Who better to receive wedding advice from than someone who has already been there and put a ring on it? With all of the anxiety, cold feet and stress that comes with planning the big day it can be a relief to hear some good advice that will make the process a whole lot easier.
Plan ahead of time
Perhaps the best piece of advice anyone can give you is to plan your wedding well ahead of time. Prioritise your goals and aim to keep within your budget. According to Money Smart, just 43% of those married in Australia last year stayed within their budget and 82% of people paid for their wedding with their own savings.
Get your dress online
Wedding dresses can be expensive which is why so many people turn to the internet to find some great deals. Bride Online wedding dresses are particularly stunning, offering brides not only great choices but trusted fashion advice to help them make their all-important decision.
Make everyone feel welcome
You and your new husband/wife are basically the two hosts at your wedding which means it is up to you to make all of your guests feel as welcomed as possible.
Slow down and enjoy it
A common regret amongst married people is that they spent so much time worrying and stressing about their wedding that it all flew by too quickly. That is why it is advised to just take it easy and enjoy every second of your special day.
Choose a multi-purpose venue
It’s possible to rent out a venue that offers more than one job. For example, some venues include both catering and decoration which means there is a good chance you will end up saving not only money but precious time too.
You can’t make everyone happy, so please yourselves
No matter how hard you try, it is impossible to please everyone at your wedding. Your mother may want you to wear her old wedding dress but if you have something different in mind then don’t be afraid to speak out. This is your day, no-one else’s.
Hire a wedding planner
Remove some of that burden from your shoulders and hire a professional wedding planner to do all of the hard work for you.
Spend less on the wedding and more on the honeymoon
Your wedding lasts for only one day, which is why so many married people regret not spending less on the big day and more on the honeymoon.
Schedule ‘alone time’ with your new spouse
Your wedding day will be very busy so make some time for you and your new husband/wife. Take a moment and share in the joy of your wedding day together. Those wedding rings are more than just pieces of gold and according to Glamour magazine: “Wedding rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because it was once thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart.” There’s plenty of touching symbolism that it’s nice to stop and appreciate as events unfold.
Have a small drink before the ceremony
Calm those pre-wedding jitters with a small drink of your favourite alcohol before the ceremony. It will help to warm those cold feet whilst giving you that extra boost of confidence that you might need to bring yourself to walk up the aisle in front of all of those people.
