If you’re planning a wedding, chances are, you want to make sure everything is perfect down to the last detail. You’ve probably seen a few wedding movies in your day where everything goes wrong and the entire ceremony ends up in shambles. Of course, this type of stuff rarely happens in real life, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t prepare for the worst.
Watching a few movies on the Getflix streaming service before the big day will provide you with some valuable information on what you shouldn’t do. That way, you can give yourself a much better chance of getting through your wedding day without experiencing the same fate as characters in these films. As a savvy bride, you should take lessons from these popular movies on what mistakes not to make!
1. Don’t Get Competitive
If Bridesmaids taught you anything, it should be not to get competitive. Plan and hold your wedding ceremony on your own standards and don’t compare it to anyone else’s!
2. Choose a Free and Clear Date
The last thing you want to do is end up booking a wedding venue on the same day as your best friend! As Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway taught us, it’s best to make sure your wedding date is free and clear and no other family/friend events are planned close to that date!
3. Be Careful with Spray Tan
Bride Wars also taught us to be extremely careful when choosing a spray tan for the big event…
4. Don’t Choose a Dramatic Hairstyle
…and to steer clear of dramatic hairstyles just before the big day! Instead go with something elegant!
5. Be Gentle When Choosing Bridesmaid Dresses
Remember…the girls you choose bridesmaid’s dresses for will eventually be choosing a bridesmaid dress for you to wear (well, hopefully).
6. Don’t Be Afraid to Say What You Want
27 Dresses also teaches that you shouldn’t be afraid to say what you want…after all, it’s your big day and it should be everything you ever dreamed.
7. Don’t Hire Jennifer Lopez
Never, ever, under any circumstances, hire Jennifer Lopez to plan your wedding.
8. Don’t Underestimate Yourself
The Wedding Planner also has an important lesson for brides-to-be: never underestimate yourself. As long as you’re having fun and being yourself, everything will work out in the end.
Taking cues from the best wedding movies out there, you can avoid some seriously embarrassing (and sometimes funny) mistakes!
