1. Enjoy Your Wedding Day

1. Enjoy Your Wedding Day

I know that it seems like a really dumb thing to remind you to do on your own wedding day, right? The reason we always tell our brides to enjoy their wedding day is because it literally “flies by” on the day of your wedding. Remind yourself that you prepared for the day to the best of your abilities and on that beautiful day that you say “I Do” don’t let anything keep you from enjoying it!

3. Eat a Snack Before You Put Your Dress On

3. Eat a Snack Before You Put Your Dress On

We don’t want any fainting around here! Sometimes weddings get so busy that couples don’t even have time to eat their own dinner, so it’s important to carry and have a snack ahead of time just in case you don’t have time to eat throughout the day. You’ll probably be hungry after the wedding is all over too. You can check with the caterer to pack you an extra meal for later so you have something to take back with you to the hotel room.

4. Don’t Worry About Time

Really! I’ll keep us on schedule as much as possible, but your job is to enjoy and have a blast during your wedding day. If that means things run a little late because you’re having a great time, then so be it! We’re gonna be there as long as you are so there is no need to stress about timing.

5. Drink Plenty of Water

You’re going to be busy and on your feet all day; you don’t want to be dehydrated. Make sure that you try and carry around a water bottle or two in order to stay hydrated.

6. Review Your Dress Bustle

6. Review Your Dress Bustle

Believe it or not this is one of the biggest “time-sucks” I’ve ever seen at weddings! It’s probably been awhile since you picked up your dress and tried out the bustle. Some dress shops give instructions for the bustle and some don’t. Figuring out a bustle on the day of a wedding can take up to 30 minutes, so try it out beforehand and make sure you know how it works and that a bridesmaid or family member does too.

7. Hold Hands During Your Ceremony

7. Hold Hands During Your Ceremony

This is probably a weird tip right? Sometimes people forget to remind you to focus on the little things, but it looks super awkward during your ceremony photos if you are standing 5 feet apart and not touching somehow. We encourage (and look for) the little giggles, small glances, and romance during the ceremony. Holding hands make pictures look much more intimate.

8. Keep the Bouquets in Water

Try to keep your flowers in water for as long as possible. If you do photos beforehand, take them, and then put them back into the water before the ceremony. Nothing kills bouquets faster than holding them for ages before the ceremony and walking down the aisle with wilted flowers.

9. How to Cut the Cake

9. How to Cut the Cake

If the caterers or the baker don’t tell you how to cut the cake before you dive into it, just ask me! I’ve seen (and cut) dozens of wedding cakes and I can show you quickly before the moment how to do it correctly.

10. Take Your Time

All too often couples rush through the little details that we love to see: zipping up the dress, walking down the aisle, cutting the cake, etc. The faster you go, the less opportunities we have to take the perfect shot. Slow down and enjoy all the precious moments of your big day.
