Put some­one you trust in charge of the emer­gency kit—putting it togeth­er and get­ting it to your get­ting ready space and then your cer­e­mo­ny and recep­tion venues.

Don’t for­get to pass off the rings to the Best Man before the start of the cer­e­mo­ny.

Don’t drink heav­i­ly the night before or the day of the cer­e­mo­ny. You won’t look or feel your best. A few drinks the night before and a drink or two before the cer­e­mo­ny to calm your nerves is plen­ty. After the cer­e­mo­ny and after you greet all your guests, all bets are off and you can drink all you want.
