Wedding day

Hey all! With only one month to go, I’m looking for any last minute advice on the actual wedding, starting to panic that I’ve missed something! (I’m also 35 weeks pregnant so definitely a case of baby brain too) ????????

Best advice I can give is trust that if you haven't thought of it yet then it isn't worth worrying about.

That being said, my last minute purchases were metallic team bride and team groom tattoos, and an emergency kit for guests in the toilet - headache tablets, plasters, lip balm, hairspray, grips, spray deodorant etc.

Final note, take a beat at the top of the aisle to take it all in. It's the quickest and more important few seconds of the day. Have an amazing time and congratulations! X

Wait. You have 1 month to go until your wedding and are 35 weeks pregnant. wow you are brave!!! Congratulations on both events. Agree with Lauren Collis try not to worry too much if u havent thiught about it till now it wont be essential. In fact only essential things are you, your partner & someone to marry you in front of your selected friends and family. Anything else is just a bonus im sure it will be a beautiful wedding and you a beautiful bride enjoy every second! (I actually ended up getting to our wedding location 20minutes late! but the organisers were so fantastic i didnt have a single clue about it until my husband told me the next morning!!!) Honestly on the day nothing matters except you and your partner xxx

How exciting! Just enjoy, anything that doesnt get done doesnt need done. Something will likely go wrong on the day, big or small but you and your husbands attitude are what make the day. So laugh, enjoy and long as you become a Mrs the day was a success! Congratulations

Oh and if you're having a gift station make sure it's secure, a friend of mine had money stolen from cards on her big day, if not then designate an usher or someone to take the cards to your room or ask your reception to keep them secure behind the bar etc.

Don’t forget your hospital bag!

Honestly the best advice I received was to remember the day is for you and your partner! It sounds silly but you end up worrying about so many other people and how they feel, the food and the decorations... You are marrying the love of your life everything else is second

Also once your there it won't even matter, when I got married I forgot to put out out the evening sweets, our first dance so very unorganised but it didn't even matter I was there, she was there and it was complete. ❤️

Good luck and congratulations!

Hope you’ve got insurance sorted in case you have your baby and need to rearrange or cancel!

Keep your partner with you for as long as you can. Once you separate on the day it's hard to find each other again.

The best advice I got was, do what makes you happy. I agree with everyone else too,
- keep your hospital bag somewhere nearby.
- try and do everything and anything to remain calm, stress can induce labour
- you'll get to spend time with your new husband when you go for pictures together, so don't worry too much about spending time with him.
-I wentround every person who attended both the ceremony and the evening party and I still didn't feel like I spent anytime with anyone. Those that you want to spend time with you will find time to spend with them. Everyone understands you can't spend hours with them, they appreciate the time they do spend with you if you keep it personal, don't just be generic.
- you'll be the happiest you've ever been and it really is the best day of your life. So relax and enjoy it.
Best of luck x
