Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties: If this is something that makes one or both of you uncomfortable, it doesn’t need to happen. Plan a dinner party, club night, concert, or a fun weekend (or even week) trip with the entire wedding party instead.
First Look Photos: Yes. Yes. Yes! We love them! Why wait to see each other for the first time in front of 100 of your closest friends and family? Have a private moment (with a photographer to capture it) for raw, honest and heartfelt emotions. Those photos will mean so much to you later on.
Choreographed First Dances: Take dance lessons. You won’t regret it! It’s an activity to do together, it gets you away from the stress of wedding planning, and it will be most likely be fun. Really! Give the guests something to look at. No one wants, or really cares to see you huddled together and turning slowly for 4 minutes and twenty seconds.
Wedding Cake (or Not):
Matching Bridesmaids Dresses:
Maid of Honour and Best Man:
Dinner and Dance Reception: Opt for a breakfast or a brunch instead.
