If you ask someone who has already done the whole wedding extravaganza, they’ll tell you that after all the months (if not years) to plan a wedding, it all goes by in a jiffy and at the end of it all, you end up with the memories of the day and the good times shared.  So here are a few tips to help you make the MOST of your wedding day and have more memories to cherish a lifetime.

Recharge and Conquer

During your reception, you and your partner might want some time for yourselves, away from all the noise of the party. If the venue allows it, ask to have a small table set up somewhere private where no one can bother you. You can relax, talk to your loved one, sip on some champagne and recharge, even if for a few minutes. Give yourselves some time to rest your bodies and minds and then return to your guests fresher, full of energy and ready to conquer the dance floor!

Capture the Moment

Photos are an essential part of every wedding. You can make it even more fun for yourself and your guests by putting them behind the camera as well as in front of it. Giving your guests disposable cameras, so they can snap away during the event.  These candid photos would really depict how your guests are feeling and enjoying the event and would make a great album.  Sometimes, the eye of a loved one can see beauty where a professional photographer cannot.

Dancing Shoes

Picking your wedding shoes can be a challenge and once you’ve found the perfect ones, you might be so happy that you think you won’t be taking them off throughout the whole wedding. But listen to us when we tell you that that’s a bad idea! No matter how pretty your heels are, they most likely won’t feel as nice after 5 hours of standing in them. But that doesn’t mean you have to trade style for comfort. You can find a pair of cute, stylish, flats that will carry you comfortably and allow you to show everyone your moves on the dance floor.

Bridal emergency kit

Wherever you are, you always want to be prepared in case of an emergency and your wedding day is not an exception. Make sure you have a little pouch handy, filled with everything a bride in distress might need. Here’s a list of some of our essentials:

  • Band-Aids
  • Head/Stomach-ache pills
  • Lip balm
  • Glue (for a chipped nail, broken heel, etc.)
  • Clear nail polish (for stocking runs)
  • Chalk (to cover up any last minute smudges or smears on your dress)
  • Eye drops
  • Sedatives (or calming tablets for the overexcited ones)
  • Mini sewing kit
  • Safety pins
  • Small folding scissors
  • Mirror
  • Nail file and tweezers
  • Smelling salts (while we don’t expect anyone to faint, it has been known to happen)
  • Perfume
  • Make-up for touch-ups
