You may have attended more than a dozen weddings in the last year or so, but nothing can prepare you for when it’s your time to walk down the aisle. Yes, it will be picture perfect with dreamy flower installations, just like you’d imagined. But there’s more to it than just the bridal outfit and the decor. Weddings are drama, they are sprinkled with tons of emotions, they are full of unexpected incidents and tiny glitches that only make the event more memorable. Here are 10 things no one tells you about your wedding day… but we are!
1. Your cheeks will hurt
You will wake up smiling. You will smile all day. You will smile even when your lipstick and highlighter is being applied. In short, you would be smiling all day. By the time your ceremonies start, your cheeks would already start hurting because of all the smiling.
