A Caution Sign That Reads “Wedding Ahead”

Hold Off on Your Save the Date Cards

Although your wedding is a very exciting thing and you’ll want to rush off and tell all of your friends and family right away, hold back on sending the save the date cards for a little while. Wait until your guest list is finalised and you are certain about just who you want attending. This way you’ll avoid the potential embarrassment of not inviting people who are expecting a follow-up invitation due to budget constraints or other complications.

Starting Your Hair and Make Up Too Late! 

You want to get your hair and make-up done at precisely the right time so you you’ll look amazing walking down the aisle and taking your vows. Too early and it may fall out of place or your make-up may fade a bit too much.

Rushing the Photos

Apart from your cherished memories, your wedding photos will be one of the biggest reminders of your beautiful day that you will get to keep. So don’t rush your photographer! Allow them to take the time they need to properly capture you and your spouse, the bridal party and your friends and family.
