It’s here! It’s your big day! It’s time to marry the love of your life. It has probably seemed like a whirlwind of activity to get to this point as you go from choosing the perfect dress to the finding the most elegant venue to exploring the perfect honeymoon destination to finding your vendor dream team. Now that the big day has arrived, there are some things potential Rochester brides should think about. These are 5 Wedding Day Secrets to ensure your day goes off without a hitch, just as planned, and stress free!
5 Wedding Day Secrets
#1 – Leave the Cell Phone Behind
As much as the majority of people rely on their cell phone for everything from instant communication to the latest news, carrying around your cell phone on your wedding day just doesn’t help. Last minutes texts from friends or family may be well intentioned, but they hardly help when you’ve got a schedule to keep and what seems like a million things going on. In order to save your sanity, do yourself a favor and leave your cell behind.
#2 – Pack a Bridal Emergency Kit
Don’t let small emergencies ruin your day. When you pack a small bridal emergency kit you can have many things ready that you might need at the last minute. Consider packing everything from a small sewing kit to extra cash for emergencies. Deodorant, fashion tape, extra hair accessories and glue should also be included.
#3 – Bring an Extra Pair of Shoes
Who hasn’t had sore feet at the end of a long day? It’s even worse if you’re in heels all day or you have a long wedding ceremony. So, remember to pack an extra pair of comfortable shoes for the reception. One great idea is to buy a pair of all white canvas tennis shoes and decorate them with lace, ribbons, pearls, or beads. Make them match your dress as much as possible. You will be able to enjoy the entire day more, you won’t have to forgo that extra dance, and most importantly, your feet will thank you.
#4 – Rely on Others
Even if you’ve single-handedly planned every detail from beginning to end, the day of your wedding will be more stressful if you don’t rely on others. If you have a wedding planner, great! If not, ask the venue coordinator, one or two trusted friends, or family members to make sure all the vendors show up on time, know where they need to be, and are available to answer any questions vendors might have. The last thing you need to worry about is whether your something or someone shows up 15 minutes late or not.
#5 – Hire the Perfect DJ
The ceremony will be the highlight of your memories, but guests will remember the reception. Make sure you hire the #1 professional Rochester DJ who can get your guests involved and show them a great time they won’t soon forget.
