Wedding Day Tips that Every Bride Should Know!

As a professional DJ, I’ve had the privilege to be involved in a lot of weddings over the years.  I could  write a book about all the wonderful things I’ve seen and been involved in, but I’d have to dedicate  at least a chapter to the things that haven’t exactly gone to plan on the big day. As I don’t plan on writing a book (yet!), here are a few hints and tips I’ve picked up along the way to make sure you have everything under control.  And sorry guys… these are just for the girls.

It doesn’t matter how vigilant you are throughout the day, there will come a time when somebody, somewhere, is likely to stand on your train or spill a drink over your dress.  I’ve seen it happen so many times; a perfectly poised bride reduced to panic. The first time a bride asked me if I had any chalk, I assumed she wanted to rewrite the specials board, but I was wrong. It’ll apparently  disguise a multitude of stains on a wedding dress, so make sure you include some in your emergency kit. (Brides have those too, so it seems.)

While I’m on the subject of stains, they say a red wine stain can be removed by tipping a glass of white wine straight on top of it. Please don’t take my word for this…I’m just passing it on!

Being a DJ, I obviously love music. And I love to watch people dance and see them having fun. But I’ve learned over the years that some dresses just aren’t designed to be danced in. Having seen a few red-faced brides with their bodices around their belly-buttons, it may be worth investing in some fashion tape. I’ve heard it sticks clothes to skin and will prevent any embarrassing moments.  You could tuck it into your emergency kit next to the needle and cotton you’ll need for those broken clasps and loose buttons. (I’ve seen a few of those, too.)

Now this last piece of advice is of a rather sensitive nature, but it’s one of the funniest yet most ingenious ideas I’ve ever heard, so it would be rude of me to not pass it on. As a guy, I’ve often wondered why women tend to go to the ‘ladies room’ in groups, and although I still don’t know the answer to that question, I DO know why a bride with a flouncy dress always takes a friend along. With yards of material to deal with, I’ve heard it can be rather difficult trying to position yourself on the toilet, ensuring everything is gathered up and out of the way. The trouble is, using this method tends to result in unwanted creases and all sorts of other problems. So here’s the answer. Apparently…ahem…you need to face the other way. That’s right; you walk into the cubicle forwards and sit down facing the toilet. Simples.

On that note, I think I’ll wrap this up. I hope I’ve been of some help!
