Are you – Planning a wedding? Helping your best-friend organise their wedding? Wanting to know things for your ideal future wedding? Or do you just love everything about weddings? Whatever the reason, you’re here now and these tips will not disappoint you!
HAVE A SECOND SHIRT ON HAND FOR THE GROOM
The reality is that your groom is inevitably going to get sweaty during the most special day of your lives, so make sure you have a backup shirt just in case!
FLOWERS TO YOUR WAIST
By this, we basically mean hold your flowers at the level of your lower stomach/bladder.
This simple act will give you a more natural posture ensuring you don’t hunch, and you don’t take any attention away from your beautiful gown.
INVESTIGATE THE GROOM’S SHOES
Guys might (will) forget to check for tags… so make sure you check; you don’t want to notice ugly stickers or tags halfway through walking down the aisle.
Also, in some cases the groom’s buddies like to be a bit silly and write things like ‘Help Me’ or ‘Save Me’ on the sole of his shoes.
Looking back, this might be funny, but if you don’t want to worry about it, check!
HAVE A SHOT, NOT A BOTTLE
Keep in mind, you only want to calm your nerves, not be going to the toilet every five minutes or fall over during an important moment.
STAIN REMOVER, STAIN REMOVER, STAIN REMOVER!
If you are afraid of getting red lippy or red wine on your dress, the best thing you can do is keep a mini stain remover on hand! Considering how much money and time we spend on finding the perfect dress you definitely want to avoid accidents!
STUFF YOUR BOUQUET
As we’ve discussed recently, most wedding dresses unfortunately don’t have pockets. You don’t want to be carrying a box of tissues down the aisle, so hiding a couple necessities in your bouquet is a go to!
If that doesn’t work for you perhaps get your bridesmaids to hold some gloss or tissues so they can pass it to you while you stand at the altar.
WEAR IN YOUR SHOES
You’re most likely going to wear your new bridal or groom’s shoes for the first time, right?
Brand new shoes are always so sleek and shiny, and barely have any grip. Wouldn’t it be horrible if you slipped on your special day?
Therefore, ensure the soles of your shoes are a little worn in before walking anywhere on the big day! The best way to start this process is to scrape your shoes on some gravel beforehand.
DON’T FORGET SNACKS
Wedding photos take a really looooonggggggggggg time.
We’re not kidding. Your photographer will have you in so many different locations and positions with a heap of different family members and guests, so we suggest to keep a snack on hand in case you get a bit peckish!
Trust us, it will make the whole process a lot more enjoyable. It will be better than constantly thinking about the 3-course meal you’re so close to getting!
