TOP 10 Things A Bride Should Not Forget On Her Wedding Day

So you think it’s all set? You’ve got it all planned for years, some, since they were teens and yet here comes your wedding day — you thought you had it all figured out but because you were hyped-up, there are these necessary things (which you thought were just small things) which were all left inside your chest of drawers. So you end up like you’re just another upset kiddo throwing some dose of tantrums and outbursts ‘coz it felt like EVERYTHING went wrong because of that one thing you’ve forgotten on your wedding day.

So here are the top 10 things you, as a bride, should dare not forget on your wedding day:

marriage certificate

1. Marriage Certificate — it’s quite absurd how can a sheet of paper could make or break your wedding. So you’d better check everything and make your marriage certificate at the top of your things-to-bring checklist.

 

 

 

 

wedding stylist2. Your right hand — (I don’t wanna use the term personal assistant. *chuckles*) So, this is your day. You look like a queen, smell like a queen and dress like a queen. Even just for a day, you are a queen in your own fairytale. So then, act like a queen and take it easy. However, you couldn’t possibly do this thing if you don’t have someone whom you could send your distress signal like “Hey, find me some tissue”, or “Give me some hairpins”. Your resolve? KEEP CALM and HIRE A RIGHT HAND”.

 

 

make-up kit

3. Make-up kit —  Of course, you don’t wanna look horrid in your wedding day. So, better be ready with the lipstick that suits you, the mascara, and all those make-up stuffs. Remember, you have to look like a queen.

 

 

 

 

tissue

 

4. Tissue —  On your wedding day, chances are, water would diffuse through your skin. Like yes, you might be prone to sweating because of the stress, the room’s temperature or simply because of that panicky feeling. Bring that tissue and be poised all throughout your day.

 

 

 

hair pins5. Hair pins — Nobody is perfect. So is your hairstylist. There would come a point where strands of your hair would stubbornly fall out from your fixed coiffure. Thanks to hairpins — they could hold your hair in place.

 

 

 

 

 

medicine

6. Meds — As they say, “Expect the unexpected”. You don’t know if migraine or dysmenorrhea would attack your system. So then, better be ready with all those tablets.

 

 

 

 

 

shoes7. Comfy shoes for the reception — Gorgeous shoes, if used all night long would definitely mar your feet. Good news is, you don’t have to wear them all night long. Just bring those comfy shoes, enjoy the night and feel comfortable.

 

 

 

 

 

bridal bag8. Bag — Think of other things you might need on your wedding day that I haven’t mentioned here. Now, you can actually bring them all, but the question here is, how could you do that if you have no bags at hand? So then, don’t just prepare everything; GET YOUR BAG READY for the things you have prepared.

 

 

 

 

 

perfect smile9. Smile — And I mean…THE REAL SMILE. I know you can fake your own, but na-ah, NOT THIS TIME in your own wedding day. Don’t forget to wear that real smile. That’s what would really make you look good in the entirety of your wedding day.

 

 

 

 

ring

10. Jewelry — You had your dress in tact, had put some make-up but the question is, do you really look like a queen? Oh well, maybe you’ve forgotten something… and yes, YOUR JEWELRY! Make sure you’ve prepared your earrings, necklace, bracelet and most especially your bridal ring to complete your elegance.

Here at Classic Diamond House, we wish both bride and groom to have a wedding full of enchanting memories!

Before the wedding, it is quite tempting to load yourself with dazzling jewelries that will enhance your aura during the big day.  First, hold your impulsive buying tendency. Be sure to keep this simple tips that will guide you in buying jewelry to accentuate your gown and elevate your beauty.

 1. Find the Complementing Jewelry for your Wedding Gown.

a. The color of gown you’ll be wearing on your wedding day will determine the kind of jewelry that will complement its style.

If you have a pure white gown, pearls, platinum and white gold will complement the color, skip out on the yellow or rose gold accessories because this will outshine the color of your bridal gown.

If you have an off-white colored gown, this fit and blends perfectly with white gold, rose gold and silvers.

If you have an ivory colored gown, you can accentuate the gown with gold jewelry such as yellow and rose gold tones.

b. The cut of your gown will also determine the kind of jewelry that will adorn your neck and your ears.

If you have a strapless or halter gown, emphasize your beautiful neckline, so we suggest not to put much effort on putting on a necklace to bare your neckline and focus on wearing big dangling earrings. To give elegance to the gown, buy earrings such as diamond and semi-precious stones to have that fresh look and sleek look.

If you have a V-neck cut bridal gown, a slim chain with simple pendant can make a nice finishing touch to your bridal gown. If you’d go for classic style, accessorize it with pearl pendant and if you’re a fearless fashionista, you can carry a gown with choker and earrings set to perfectly match for this type of bridal cut.

2. Buy Quality Jewelry that will Last a Lifetime.

Now, that you know the jewelries that will match your gown, the next step to consider is the fashion trend. Make sure that the jewelry you’ll be wearing will have a lasting fashion trend. It is best to be practical and invest on jewelries where you can use in other special occasions or a jewel that will have a vintage appeal as you pass it on to the next generation.

He also stated, “this is a day to remember and honor the first Americans who are the forerunners in creating the country a republic and defend it over the years.”

From the letter of John Adams, the 2nd US president, to his wife Abigail; he reiterated on how the Independence day should be celebrated. He stated that it should be commemorated in a festive manner, he believed that it’s a great anniversary festival in every generations and should be celebrated with pomp and parades, shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from this time forward and forever more. Nowadays, the celebration of Independence day becomes widely known globally since the United States becomes a diverse nation that is compose of people from different walks of life.
