There is so much to learn and take in when planning and preparing for a wedding and it is so easy to forget the simple things, like practicality and your comfort on the day! Here are a few helpful wedding day tips for the brides to be out there to help your day run as smoothly as possible!
1. Baby Powder. Now this especially applies to the Australian and tropical destination weddings as it tends to be hot! A sprinkle of powder on the inner thighs before the dress is on helps prevent unwelcome chaffing and makes for nicer honeymoon legs!
2. Overnight Bag. Sounds so simple but it is often overlooked by brides. A good idea is for you or someone you know to drop off an overnight bag to your hotel room to make sure you don’t have to walk out of the hotel the next day in your wedding dress!!
3. Survival Clutch. A nice idea is to share a clutch with your maid of honour so that you both have access to it. In this clutch should be all the essentials to cover every situation for example lipstick, bobby pins, safety pins, comb, mints, wet ones, energy bar, band aids etc.
4. Water. Copious amounts of water is so important on the day. Although it does mean you will need the assistance of your bridesmaids to go to the toilet many times that day, it also means you keep hydrated. Your wedding dress can make you very hot making hydration necessary! Hydration also helps for all those extra glasses of champagne you fit in on the day! Plus it keeps your lips from cracking making your lipstick last longer!
Most importantly on the day….have fun and try and soak in every moment. Make sure you have a couple of moments throughout the day where you and your new husband can actually talk, have a cuddle and soak in the days festivities together.
