12 additional wedding preparation tips
1. GET RID OF REFLECTIVE FACTORS
Ask guests to turn off the sound of mobile phones, do not abuse shooting and enjoy the ceremony with you. Explain that you hired a team of professionals to capture important moments. The desire to photograph you is very cute, but the flash, the shutter clicks and the phones in their hands distract both the newlyweds and the guests themselves.
In order not to give this information to each guest personally, ask the moderator to announce this publicly before the ceremony.
2. ADD ORIGINAL CEREMONY
If the exit ceremony is purely symbolic and the seals are already in your passports, ask your parents or mutual friends to do this ceremony. This will add to your holiday uniqueness, comfort and a good portion of pleasant memories.
3. Allocate time for you two
Early rise, traveling to different locations, a lot of people with whom you need to communicate – all this robs you of the main thing – to communicate with each other on your wedding day. Therefore, do not forget to set aside time for just the two of you in order to feel even more that you have become a family.
4. IN CREATING A LIST OF GUESTS, FORGET THE WORD “NEED”
Call all of my mother’s friends, second cousins, whom you have never seen, or a colleague from the neighboring department – and all this because “it is necessary”. Wedding is not the time to get acquainted with distant relatives and not the day when you have to endure people whom you can not stand. You should be surrounded only by your favorite faces, so take care of that.
5. GET UP AS IT IS POSSIBLE BEFORE AND GOING TO SLEEP AS IT IS POSSIBLE LATER
You may be tired by the evening, but imagine how you will regret if you leave your own holiday ahead of time! When will all your beloved people gather in one place to enjoy the birth of your family? Try to go to bed only after all the guests have gone.
6. COMPOSITION OF THE LIST OF PEOPLE WITH WHICH MUST BE PHOTOGRAPHED
So that after receiving the wedding shots do not get upset that the camera did not manage to catch someone. Turmoil on this day will be enough, and you just can not remember who has not had time to take pictures. And the list that you will give to the photographer in advance will relieve you of unnecessary worries.
7. DON’T FORGET TO HAVE
Often the newlyweds do not have time or forget to eat at least something during the holiday. And if, because of excitement, you also miss breakfast, then you risk falling from your feet during the ceremony from fatigue. Therefore, prepare in advance any snack and do not forget to try the dishes that you yourself have chosen for this evening for so long.
8. LEARN ABOUT HELP AND HELP IT
Many brides think that they are able to cope with everything on their own, and then they are ready to howl from the weight of the load that they have shouldered. Feel free to accept help from loved ones and ask about something when you really need it. Preparing for the wedding – not the time for heroism.
9. CREATE A SUPER-DETAILED TIP
In which there will be a wedding day schedule, as well as a list of contacts, telephone numbers of contractors and family members. If a question arises, you can always refer to your magic document to answer it. And even better – use our Bride Organizer, in which you will find a complete set of tables, lists, timings and useful guides!
10. TELL “THANKS” FOR GIFTS
After the wedding, you and your husband can send letters with gratitude, but it will be very ugly if you mix recipients. Therefore, mark who gave what to know to whom and for which to say thanks. And if you do not have time to keep track of it yourself, ask one of the bridesmaids to keep all the information.
11. TRUST YOUR INTUITION
Always pay attention to your feelings when meeting people you want to hire, or when viewing the site – if you feel that this is “not yours,” look for other options. In the end, you pay quite a lot of money for it, so you have to be sure that you made the right choice.
But do not neglect the reviews on the Internet and try not to attend such meetings alone.
12. YOU ARE NOT OBLIGED TO FOLLOW ALL THE RULES
There is a huge number of wedding ceremonies and traditions, and if some of them do not suit you, you are not obliged to adhere to them.
