As you might have noticed i didn’t post this and its been just over a month since we got hitched and with everything going back to normal i finally had time to finish my Top Tips for a stressed out Bride.
Yep they do in my case not only a week before the wedding but also ON the day itself so your table plan won’t be looking how you imagined it after 6 people dropping out leaving my 10person table down to 4 I decided to scrap the table 14 all together and moved the 2 couples onto spare places on 2 other tables.
you are allowed to be as late as you want.
because the church was in a valley in the middle of nowhere my dad even drawn a little map
for all the drivers just in case.
This is one of my biggest regrets i forgot to take a picture of us with my dearest Godmum,
The best thing what you can do is write a list and then pass it onto a good friend, SIL etc so she can tick them off as they are taken. My brothers Girlfriend was actually the one who told my Godmum to stand next to us in the big group picture so i do have this one to treasure and hopefully i can get a zoomed in copy of just the 3 of us made out of it.
5. Take some Time Out with your new Husband.
Even if its just 5 minutes, take him outside and let it all sink in!
This is another thing we somehow didn’t find time too. But nonetheless we had a amazing day and we reflected when we went on our mini honeymoon instead.
6. Ask for Help!
I decorated the Hall for 7 hours the day before the wedding and although i did have help from about 7 people i had so many friend come up to me afterwards saying they would have loved to help us but didn’t wanted to bother me, seeing as i was so stressed out. So i guess i should have ask for more help and everything would have been a tad easier and more relaxed so call in the troops to help you decorate and do last minutes bits the last few days before your big day!
7. Who needs favours??
From early on whilst planning our big day i decided to scrap the favours (well tell a lie, actually i did wanted to fill a basket with little organza bags filled with a memory stick and a little note so guest could take our wedding play list home with them upload it and put their pictures of our day onto it and send it back to us) and i am so so happy i did it saved me time, money and guess what everybody i have talked to after the wedding told me that they haven’t even noticed it. Its not really a common thing to do in Germany anyway. I think you are giving your guest the best present ever with having them here for your big day and celebrating your marriage and your love for each other!
I hope those Tips will help any future Brides!
Happy Wedding Planning!
From a very happy Bride!
