Things Past Brides Wish They Hadn’t Forgotten | PART 1 OF 2 MMW 186



Discover the Tips and Regrets From Past Brides - Part 1 of 2 Podcast Episodes.

I know that every bride, groom, and couple worries about what they might forget during wedding planning. Today, I'll be sharing a list of things that past brides wish they hadn't forgotten. I've compiled this list after listening to many brides, and I can't wait to share it with you.

This week's episode is just the first of a two-part series because there's so much valuable information to cover. In this episode, I'll be listing some fun and seemingly insignificant things that may not mean much but can still make your day more enjoyable. They won't ruin your day, but it's good to know them for a smoother experience.

In the following episode next week, I'll be sharing a list of things that are more crucial to remember and can significantly impact your wedding day and the days after. So make sure you tune in for both episodes and have a pen and paper handy to jot down the tips.

At the end of next week's episode, I have a special surprise for you—a tip that I've never shared before, something new and brilliant that I believe you'll find incredibly useful.

Now, let's dive into today's topic. These may be small details, but they can add up and enhance your wedding day experience. Here are 14 items that many brides mentioned they wish they had taken care of before their big day.

  1. Power board and extension cord for getting ready: With so many devices and hairstyling tools needing charging, a power board can be a lifesaver.

  2. Cake knife: Don't rely solely on the venue for this. Make sure you have a beautiful cake knife for your photos.

  3. Second dress for dancing: Consider having a lighter dress for dancing to stay comfortable and cool during the celebration.

  4. Try the stick-on bra beforehand: Ensure it works well and won't cause any unexpected issues.

  5. Toothbrush and toothpaste: Keep your breath fresh and ready for all the talking, hugging, and kissing.

  6. Hair spray for touch-ups: Wind and dancing can take a toll on your hairstyle, so having hairspray on hand is essential.

  7. Floor-length mirror: Appreciate your entire look and help others get ready as well.

  8. Fabric tape for boutonnieres: Prevent them from flopping forward and looking disheveled in photos.

  9. Pretty hanger for the wedding dress: Ditch the plastic hanger for a more aesthetically pleasing look in photos.

  10. Dancing shoes: Ensure you can dance the night away comfortably without ruining your main wedding shoes.

  11. Blotting sheets: Keep yourself shine-free in all the photos with these handy sheets.

  12. Sunscreen for the bridal party: Protect exposed skin from sunburn, especially if your ceremony is outdoors.

  13. Extra mascara for tears: Stay prepared for any emotional moments that may cause mascara to smudge.

  14. A little makeup bag: Include touch-up essentials like lipstick, foundation, and powder for a fresh look throughout the day.

And that wraps up this week's list! These small items can make a big difference in your wedding experience. Remember to join us next week for a more critical list that can impact your big day and beyond, along with a fantastic new tip that you won't want to miss.
