Go basic and natural for your pre-wedding photoshoot

This idea of “going basic and natural” kinda goes for all sorts of things here. Let’s start with make-up. There is no real need to go for the full wedding day look. Some brides even choose to do their own makeup, hair and nails for the pre-wedding photoshoot. If you’re not too picky, the same can apply for the choice of outfit. So, you don’t really have to rent gowns or suits! By having a casual themed pre-wedding photoshoot, you can show up with outfits you already have. This saves you some money too!

Rent a wedding gown

A brand new made-to-measure wedding gown is gonna set you back a couple of dollars. So, if you’re not to keen on purchasing your own wedding gown, rent one instead.

Stock up on veil weights

This one is specifically for those who’ve decided to be outdoors – whether for the pre-wedding photoshoot or the actual wedding ceremony. As much as we can predict the weather, Mother Nature can throw up some random weather patterns at times. So, it’s always good to have veil weights on hand. You don’t wanna end up looking through your wedding photos and realise your veil is blowing around in the wind.

Switch to e-wedding invites

Sending out wedding invites can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when you need to inform your wedding venue about the number of tables required and your guests have yet to reply you. That’s why e-wedding invites are the way to go. It’s fast and easy for guests as well as hosts. Not only does this method of invitation saves you time, it also saves you money. Printing costs are totally removed with e-wedding invites. Also, always good to go green, minimise your paper trail and reduce wastage. Greta Thunberg will be proud.

Avoid the big “w-word”

Once the word “wedding” is attached to a particular service, somehow the price tends to skyrocket. It seems to apply to any kind of service – be it photography, florists, bakery. What we suggest is to avoid throwing around the word “wedding” as you are browsing for rates! Or don’t fall too easily into the trap of wedding package promotions. Be a little more discerning and see if you actually need all the services included in any given wedding package promotions before committing to one.

Have heel protectors ready

Now that you’ve decided on your outdoor wedding, you’re insistent on wearing stilettos on your big day. Fair enough but please slip on heel protectors! With stilettos on, it’s already hard enough walking on level ground. When you’re on grass, walking gets just that little bit trickier. Heel protectors will increase the surface of the base of the heel – sure to make your life a whole lot easier. Get your heel protectors here!

Insect repellent or perfume?

Alright, it seems that outdoor weddings can be quite a hassle. Now, we have to worry about insects too. You do not want to end up slapping your thighs or shooing off mosquitos as you walk down the aisle. Not quite the demure and elegant look you previously envisioned. Luckily enough, there are perfumes that doubles as insect repellants. This way, the insects will stay away and you smell good throughout your big day.

The powers of table salt

This is one wedding hack we just learned and it will definitely come in handy! Table salt will work wonders should you spill red wine onto your dress. Of course, let’s hope you don’t spill red wine – or anything for that matter – but we gotta prepare for the worst, right? Table salt will help to draw out a good amount of the red wine right away. The remaining stain can be treated professionally later.

Don’t resort to last minute purchases or planning

This is quite possibly the biggest hack (or advice, whatever you wanna call it) anyone can give to you. Yes, it’s not entirely mind-blowing but it’s something many overlook – the importance of planning well in advance. The golden rule to keep in mind is that, the earlier bookings for florists, caterers, venues are made the higher chances are to come across budget deals. Last minute purchasing or planning tends to bring about more costs. This may then lead to more emotional roller coaster rides. So, stay calm and stay ahead of the storm. Happy planning!
