On your wedding day there’ll be loads of things you need to do but then there are just some things better left to someone else. Here’s our top five things you can’t do on your big day……

1. Not be the centre of attention

No-one likes a show-off, except when it’s your wedding day. Then you’re allowed. Well actually it’s sort of expected. Everyone is there to see you. What you’re wearing, what you’re saying, whether you’re smiling or crying. All the details are crowd pleasers and then some. However if you’re normally a little shy then believe us when we tell you that on your wedding day you’ll be mighty miffed if all eyes aren’t on you. We can guarantee it.

2. Wear uncomfortable shoes

I wrote this part safe in the knowledge that no right minded female would want to hobble about on her wedding day, desperate to sit down and take her shoes off. However it seems I could be completely wrong. Joanne’s opinion is “who cares if your feet hurt when you’re wearing Jimmy Choos”. Indeed. So if you’re throwing caution to the wind and wearing shoes to die for just have a comfy pair on standby.

3. Be the Wedding Co-Ordinator

“Ermm we have a problem’ is not words you want someone to utter to you on your wedding day, especially if you’re trying to manage it all on your own. If you have lots of DIY elements to bring together then think about hiring in a professional. Now this seems an obvious plug for our “Dolly on the Day” service but we really believe it is essential if you don’t want to be playing the role of ringmaster while posing for your wedding pics. Being as relaxed and stress free as possible is key to having a great day. Trying to squeeze in lots of little jobs just won’t be possible. Pull your wedding day job list together as soon as you can and be realistic about what you can manage to do without extra help.

4. First Kiss Cringe

Now it’s a wedding so everyone is expecting romance and the odd PDA but toes will be curling if your first kiss is, shall we say, intimate. Save that for later….much later. Just think “Royal Wedding Balcony kiss” and you’ll be on the money.

5. Leave your hair & make-up trial until the morning of the wedding

Always, always, always have your hair and make-up trial well before the wedding. You might think you only want simple make-up but once you’re in your wedding finery your “Saturday night pub” look just might not make the grade. By then it’s too late to do anything about it. A trial with a professional will be money well spent and save any stress on the morning of your wedding. Your wedding photo’s will be there forever – do you really want to look at them thinking you could have done with a bit more concealer? No.

Happy Planning!

Wedding Planning

We’re very excited today to bring you our latest wedding competition, mainly because you’re winning us!

We’ve teamed up with Your Kent Wedding Magazine to offer you the chance to win The Wedding Dolls for all your wedding planning needs, by way of our fabulous wedding rescue package.

The Kent Wedding team said “Organising the big day can take an incredible amount of time, and you may find it difficult to plan it all on your own. That’s why a wedding planner can help no end. We’re introducing The Wedding Dolls, aka Emma and Joanne, who advise couples on how to realise their big-day dreams.

Joanne explained “Whether soon-to-be weds are in need of inspiration, are time-strapped or would like some ideas on how to keep within budget, we can help them to plan their nuptials in style. And, once the big day arrives, it’s so satisfying to see everything come together. We will meet with the lucky winning couple to review their plans and get them back on track with a bespoke schedule to follow and then three weeks before the big day we’ll meet with them again to finalise their plans and then be there on the day for 8 hours to make sure everything runs smoothly.

What are you waiting for! Find out more and enter the competition here now!
