Perhaps you are excitedly planning for your own wedding day?
Alternatively, maybe you are instead about to gain a new son-in-law or daughter-in-law, and you are looking for ideas for how to prepare your child for one of the biggest days in their whole life?
Either way, here for your information and reading pleasure are some amazing facts regarding what every bride should know ahead of her wedding day. By the time you get to try on wedding dresses, here’s what to know before trying on wedding dresses.
Take Time Choosing the Perfect Dress
First and foremost, one of the most important pieces of advice to give a soon-to-be bride is that they should take all the time they need, even if this comes with the frustration of those around them, to ensure they choose the most perfect wedding dress for their special day.
Tips for the bride when choosing the ideal wedding dress that they will feel attractive and comfortable in all through the day as well as when partying through the night include, but are not limited to the following:
- Take some welcome advice from wedding dress suppliers and professionals
- Be careful not to over-accessorize with a dress with plentiful embellishments
- Use mood boards and online resources to gather ideas
- Bear in mind the time of year of the wedding day
- Ask for a sample swatch of material before making the final decision
Do Everything You Can to Stick to Your Budget
Unfortunately, there are very few brides, and indeed grooms, who have an unlimited budget to spend on both their own attire and the rest of the wedding and subsequent reception.
When finalising the budgeting for your wedding, it is strongly advisable to encourage sticking to the budget as closely and tightly as feasibly possible, especially when there are always inevitable hidden costs that will crop up in the days and weeks leading up to the wedding.
Break in the Wedding Shoes
Even if the bride is planning on changing outfits for the evening wedding reception, it is highly likely that the shoes that they have chosen to match their actual wedding dress are still the shoes they will be dancing and partying in at the evening reception.
An extremely important piece of advice for brides ahead of their wedding day, therefore, is to break in the wedding shoes in the weeks and days before the big day itself.
Confirm Any Last-Minute Guest Acceptances
In an ideal world, as soon as the bride and groom send out their initial wedding invitations and save the date cards, every single invited guest will either confirm or else regretfully decline the invite within a week.
This way, it will be entirely clear as to who is attending the wedding, so seating plans, catering, and other considerations can be planned accordingly. However, in the real world, it is highly likely that more than one couple or family will wait to RSVP until the last week or so beforehand, so it is important to remember to check with people to find out whether they are definitely attending or not.
