3 post-wedding to-do’s before your wedding day!

1️⃣ FLOWER PRESERVATION 💐
If you want your flowers preserved fresh, rather than dried, it’s best to send them off right after your wedding day! Plan ahead so you can have them preserved the way you want!

+ Tell your wedding planner (💁🏼‍♀️) your bouquet preservation plans so we can help keep it safe!

2️⃣ DRESS PRESERVATION
Do you want to preserve your wedding dress?? Research some options so you can send it off within the week following your wedding day!

3️⃣ NAME CHANGE
If you’re changing your last name, know that there are many steps in the process. Order 2-3 extra marriage certificates and have your MOH take photos of your signed marriage license the day of to help the process move faster.

Let's chat bridal suite must-haves!! 💍🪡💅🏼

The morning of your wedding will be busy - Here is a list of things to make sure you and your bridal party bring or arrange beforehand!

▫️Light food + snacks - protein bars or mini sandwiches (avoid things that easily stain like chocolate or greasy foods). Think of things that are going to hold you and your girls over for a long period of time - food with substance.
▫️Water - It's VERY important to stay hydrated!
▫️Mimosas - A couple juice flavors and your favorite prosecco!
▫️A steamer - For last minute dress touch ups
▫️Toiletries - Pain killer, feminine care products, hair spray, waterproof mascara, and moisturizer!
▫️ Scissors and a mini sewing kit - (just in case)
▫️ Tide to go or any stain remover pens

❕❕ SAVE this post so you don’t forget!

Save this for when you’re considering your videographer!

Key information to understand, most likely provided in the proposal or contract:
▫️Their style
▫️Hours of coverage and the charge for overtime
▫️If they have a second shooter
▫️Expected length of final film
▫️Turnaround time to receive the film after the wedding
▫️Restrictions for sharing the film and copyright parameters

▫️▫️Additional questions to ask▫️▫️
▫️How do you edit your films- color balance considerations, etc?
▫️What is your backup plan if you get sick or have an emergency?
▫️How do you work with photographers?
▫️Have you ever filmed at my venue before?
▫️Is there anything special we need to do at that venue for lighting?
▫️What will you wear?
▫️How do you manage any conflict with a wedding party or family on the day?
▫️How do you choose the music for the film?

I hope this is helpful and provides some good insight of questions to ask! 🫶🏼

When planning your ceremony, the start time should preferably be no less than 1.5 hours before sunset for the best lighting! Be sure to save this for when you are creating your day of timeline! ☀️

Another trend that we are going to be seeing more of in the coming years is a change in dessert tables!! More couples are switching to favorite desserts and more options vs the traditional wedding cake!

What is your favorite sweet item that you are having at your wedding?? 🧁🍰🍨🥧🍩
