What advice would you give to future brides to be? Any tips or tricks?
If you start to feel nervous or stressed remember that on the day the guests are your close family and friends who love you and are there to support you.
If someone gets lipstick on their dress you can use hairspray to remove the stain. Saturate the spot with hair spray, let it sit for 10 minutes, then dab it with a damp cloth or sponge. I know this works as one of my bridesmaids got red lipstick on her grey dress and this did the trick and averted disaster!
What do you love most about being married?
When you get married there’s a sense of your relationship deepening, you’ve both made this commitment to one another and there’s a shift in your perspective. You want to do the best you possibly can to make ever day more amazing than the last which makes life pretty wonderful. Calling each other husband and wife is actually pretty cool too!
