You might be reading this blog post to make sure that your Wedding Day is as good as it gets. You want things to flow smoothly, happiness to rule every other feeling, and love to be all over the place.
Well, that’s pretty simple. As every other moment in life, it’s about your attitude. Not your fiancé’s, not your parents, nor your wedding planner’s. It’s about your attitude.
If you keep a positive vibe throughout the day and take things easy, everyone will go an extra mile to make sure that things run as they should.
I’d like to talk a little bit about common wedding mistakes that we have had in the past and couldn’t fix, so it doesn’t happen to you:
Mistake #1: Not looking at each other during the ceremony.
We’re there as mere spectators, capturing everything that happens as it happens, and we don’t want to interfere in any way. If you are standing in front of each other during the ceremony, please, please, please look into each other’s eyes. Not our cameras, not the officiant while you read your vows, but to each other’s eyes.
Mistake #2: Placing the rings like they don’t mean anything.
We definitely don’t want you to pose for us to take pictures while you place the rings but do it gently as a ceremony deserves. Look at each other, breath the moment in.
Mistake #3: Sweating the little things.
Your fiancé forgot his socks in the other suitcase. So what? Will that ruin your Wedding Day? No one will notice but you. Expecting everything to be perfect will ruin your moments. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it has to be unique because it is a day in your lifetime and it’s a journey you are starting together. Taking the first steps being angry at your husband is not a good way to start.
Mistake #4: Talking the whole time during the first dance.
This is not for everyone, maybe you want to talk the whole time… but if you are the kind of person that wants romantic images as you dance together for the first time as husband and wife, make sure to enjoy the moment and think about what’s going on instead of chatting the whole time. You’ll really appreciate your pictures holding each other to a slow song.
Mistake #5: Trying to control everything.
I’m positive that every vendor on your Wedding Day knows exactly what he or she needs to do. If you want something done in a certain way, you can mention it and trust people to do it. If it’s a very tiny detail feel free to mention it more than once, but don’t micromanage people on your Wedding Day or you won’t enjoy anything else.
Mistake #6: Thinking the whole time of what’s happening next.
Enjoy the moment. The wedding day takes forever to plan and 12 hours to go away. If you’re not enjoying what’s going on, you won’t be enjoying what’s coming next.
This is a list of things that came to my mind while thinking of our day to day weddings. We’ve been to hundreds of events and the only thing that differentiates a good wedding from a fantastic wedding for us, it’s the couple’s attitude.
Keep a positive attitude and your day will be awesome. We’ve seen everything, from ripped dresses, mustard stains, people forgetting the rings at the room, and weddings that had to be stopped due to heavy rain (I’m talking about 70 guests running away simultaneously here). All of those events ended up in the best way possible, because the Bride & Groom kept enjoying every bit of it, and so did their guests.
