Oops moments happen. We’re all human after all. Your wedding day will be no different which is why I think it’s important to have those ‘just in case’ items with you. Just a quick search on Pinterest is enough to give you heart palpitations about being completely unprepared. I mean for some of these you’re going to need to haul a bloody great suitcase with you down the aisle to fit it all in (overkill much?)
You should probably leave the extension cord at home, but there are a few things you really do need to have with you on your wedding day. For me those would be safety pins, plasters, chewing gum and deodorant.
They’re all pretty self-explanatory but one of them is a complete non-negotiable – a good deodorant. I know at my own wedding I have never felt more nervous than when I was about to walk down the aisle. A heady mixture of excitement, anticipation and nerves made me thankful I was wearing a good deodorant! If you’re a nervous bride like I was then you’ll definitely need to think about this too. After all, no-one wants sweat patches when your husband or wife-to-be sees you for the first time. And let’s face it, this is likely to be very sweat-patch inducing moment!
Today I’m partnering with Dove to share their brand new campaign, Amazing Moments, in which they put their Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during a real woman’s surprise proposal to the love of her life. Dove Clinical Protection offers undeniable wetness protection and has ¼ moisturisers to care for skin.
Dove is known for their innovative and heart-string tugging adverts. Remember the one where they enlisted a forensic sketch artist to illustrate women’s self-perceptions? For this latest campaign they want to capture these sweet yet sweat-inducing moments as they happen to real people. After all, sometimes the moments that make us sweat are the most amazing moments of all.
Quite apart from the message behind this commercial, I totally love this real life story. I’m pretty sure every single one of us has dreamt about marrying that musician whose poster we hung on our bedroom wall as a teenager, right?
