Have a bag with emergency things you think you may need, lipstick, flat shoes, band aids, powder, safety pins, sewing kit etc and give it one of your bridal party to be in charge of. Then you know you’ll have what you need on hand for the day.

  • Wedding: August 2016

Remember what the day is about – getting married! As long as you end up married at the end of the day anything else that goes wrong doesn’t matter. Trust me, you will have a lot more fun if you are laid back about everything.

Oh and I made these cute little cards for everyone in the wedding party and the parents that had the contact info for all the vendors so if something went wrong no one needed to call me!

And hire a day-of-coordinator. Ours was worth her weight in gold! She made the whole day flow so smoothly and I didn’t have to worry about a thing.

 nadiabee :  Bahahahaha, I did this at my first wedding, It’s how I ended up washing dishes, stacking chairs, sweeping floors etc in my wedding dress. The magic fairies of course we’re going to come and do it for us lol.

My mom told me it’s always fun to have things out of control. She laughed everytime when a pigeon from no where came and crushed her cake at her wedding. My father laughed about how everyone looked at that time…So I guess it’s ok to have accidents, it’ll be fun memories at last.

nadiabee :  oh completely, my first day wedding is jokingly referred to as the murphy wedding. If it could go wrong it did. The marriage was brief, and overall it was probably one of my worst choices that I didn’t see the red flags for u til it was too late. However I have excellent stories of the stupidity lol.

i wish someone had told us, “guest list first, then venue.” it would have saved a lot of guest-list angst.

everyone told me two things: things will go wrong and you won’t care, and you’re not going to eat anything so get someone to make up a box of food for you to take when you leave. they were completely right, though when we got to the hotel we were too exhausted to eat the food.
