Debunking Wedding Myths For You
This is a fun one. There are loads of myths and superstitions surrounding weddings. I'm sure I'll make more of these over time but I wanted to start with 3 really good ones!
People will tell you all sorts of things, in fact, you've probably already been told this needs to happen then that needs to happen in order for your day to run smoothly. It's simply untrue.
Some people will offer bad advice about cutting corners on your wedding day. Always take their advice with a pinch of salt. You may live to regret it otherwise.
Anyway. Here are my 3 Wedding Myths for today. Like I said, I'll probably do more of these (providing it's well received) in the future, so be sure to let me know your thoughts on this article
1) Hiring Your Friend "who does a bit of..." Is The Same As Hiring A Pro
This one I'm very passionate about. In fact, I've written extensively about it in the past and I'm sure I'll write extensively about it in the future! It's simply not worth hiring anyone other than a pro to do something for your wedding day.
It's the most important day of your life and you want to treat it that way. If you're not going to hire a professional to take photographs on your special day you may well live to regret it.
The same applies for other things too. Just because Uncle Joe claimed to be a member of the Magic Circle, doesn't mean he should be doing card tricks at your wedding. Or maybe your brothers friend DJ'd the School Prom. That doesn't mean he's going to be able to get your Evening Reception popping and get everyone on the dance floor!
If you want your special day to be remembered then you'll hire the professionals.
2) What You Say Goes
While technically this is correct. Whatever you say will go, that doesn't mean that it should. You have to create an atmosphere where you are surrounded by professionals in the wedding industry (refer to Myth 1) and then listen to them.
We are here to make your day the best it can possibly be. We will always be there to lend a helping hand.
If, for example, you wanted to a long flowing dress, with a large train, but you also wanted to come into the ceremony on a donkey, we would be able to suggest ways to achieve that, or perhaps offer alternatives.
I understand this is an extreme example and most people would never suggest it, we are here to problem solve for you.
A more realistic example may be having the magician perform at the same time as the band. That's not always the smartest move because the sole reason you hired the band is to get people to the dance floor. The magician would be preventing that. Not to mention the noise levels making the magic extremely difficult to understand.
3) Traditions Must Be Followed
The old adage of "rules are there to be broken" has never been more apt than for a wedding! That's exactly what they are for. You want your wedding day to be remembered by all your guests right?
That's important, so if you do what everyone else is doing 'because it's tradition' doesn't always make it memorable. Make your day stand out by doing something different!
I hope you've got some use from these. I will do more of these so keep you eyes peeled for future installments!
All the best,
