Bride’s wedding day check list

What every bride should remember on her wedding day

The day of your wedding is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable as you get your hair and makeup done, you enjoy the company of your bridesmaids and you are treated like a princess.

Also, if you don’t have a wedding planner, we suggest that you make a list of all your vendors with their contact information in case you need to get in touch with them; as well as have envelopes of cash for any tips and final payments you may want to give your vendors.

Being well organized will make you wedding day a far more pleasurable one and totally stress free.

All the best to you on this your wonderful day!!!
