1. Try On Your Dress

Try on your wedding dress 3 days before your wedding and check how to open it to go to wee and dance – the best way to wee is facing the wall and lifting the anterior part.

 

2. Appoint A Best Friend

You don’t want to be bothered with a million little things on your wedding day, and believe me, there will BE so appoint a best friend help out. You’ll need someone to hold onto your phone and field the texts, they can let you know if something truly disastrous is happening that needs your immediate attention and also FEED you before the wedding. With all the morning jitters, you’re likely to forget. And you definitely don’t want to put any champagne into your system without having a snack first!

3. Shoes!

You will need 3 pairs of shoes: slippers for the getting ready, high heels or cool shoes for the ceremony and easy comfy shoes for the DANCE!

5. Introduce Everybody

Arrange for your wedding party to meet and get to know each other before the wedding. It’ s likely they all are friends but, just in case, why not have dinner or drinks with all of them 1 month before and enjoy the pleasure of their company while they mingle?

6. Cream Or Fondant?

Don’t make the mistake of picking the wrong icing for you cake – buttercream, ganache, whipped cream, pastry creams (sometimes called creme patissiere), and cream cheese icings can melt so go for rolled fondant and marzipan-iced cakes if you’re having a hot, outdoor wedding.

7. Save The Date

Got a wedding website? Make sure to include a call to action reminding to guests to Save The Date. (don’t have a wedding website? speak to Pixel Fields)

8. Wedding Photos

Noon is harsh so don’t schedule your photo shoot to early – the best light is 2 hours before sunset, so enjoy it!

9. Clean Your Rings

Have your ring professionally cleaned – your jeweller will most likely do it for virtually nothing and  you can enjoy a prismatic extra sparkly ring for your photos.

10. Guestbook

Don’t just go for the standard guestbook, be creative and come up with something different. Some of the coolest we’ve seen are wishes on rocks, shells, painted on a canvas or even sung accompanied by a recorder! There are lots of great ideas on Pinterest.

11. The List

It’s most important that you put together a forget-me-not bag or list of items to take with you like the marriage certificate, rings, contact lenses/glasses, everything you can think of. Let your mother and/or sister know about it too in case you partied a bit too much!

12. Learn How To Say NO!

Lean how to respectfully say NO, because that is something you will need at some point in your planning (your mom’s old wedding dress or your uncle singing might be great… or not). Learn how to be firm and clear on what you won’t do and with love and compassion learn to say ‘NO thanks’.

13. Last But Not Least

THIS IS A PARTY and the most important thing is to enjoy yourself and have fun. Life is too short (and your wedding day will fly by) to hold a grudge or be angry because the candles didn’t stay lit so dance, drink and be merry!
