In honor of keeping things light and fun, we've put together a list of the top eleven wedding hacks that are guaranteed to make your big day MUCH easier.
1. Hide A Large Sheet Cake In The Kitchen To Serve To Your Guests
This way, you can purchase a smaller decorative cake that will be much more budget-friendly!
2. Number Your RSVP Cards
Sometimes, guests forget to put their names on their RSVP cards - either that, or their handwriting is pretty much illegible. Writing small numbers on the backs of your RSVP cards and making yourself a cheat sheet will ensure that you always know who has RSVP'd.
3. Get A Wedding-Only Email Account
Having a wedding-specific email account will allow you to keep RSVPs, guest questions, and correspondence with vendors in one easy-to-access space. Plus, you and your new husband can use it for joint bills or other accounts after you're married!
4. Invest In Veil Weights
If you're planning a wedding outdoors (or simply taking some photos outside), purchase some veil weights to keep your veil from blowing around in the wind. You'll be glad you did!
5. Wear A Button-Down Shirt While Getting Your Hair And Makeup Done
You're paying good money to make sure your hair and makeup look absolutely perfect on your wedding day - don't risk messing them up by pulling a shirt over your head when it's time to get dressed.
6. Break In Your Wedding Shoes Before The Big Day
Any woman can attest to this: all new shoes need to be broken in! If you have purchased a new pair of shoes especially for your wedding, do yourself a favor and start wearing them around your house now!
7. Run A Wire Hanger Along Your Dress To Eliminate Static Cling
Static cling is problematic on any dress, and wedding dresses are no different. Don't let it bring you down on your wedding day! Running a wire hanger along your dress will get rid of the cling, and it's much cheaper than a static-removal product!
8. Tuck Tissues Into Your Bouquet
Weddings are (obviously) pretty emotional events. Do yourself a favor and tuck a few tissues into your bouquet for easy access if need be. (Don't forget to wear waterproof mascara, also!)
9. Use A Damp Sponge To Seal Envelopes
Licking envelopes to seal them is never fun - especially if you have to send out hundreds of save-the-dates, invitations, and thank you cards! Use a damp sponge to save your tongue from all the trouble. Glue sticks work well, too.
10. Sew Your Bra Into Your Dress
You have enough to think about on your wedding day without having to worry about whether or not your bra straps are showing! Save yourself the hassle and ask your seamstress to sew a strapless bra (of your choice) into your dress. With everything in one piece, you won't have to worry about tucking straps out of sight.
11. Put Together A Wedding Emergency Kit
Despite all our best-laid plans, small emergencies can and do happen. Give yourself piece of mind by putting together a wedding emergency kit for your big day. Include Q-tips, bobby pins, floss, hairspray, safety tips, needle and thread, bandaids, tweezers, chapstick, and white chalk (to cover stains in the wedding dress). Don't forget that WhereBridesGo.com sells pre-assembled wedding emergency kits, too!
Your wedding day will be one of the best days of your life - don't forget to take time to enjoy it! On behalf of the team at WhereBridesGo.com, we wish you and your groom a lifetime of happiness together.
