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
