Just in case you do let out a tear or two, make sure you apply waterproof mascara to ensure you don’t ruin your bridal makeup look. Keep a few makeup touches and tissues your bridal emergency kit.
3. Somethings Don’t Always Go To Plan
Our inner perfectionists are coming out when it comes to spending countless hours over the past few months to plan the perfect wedding, the last thing you want is for everything to go exact to plan. But as annoying as it is, last minute things do happen but hey, why should a minor detail ruin your entire day? Don’t sweat the small stuff and just enjoy the day as it comes.
4. You Won’t Even Think Twice If Things Don’t Go As Planned
You’ll look back and think that was absolutely nothing! Planning your wedding was such a personal experience for you and your partner and the funny thing is you might be so caught up in the magic of the day, you probably won’t even notice the little things that went wrong!
5. It Will Be Weird To Suddenly Call Your Man Your Husband
But don’t worry, you’ll get used to it! From boyfriend, to fiancé to suddenly calling him your husband you’ve made it and it will defiantly sound weird for the first few times. But it’s so exciting and super surreal.
6. Your Dress Will Get Dirty
That is to be expected, after all, it is [most likely] white! But not to worry, these things can be fixed with a trip to a good dry cleaner that will have your dress looking good as new.
7. Walking Down The Aisle Goes Way Too Quickly
It’s one of those moments that are drawn out immensely long on TV shows and your favourite bridal movies and a moment every girl has dreamed of, walking down the aisle meeting her Prince Charming at the end. But when the moment comes, the butterflies are fluttering and there is an overwhelming yet natural feeling to just run down the aisle and into your man’s arms. With everyone staring at the beautiful bride, this only makes the bride want to walk faster to get to the other end. Slow this moment down and enjoy soaking in all the beauty around you.
8. You Most Likely Won’t Have A Chance To Enjoy The Food
After picking out and taste testing an exquisite menu for your wedding, chances are you won’t be able to sit back and enjoy it. You’ll be busy greeting guests, floating around your reception venue, thanking everyone for coming, taking photos and all the other newly wedded duties. You’ll be hanging for that hotel room service afterwards!
9. Your Honeymoon Will Be The Best Time Of Your Life
No more wedding planning, no more stress of the big day…it’s just you and your new husband! Take your honeymoon as the perfect opportunity to create some amazing memories with your partner and enjoy every second figuring out married life.
10. You Won’t Know What To Do With Yourself After The Day Is Over
Once you return to normal life after the honeymoon, continuing your day-to-day routines, it’ll seem like your wedding happened ages ago, even though it was only recent! Just remember, this is only the beginning, you have a lifetime of happiness, learning curves and times of growth ahead of you both.
