redness on the day itself! If you're a shaver, you may do it on the big day.
  4. Check your nails. Are they trimmed and well-kept? If you're thinking of painting them, better do it already, instead of waiting for them to dry right before the date. Remember: dark colors look good on short nails, while light colors may be used on longer nails.
  5. Get a good night's sleep. Beauty rest is essential before the Big Day.
