3. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH DREAM TEAM OF EXPERTS

This wedding day tip one of the most important. Prioritise finding the best fit for you. The right personalities and how you vibe together are key. Wedding planner, photographer, videographer, floral designer, baker – you must trust and believe in them! They will do their best to stay true to your vision and you will enjoy the day.

4. WEDDING ATTIRE IS IMPORTANT

Bride and Groom look is kind of manifest of the whole wedding vision. Work with a stylist to capture your personality with your wardrobe. 

5. GIVE YOURSELF MORE TIME THAN YOU THINK YOU NEED

Time gaps between the important events and not rushing from one place to another can make a difference between feeling under pressure or being relaxed and enjoying yourself.

6. ENJOY THE DAY

Out of all wedding day tips this shouldn’t be mentioned at all. Well, sometimes we dive more into taking care of others and forget ourselves. That special day usually goes so fast – so live in the present. It’s counter-intuitive, but drop the expectations you had before and just have fun with your beloved one, family, and friends. If something will not go according to the plan, imagine as you are part of a jazz band where everybody is having fun. So go with the flow and improvise.

7. THE DAY WILL TELL THE STORY OF YOU TWO

The perfect wedding is the one that is about you. Don’t be afraid to express your true self. Know that if you will be and look like yourself and not someone you wish you were, then you’ll look and feel your best! 

8. BE ON TOP OF YOUR GAME

You set the mood for the celebration. The energy level that you will share with your guests will reflect in the whole vibe of the event and photographs will show it as well. But again, if you’re high spirited – show it or if you’re calmed nature – relax and enjoy. There’s no need to pretend and pose.

9. AVOID PROPS AND CLICHÉS

Focus on natural landscapes, light, florals, fashion, make-up. Use the surroundings in different ways and perspectives.

10. EXACT POSE DOES NOT MATTER

The minute the photographer starts orchestrating – the magic vibes are gone. Follow the flow of the moment rather than try to fit yourself to the frame. Smile, play, laugh or cry…The world is your playground, so have it your way.
