For our guide to 12 essential things every bride should know before her wedding day, have a read below:

  1. Register

Make sure to register for wedding gifts. If you don’t register, then you have no control over what gifts you will get. Think about it, do you really want three toasters?

Register for wedding gifts at your favourite home store, then if there are any gifts you don’t like, you can return them and get store credit.

  1. Buy a pair of seamless pants

When you are choosing your wedding dress all you are thinking about is how gorgeous it makes you look, and rightly so.

But, if you are buying a tight fitting or light material wedding dress, then it is important to make sure that the camera flashes don’t make anything visible. That is why a pair of seamless, nude pants are an excellent choice for your wedding day.

  1. Don’t waste money of tooth whitening

Paying for an expensive tooth whitening treatment is a waste of money. If you want to whiten your teeth, opt for a DIY tooth whitening kit instead.

  1. You will need a spa appointment

Book yourself and a few of your closest friends in for a spa day a week or so before your wedding day.

As your wedding day approaches the stress can really start to take its toll, that’s why spending a day relaxing at a spa is ideal.

  1. Take photos before the ceremony

Have your wedding photos taken before the ceremony, that way there will be no delay in getting to the reception, to celebrate with your guests.

  1. Arrange for the caterer, to pack you and your husband food for later

However much you intend on eating at your wedding, with so many guests to greet, people to thank and speeches to give, there is a high chance that you won’t have time to eat.

Speak to your caterer beforehand, and ask them to pack up some food for you and your new husband to eat later on.

  1. Tell the venue to save your cake

Make sure that you instruct the venue to save the remains of your wedding cake for you, as you may be too busy to take it with you when you leave.

You can always take some cake back with you to your hotel for a late night treat. After months of pre-wedding dieting, you will most probably be craving a yummy piece of cake.

  1. Pick a bathroom buddy

Peeing in a wedding dress is a lot harder than it looks. To avoid a dress in pee situation, it is important that you select a bathroom buddy for your wedding day.

Your best friend, sister or a close female relative are all good options for a toilet buddy.

  1. Stick a lipstick in your husband’s coat pocket

Even if your makeup artist is amazing, you may still need to reapply your lipstick at some point throughout the day.

Give your lipstick to your new husband to look after for you. That way you can access it and reapply whenever you need to.

  1. Don’t overspend on wedding favours

Of course you want to thank your guests for coming along, but there is no need to overspend on wedding favours.

Just make sure that you pick something fun and unique that all your guests will love.

  1. Take time to enjoy the day

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event, and despite all the planning that goes into it, the day will only last for a few hours. So, make sure to take time out to enjoy yourself and have fun.

Dance with your husband, chat with your friends and enjoy the delicious drink you have carefully picked out.

  1. Go on honeymoon two days later

Don’t book your honeymoon for the following day, after such as hectic day you will be exhausted.

Instead, book your honeymoon for two days after your wedding, that way you will have time to recover before you jet off.
