I am so glad you are here I have 5 Tips for the Bride! I have some great inside tips to help you be prepared for and enjoy your wedding day. (Read 5 tips for the groom).

  1. Break in your new wedding shoes

Those fancy new shoes you can’t wait to wear until your wedding day, practice wearing them inside for 30 minutes a day for about 2 weeks prior to your wedding so they are comfortable to walk in and your feet won’t bother you at the end of the night

  1. Pack an emergency wedding kit

There are tons of great resources on what to put in this bag but at the minimum pack lipstick, hairspray, safety pins, bobby pins, tampons, mints, and Tylenol. You never know what you are going to need so it is best to be prepared.

  1. The Dress needs time to breath

Don’t let your gown sit in the bag all day, it needs time to breath. When you get to the venue, take it out of the bag, hang it up away from the makeup and action and allow it to settle and let gravity take care of any of the little wrinkles that may have been caused from sitting in the bag.

  1. Get ready early

Allow yourself plenty of time in a nicely lit room to enjoy the beautiful day and give yourself plenty of time to be ready and enjoy mimosas with your bridal party and relax rather than feeling rushed.

  1. Smile

This day comes and goes and it is so important to look and feel happy on your wedding day. Always think about the big picture and what this day is truly for. Smile brighter than your new diamond, let the small things go and enjoy every second happily.

I hope you enjoyed my 5 tips and I can’t wait to chat with all the eager brides (and grooms)! Chat soon.
