We asked brides: “What is the biggest advice you can give any bride or groom-to-be?”
1) Relax and Don’t Stress:
Raneem Fakhoury: “Be relaxed and take things easy, everything will go well. Try to hold your tears of joy as they will ruin your make up.”
Rawan Jeres: “Be calm and relaxed when making your decisions.”
Shorooq Azaizeh: “Don’t stress about the small things. You can get so wrapped up in trying to make everything perfect that you miss the special moments.”
Salwa Kaoukji: “Don’t stress a lot about your big day, just let things go and believe that everything will fall into place… they always do.”
Tala Batarneh: “Don’t stress before the wedding, everything will turn out great eventually.”
Luma Karadsheh: “Relax! Enjoy every moment, and don’t forget to buy comfortable wedding shoes.”
2) Plan Early:
Sama Junaid: “Start early! It’s never too early to start planning and gathering your thoughts and ideas.”
Hanan Al Amian: “Don’t leave your wedding planning until the last minute. Start planning a year to a few months ahead so you won’t regret any decision you make, and so you can still have time to change the things you don’t like.”
Lina Dghjoqa: “The most important thing is to finish all the tasks before the wedding in a week, so she could have time and patience to deal with whatever comes up during that week.”
Farah Abu Alhial: “Plan ahead and look for deals… especially on Arabia Weddings.”
Hala Diwaneh: “Start arranging for things ahead of time, because you definitely need time to prepare for a classy wedding.”
3) Be Organized:
Shereen Haddad: “The most important thing is organization. You have to be organized and always keep a paper, pen, and calendar with you. You will need them to add your tasks and make sure you don’t forget any detail.”
Jamileh Al Alami: “I recommend having a notebook in your purse at all times, and having to-do lists and constantly updating them. You tend to get more and more overwhelmed closer to the wedding, and your mind will probably be all over the place. So once you put everything down on paper, it’ll feel much better and you’ll feel more organized.”
Talah Al Alami: “Have a checklist for the things that need to be done. Be calm and relaxed during the last weeks before the wedding. Never try anything new concerning her beauty care 2 weeks prior to your wedding, such as facial sessions or masks, skin peeling or laser hair removal.”

A new survey shows that 6 in 10 single women have already planned aspects of their wedding, including choosing the dress they will wear and the flowers they’ll carry on the big day.
