From time to time, we will be posing some Tips and Suggestions to make your Wedding Day flow more smoothly. All too often, we see at least one (or more) of the 10 problems which can hamper an otherwise well-planned day. Today we'll post the first 3 problems in a series.
1. DON'T BE ON TIME - BE EARLY!
The biggest favor you can do for yourself on your Wedding Day is to be ready early. A late start guarantees a frenetic pace in an attempt to recover lost time - and will lower the quality of photography your Photographer will be able to provide for you.
The number one reason why the day starts behind schedule? Hair stylists who underestimate the time necessary to finish their work. If you are planning on having an intricate hair style, we suggest you allow at least 30-45 minutes of a "fudge factor"!
2. ACCESS TO THE CHURCH
Your Photographer may need access to the site where photography will begin as much as one hour prior to the start of photography. Please make sure arrangements have been made to allow your Photographer access before your listed "Start Time".
3. DELIVERY OF FLOWERS
The Bridal Bouquet and Attendants' flowers will be needed prior to the start of any photography. We suggest you call the Florist to make sure flowers will be delivered at least 30 minutes before photos are to begin. This way, even if the Florist is running late, Photography can still start on time without a hitch.
We hope these first 3 suggestions are helpful as you plan your wedding. Look for the next 3 hints in one of our upcoming instalments!
