The path to “I do.” can sometimes become overwhelming. With decisions constantly being made, both big and small, creating your special day is an important piece to your overall wedding plans. Because the newly engaged often find that wedding planning comes with hassles and downfalls, Your Fairytale Awaits has put together a quick and dirty list of mistakes new brides make before they walk down the aisle. From overdoing your wedding make-up to setting up the right timeline, there are many common mishaps new brides experience along the path to “I do.”
Announcing Your Engagement Too Soon
It is an exciting time, but don’t let your excitement about your big news get ahead of your manners. Updating your social media status with "engaged" is the quickest way to upset your close family and friends. And remember, not everyone is on or savvy with social media. Moreover, this intimate detail is best disclosed in person and designated for your closest family and friends before you post it on Facebook.
There are so many different crash diets available to new brides keeping them straight might need to be added as a wedding day item. Or not. Skip the fashionable fad diets and instead of drastically reducing your calorie intake a month before the wedding, begin a fitness plan instead. Adopt a healthier lifestyle at least 6 months before the big day, making sure you stay fully hydrated to keep your newlywed glow bright well into your honeymoon phase.
Time after time, brides make the mistake of leaving a large gap between their wedding and reception. As you are planning your wedding and reception, keep in mind the time gap between the two events. Many brides will choose a wedding venue and a different location for the reception. If you can’t avoid a large time gap between the wedding and reception, find options to provide entertainment, food and seating for your guests to ensure everyone is ready to help you celebrate. Minnesota parks provide great places for after-ceremony photo shoots and casual relaxation between events.
Overdoing on Your Do (and your make-up too!)
If you don’t have a glam squad helping you with your make-up and hair on your wedding day, you may want to reconsider. For some brides having a team of professionals onsite, like the team from Captivating Beauty in Brainerd onsite to do your hair and make-up can keep things running smoothly. If you opt to do it yourself ,make sure you don’t get too caught up in trends or overdue the make-up. Remember to be yourself first.
