Every bride wants her wedding day to be perfect. Planning a wedding is a big challenge, making sure all the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted. Lists to make, vendors to contact, being mindful of your soon-to-be in laws. This should also be a wonderful time, filled with excitement and energy. Here are some great tips that might not know that will help make your wedding day exceed all your expectations.
Choose a one-stop venue
Intundla Wedding Venue is a one-stop venue where everything happens under one roof (or sky so to speak). Your wedding ceremony, reception, accommodation, you can plan your whole weekend and book Intundla exclusively. This takes care of a lot of unnecessary stress when planning your wedding, guest accommodation, etc.
Be flexible with your wedding date
If you can handle waiting till closer to your suggested wedding date, and you are flexible about the date of your wedding day, then you’d be surprised at the discounts you can negotiate. Most wedding venues and vendors are more able to offer discounts to brides with a shorter timeline because they are trying to fill up their bookings. But be warned if you want a specific date for your wedding it is best to book well in advance, especially if it is over a weekend!
Learn to relax
Take a deep breathe! Between now and (probably when your kids leave home) your wedding day there will be plenty of things that will go wrong or things happening that you didn’t plan for. The quicker you learn to take a step back, breathe deep, keep your sense of humour and relax, the better.
Have healthy snacks
On your wedding day the excitement will be rampant and you might not even feel like having breakfast! But make sure you nibble on healthy snacks and have some ready in your bridal party’s dressing room. Cheese, nuts, biltong and some fresh fruit will give you the energy you need to take those big steps down the aisle. Some people even advise the bride to have a few pregnancy nausea lozenges in her bag, they work wonders to settle the stomach!
Choose the best light for photos
Light can transform a wedding photo into something quite magnificent, if you pick the right time of day. Your photographer will be able to help you with this so ask for advice about where the best spots for your wedding portraits will be, and when the prime time will be to take your wedding photos. You might choose to have your photos taken before or after your wedding ceremony depending on the time of day.
Plan for extra time
No matter how meticulous your planning things always tend to take a little longer than planned. Leave extra time for everything. This is the key to having a stress free wedding and you want to be relaxed and having fun, not running around in a hurry.
