Our best tips to enjoy your wedding!
Summer is coming and many weddings will be organized! Many brides are stressed when they tell us about their marriage. Several reasons are mentioned: the dress, the organization, the seating plan… As wedding specialists, our team has gathered to give you the best tips to enjoy your wedding!
Indeed, through our personal experiences and the many returns from our brides, we know how stressful a marriage can become for a bride. So, here are our tips to enjoy the day!
1/REPARE YOUR OUTFIT AND PERSONAL BELONGINGS ONE WEEK BEFORE THE D-DAY
For this first advice, it is a question of getting organized as well as possible! In addition to all the preparations around the ceremony, you must free yourself from this weight: extra flat shoes to avoid having pain in your feet all day, your jewelry, your makeup (that we do not try the day before !) etc.
Otherwise, you will need warmer clothes and an umbrella in case of bad weather, tissues for emotional moments, a pharmacy kit and a make-up kit for small attentions. By preparing this in advance, we promise you’ll be less stressed on D-Day!
2/ REST THE NIGHT BEFORE
Before your wedding, many of you will run between the last appointments, settle the last details. We advise you to be as methodical as possible and plan a relaxing day before your wedding!
Have fun with your friends and family on this last day of preparations. It is important to have your loved ones at your side to be able to change your mind or to send someone to do a task for you. And don’t stay up too late. The goal is clear: be on top for the next day!
3/ BE SURROUNDED FOR THE ORGANIZATION…
Make sure you have people at your side to help you! Even if you want to have everything under control, it’s important to trust your family and friends to do tasks that can take longer than you think. If you don’t have a wedding planner (we advise you Mélanie of Foudamour!), delegate the tasks!
Don’t leave the party and don’t be worry about solving the little troubles, your friends will help you! Besides, you can’t refuse anything to a bride-to-be.
4/ … ACCORDING TO A PRECISE PLANNING
Why make a schedule when you know exactly what should happen at that time? The answer is simple: warn your friends and your suppliers about your wedding! Hop, less stress!
A very detailed planning will allow the actors of your wedding to know your expectations and their roles. You will avoid them asking you questions every hour and you will enjoy your wedding!
Otherwise, make sure that these suppliers are paid before your wedding.
5/ TAKE TIME WITH YOUR BELOVED
This day will pass very quickly. It is important to take a break and share about this wonderful day!
Several occasions will present to you (on the way to your wedding venue, before all guests are present, at the end of the meal or cocktail etc.). It is necessary to take time for you and exchange a moment between lovers, quite simply!
Among these tips, we also suggest you to share some time together during the last week, between all the preparations. What could be better than a hug to relieve the stress that rises?
6/ BE PRECISE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
The photos reflect your wedding and capture the best moments of your ceremony. The photographer must know what is most important to you. Indeed, you can choose to take family, portraits, scenery photos etc.. The best thing is to talk directly with the photographer to get an agreement!
Moreover, we assure you that the professionals of photography will give you advice and will have relevant remarks via their experiences !
7/ EAT AND DRINK
A lot of brides don’t take the time to eat and drink, wrongly! Enjoy your meal, your appetizers and other small snacks. You have ordered pretty things to please your guests, enjoy them too!
It is also important not to forget to drink water, especially during hot periods. Your body is being put to the test on this magical day, you will (surely, but we don’t wish it) run around, so be on top and drink water!
We also advise you to eliminate alcohol abuse during the preparation week. Be in top form for the big day, where you can drink in moderation!
8/ MOST IMPORTANT: HAVE FUN AND ENJOY YOUR WEDDING!
Finally, the most important thing is to enjoy this moment! Your friends, your family, everyone gathered to see you and celebrate this day with you! So, it is very important to share these unforgettable moments with your loved ones, and have fun!
Although these tips are not very original, it is always good to really become aware of them to be able to enjoy your union! All these methods are good for taking some of the stress out of your life and enjoy your wedding the way it should be!
