Making Your Wedding Utterly Perfect
After all of that hard work and planning, every bride and groom want their wedding day to be utterly perfect.
But how? Here are a handful of ideas.
Get a good night’s sleep
Your wedding day, while wonderful, is likely to be one of the busiest days of your life! You’ll need an early start for your hair and makeup appointment. You’ll have a late night dancing with all of your loved ones. And in the middle you’ll be on your feet, greeting guests and potentially travelling between venues. This isn’t even mentioning that your dress might be heavy and bulky, and you might be wearing high heels. As a result of all this, it is so important to get a proper night’s sleep before. However tempted you might be, no drinking champagne with your bridesmaids until 3 am the night before! Get a good seven to eight hours and you’ll be so glad you did when you can enjoy your day properly.
Be brutal with your guest list
Don’t let your wedding day become more about family politics than it is about the love between you and your partner. Be brutal with your guest list. It is your day, and you should decide who is and isn’t there to celebrate with you. One such way to keep everyone happy is to invite guests for just a portion of the day. They could just join for the service, or just for the reception. This stops overcrowding, keeps rivals apart and will save you money too. It costs far less to feed people once than twice.
Hire a reputable photographer
Your wedding day will pass by in a flash and you’ll just want to do it all again! The best way to do this is by enjoying the photographs taken during the day. This is hiring a reputable photographer is one of the most important ways to have a perfect wedding. Meet them in advance if possible, so you know if you click and have the same ideas. Knowing you can trust the person you’ve put in charge of taking pictures will mean you can relax and get on with your lovely day without worry. When it comes to deciding who to hire, go on good quality pictures and companies who make their reviews easy to see. Bluephoto wedding photographers are one company who display their client reviews on their homepage.
Grab a few moments alone with the groom
Even though it’s a day for the bride and groom, you might find you barely see them unless you make a conscious effort to! Rather than trying to grab a moment when you’re being pulled this way and that by guests, factor it into your day plans. When you’re planning what will happen at different times, add in 30 minutes of alone time. You could just for a walk near your venue and find a comfortable (and clean!) place to sit. Go alone, or ask your photographer to follow from a distance for some special, candid shots.
