- listen to your mother when she tells you that 2-hours is more than enough time for your hairdresser to get you ready. It's okay to share him.
- remember that the wedding budget is not an unlimited pot of gold. (NB. If you don't take this one seriously, then be prepared for a Butlin's honeymoon in Skegness).
- make sure to ask the Groom-to-be what he thinks. Your wedding is not a one-woman show.
- have a sense of humour. Weddings can be crazy, families can be crazier, and the bride tends to be the craziest of all.
- expect everyone to talk/think about your wedding all the time. They are not
unemployed and obsessive like youlucky enough to have lots of free time.
- spend all day sitting on your arse watching "Three Fat Brides, One Thin Dress". You might find it funny now, but if you don't get up and do some exercise, you might not be laughing in 6 months time when your perfect dress doesn't fit.
- fuss over every tiny little bit of dust on your wedding dress. It's the trail. It trails along the floor. What do you expect?
- spend more time blogging about planning the wedding than actually planning the wedding. (This one might be quite difficult). Having ten more followers won't be much compensation when you realise you've forgotten to order the wedding cake.
Is there anything you can add to this list? I would love to hear your thoughts/advice on how to avoid becoming Bridezilla...
