I want to share a few tips from a new bride to the future brides
Make the most of your day as it passes very quickly.
Your wedding will be beautiful, but not 100% as you wish in the slightest details. So, if during your day something does not go as planned do not be upset but enjoy the rest! You are the only ones to know the program at 100%, so a mistake for you will go unnoticed by your guests
Surround yourself with people who can advise you and tell you the truth. As a bride, we often keep specific ideas to ourselves! An outside opinion can help you to see things differently.
During the preparations, if a relative tells you something “negative” about your dress, your decor … listen to them (even if in the end you remain with your own idea). Because your choice may be wrong. My witnesses and my mother were a little hard on me, but after all, I sometimes changed my mind and I did not regret it!
Make a wedding that suits you whatever the budget. With the help of a wedding planner.
Sometimes, to avoid conflict or to please a friend, our parents, or even our future husband, sometimes we say « YES » to things that we do not like or that we do not want to do! Do not be afraid to say « NO » it’s your day and you have to live it for yourself. It would be unfortunate to feel frustrated during the preparations or even the day of your wedding because you did not say “NO”.
Do not hesitate to ask for help.
For those who order their dress on the net, take a dress two sizes above yours. Better a garment a little big that can be retouched by a seamstress than a size too small that requires you to redo the purchase process, in addition to the process of return.
Do not go for high centerpieces event if they are beautiful, they are tall, and the people sitting at the same table can not see each other. Which results in less conversation.
No one will remember the color scheme but it is the day that they will remember. And no one cares about the favors or bothers to take them. A waste!
Do not forget what the day is about « You and your new spouse! I wish I have spent more time with my groom at the wedding reception.
Guests drive really far and take time to be there for you, « make sure to acknowledge that«. I wish I have talked to all my guests at the wedding. Even just to say hello!
I loved that I made a seating chart. Even that was really difficult. I knew everyone was sitting next to the people they cared about, away from people in conflict.
