5 things NOT to do at your wedding.

Melbourne wedding photography  video tips

So you have no idea what you should or shouldn’t do at your wedding…  How could you know? You haven’t been married before, haven’t been to many weddings and none of your close friends are married yet.

So what’s appropriate and what’s not?

After being involved with photography and video for literally thousands of weddings in Melbourne, we can say we have a bit of an idea. So here are a few tips that will make your wedding day as beautiful and memorable as it deserves to be:

1. Alcohol

Don’t over drink – especially before the wedding ceremony. We understand the day is about celebrating and it should be. But pace yourself, as well as your bridal party. You don’t want to be drunk at 9 am. It can lead to disaster, so don’t do it.

2. Timing

Avoid running late. Do everything you can to be on time. If you are late for your wedding, everything after will be running late too. It will mean you have less photography time and your wedding reception timetable will be out of whack too. Food could be then overcooked at the reception as chefs run to a certain schedule and if it’s changed at the last minute there is not a lot to be done.

3. Food and snacks

Don’t stop off at McDonalds after the wedding. If you are hungry, get a family member or friend (not someone from the bridal party) to buy food and meet you at the photo location with everything. That means the photography and video can keep on happening. If you are off buying food, there’ll be less photos and photo time. And try to avoid food with tomato sauce. Obvious reasons on that one…….

4. Shoes

Don’t wear your bridal shoes for the first time at the wedding. Wear them in a bit. Weddings can be an 18 hour (or longer) affair, so it is important to make sure your shoes are comfortable enough to wear all day. It may be a good idea to take another pair to change into.

5. Bridal party numbers

Don’t ask too many people to be in your bridal party. If there is too many bridesmaids and groomsmen, it creates problems with choosing dresses and suits (everybody has a different opinion and it makes it harder to please everyone and agree on a style and colour) and finding a wedding car to fit everyone in is sooo much harder.
