BOYS.. LEARN TO TIE YOUR TIE!
Funny how many guys realise on their wedding day that they don’t know how to tie a tie!
Gents, Check out this handy iPhone app and impress us all on the day (especially your lady) with your half Pratt, double Windsor with a reverse twist, tie tying prowess.
If you are planning on getting ready at a hotel, also check out serviced apartments. They are generally much roomier, have a kitchen and a few bedrooms. If you have a large bridal party, or will have lots of family around a serviced apartment can a be a great option.
It is absolutely true what people say – your wedding day will fly by at a ridiculous speed. Just relax, take your time and enjoy what’s going on around you. See our tip about “Delegation” and don’t spend your time worrying about the small details.
YOU CAN'T STOP THE RAIN.
Its one of those things you have no control over. So, dont worry about it. We always have a back up plan, and we bring along some big unbrellas just incase. Some of our favourite photos have been taken in the rain. Its no biggie really.
ORGANISE THE FAMILY
Family photos can sometimes end up being a little bit stressful. Whether you want them or not, your parents / grandparents probably do. So, just go with the flow, make a list of the photos you need, and get the folks to check it over.
BRING A SEWING KIT
You would be surprised how many times we have seen the need for a needle and thread! It might be your mothers dress that needs a stitch, or a button that has come off the bridesmaids dress – for the sake of a couple dollars… you may save your self much stress!
DELEGATE. DELEGATE. DELEGATE.
You’ve put your blood sweat and tears in to meticulously planning every detail of your wedding. But, on the big day, its time to step back, and hand the reins over to someone else. Today is not the day to be dealing with every little detail.
WE'RE THE PROS
Sometimes guests miss the key moments of your big day, because they’re busy taking their own photos! We don’t really mind.. but, we think its nice if guests know that you’ve paid us good money to take super photos, so that they can enjoy the day!
TAKE FOOD & DRINK
Make sure you pack some food and drink to take on the photo shoot. We like to keep things fairly relaxed, and give you the opportunity to enjoy your self. Also, your bridal party will thank you for it!
Gents.. if you are hiring suits, make sure you try them on after you have picked them up (and well before the ceremony). Mix ups happen.. and girths widen… Trust us, no guy wants to be trying to do a last minute stitch up.
