Wedding Tips for your big day


The night before.

  • Go easy on the grog the night before. Your wedding day is a long day. Don't be hung over.

  • Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated

  • No KFC, beans, curry or other ‘windy’ foods the night before!

  • Pack an esky of food and snacks, and leave in the car. Bring out during photos. You’ll be starving after the ceremony!

The big day.

  • EAT (and avoiding fainting)

  • Wear waterproof mascara, and long-lasting lipstick.

  • Bride – wear your engagement ring on your right hand.

  • When in the car, be in mobile phone contact with a guest at the venue so that if you are running late, you can advise me. Things happen and that’s OK.

  • Maid of Honour – Ensure at all times throughout the ceremony that the bride’s train and veil are beautifully positioned, and free of leaf litter! Try to not step on her dress.

  • Hold your bouquets to cover your belly buttons, not your boobs. Dry stems so as not to mark your dress.

  • As you begin the Processional, chin up, shoulders back and smile! Walk slowly and naturally – no Death March!

  • Best Man – know where the rings are at all times!

  • Best Man – carry a clean hanky for the groom in case of tears.

  • No hands in pockets! Left hand over right to see your watches.

  • Nothing in your pockets, other than a hanky - NO SUNGLASSES/PHONES/KEYS

  • If you feel faint, move your knees, wriggle your toes, even shake out your hands. Get the blood flowing and take a few slow, deep breaths.

  • An important note about sobriety: You will be signing legal documents on your wedding day; so, if I assess that you are under the influence, I will perform a commitment ceremony only. Same for your witnesses.

  • Bride – sign all documents in maiden name.

Most of all enjoy every single moment of your day. It will be fabulous and the memories you make will last a lifetime. xx
