Your wedding is drawing close, and you’re just about as excited as ever. But before you wrap up your wedding planning notes for the day or week, we’d like to share with you some things you should also take note of. We listed nine things you should never let your guests see. Why? Well, these can ruin the atmosphere, cause guests to feel uneasy, or reveal more than you really want for your wedding. So, read on now and add these to your notes now.
(1) You in your ceremony dress before the actual ceremony.

It’s supposed to be a surprise, sort of! So refrain from revealing your most beautiful self yet to everyone. Make your first step on the aisle the most heart-stopping one ever!
(2) A major meltdown.
Major kid tantrums can turn the mood sour, especially if it happens to your flower girl or ring bearer. Why not try making your wedding child-friendly so you can avoid this from happening.
(3) Your first look.
Your first look a special moment to keep between you and your husband-to-be, so keep this moment to yourselves.
(4) Your photographer trying to get a good shot with guests blocking the aisle.
Yes, everyone wants to capture your walk down the aisle, but it can be very difficult for your official photographer (and videographer) to get the right shot with everyone in the way. It will be good to lay down some social media rules for your wedding so that everything runs smoothly, especially for those who are really meant to document your special day.
(5) Your stress.
First and foremost, you should not be stressed in any way for on your wedding day. Let go! You’ve done all you can and it’s not to trust that all your wedding vendors to do the rest. Guests don’t want to see a stressed bride, and you want to have the best time during your wedding, so leave all of your worries behind!
(6) An awkward first dance.
Your first dance is definitely a milestone, so why not go all out and hire a choreographer? Put on a show for everyone and make the most of the moment. No one wants to see an awkward first dance anyway.
(7) Confusing seat cards.
After the ceremony, guests will be eager to take their seats at the banquet. Make it fun and easy for them, not confusing and disorganized.
(8) Long buffet lines.
If you’re having a buffet for your banquet, manage the lines so that hungry guests don’t feel like it will take forever.
(9) The banquet closing without proper farewell.
Don’t let the celebration end without saying goodbye and expressing your gratitude. Guests came from all over for your special day, so before officially closing the program, say a little something–it need not be long–to properly bid everyone farewell.
