5 Questions You Will Forget To Ask Yourself Until Your Wedding Day
Between the chaos of all the wedding planning, us women, we forget making some important questions that we tend to make ourselves right at the moment before the situation is about to happen. These are five important questions whose answers you should you know beforehand to prevent any awkward moments on our special day.
Is it true that someone will have to hold my dress while I pee?
As you know, this is a no brainer answer: it will all depend on the length of your wedding dress. If you have a long ball gown style dress, you will want someone to help you finish the deed; I am pretty sure you wouldn’t want to spoil the beautiful dress after all you spent on it! Also, according to The Knot.com, there is a “pee-ready” Spanx designed with a hole in the right area so you can do whatever you need to do without any help.
What am I supposed to do at the moment of cutting the cake?
This is mostly a very charming moment for the bride and groom. According to tradition, the bride and groom proceed to make the first cut with the groom’s hand over hers. Then, the groom proceeds to make the second cut by himself and he is expected to feed her the piece of cake. As long as you remember this, you won’t have an awkward moment with your loved one. And remember to calm those nerves: we don’t want any cakes slipping and ending up on the floor!
Where do I put my engagement ring during the ceremony?
Well, you have many options should you want to wear your engagement ring during your ceremony. You can either wear it on your right hand so you never have to take it off, or you can remove it at the moment of putting of your wedding band and give it to a family member or friend to hold while the ceremony ends.
Where are we supposed to stand at the altar?
Traditionally, the bride is supposed to stand on the left side along with her friends and family and the groom on the right side accordingly. Now, this will all depend on the culture and religion you were born in: for example, the Jewish community stand on opposite sides of what I just described.
Should I take my shoes off during the reception?
Although I know your feet will be killing you in the middle of the night, the truth is that a barefoot bride never looks glamorous! So, I recommend buying some beautiful ballerina flats that will go according with your wedding dress. That way you’ll look beautiful and comfortable and enjoy the party with a smile on your face; the way it’s supposed to be!
