I can give you a lot of examples of why the don’ts don’t work!
Don’t have a traditional style aisle runner – Do consider using some flower petals. I’ve seen bride’s heels get stuck.
Don’t have flower petals on the beach. Sea gulls think it is food and will attack.
Don’t wear heals if your gonna stand in grass, unless you put those high heel protectors on them – to keep you from sinking into the grass.
Don’t laugh during your vows – do let tears and emotions happen. If you are a laugher, then you may get laugher in the wrong time: “I _____ take you ____ to be my ________. To love and to cherish “laughter.” I’ve seen the laughter at “and I promise to be faithful to you.” Awkward.
Don’t wear makeup which will give you streaks if you shed tears. Do wear make up which will not leave streaks. This is different than mascara.
Don’t wear red lipstick – Do wear lip sealant. Otherwise your spouse will have red lips, too! Awkward for pictures.
Don’t let the groom arrive to ceremony without a real handkerchief. Do get the groom one so that he can dab your tears or his perspiration.
These are just for starters!
