From writing your guests' names on their reply slips to buying co-ordinating umbrellas, turns out the little things can make all the difference!
#1 Send out your save the date/invites early
It may seem a bit obvious, but with all the big things (venue, cake, DRESS) on your tick list invites can get pushed aside. Doing this means the people you want at your wedding will be there (rather than being otherwise engaged at someone else wedding on the same day #annoying).
#2 Write your guests' names on their reply slips
Again, sounds simple (and maybe a bit like a waste of time) but more often than not, they'll forget this bit and just fill it in #FAIL leaving you to play 'guess the guest from the handwriting.'
#3 Write a list as you open your gifts
Seriously, because it'll be hard in three weeks time to remember if the gravy boat was from Aunt Silvia or Uncle Graham.
#4 Order multiple copies of your marriage certificate
This saves time when it comes to changing your name, as you don't have to wait for the only one in your possession to return before you can send it off again.
#5 Order the matching umbrellas
If you're getting married in England, it's always a good idea to be prepared when it comes to the weather. So, order the ten umbrellas that co-ordinate with your colour scheme. If it does rain, it'll be worth it for the pictures.
#6 Prep! Prep! Prep!
Make sure everything under the sun is ready, from the big things to the small things. You'll be throwing a wobbler if you can't find your favourite blusher on the morning of the big day!
#7 Chill out
If something goes wrong, be it the cupcake-tower falls to the ground mid-speech or you find theres a tussle over the last canapé, don't freak! The imperfections of the day are what make it memorable and what makes it yours.
#8 Take time out with hubby
It may seem obvious but with all the guests to greet - time can fly by! Make sure you make time for your new Husband and share the moment together!
#9 Bring flats!
If you're taking to the aisle in a pair of sky-scraping heels, fabulous! But, make sure to bring a pair of glitzy flats with you for the reception. Just in case. Nothing's worse than tired feet when you want to throw some shapes on the dance floor!
#10 Put your engagement ring on your other hand…
…for the ceremony. So hubby-to-be can slide on your wedding band without having to remove this first!
