Tips from Experience: AVS wedding Photography-
Yes! We know that its wedding time and there is a lot to be done. You are panicking as things are not going as planned. But pause for a while, take a deep breath (if one deep breath doesn’t work, take many deep breaths) and RELAX!
The stress and pressure are not going to make things happen. So pause and relax.
Try to jot down each and everything to organize everything, so that you can check out everything that has been taken care of. There will be slip ups but don’t worry, try to minimize the slip-ups by jotting down and organizing everything.
That’s right, you can’t do everything all by yourself. To create a list of relatives & friends who could be a good resource and delegate the tasks to them. Look for friends who recently got married, they have been through the same and they may share the list of vendors and contacts. Most people love to be part of the game, so they might excitedly agree to participate and work for you. So hey, you got a team who will be working for you.
- Follow up
This is very important! If you want to streamline everything you need to follow up with the people to whom you have assigned the task to make sure everything is on track and nothing comes up at the 11th hour.
- Give Time to Yourself
Yes! in all that hustle and bustle, don’t forget yourself. Get yourself a manicure, pedicure & spa treatments. Spend time with your family and your fiancé or fiancee. Someone with whom you are planning to share your life with. It’s their wedding too, so share, discuss and spend time with each other together.
- SLEEP & EAT Well
No matter, what the circumstances are, there is ONE most important thing that you must do is, EAT well and SLEEP well. On your wedding, you are the most important person. Selection of the chair color or the choice of flowers can wait. If you are not well nourished, your skin will look tired and no matter which makeup artist you choose or what products they choose, it will still show up in your photos.
- Keep Hydrated
For your skin’s sake, stay hydrated, with all the anxiety bursting up, and with so many tasks to do. One thing that we all tend to forget is staying Hydrated! And by saying “hydrated” we as your photographer wouldn’t recommend taking alcohol and caffeinated drinks. In fact, we would suggest you stay away from caffeinated and alcoholic drinks.
Do take plain water and fresh juices. Despite the fact, that as the festivity time approaches, you would also like to enjoy a glass or two. Or the anxiety and the pressure would force you to gulp on caffeine drinks. IT SHOWS on your wedding day.
So enjoy plenty of water and fresh juices.
- Enjoy the Moment!
In the end, the one great advice we would give you is no matter for how long you have been planning for, and what resources you have put in. Something will surely not be the way you planned. It might go exceptionally well or may fall behind in some area.
Remember, all weddings are beautiful. It’s a time where two people come close, tie their knot and vow to share their love and lives together.
No matter what goes wrong, weddings are immensely beautiful. It’s the love that binds together. So even if things are not going well together, doesn’t matter, pause and re-plan it. Enjoy the moment.
