There’s no shortage of myths and misconceptions on what to expect on your wedding day. But if you and your fiancé are getting married soon, the last thing you need is to worry about what may or may not happen on the big day! With more than 25 years of experience in the bridal industry, it’s safe to say that we’ve seen our fair share of weddings! From those that are small and intimate, to others that are huge, extravagant events, every wedding is different and special in its own way. However, there are plenty of similarities, too. No matter what type of day you’re planning, here’s a simple guide to what is fact versus fiction when it comes to weddings:

Fact: It will go by fast.

Nearly every married woman you know is likely to tell you that your wedding day will fly by, and they are right! Make a conscious effort to slow down and appreciate the magic of the moment, to steal a kiss from your husband, to eat a sliver of cake, or to chat with your grandparents.

Fact: You’ll forget to eat.

Your wedding day will probably start early with hair and makeup, and go late into the night. Don’t forget to eat! Ask your maid of honor to remind you to eat throughout the day, starting with a healthy breakfast. And make sure you eat that delicious dinner you and your fiancé worked so hard to choose for your guests!

Fiction: You can’t see the groom before the wedding day.

While many couples abide by the decades-old rule that they shouldn’t see each other before the bride walks down the aisle, many are choosing to toss this idea out the window. Instead, lots of couples are coordinating a “first look” photo shoot with the photographer so they can get to the reception quicker and spend more time with guests.

Fact: You’ll be like the center of attention.

It is an indisputable fact that all eyes are on the bride on her wedding day. With the perfect wedding gown and accessories, you will feel absolutely beautiful and will be eager to embrace all the sudden attention.

Fiction: Everyone will do exactly what you want since it’s your big day.

No matter how much planning you do, it’s inevitable that there will a few “issues” throughout the day. Someone in your wedding party may have a few too many drinks and make a fool out of him or herself on the dance floor, the DJ may put on a song you specifically told him not to play, or something else that simply drives you nuts is bound to happen.

Fact: You’ll cry.

Even if you’re usually composed, chances are that you’ll shed some tears on your wedding day. From seeing your groom for the first time, to listening to heartfelt toasts, to watching your parents dance to their own wedding song, the day will be filled with special moments that are tear-worthy.
