The Hanger

1. Make sure you bring an appealing hanger for your wedding dress to be photographed with. It doesn't have to be fancy but nicer than a wire hanger.

3.  Ask your cater staff to pack you a to-go-box. When you get to your hotel you’ll be hungry and cake is always a good idea!

The Dress...

4.  Photographers recommend you don’t wear a bra the morning of your wedding – it will leave marks on your back and shoulders that will be visible in pictures.

5.  Designate who is taking what home from the reception. You will be off in the limo but will need someone to take the gifts, food, decor and personal items home.
