The Biggest Mistake Couples Make On Their Wedding Day

There are soooo many details you have to think about when planning your wedding! Details you never would’ve even thought of, details you spend hours obsessing over, details other people want you to think about, even details you don’t actually care about.

My couples confide in me a lot about all things related to weddings, and the number one thing that they regret about their wedding is caring so much about the details that they forget to actually enjoy their wedding day.

I get it. There’s a lot of things going on at a wedding. The schedule will be tight and there will be times where you’ll feel like you’re being pulled in every direction.

The best thing you can do for yourself after all those months (or years!) of wedding planning is ensuring that you truly take in the little moments during your wedding day:

 

Brides:

Relax when you’re being glammed up by your hair stylist and makeup artist.

Remember the sound of your champagne glass clinking with your bridesmaids’ glasses.

Let your mom help you put your dress on.

Lock eyes with your man when you walk down the aisle.

Remember how it felt when he put the wedding ring on your finger.

Smell the flowers in your gorgeous bouquet.

 

Grooms:

Let your dad help you with your tie.

Remember how you felt when you saw her in her white wedding dress for the first time.

Hug your mom.

Dance with your sister.

Really listen to the speeches- it’s okay to be emotional.

Hold your bride tight during your first dance.

 

Both of you:

Savour that very first kiss.

Look around at your guests and smile at them as you walk up the aisle as newlyweds.

Take 10 minutes after the ceremony to just be alone with each other- this is SO important!

Smile and goof around with your wedding party during portraits.

After the ceremony, say to yourself in your head, “That’s my wife/husband!” whenever you look at them.

 

I hope these tips help you on your wedding day to have a truly down-to-earth and real experience. Make sure to send this to your future hubby, and leave a comment below if you have any questions or comments!
