Delegate as much as possible on the day of your wedding. Family an friends usually love to get involved and help out. Be clear with your directions to them an what you want – and then relinquish responsibility! If you have any last minute running around to do – ask someone else to do it! (For example, pick up suits, flowers, decorate tables.)
You will enjoy your wedding day if you can arrive at your ceremony feeling relaxed, unflustered and ready to celebrate! This is even more important if you are planning a wedding at home.
Relaxing and feeling rested is the most important aspect to starting your day – allow yourself to be pampered! Enjoy a walk along the beach, go for a surf or swim, have a game of golf or arrange a massage – whatever it takes for you to have fun and relax!
Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint
The buzz of the wedding morning can often mean Brides and Grooms forget to eat. To keep your energy levels up – make sure you eat breakfast (and lunch if you are having an evening wedding). This is especially important for Brides/Grooms who have hair and make-up appointments during lunchtime. Ask a friend or family member to make a beautiful platter and bring it along with you. Drink lots of water so that you arrive clear-headed, hydrated and ready for the wedding ceremony.
Arrive on time! This allows guests to feel comfortable and for everything to unfold as planned. This is important if you want to create a sense of respect about the commitment that you are about to share. Also be aware that your celebrant or minister may have another commitment to attend afterwards.
Make sure that everyone has access to plenty of water. It’s not uncommon for a member of the wedding party to fait due to dehydration!
Your wedding day is the beginning of your life as a married couple – it is about the commitment that you make to each other.
How would you like that to be honoured in your ceremony?
It is vital that the ceremony reflects what is important to you both – it sets the scene for the rest of your lives together! You owe it to yourselves to work with a celebrant who will help you create a ceremony which is special, memorable and unique to you both.
