Tip #1: Sleep Well The Night Before

This sounds like an obvious thing to do, but many brides go to bed late and anxious about the big day ahead. Instead, take a bath, drink plenty of water and go to bed early!  You’ll wake up glowing and ready to celebrate.

Your makeup artist will appreciate this too as you won’t have any dark circles under your eyes. A win win for everybody 🙂

Tip # 3: Schedule Plenty of Time For Your Romantic Photos

This is so important! I know you don’t want to miss a moment of your party, or perhaps you are so anxious about your ceremony that you overlook this important moment. As a photographer – and perhaps I am biased, I can’t recommend this enough!  Set aside at least 45 minutes just for you and your partner; 10 years from now you will wish you had less photos of the table details and more romantic photos of the two of you.

Tip # 4: Plan Ahead For Your Formal Photographs

I call these the “Mom pleasers”, the reason why is because many couples don’t care about them, but mothers LOVE them. These formal portraits are also an important time of your day; however, if you are not careful this moment can be overwhelming and take longer than what you want.

My tip to you is to create a list ahead of time of the people you want to be formally photographed with. For example: Bride and Groom with Parents, Bride and Groom with Maternal grandparents… you get the idea. Now, be very careful as this can become a very tedious thing to do. I recommend choosing your closest family members to be formally photographed with. After all, the rest of your guests can be captured in a more casual way during the party.

Make sure your photographer has chosen a location ahead of time to do this, so you and your family members will know where to go and when to do so. You can enlist the help of your event planner or maid of honor to do the job of gathering the guests and organize them into groups.

Tip 5: Let It All Out On The Dance Floor!

This is your party, so you better have an AMAZING time on the dance floor. Forget about chatting with your parents’ guests and making small talk with your 3rd cousin. If people want to congratulate you, they better get down with the latest tunes, and have some impressive moves!

GET CRAZY! HAVE FUN! DANCE YOUR HEART OUT! This is going to be one of the happiest days of your life, so make sure you enjoy it!!!
