15 Things You Shouldn't Do on Your Wedding Day

Your ultimate don'ts on your wedding

Large

There’s no manual or catalog that contains all the “bad” things that will come back to bite you if you decide to play or mess with before your wedding day. But we care about you and we want you to be able to make the best out of what you have. We came up with a list of things that we believe could backfire if you don’t find a way to handle them correctly:

Your ultimate 15 don'ts on your wedding day

1- Trying out new shoes: 

Deciding to so suddenly go for a different pair of shoes right before your wedding is definitely a bad idea because formal shoes aren’t comfortable and they take time before your feet can get used to them. 

2- Getting a makeover:

You’re starting a new chapter of your life and that feeling alone might make you think about changing other things, too. If those “other things” involve the way you look, DON’T go overboard with the revamping no matter the amount of encouragement that you get. Better safe than sorry. 

3- Forgetting to eat:

Skipping meals is like the worst idea in the world! Do you seriously want to feel nauseated and inactive before your wedding? If you’re unsure about what to eat to keep you energized, check out What to Eat on the Morning of your Wedding

4- Bridezilling (It’s a word now):

Trying to boss everyone and throwing unnecessary tantrums are a massive no-no. You need to hold yourself together, not try to take care of everything yourself, and calm down. It’ll work out. 

5- Exhausting yourself:

If you cannot stay still for too long and are used to working out/moving about every day, try to go easy on yourself, especially with everything that is going on. It’s only sensical, no? 

6- Arriving at your wedding too early or too late:

Do not show up at the exact time that you printed on that wedding invitation. Give it another 30 or 40 minutes for the guests to fill up the place. At the same time, do not show your face too late after the guests have already started wondering where you’re at.

7- Stressing over uncontrollable matters:

Learn to laugh things off for Goodness sake because stressing never saved anybody. Yes, some not very desirable occurrences might take place, but that doesn’t mean that your day is ruined or that your wedding will be a total three-ring circus. You gotta have faith in yourself!

8- Disappearing for too long:

Avoid going AWOL at your own wedding because that is just rude and confusing. I mean, it’s one day and we know you can handle it. Show up for the people who showed up for you, unless of course, you need to go off answering the call of nature.

9- Forgetting your partner

You and your partner will be the only two out of hundreds feeling the exact same way on that particular day. Lookout for each other because this whole day is literally a celebration of your love to one another. 

10- Guest mishaps:

Some may show up late, some may not show up at all, others may start some drama, but surely NONE OF THIS is your business. You gotta convince yourself that none of this matters and that none of this affects you in any sort of way. Don’t let anything or anyone crap on your day, not even you. 

11- Packing:

It’s not like it comes as a surprise to you that you should never start packing for the wedding or the honeymoon on your wedding day. Short, sweet, and to the point. 

12- Letting things get out of control:

Yelling and getting mad at people is such a childish act for someone who’s about to take such a mighty step in their life. Close to you or not, let things pass. Think to yourself, what would Buddha do? 

13- Forgetting manners:

You’re an adult, so I think we’d both agree that it’s better to act like one. Everyone will be focused on you that day and this is but a mere fact. So, don’t go acting like a maniac and forgetting what common courtesy means. 

14- Long chats and needless nods:

Do not have long chats with guests and trust me, you don’t want to. At the same time, pay attention to how you end a conversation. Instead of ending a chat with a guest with a pointless nod, thank them for showing up to your wedding! 

15- Dance floor pointers:

Do not let the dancefloor become this vile space that is divided between the bride’s friends and those of the groom’s, each at one end and never interacting with each other because that’s just sad. Also, do not feel pressured to always be in the center of this weird dancing circle that almost always seems to not so magically form itself at every Egyptian wedding. 

All the tips above were provided by couples who have seen it all. Always remember that perfection cannot be achieved as its definition differs from one person to another. May your wedding be as happy as the day you realized that you’re in love.
