my tips:

  1. There are things that will turn out differently than how you envisioned them. You can’t let any of this bother you day of; have fun regardless.  
  2. Don’t worry about other people. People complain by nature and don’t stress out about their situations.
  3. Make sure your logistics are tight. You don’t want to do any work on your wedding day, make sure someone is there to move things along and set up things that need to be setup.

This is the tip my Maid/Matron of Honor gave me! And it was perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

Its your day, what’s done is done. There is no changing the details now so don’t stress about anything because it is out of your controle!! Enjoy every moment because it truly flys by! And when you are announced MR and MRS take a few extra mOments at the alter to just soak it in because it will be the only time you will be announced MR and MRS for the first time  ๐Ÿ™‚

i agree with having a bm remind you about reapplying lipstick, the last half of my reception pix i have no lipstick which i regret since i spent so much money on getting makeup done.

eat a good breakfast and remember to drink water throughout the day! u dont want to risk fainting or feeling weak on your special day. it wasn’t that hot on our wedding day but if my mother hadnt forced me to drink water i wouldve become dehydrated. now that i think about it i didnt use the bathroom since that morning :/

I have not been the bride but I work at weddings so here are my insider/outsider tips.

–EAT.  You just paid a lot of money for this food.  You can circulate after you’ve eaten.    Have your wedding party guard you from well wishers or just have a plate of food brought to you before you enter the reception and dinner is served to everyone else.  You need to eat or you will get very drunk and/or faint.  

–Try to take 10 minutes to just be together in private right after the ceremony.  This is a great time to eat something but even if you don’t do that, take that time.  Your night is going to be crazy and people will not let you have time with your new spouse unless you make it happen.  Ask someone to collect family for photos while you and your spouse run off and hide for 10 minutes.  Collecting family usually takes a bit and it’s a lot of standing around time that you could be using to take a quick break.

–Don’t let people trap you.  I once saw a bride literally cornered for 2 hours by well wishers.  She did not get to the buffet, did not get to walk around and see people–she was trapped.  People will follow you around so if you’re feeling cornered, just say “Hey let’s walk to the candy bar–I want to see how that turned out” and start walking.  You can also have your groom rescue you–no one’s going to deny the groom a moment with his bride on their wedding day.
