Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life. You want to be able to enjoy and cherish each moment. Here are some tips that will help to make you day run smoothly.
If you live in Cairns or Port Douglas, you know that the weather can be so unpredictable. Rather than having to make last minute plans, just expect it to rain! Its not the end of the world if it rains! Rain creates an atmosphere of its own at weddings, so expect it – after all, we live in the tropics!
If you are flexible when it comes to planning the ceremony and reception time, it would be a good idea to talk with your photographer about your photography needs and when to get the best photography light. There’s nothing better than sunset lighting along a beautiful beach in Port Douglas!
Long speeches can kill momentum and cause all sorts of problems for your schedule!
Talk with your photographer about what kind of photos you want, any special photos that are a must have, and your timeline for the wedding. Talk to your parents, family, and bridal party about where to be and when for any photos. Remember to ask for help from family and friends. Whether its help carrying an eski full of drinks to the beach or tidying up after the ceremony, most people are only too happy to lend a hand!
This is especially important if you are having a wedding in the tropics! Whether your wedding is in Cairns, or in Port Douglas or Palm Cove, chances are you will be outside some of the time. You will need plenty of cold drinks available as it may be very hot!
Have a bag of multi sized safety pins, bobby pins, needle and thread, and two sided tape available.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to choose someone that you feel comfortable with! Get to know them first and make sure they know what you want for the day.
