Every wedding is different with each couple having their own preferences for the size, look and feel of their wedding. But with all the details that you need to put together, there are certain aspects of your wedding that you need to prioritize no matter how big or small it might be.
Of course, all the different details of your wedding is important in the sense that you need to be able to choose dependable suppliers who can give the kind of look / taste you want and will not give you any problems during your big day.
However, the thing with these top 3 to prioritize is how they have quite an effect on the other details of your wedding on the big day and in the long run.
Without further ado, here are our tips on the top 3 things to prioritize for your wedding:
Hair & Makeup Artist
For brides, it’s important to get the right make-up right for such an important and memorable day. No matter how simple or grand your gown is, your make up can make or break your overall look. Good make up gives an aura of elegance even with a simple gown, and bad make up will not do justice for an amazing gown lovingly made by your chosen designer.
Your face is the main focus of your physical appearance for that special day and good make up will enhance and complement your bridal glow. Your face is what everyone – especially your groom — will be looking at as they anticipate your every expression & emotion. Don’t let them get distracted by an unnatural discoloration on your face where it’s starkly whiter than the rest of your body.
Of course, there’s the case of using the right waterproof eyeliner and mascara for the bucket-loads of joyful tears you might end up unleashing.
Getting the right hair & make up artist means getting a professional who knows how to give the look you want and not make you look like someone else. It’s important that you get a professional who knows how to work with your skin tone and facial features to enhance it.
Unless you’re 100% confident of the capabilities of your chosen make up artist, it’s best to go for a trial make up before finalizing your make up artist for your big day. You can set the trial make up session for when you do you prenup photo sessions, that way you can also explore different looks you might want to choose from.
Photo &/or Video Supplier
It’s important to get the right photographer and/or videographer to capture your wedding celebration.
In relation to point #1, a wise photographer (JMO) said, “Invest in a good photographer so that your great make up will not be put to waste. Investing in a good photographer but not a good makeup artist leaves you with a good photo of you with bad makeup.”
The bottom-line about choosing the right photo &/video supplier is that, after all the hustle & bustle of the planning and expenses to get the details right for your wedding, the only thing that will be left with you after the big day are the memories and mementos you take with you to share and look back on. Now, for those mementos you want to look back on, it would be good to spend on a good photographer/videographer who will take extra care with putting together those mementos.
And last, but not the least, along with the top priorities when preparing for your wedding is in choosing the right wedding coordinator – that is unless you decide to make it a DIY wedding where you have family & friends ready to take on the important task of coordinating the details for your wedding.
There are a lot of reputable Wedding Coordinators in the country who are truly tried and tested in terms of efficiency and making the couple feel taken cared of during the preparation and worry-free during the big day. Then there are also the ones who may be new to the industry and are still learning the ropes of wedding coordination.
This makes it better to do your research to ask feedback from people you know who may have worked with a particular coordinator or look through the net for online reviews about them. It’s in these cases that wedding communities can really help you since fellow brides love to help one another.
The importance of getting a wedding coordinator you can rely on is on how they’ be able to make your wedding day worry-free for you, your family & your guests. In case of any problem or last minute changes that need to be done, an efficient wedding coordinator will be able to take care of things for you.
