No matter how much time you have to plan, prepare and primp for your big day, it seems that there are always last minute details and forgotten items to be addressed.  The best advice I can give is to allow more time than you think you’ll need, follow a reasonable timeline and continually update your to-do lists.  Included in this section are a wedding timeline, a bar/bat mitzvah timeline and a birthday party timeline. These will help guide you.  Feel free to modify to suit your occasion, amount of time you have and the steps you still need to take to get you successfully to your celebration.

Remember, to minimize the stress you need to be organized, pay attention to detail, stay calm, keep lists and follow the timeline/calendar.  Use your reminder app to keep you on track.  Take advantage of all the tools you can get your hands on.  This is a good time to eat healthy, join a gym or take a yoga class.
