(6) Take alcohol moderately.
Yes, you want to enjoy and party the night away, but avoid going overboard! Drink up but keep your alcohol at a manageable level so you don’t pass out on your own wedding and end up missing out on the rest of the night.
(7) Personalize some activities.
Sometimes weddings are at risk of being too templated. This is not necessarily a bad thing because there are tried and tested elements that have proven to help weddings pan out smoothly. However, you can add personalized details and activities to your wedding to make it more enjoyable not only for you, but for everyone else. For example, how about creating a new tradition that you will carry out during your marriage as well? Or what about switching some things around instead of following the usual flow?

(8) Inject fun wherever you can.
Lastly, create your own kind of fun! What do you and your husband-to-be enjoy? Whatever it is you both love, add it to your wedding. If you enjoy many things, who’s stopping you from including them all? In the end, it’s your day. How you plan to celebrate should ultimately be about enjoying your time with your husband and your loved ones in the best way possible.
