7 Secrets To Having The Perfect Wedding Day

Posted in: ,

By Fikayo Giwa,

There’s no such thing as a perfect wedding day! Controversial or perhaps drastic statement I know but what I mean is that not everything will go as planned. Once you come to terms with this fact; you will feel a lot more peace in the final planning stages and on the day.

To help you better deal with the fact that not everything will go according to plan, Hire a planner, a professional, someone that’s is experienced dealing with wedding day hustle and bustle, hitches and formulating plan B’s (someone like me). This will give you peace of mind and leave you to sit back and enjoy your day knowing that your planner can handle anything the day throws at them.

Only invite people that you know genuinely love and are happy for you. There are so many wedding hangers on and people who just want to see what you’re going to do on the day. Weddings are too expensive to fill your day with people like this. But imagine the pure joy and pride you’ll feel walking into your ceremony with loving eyes all on you.

It’s true that you probably know what you want, where you want it and how you want but Be flexible where it counts. Perhaps this is letting your father give a speech that is slightly longer than the 2 minutes you allocated him – it’ll make him happy. Or maybe letting your groom choose the wedding car he has always wanted despite it not working with your theme – he has nicely let you have everything else your way.

Costs mount and budgets stretch but in one way or another Treat yourself. Be it your make up artist, your dress or your décor, do something you really want to do for your wedding day.

Your Bridal party should be true friends. You will spend the majority of your wedding day with them so it’s important that they are genuinely happy for you and want to make the day great for you. You will have the most fun and the best memories with these types of friends.

Good food – good food makes everyone happy.

Put these secrets into practice and you’ll experience your very own perfect wedding day.
