Advice For Brides On Their Wedding Day


With your wedding day fast approaching, you're likely starting to get down to the nitty-gritty of it all and dream up what the day will look like for you. There's no doubt it will be one of the best days of your life full of beautiful memories. There are, however, little bumps in the road you may run into along the way which I'd like to help you avoid through this post!


Scroll down below for all the goodness!


01. EAT A BIG BREAKFAST


Eating a high-protein breakfast is mandatory on your wedding day. Many brides skip breakfast because they forget, have nerves, or are stressed. But, if you don't eat you will not be feeling your best! Eat a large breakfast with your family or bridesmaids to make it more enjoyable if you aren't a breakfast lover.



02. GIVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO GET READY


Get ready as early into the day as you can to avoid feeling rushed. Plus, leaving yourself extra time for any mishaps is crucial. This will allow your getting ready time to feel therapeutic and exciting rather than hectic and crazed.



03. SAY BYE TO YOUR PHONE


Your phone should be the LEAST of your worries on your wedding day. Put it aside and try not to go on it. If it's easier for you, turn it on do not disturb, and use it for pictures! It's not a fun feeling when people are blowing up your phone on your wedding day, trust me!



04. MAKE A BRIDE EMERGENCY KIT


A bride emergency kit is going to be your holy grail! This emergency kit can include a sewing kit, tide sticks, extra buttons, flat shoes, makeup, and anything that might make your day easier. It's great for backup plans in case anything goes wrong! You'll thank me later. (;



05. BREATHE


Take a moment and BREATHE. While you're getting ready, take a moment to focus on your breathing, and when you are at the ceremony or reception, soak in the moment! If you have stress or anxiety, it's easy to forget what's happening and not be in the present moment.

KIND WORDS


" Heather is such an incredibly talented photographer! I spent countless hours searching for a wedding photographer that would be the right fit for us. I ended up finding her site and fell in love with the feel and quality of her photos, and her prices are so reasonable. She came all the way to Chicago where we live to do our engagement photos. She and Mikhail were so flexible, we rescheduled our engagement photos three times due to COVID-19 and she was so supportive each time, wanting it to be perfect for us. Our engagement and wedding photos blew us away and exceeded our expectations. Heather was such a joy to work with. I can't recommend her highly enough!"
