I have been loving adding to the bridal section of my blog recently. We have set a date and planning is in full swing. I keep getting so many ideas for bridal blog posts. Now I’m engaged so many people keep sharing stories of their own wedding experiences to me. I thought I’d share some of the in a post to help other bride to be’s.
Now I’m getting married its such a big step into the future. I need to make sure I take it all in. I didn’t realise how much I would contemplate the rest of my life until I said ‘YES’ and he put a ring on it!
Everyone keeps saying that I need to plan everything part of the day with thought. Right from waking up and getting my hair and make up done right to the final dance. There is going to be so much going on, and its weird to think that I’ll be centre of attention and all eyes are going to be on me for the entire day. This is something I’m not very confident with! I want to be able to have a stress free wedding day and go with the flow seeing all my planning come alive!
Here are a few of the little things that I’ve been told that you’re most likely to get asked or spoken to you about on your wedding day:
“Quick get in the photo.”
‘Everyone will want to take pictures with the bride’. Me and my girls are making a photo booth for my wedding instead of hiring one. I’ll most definitely be having my pictures taken with all of the different props we end up making! When the evening comes around and the party officially begins, anyone with a phone will have it out ready to take a photo. At this point I’ve been told to make sure its known if you want a social media ban at your wedding. Photos could be on Instagram that you wanted to post first!. I think we are going to also have a hashtag for social media. This will ensure that we don’t miss any pictures of the day from our guests.
“Saw this and thought of you.”
If you are in the middle of planning your wedding gift list – HELP ME!!! What do you ask for?. What is considered as too much or not enough with these things? I think ill constantly be told the stories around each wedding gift and I cant wait to hear them! You even have to have a table for all your cards and wedding gifts. I want to have one of those free-standing post boxes for cards as they look so cool! I think that it will be lovely to have people approach us at the wedding and want us to open our gifts straightaway although this might be awkward as I can imagine some of our friends getting us joke presents!
“Actually spend some of the day with your husband”
At our wedding venue we have a separate room where the bride and groom can get out the way and chat about the day. I’m going to take advantage of this. So many people have told me to remember to see your husband at the wedding too! There will be so many people who want to come and talk to you, and sometimes you forget where you are and what is happening. I hope we have plenty of time to spend together as well as socialising with everyone else.
Getting married doesn’t happen every day! Now I know a bit more about what’s to come. I guess what will be will be. I need to plan at my own pace so everything is just how I want it.
What are your own wedding experiences? – let me know any tips or advice to get me through my wedding day!
Lots of Love
