Our biggest advice for brides is to make sure to manage time appropriately. It is best to place an order for your bridal garments atleast 45 days ahead of the event so you have ample amount of time for fittings and alterations for the perfect look. Brides inform us about not remembering their big day as they are stressed out and panicking. Hence, it is advised to be present in the moment so you can cherish the memories for a lifetime.

Couples are advised to sit down with their wedding photographers and planners and have a detailed conversation about what they want. Prepare lots of photos, maybe a Pinterest board beforehand to show them what you really like. Doing this will help them know what gear to bring and what shots they are responsible for.

Finally, just remember that small details don’t matter and are not worth having petty fights over. Guests won’t remember what name card design was on the table or if they received a parting gift or not. Focus on the big picture – location, food, decor, and photography – and most importantly have a good wedding planner and trust their instincts whole heartedly. They have been doing it for a long time and would have your best interests at heart.
