- Wedding: July 2017
What advice would you give to another bride during her wedding day based on things that went wrong or you would change?
For me it was 1. Bring extra earrings. I had an amazing pair and based my whole look around it and my photographer broke them while doing close up shots of them. I started crying and panicking because we were getting ready to leave. Luckily my bridesmaids gave me her earrings and I at least had something, but really if I could go back I would of bought myself another pair I really loved.
2. Bring flats and actually change into them. I decided to wear my heels the entire night because they didn’t feel too bad, but now my toes have been numb for the past 4 days since my wedding because of the shoes. Not sure what is going on, but it should go away?
3. Write your thank you speech before hand and remember to personally thank everybody. I had forgotten to write my speech and was in the bridal room during dinner frantically writing something with my bridesmaids and forgot to thank my mother in law.. regretting it so bad!
4. Be sure to have one of your bridesmaids know how to do up your dress. Originally the next door neighbour who altered my dress was going to tie up my corset back, but when it was time to get into my dress she was nowhere to be found. We were late 40 minutes to the ceremony because my bridesmaids had to tie up my dress and they had no idea what they were going. The seamstress tied it up for me before in 2 minutes and it took 4 girls 30+ minutes to do it up.
5. EAT! I was rushing around all day, and didn’t even get to eat dinner because I was getting up so often at the wedding. The next morning I woke up extremely hungry and hungover (guess cuz nothing in my stomach to absorb the alcohol) I would of eaten more before, and actually sat down and ate my dinner at the wedding instead of being so hyper and moving non stop
