Ask any bride or groom, they’ll agree that their wedding day went by in a flash! Between getting ready, taking photos and greeting all your guests - time goes so quickly and if you’re not careful, you can miss out on fully enjoying the big day yourself.
After months of hard work and organising, you deserve to cherish every special moment and appreciate all the beautiful details (that you so perfectly planned!) Here are our top tips to help you and your fiancé make the most of your wedding day.
PRIORITISE AND REMEMBER, YOU CAN SAY NO
Time is precious, so make sure every moment on your big day counts. That means only prioritising things that are important to you and your fiancé. Bouquet throwing or cake cutting not your thing? Then don’t worry about it! What makes weddings so special is their uniqueness and every part should reflect you and fiancés personality - so don’t feel pressured to jam pack your day with traditions that you don’t value.
THE WEEK OF THE WEDDING, TAKE IT EASY
In the lead up to your wedding, there is often lots of preparation and celebratory events. To avoid burn-out and being exhausted on the big day, make sure most of the planning is sorted well ahead of time. This includes little things like picking up your dress, picking bridesmaid jewellery and organising wedding favours. Also don’t schedule any big pre-wedding events like bachelorette/bachelor parties too close to the day - you need plenty of rest to recover from these! Remember, the week of your wedding should set the tone for the day - easy and relaxing.
REMEMBER TO EAT!
It’s a long and busy day, so make sure you keep energy levels up by eating a decent meal before the wedding starts. The last thing you want is a growling stomach! Also make time to sit and enjoy the food served at your wedding - you’ll be surprised to hear many brides and grooms hardly try their meals!
TAKE A MOMENT TO YOURSELVES
Whether your guest list is 200 or 20, you’ll be so busy socialising throughout the day that it can be hard to get alone time with your new spouse. Take a moment to step away just the two of you; look around and soak it all in. You’ll really appreciate this private time together to admire the amazing wedding you’ve planned and the special lifelong commitment you’ve just made.
MOST OF ALL - DON'T STRESS THE SMALL STUFF
Every couple wants their wedding to be perfect, but don’t let this consume your day. Remember to breathe and remind yourself what is most important - celebrating your love with friends and family. Trust us, none of your guests will notice if something doesn’t happen exactly as planned.
HIRE AN EXPERIENCED TEAM
A lot of work goes into a great wedding and coordinating everything yourself can be stressful. Instead of worrying on the day about flowers or table set-up, consider hiring a wedding planner or on-day coordinator. They will be there to cover all logistics for you and help ease any stress so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your wedding.
We offer a range of wedding planning and styling services; from full planning, to styling and on-day coordination. No wedding or couple are the same, therefore all our services are designed to be customized and tailored to suit your needs.
