12 Tips To Ensure Your Wedding Day is Better.

 

  1. Eat breakfast! Not just a yogurt, but a breakfast that is high in protein and complex carbs.

 

Now I know that complex carbs aren’t part of the “wedding diet” but it isn’t going to make a difference on how your dress fits that day.

For those that don’t know this, outside of being a wedding photographer, I’m also a Registered Nurse (RN) so its inherent in my nature to make sure your ok. It’s going to be a long day with lots of stuff going on and easy to forget to eat. Some couples barely have an opportunity to taste their dinner with all the activities. A hearty breakfast may be the only thing to get you through the day. Carbs and Proteins take a while to break down in your body and keep you going so think of them as and extended wedding day fuel source.

 

  1. Allow yourself plenty of time to get ready.

 

No bride likes to be rushed on her wedding day. There is enough stress going on as is. You want to be able to relax, drink a mimosa and have a good time and share a few laughs with your bridesmaids all while being pampered.

  1. Plan your “Getting Ready” attire accordingly

 

When getting hair and makeup done, consider wearing a robe, blouse, or dress shirt instead of a tank-top or something that has to be pulled over your fresh makeup and hair. These types of shirts are easily unbuttoned without doing any damage to hair and makeup.

 

  1. Grooms, make a list of all the things you need to do before Game Time!

 

Let’s be honest, the bride has every detail mapped out and bridesmaids are great at helping a bride remember everything that she needs. Grooms just kind of go with the flow and Groomsmen are really helpful in remembering to bring the beer, but less likely to make sure you have all the bases covered. Don’t be that groom forgot that really important thing.

 

  1. If you bought new shoes for the big day, the big day is probably not the best day to break in your new shoes.

 

 “I love it when my feet hurt” said no bride ever. Sore and painful feet can make you cranky. Nobody likes a cranky bride. Even if its just around the house a few times, walk around in the new shoes to stretch them out a bit. Your feet will thank you 10 hours later on the wedding day.
