We’ve seen it all in way of weddings over the last few years. We’ve seen broken high heels, late-starting wedding ceremonies, and missing grooms. So, in hopes of a perfectly smooth wedding day for you (and wedding season for us ;)), we’re dishing out our favorite tips to a smooth wedding day.
If you’re having an outdoor wedding our #1 tip is to…(drumroll please)…wear flats! Yep, that’s right. Or wedges if you need the height for you dress (or the kiss ;)). Heels, while adorable, will sink into the grass and make it hard to walk around on wedding day. And if you’re planning on wearing a thick, puffy dress, you probably don’t want any more difficulty walking than absolutely necessary on wedding day. Flats or wedges will give you the surface area you need to stay on top of the ground instead of sinking in.
#2. Bring an adorable (or clear) umbrella. That’s right. We know you’re watching the forecast and even if there’s no forecast for rain, you just never know what you might need an umbrella for. An umbrella can shield your amazing hairdo from the breeze on a summer afternoon, or provide the shade you need to keep your makeup from melting while you’re waiting on your wedding photos to be taken. It could also be a prop for your photos. A gorgeous neutral umbrella on a sunny afternoon adds some open shade (that your photographer will probably loooove) and add some variety to your photos. And of course, the obvious use, it can keep you dry on a rainy wedding day. We know you’re wishing for the best (and we are too!), but it does rain on Saturdays and Sundays in Georgia. We promise. The good news is that some of the most beautiful wedding days here at Spring Lake happened on rainy days.
