Random Wedding Tips
Planning a wedding is stressful with so many things to remember. It’s easy to forget some of the little touches. Here are some sneaky tips in no particular order to help you on your way!
- Fold up shoes! For when your gorgeous heels start to kill your feet. Nothing brings an end to a night faster than painful shoes. Dance the night away in comfort with a spare pair of shoes.
- Snacks for kids. If you’re taking a child to a wedding (your own or someone else’s) the last thing you want is whining. If you take a small cereal bar to keep your child going.
- Steal a few minutes. After the speeches, before the evening reception officially starts, have twenty minutes alone with your new husband. Chat about what’s been going on during your day but just have a few minutes to calm down and have a breather.
- Wear something that doesn’t need to go over your head while you’re having your hair and make up done. A dressing gown, or a shirt which will unbutton and not go over your head will prevent your makeup from smudging and will keep your hair looking perfect.
- Take off the sticker! If you’ve bought some fabulous new shoes for your wedding, remember to take off the labels! That’s the kind of thing I’d forget.
- Remember a loo basket. It’s a really nice touch and you might find it useful in an emergency. Party feet blister plasters (which personally I swear by), spare tights, a comb, a few hair pins, some deodorant and anything else you can think of will make things a lot easier for you and your guests.
- A groom suggested to me, checking your watch. To help you remember your day, keep looking at a clock when you have sad your vows and when you drive off in the car. Check the time the wedding breakfast starts and the speeches are made. As all of us with jobs know, clock watching makes the day go slower and this is the one day we want to go slower!
- Have a good breakfast. If you’re anything like me, you won’t want to eat but putting something in your stomach will help you relax and feel full of energy for your day.
- Before you walk into the ceremony, take a few moments to breathe and calm down. Compose yourself so that you’re looking beautiful and bridal as you walk down the aisle.
- Enjoy your nerves. You will never be this excited or nervous again, so just enjoy it!
