TIPS FOR THE BRIDE
While planning your wedding, Pinterest will be your new best friend!
Give each of your bridesmaids something to do on the morning of your wedding like making breakfast, creating a wedding day playlist or signing off on items like the bouquets. This saves the Maid of Honour doing it all and the other Bridesmaids being bored. It can be a long time getting ready so share the load.
Trial your spray tan! I say this time and time again. You don’t want it to wash off patchy if you don’t follow the instructions and you don’t want to be an Oompa Loompa either. Find the right tan for you.
Don’t exercise in the last 12 days leading up to your wedding. Firstly, you don’t want to lose any more weight and not fit into your dress. Secondly, you don’t want to scratch or bruise yourself while walking the dog.
TIPS FOR THE GROOM
Pick your Best Man wisely. You want someone who means a lot to you, respects your wishes and limitations while planning your bucks and won’t embarrass you too much during his Best Man speech.
Get your hair cut between 3-5 days before the day.
This will give the style time to settle and give you time to get used to the length again.
If having a professional clean shave, save it for the day of the wedding if there is enough time. Don’t forget to book in with your barber to ensure you don’t miss out or run behind.
Always have a handkerchief in your inner jacket pocket in case your bride starts to cry. It is an emotional day and that chivalry is just a little reminder of why she is marrying you.
TIPS FOR THE HAPPY COUPLE
Remember that this is both your day. Do what makes you happy and no one else. You can’t please everyone.
Compromising is key when planning a wedding. If you decide on a band over a DJ at the bride’s request, let the groom pick the car that you arrive and depart in.
If something doesn’t go to plan, let it go. Some things can be resolved in short periods of time and others can’t, so don’t let it ruin your day.
Enjoy your day. Your wedding shouldn’t make you feel stressed or anxious. You should feel excited with a touch of nervousness to start and then happiness will erupt as soon as you both say “I do”.
