4. Dedicate Plenty of Time for Pictures

Make sure you dedicate plenty of time for the pictures you desire! While your photographer will get candid pictures during your getting ready process, set aside an hour for the posed pictures of you and also with your girls. Also, try to take the majority of your pictures before the ceremony. Your guest want to celebrate you so don’t keep them waiting too long! Make sure you are there to thank them.

5. Take Time to Yourself

Although you will be around many people on that day, make sure you spend some alone time before your ceremony begins. While this day is exhausting and draining, make sure you take a deep breath. Pray, meditate and focus on all the reason why you love your spouse. Today is ultimately about you and him. Remember that above all the chaos and noise. Today is the day to celebrate YOUR love for each other.
