Do’s and Don’ts for the Cyprus Perfect Wedding
1. Don’t get burnt
A Cyprus perfect wedding means that you can get a gorgeous golden glow and great on your photos. It may be very tempting to try and get a suntan for your big day but be careful. Sun burn can be very serious and make you feel terrible, and of course, lobster is not a good look. If you want to sunbathe before the wedding, use SPF 30+ and try to avoid getting strap marks or sunglasses rings. Better still, you could always go for a spray tan.
2. Check it thrice
If you want to have a smooth Cyprus perfect wedding Prepare a check list before you travel to make sure you’ve got everything. It’s not as simple as passport, money, tickets….there will be many things to remember from your wedding rings, to your ‘something borrowed.’ Double check, then check again.
3. Lay off the alcohol
Save the champagne for the wedding reception. Avoid alcohol altogether or limit yourself to a couple of glasses of wine. If you’re having your hen or stag night in Cyprus, don’t do it the night before your special day. Nor is it a good idea to try the local fire water, Zyvania…it is 70% proof.
4. Delegate tasks where you can
Don’t get stressed out trying to handle everything yourself. Avoid burn-out by delegating tasks to your family, bridesmaids, best man or better yet your wedding planner. Resist the urge to do it yourself and put trust in your friends and family.
At your pre-wedding consultation with your wedding planner, hair stylist etc. be sure to communicate clearly. Write down what you need, supply photos to illustrate, prepare a list of questions to ask. You’ll feel much more confident and less stressed.
6. Allow plenty of time
The last thing you want to do is rush-around; so it’s a good idea to get married 4-5 days into your stay in Cyprus. This will give you plenty of time to finalize arrangements and treat yourself to plenty of pampering before the big day.
7. Remember that Men are from Mars
Leading up to a wedding, it’s quite common for trivial arguments to spark between couples. Grooms often appear distant and prefer to take a back seat in the arrangements. Brides may become irritable, emotional and anxious. This is perfectly normal, don’t take it too seriously and try to support each other.
8. Don’t forget to eat
Don’t try to starve yourself before the wedding. This is the main reason why brides have a tendency to faint at the altar. You’re getting married abroad so you’ve got the heat to consider too. Stay strong by eating regularly, do it little and often to prevent bloating. And, drink lots of water to avoid dehydration.
To many, a wedding in Cyprus is a dream come true. Try your best to make the best out of it.
