My Top Tips for the Bride!

Updated: Jan 3

Sometimes things go wrong...and they do!The best way to combat this is to take a deep breath, stay calm and be prepared. Check out some of my top tips and I can assure you they will all come to good use.



Worst Case Scenarios

I will say it again and again, be PREPARED for any eventuality. Maybe your hair starts fall out of place, stitching has been pulled from your dress, grooms buttons burst off or red lipstick stains on your wedding dress. Get out your emergency bridal kit!! Here is a list of thing you should keep to one side on the day!

  • Bobby Pins

  • Saftey Pins

  • Needle & Thread

  • Scissors

  • Mini Hairspray

  • Baby Wipes

  • Plasters

  • Cotton Wool

  • Tissues



I'm running late!

Okay....so it pretty much expected that the bride will be fashionably late, but what happens if you are late late?! The best way to avoid this is lists, lists are everything!Schedule out your morning, this includes make up, hair and driving from A to B so include this, this way you know exactly what you should be doing at a particular time. Add some buffer time inbetween things that way you know you can relax and enjoy a glass of bubbly!Also let your planner know if you are going over maybe give this job to one of your trusted bridesmaids.




A vendor is missing!

So this is possibly one of the least likeliest thing to go wrong. Make sure you have good contact with your vendors before the wedding so they meet all of your requirments. Always have there contact numbers close to hand on the day.



Rain, well we are in Ireland.

Summer, winter or spring....Does it really matter?No, this is Ireland after all. Chances are it will rain more often than not. But that dosn't mean it will be a total wash out so don't let it dampen your sprits.

If the outdoor shots are important to you may need to be prepared to nip outside with your photographer at unexpected times whenever there is a dry spell. However sometimes venturing outside is worth it because a dark stormy backdrop can look amazing. to ensure you are full prepared bring a pair of wellies and a big umbrella to keep you covered while running from one location to another.



Enjoy it!

More often than not I see couples trying their absoulte best to get around to everyone. It can be a hectic day for so many reasons, but your gesuts will understand this. You should always take a few moments during the day to yourselves and really take it all in, after all it is your wedding day!
