Wedding Day Advice from this Community

So excited to share these incredibly sweet and helpful tips that so many of you shared this week…

Some advice overlapped, so I combined some. Thank you again to everyone who took the time to share your experiences. This was so helpful, I am going to read over this post a few times leading up to my wedding day. x

“Take a step back and watch your wedding for a bit. It goes by way too quickly!”

“Make sure you have a photo timeline for sunset photos.”

“Take in every moment of the day, from start to finish. Don’t sweat the small stuff and always have lipstick/lipgloss on hand.”

“I had a private yoga class that my sister took with me. It helped me to relax on such a big day!”

“Highly recommend videographer if you can! Looking back on photos is always nice, but seeing the night unfold and the speeches, etc. is incredibly special”.

“Don’t rush back up the aisle after saying “I do”, take a moment at the altar to soak it in.”

“Make sure you have a day-of planner (if you’re opting out of an actual wedding planner).”

“Be sure to let your groom help with the decision-making process, it’s his day, too!”

“Relax. Enjoy it! Remember, this is a celebration of your love. Don’t sweat the small stuff.”

“It’s not all about the wedding, it’s about the marriage.”

“Make the day about you and your husband.”

“You are no longer in control; be in the moment and cherish what may or may not go according to plan.”

“Get your hair and makeup done earlier than  you plan to have more photo time.”

“Make a must-do, specific shot list for your photographer (attendees at cocktail hour, etc.).”

“If something doesn’t go according to plan, no one else besides you will notice”.

“Make sure you are by your new husband’s side all night so you can look back on everything together.”

“After the wedding ceremony and photos, take a private moment with your spouse and have a glass of champagne just the two of you.”

“Take moments of alone time with your spouse throughout the weekend… it is the fastest day/weekend you will ever experience.” (I’m crying)

“Give bridesmaids and groomsmen tasks so that the two of you don’t have to worry about anything.”

“Have someone be in charge of tipping the staff. Put cash in small envelopes that are ready to go.”

“Break in your wedding shoes.”

“Photos are great, but memories are better. Immerse yourself completely in the evening and be fully present.”

“Take moments during the day and night to stop and realize how awesome the day is and how blessed you are!” (more tears)

“Write down your favorite moments shortly after.” (love this)

“Eat your dinner! Promise, just do it.”

“Have a nice drink before vows. Wear waterproof makeup.”

“Don’t take it too seriously, it’s just a party!”

“Buy wedding shoes you can wear more than once.”

“Unplug for a week leading up to the wedding, relish the anticipation.”

“Just remember at the end of the day, you are marrying your best friend… the day is already perfect.” (yes)
