Your wedding day should be full of joy, excitement, and unforgettable moments, but sometimes things can get out of hand when you are not expecting the unexpected.
Being hungover the day of your wedding
Who wants to feel and even look terrible the day of their own wedding? I had a destination wedding in Miami, FL. and all of my guests were in party mode prior to the wedding day.
The night before the wedding they invited me and my fiancé to go out and party. Well it’s good that we didn’t accept the invitation and took it easy since they partied pretty wild until 5am!
If you have a rehearsal dinner the night before or go clubbing, be careful with the amount of alcohol you ingest, you only get married once (hopefully) and I bet you want to look and feel your best!
Stressing over the smallest details
On your wedding day, the last thing you want to have is stress. Needless to say, its highly recommended to hire a wedding planner for this reason so they can take care of even the smallest details so you can just enjoy your day the way you should.
The job of a planner is to try to resolve the problem without you knowing, and if you do find out about it, it would be months after the wedding.
If you opt to not have a wedding planner then you need to prepare in advance and know that not everything would go as planned the day of the wedding. Just try to relax and focus on the big picture.
Not hiring a videographer
Many people think that a photographer is enough, and it may be for some people, but if you really want a videographer then sacrifice something else and hire one!
You'll be glad you had one. Years down the road you will see yourself, and remember more details about your special day than if you just look at pictures.
Maybe you can watch it with your children in the future which would be a very special treat.
Not bringing an extra pair of shoes
Beautiful shoes are awesome to complement a bride's entire look as well as being great for the pictures!
There are brides that are used to heels but remember that you are going to be in those shoes for long periods of time, (8+ hours).
If you want to dance the night away I suggest changing into flip flops or more comfy shoes so you can relax without the pain. You can even customize them!
