As wedding photographers, we always lay stress upon adhering to a timeline to keep your big day smooth and perfect. But today, in this blog, I am going to say something different. I would say don’t forget to enjoy your special day and make the most of it by being too strict about your wedding day timeline.
It’s your wedding day. It’s that one special day that won’t come back for you and your love. It goes by so fast that often couples wish they could have slowed down to enjoy it. So let your WEDDING DAY TIMELINE BE A GUIDELINE and not something written in stone.
Take it Easy, Soak in Your Wedding
Cross things off the to-do list as soon as possible so you can spend the actual wedding week slowing down and being in the moment. A rested week will make the wedding even more fun and enjoyable!
Even in an elopement, consider adding extra time/days – a multiday wedding – to celebrate and spend quality time with your love. Do things you two love to do together or simply spent time with each other without feeling rushed or pushed around.
Disconnect to connect. Disconnect from all “distractions”, things that are unnecessary for YOU. The gigantic production, the excess, rituals that are not “you” so you can focus on what’s in fact important for YOU.
Even if you are the “go with the flow” type of person, on the wedding day things can be too much. There’s a lot to keep in mind, so being organized and transferring all that’s in your head to a well planned, realistic list will help you feel relaxed. Keep lots of buffer time for your tasks. That way you’ll know that everything is going as planned and you can enjoy the moment.
After the wedding ceremony, spend some quiet time with your partner before heading into the reception. Take a few quiet moments together, in private, to take a breath, soak in the moment, and have some alone time.
Let Your Wedding be a Memorable Day and Not a Marathon
Remember, your wedding timeline is a guideline. A little flexibility goes a long way and is the key to enjoying a wedding day that feels comfortable, natural, and fun.
