-Wake up Refreshed.
Make sure you get to bed at a decent hour the night before! Nothing worse than those pesky bags on your big day! Probably best to have the hen and stag do’s at least a week before the big day!

During the day both Bride and Groom will have to go long periods of time without eating, so make sure as soon as you wake up you fill your boots with a breakfast fit for a king and queen!
-Give yourself plenty of time to get ready!
Who wants to be rushing around in a tiz on their wedding day? You want to be able to enjoy your time getting ready, relaxing and having a giggle not stressing about whether you’ll finish in time.
-Grooms should make a list of all the things they need to do on the morning of the wedding.
Bridesmaids are brilliant at helping the bride remember the necessities, but the same can’t be said about Groomsmen, although, you can definitely count on them to bring the beer!
-Stop to take it all in during the ceremony.
Ask the person officiating the ceremony to include a ‘deep breath’ moment, so you can look over your guests and gaze at your spouse, and burn that memory into your brain!
-Stay poised during the best man and bridesmaid’s speeches.
If something inappropriate is said its best to let it go, and not have a massive reaction. No one is likely to notice the comment, but they are likely to notice you charging at the best man like a bull in a china shop.
-Arrange a group photo at the reception
Your photographer might try and arrange these, but save the more formal group shots for Family and close friends. Why not ask the DJ to call over old school friends and work colleagues for those more relaxed fun shots.
-Be careful with Alcohol.
This is a day you want to be able to remember. We aren’t saying don’t have fun, but those embarrassing stories about you around the breakfast table are best saved for your friends weddings. (Try have a drink of water in between each alcoholic beverage)
Pack Flats for the Reception!
Let’s be realistic, you’re gonna be on your feet all day! Why not plan ahead and have a cute pair of ballet flats/flip flops to hand! Save those poor feet from sore blisters!
Give the DJ a list of songs you want to hear!
This way you’re more likely to hear your jam as opposed to ‘Music Man’.
-Have a relaxed attitude about the Wedding night.
If you experience Fireworks, amazing! However, after a long day many Brides and Grooms collapse in exhaustion. Don’t worry; there is plenty of time for fireworks!
Remember why you’re there!
Amid all of the fun and celebration be sure to take a moment to look over at the person you’re pledging your life to and think about the incredible journey your about to take with this person!
