Let’s face it, we all have those thoughts. You know, the ones where you picture everything that could possibly go wrong on your wedding day. Let me be the first to say that those thoughts are completely normal! Every bride, every groom, and even every wedding planner, we have all been there! Good news is that there are precautions that you can do to help those worrisome thoughts from becoming a reality. Don’t worry, we got your back!
1. Roughen Up The Bottom of Your Shoes
New shoes are always a good thing, but it also can be a dangerous thing, especially for those of us who are going to be using them for our special days. The best thing you can do to help prevent accidental slip ups is to roughen up the bottom of your new shoes! You and your partner could possibly wear them to your dance rehearsals, you can wear them to a date night, or you can wear them while you’re running wedding errands! If those don’t sound like options for you, rubbing the bottom with a course material like sandpaper should do the trick!
2. Freeze Your Candles For a Longer Burn Time
Candles are a timeless decoration for your wedding day! They are elegant, add a romantic effect, and always make a great impression on wedding guests! If you plan on burning them for the entirety of your special day, freezing your candles the day before will help them burn at a slower rate and allow them to last longer! Elegance that lasts is a win in our book!
Side Note…most wedding venues have rules when it comes to candles. Check with the manager of your venue about their rules, but having glass covers or even fake candles should work!
3. Use Mirrors or Chalkboards for Your Signs
If there’s one thing nobody tells you about planning a wedding, it’s that reusable items are the way to go! This goes for the big items too, like your wedding signs! You already know that you’re going to need signs at your wedding, so why not invest in ones that you can use even after your wedding day has finished? Using erasable boards like chalkboards or even mirrors make a unique touch for wedding day signs and can even be reused in your home, for your sister or best friends’ wedding, or at other events in the future!
4. Freeze the Top Tier of Your Wedding Cake
Are you and your spouse intending to save the top tier of your cake and eat it on your first wedding anniversary? A simple hack that will help keep your cake from getting messy is to set it in the freezer! Have someone you trust place the cake in the freezer for about 30 minutes before you wrap it up and it will keep the icing from sticking to your foil or container. Less mess means less stress!
5. Save Money by Creating a Wedding Website
Directing your guests to your own wedding website will help you and your soon-to-be-spouse save a good chunk of money! Getting cards for the rehearsal dinner, bridal showers, weddings shower, and other fun wedding festivities can start to add up. Not only will a website help your wallet and the earth, it will also allow for you and your fiance to connect and spend time together creating your own site!
