Advice for the bride

advice for brides to be

A wedding day is as important as hell. After you plan the whole event you have to get down to business with your look. Because let’s face it – everyone is going to look at you. And you have to look your best and feel your best. But what does that mean? I guess there is no definite thing I or anyone could say. It is all about your inside feeling.

It is important to firstly have a date for the wedding, a place and all of that fuss. Then we can start talking about everything else.

So where to start?

The Bride DRESS

After you have got your wedding location, you can start worrying about the dress. Never ever should the dress come before the place you are getting married at. Because you could be wearing something very, very vintage at way too modern place and stuff like that.

You should have your dress not later than two to three months prior to the wedding. No matter what you dress style is and if it is a typical wedding dress, your outfit should be set. This way you can think about all of the rest like makeup, hair, jewels and much more. When you start searching for a dress don’t stop at trying on dresses that you have only imagined. Try out very different styles, because you might be surprised when you find your dress.

Also think about the fact that many wedding boutiques could be attended only if you have an appointment. So make one in the prior and save your day. It is better not to go to more than 3 stores. Or you will go crazy. Search online and chose one place at first, that you love the most. If you don’t have luck there, probably you can go on to the next place.

The most important thing though – feeling good in your dress. Don’t listen to anyone in the shop or all of your friends that you brought with you. Just leave it to all of your senses. Imagine yourself walking down that aisle, in your location, with all the guest and your guy standing there. It should just feel right.

Bride accessories

Would you like to wear a veil, gloves, headpieces. If you are not sure about any of those things – you are lucky because when you have your consultation about the dress you would be consulted about that too.

A veil should not be overpowering you. Or the dress. It should be complimenting you. If your dress is very simple you could carry of a very powerful veil.

I wouldn’t advise you to wear gloves, unless your wedding is in the winter at a very cold destination. Otherwise, I don’t get the glove mania. First of all it wouldn’t be easier for you to have those on.

The head pieces are okay with almost any dress. But not with any face or any hair. It should be only complimenting you.

Shoes and underwear

Before your dress gets tailored you should most definitely first have your shoes and your underwear. This is because something might change once you have those.

Shoes – they should be as high as you feel okay with. But okay doesn’t mean what you feel okay looking with what, but what you can walk with and so that you don’t have to take off your shoes at the middle of the party.

And as of the underwear, the most important thing is that it CAN NOT be seen. If you are wearing a strapless dress, get a strapless bra. If your dress is body con – get underwear that doesn’t show underneath and make bumps. If you dress is backless – figure that out.

Once you have both the shoes and the underwear, your dress could be perfectly tailored, without a mistake.

Hair and makeup

Once you have your dress you can easily figure out the hair and the makeup. You probably know what looks best on you. Don’t over do it though. You makeup should be soft and subtle. Avoid fake eyelashes and too dark or black eyes. This will look too much for a white dress. And the hair should be simple. If you like your hair up – do that. This way you will feel comfortable.bride makeup

Of course every woman has her sense about her own look. And that is okay. That is what makes us unique. But remember you can not attend your wedding without having at least once your look done from top to bottom – that includes having your makeup, hair and also your dress on. This way you will see if something is wrong with the hair and makeup and it doesn’t go well with everything else. You also can have a test shoot to be sure.

And don’t forget something very important –

What you and your future husband must absolutely agree on

For you guys probably the hardest thing about the wedding is the bride to agree to put on the engagement ring. After this the job is to wait quietly till the big day comes. Oh, silly boys!

They may hope this will be the case with their wedding, but they surely are wrong. There are certain wedding preparation elements both the groom and the bride must agree on if they do not want to start their life as a family with quarrels. We have prepared for you a list of the most important preparation elements you and your partner must totally agree on.

The Venue

Establishing the venue is one of the most important things when it comes to a wedding. Everything is about the venue. It is the one thing that could make or break your wedding. If it is magical, the whole event will be the same.

There are great locations for weddings all over the world. The only thing you need to do is search for the best place possible, that both you and your partner will like.

If you like the beach, then you can have a wedding at the beach, free style. If you prefer your wedding to be in a more elegant style, then choose a ballroom with spectacular decoration. Just because now you can organize your wedding wherever you want, most couples start arguing.

In the end, of course, women win the fight, but it would be better if it does not start at all.

The Menu

You may think that the menu is insignificant part of the wedding preparations, since the bride and the groom are the people that eat least on their wedding. They have so much other things to do that they not only do not feel any hunger for all the emotions, but they also do not have time for it.

However, for the other guests this is not so insignificant thing. Some of them love to judge a wedding by its food, so it is very important to show the guests that the menu is something they can associate with you and your partner immediately.

If you are celebrating your wedding in another country, or if you are your partner are from different nations, then you should have a mixture of both. It is important to talk about a menu, one of you may want to have one thing and the other – another.

Of course, you should also consider the fact whether some of your guests (or you) have some kind of food allergies.

The Music

Music is the next very important element a wedding not only cannot go without, but also it can make it or break it. Music will be part of the whole celebration and you certainly must not leave it to chance.

The fact that you are your partner are in love does not necessarily mean that you two have exactly the same tastes for music. If you do, you will be lucky, of course. Good music is really subjective, so it will be a little difficult to negotiate the music, especially if you want your guests to have fun as well.

One thing you could do is to have a little bit of everything – the genre that you love, the genre that your partner loves and some of the genres that the guests love. And while a song that you are not fond of is playing, you may sneak for a while and have a bite of your wedding menu.

The Vacation

As it is with every other thing in the list, the spot for the honeymoon is very important and you should discuss it beforehand.

In some cases, the parents of the bride or the parents of the groom want to make a special present to the newly wed couple and they decide to choose the destination for them. This is not such a good idea, because if their child loves the place it does not necessarily mean that the other one will like it, too. The decision for the honeymoon should be entirely up to both of them.

If you want you can have a relaxing vacation, an adventurous vacation, a vacation on the beach, or in the mountains. You can go to an exotic country where the weather is hot or you can stay in your own country and enjoy the time in a place where everything is familiar to you. If you and your partner have similar tastes for vacation it will be a piece of cake to choose the destination.

However, if this is one of the things you two argue about, do not worry, there is still a way to figure it out. There are places in the world that give you opportunity to do more than one thing, as it is with Ibiza – you can have a wild party there or you can relax in a quiet hotel (yes, there are such ones in Ibiza). You only need to do the same and both of you will be satisfied.
