The player wristband does not need to be worn until the day of the After Party. This wristband is your access to the afterparty, so you will not be allowed in without one. However, this wristband also acts as a food voucher for lunch/dinner at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel prior to the event. While you do not need to be wearing it to get your meals, you will need it on your person to show to hotel staff.

If you do wear the wristband, keep it somewhat loose so that you can move it or slide it off so that it doesn't get in your way while playing during the event.
