Hav­ing worked in PR, mar­ket­ing and events for ten years, uber­tal­ented Susie founded her award-win­ning wed­ding plan­ning com­pany in 2013 1 Wear your wed­ding shoes in, and pack some fancy flats. There’s noth­ing worse than sore feet a few hours into your wed­ding day. Along with that, pack a ‘care kit’ that you can have a brides­maid look af­ter, for any lit­tle touch-ups through the day and evening. 2 Next time you’re at a wed­ding, count up the number of left­over favours at the end of the evening. If you’re on a bud­get, they’re some­thing you can pop into ‘Op­tional Ex­tras’! 3 It’s nice to layer up the en­ter­tain­ment in the evening, so con­sider book­ing a photo booth or hav­ing a dress­ing-up box for the dance floor with some silly props. The thrill of the photo booth never dies! 4 Along with the first dance, get a group ‘last dance’ tune de­cided. It’s such a fun and mem­o­rable way to round off the big day. 5 A wed­ding takes many hours to plan and set up, so be re­al­is­tic with what’s man­age­able along­side your work­ing/fam­ily life, and see what ad­di­tional sup­port you can call on – whether it be from a trusted wed­ding plan­ner or sup­port­ive fam­ily mem­ber. 6 Don’t for­get the de-rig! Once the confetti has set­tled and ev­ery­one’s gone home, there’s a wed­ding to pack up. Make sure you get oth­ers to do this for you as you want to be en­joy­ing your first day of mar­i­tal bliss, not lost in boxes, tapes, lug­ging and lift­ing.
