Your wedding day is coming up quickly! There are a few “dos” and “don’ts” that I think all couples should know and consider when they get ready on their wedding day.

-DO get ready in a large location where there’s a large window with natural lighting. Natural lighting allows for the best and prettiest images while you get into your dress and put on your wedding jewelry.

-DON’T forget to bring snacks/breakfast foods. Your wedding day is “go, go, go” and you need to make sure you make time to snack and eat breakfast and/or lunch! 

-DO follow your timeline. By following the timeline that has been created by your wedding photographer, it’ll ensure that you are on time and won’t be late for your ceremony and other events throughout the day. At Taylor Maurer Photography, I like to create customized timelines for my wedding couples that are made just for their wedding day.

-DON’T do everything yourself. Your bridesmaids, personal attendant, and even parents are there to help you on your wedding day. Delegate any small tasks so your wedding day is as stress-free as possible for you. This can be steaming your dress and veil, reminding you to snack, putting out the programs, communicating with vendors, and more.

-DO go to the bathroom before you get into your dress. The last thing you’ll want to do is go to the restroom after you’ve been zipped and buttoned into your dress.

-DON’T forget the details. Your photographer will want to photograph your wedding day details from your jewelry, dress and veil, and so much more before the day begins. For a full list of what to provide your photographer for detail photos, click here.

-DO steam your dress and veil. You don’t want wrinkles in your wedding dress, so don’t forget this step! This can be done the day before or a bridesmaid the morning of your wedding.

-DON’T worry! Everything will be okay! If something doesn’t happen as originally planned, the only person who will know something is different is YOU! Your guests won’t notice and will think your wedding is absolutely perfect!
