We’ve been doing wedding photography in Chennai long enough (10 years to be precise) to understand your worries before the BIG DAY and we know a thing or two about the wedding prep. So, we thought, hey, why not share the wealth?
We’ve listed a few things you can keep in mind. .
#1 You’re not alone
You need to remember that you’re not alone in two situations. You’re not alone in the nervousness you feel and the feeling of uneasiness. Every bride/groom feels this way. With a lot of things to get done on your list, the last thing you need is to worry about worrying. You’re also not alone while organising everything, you have everyone who loves you around you!
#2 Honey, you have only two hands!
A mistake couples make while organizing things is that they take too many responsibilities on themselves. We understand why they do it though. No one can visualize their wedding the way they can so they try to everything but do not bite off more than you can chew. Trust us, you’ll save yourself a headache by delegating.
#3 Get That Planner!
Sure, technology has made it all better with notes applications on your phone. But sometimes, old school ways can go a long way in keeping track of things. Buy a planner and organize your plans by the week. You can also add phone numbers and little notes. The joy you get when you strike them one by one will give you a sense of accomplishment.
#4 If it’s not in your control, don’t waste your time.
This is where planning becomes overthinking. As the day nears and you have most of the things ready, you might start worrying about certain things that aren’t in your control. Please don’t worry about the weather or if enough people will show up right on time or if everything will be 100% perfect. These things are beyond you and worrying about it will make you feel helpless and anxious. Let it go! (Breathe In, Breathe Out)
#5 Always have Backup!
Oh! we can’t stress enough on this. Allocate a page in your planner to make a list of important and indispensable things you’ll need on your big day and make it TWO. Yes, we mean everything. If you have one emergency contact (by that we mean the person who will have a spare bindhi for you), make it two. If you have one candle for the altar, make it two. Being prepared is better than being frantic.
#6 Remember to PARTY!
On your wedding day, all the hard work is done. You’re the star of the day. Forget about everything and just ENJOY. It only happens once. Stop looking here and there to see if everything is in place. Instead, look at us (the camera) and we’ll capture that perfect smile. It’s the greatest day of your life. Carpe Diem!
#7 Remember that you’ll miss it.
When you’re getting everything ready, you might feel like, ‘God! I want to get it over soon. This is too much work.’ But when it’s over, you’ll find yourself missing it all. You’ll miss calling the caterers, the tailor and the decorator and that’s okay. You’ll need a week to recover from the day and that’s a beautiful time. We’ll help you remember your day, don’t worry. We’ve got cute pictures of you!
