What I Wish I'd Know When I Was a Bride...

Being a bride or groom-to-be can be hard work and so we asked some of our lovely brides who've had their own gorgeous weddiings featured on our blog for the advice they would give to other brides 

ONE Don’t feel pressured into doing things a certain way – it’s your wedding day so do it how you feel best represents you. Abby

TWO Relax and keep perspective – don’t stress over little details that no one will notice. Frances

THREE Surround yourself with calm people on the morning of the wedding.  I loved getting ready with my bridesmaids and having such a lovely photographer and hair and make-up person made it completely stress-free. Gabriel

FOUR As cliché as it sounds relax and soak it all up, take time to just be together and take it all in, don’t get caught up on the little things, have trust in the people around you and remember that what is most important and most wonderful thing in it all is the commitment your making to each other. Shelley

FIVE Don’t worry too much about trying to spend time with everyone. Just make sure you enjoy your day and people will come to you. They will be having just as much fun as you. Kirsty

SIX Try and take a moment alone with your new husband. Without realising you can spend a lot of the day apart. We didn’t even get a picture together in the photo booth! Kirsty

SEVEN Have fun and try and soak up every second – it’s true that the day flies! Frances

EIGHT DIY As much as you think you can handle – we loved it, it made it all so much more personal and we all kind of bonded over it. Abby

NINE Make sure you book a videographer!  Watching our wedding back was great as you do miss things throughout the day and you then have those memories forever! Gabriel

TEN The little details, although stressful are absolutely worth it, so take the time to personalise your wedding.  Claudia
