How to make sure you enjoy your wedding day.
There always seems like there’s a lot of pressure on the bride and groom on their wedding day. There’s lots to organise and execute and keeping a smile on your face and a cool head is no easy task. So, we’ve created this list of tips to help you stay cool, calm, collected and enjoy your special day!
Get plenty of sleep.
Make sure you get to bed at a decent hour the night before. You want to wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Eat a full breakfast.
A breakfast that’s high in protein and complex carbs will take a while to break down in your body. This means you’ll have plenty of energy throughout the day without getting hungry and tired.
Don’t rush yourself.
Allow plenty of time to get ready so you can relax and have a good time. No one wants to be in a panic or rushing to get you down the aisle.
Wear a dress shirt for hair and makeup.
It’s so much easier to wear a buttoned shirt while you’re having your hair and makeup done. When you’re finished, all you have to do is unbutton and not worry about pulling a t-shirt over all the hard work.
Make lists, ahead of time.
Write down everything you need to do on the morning of the wedding. This way, your bridesmaids and groomsmen can ensure you’ve prepared everything you need, and nothing is forgotten. It’s a great way to relieve stress.
No one wants to kill the mood, but it’s wise to discuss expectations for behaviour with your groomsmen. Things can get pretty crazy, so it can’t hurt to have a plan.
Break in your shoes.
If you’ve bought new shoes for the big day, be sure to break them in ahead of time. There’s nothing worse than plastering a smile on your face while feeling sore with every step you take.
Perfume and Cologne.
A little goes a long way. It’s all too easy to have one spray too many, and it can make you feel nauseous and even attract bugs.
It may be a little pricey but having a coordinator with you will let you enjoy your day and keep the drama at bay.
Take some selfies!
You’re going to have plenty of nice and stylised professional shots fromT-ONE IMAGE Melbourne wedding photography and video studio throughout the day, so why not take a few selfies and create a fun contrast between these and the professional ones.
Unless you’re taking a selfie, there’s nothing more important than your wedding.
Some light stretching will release any physical tension built up throughout the day. It’s important to get your blood flowing so you can feel comfortable and at your best.
Say thank you.
A lot goes into your big day, and lots of it comes from other people too! It’ll feel good to give a thank you speech with your spouse and give everyone the credit and appreciation they deserve.
Beyond your family and immediate wedding party, the room is full of all your friends! Make sure you don’t miss out on a photo opportunity with anyone.
Be careful with alcohol.
It’s a day you’ll want to remember for the rest of your life, so much sure that’s possible and don’t drink too much. A good tip is to drink a full glass of water between each alcohol drink.
Remember what the day is about.
Amid all the excitement and celebration, it’s easy to lose sight of what is really going on. Take a moment to look over the person you’re pledging your life to and reflect on the incredible journey that awaits.
