Make sure your bridal party has food to eat before the wedding. It’s a long day and people forget to eat and then get drunk too early or headaches.

On the day of the wedding, if something goes wrong, don’t turn into a bridezilla. Chances are that your guests won’t know. Even if they do, honest moments at weddings are my favourite and just make it real. You don’t want to look back on your day thinking of all the time you spent upset or mad. 

Everyone says the day goes by quick, but try not to let it. In advance, think of the moments you want to be very present for. Take multiple times to have a quiet moment to yourself to look around you. Besides the obvious special times you will have with your partner, think of moments like watching all of the girls getting ready and do little things to support you. At our ceremony, right after they pronounced us husband and wife it was amazing just looking at everyone in the crowd smiling and clapping and thinking to myself – they are here just for us. While eating dinner, looking at your guests laughing, enjoying themselves, etc. Watching your partner smile while interacting with people he/she loves, etc. Remind yourself to be present and realize how lucky you are to have every single person who is a part of your day in your life. 

Wait until the next day to open cards and gifts and do it together.

If you’re staying in a hotel after, have some snacks packed away in case you’re hungry after the wedding. My Maid/Matron of Honor prepared a bag of snacks (granola bars, fruit, etc) and it was such a good idea because we felt hungry after the wedding was over.
