6 Things a Bride Can Get Away With Only On Her Wedding Day

1. Drinking A Mimosa... Or Two

Having a little champagne first thing in the morning probably isn’t something you usually do,but on your wedding day, you can get away with it. If anyone raises an eyebrow, just play your pre-wedding jitters card: “It’s helping calm my nerves!”

2. Abstaining From Manual Labor

On every other day of the year, you leave your house carrying a bag that you fondly call “The Black Hole”. However, on your wedding day, you can probably leave everything to someone else. Appoint your maid of honor to make sure your emergency bag gets to the venue, and leave your hands free for your bouquet and a flute of champagne. If you must, carry a small clutch with a few select essentials; something you can carry easily is absolutely a must.

3. Creating A Scene

When arriving on your wedding day, don’t be afraid to make a spectacular entrance. Whether you’re arriving via helicopter, limo or bicycle, you can definitely get away with any extravagant entrance your heart desires.

4. Requiring A Restroom Assistant

On your wedding day, you’re going to be wearing a very elaborate dress that will be completely unfamiliar to you. There is no shame in needing a little assistance in the restroom when you’re dealing with layers and trains and veils, so make sure you always have a bridesmaid or two to help you out.

5. Public Displays Of Affection

While you may not be the most demonstrative couple, on your wedding day, you’ll probably find that you can’t help holding on to your new spouse and planting many kisses on their lips throughout your big day. Getting married is a heady event, and those wedding day public displays of affection are both beautiful and spontaneous.

6. Making Short Work Of Finger Food

Leading up to your big day, you’ve probably been depriving yourself of food to make sure the dress fits. However, now that the ceremony is over, don’t worry about diving into whatever happens to come your way. Your energy will be a lot higher if you keep yourself nourished, and you’ve definitely earned a splurge day!
