Put first aid material, deodorant, tampons, stain remover, comfortable shoes and whatever else you remember in your “kit”. Ask your godmother, mother or friend to keep it and always have it available.
Too much perfume might make you feel sick and attract bugs!
If what can’t be missing are photographs of the couple that could be seen in magazines, it might be a good idea to schedule the ceremony in order to be available to that moment the photographers call “Golden hour”. Find out at what time the sun sets and enjoy the wonderful light.
A more natural and rustic environment doesn’t mean a smaller budget. Setting up a reception in the countryside, for example, implies renting generators, toilets, air conditioning, lights, tables, chairs and everything else, other than the tent if that’s the case. Despite the luxurious environment of a hotel, palace or villa, these already have all the necessary infrastructures to an event. The choice is just a matter of style and, of course, budget.
Many people are tempted to simply hope it won’t happen. The better option is to be realistic and have a plan B. Trust us when we say you would rather have a covered alternative area, book a tent, awning or umbrellas for the ceremony, even if you don’t use them in the end.
Budget! See what you can and want to spend. It’s a delicate matter but defining a budget before everything else will save you some heartbreak, like falling in love with a location that would force you to cut on the guest number or on the honeymoon, for instance.
You’re going to need energy, believe us! You’re going to be running from one place to the next and probably spend a few hours without eating until you can finally sit and rest, so on the big day have a breakfast rich in proteins and carbs.
