Always buy your wedding shoes in the afternoon or early evening when your feet are at their largest. Feet swell during the day.

Cover new wedding shoes with cut off tights, wear them every day for 15/30 minutes to break them in at least a month before the wedding.

Know your body shape before buying the wedding dress. Are you a triangle, circle, rectangle, inverted triangle or hourglass? Know before you buy!

Practice smiling daily so that your face doesn’t hurt on your wedding day! Smiling releases endorphins so you will feel great as well.

Looking for your best angle? Get a friend to photograph you with a digital camera, up-load the photos on your laptop and repeat until you get it right.

Not sure about wearing hair up or down. Do both. Half up, half down. It will give you length and glamour at the same time.

Choose a classic makeup look for your wedding. It’s timeless and will look good in the photos 10 years from now.

Let go of the things you can’t control like the weather and relatives. Focus on the things you can change.

Planning a wedding is great and very exciting but remember to focus on the relationship. Without it there won’t be a wedding.

Take a notebook with you everywhere to keep your mind decluttered. Record everything and decide what to do with  it later.
