It’s your wedding day so if you want to wear a red dress... do it! (It'll look amazing in the photographs!)
Take a second pair of shoes, ballet flats, runners... even gumboots to save your feet and your beautiful shoes if you go 'off road' for your photographs!
Your family and friends are special so make a list of the people you want photographs with and give it to your photographer! (We'll make it happen!)
Trust your vendors, you've chosen them for a reason. Your florist, caterers, and your photographer are in the business of weddings and as they say 'this isn't our first rodeo'. Your ideas will be our inspiration, so trust us to take care of you.
Try not to get caught up on organising a 'production' - your wedding day is a celebration of you and your partner. Make it about you and those things that matter... it's about the love, your love!
Choose a photographer that will give you fabulous things as part of your photography package; prints, an album and a big beautiful framed print for your wall! Photographs are made to be gazed upon and not kept in the dark on a USB.
The most important thing you need to do on your wedding day is pause, breath, and remember your relationship is the number one thing you'll have after your wedding day is done. Work harder on that than your wedding preparations, you won't regrete it.
Bonus tip: you're gorgeous so just be the best version of you on your wedding day.
