So it’s your wedding day, and you’ve gone through your fancy pants wedding checklist, and you’re feeling good, hair, makeup, something blue, Aunt Flossy’s wheelchair space, and oh no! S%$T, I’ve forgotten to…
- BRUSH YOUR TEETH. No groom wants to kiss his bride when she hasn’t brushed her teeth all day!
- PROOF READ your dad’s speech! Seriously the number of weddings I’ve done where the father’s speech is as awkward as watching Donald Trump addressing the public is cringe worthy. Ask your mum, or someone close to PLEASE read over dad’s speech, and politely suggest that he may want to amend it.
- TO STOP. This is the best one yet. Being a married person myself, I remember the best advice given to me for my wedding day, it was to simply stop and stand at the back of the room, or around a corner, anywhere where you and your beloved can have a private moment and look… Look at the venue, your loved ones, the room decor, your flowers the whole lot. The day flies by so quickly, and this is a chance to stop and reflect, and look at what you have created, by this union.
- NOT TO BE STRESSED. So don’t stress yourself out.. so what the flowers are starting to wilt, the best man is snogging aunt Flossy, the fairy lights aren’t strung in the direction you asked, someone has smeared your welcome sign blackboard. Really is this that important?? Maybe just ask yourself “Is this worth it”? Life is way too important to be taken seriously, and this party is for you to enjoy.
- STAY IN THE MOMENT. So you’ve just spent over $30 k on this day… Don’t spend it on social media, posting photos of you and your hubby.. try to stay in the moment as it’s such a beautiful place to be in. Social media can wait, and really, who else needs to see you other than all the people you love that you’ve invited to celebrate this day with you.
