After our gallery yesterday, where we’re sure you’ll agree most of the brides looked gorgeous in their dresses, we’ve taken in all the mishaps and good things of their day’s to give you a list of do’s and don’ts for your own wedding day. Read on for our list of tips.

check what the weather is like during the season you decide to get married in. Especially if you’re tying the knot abroad like Coleen and Wayne Rooney. The couple were forced to use umbrella’ for the day when it tipped it down at their venue in Portofino on the Italian Rivera. It may be a foreign country but it still has a rainy season.

Don’t overdo the fake tan like Claudine Palmer did when she married footballer sweetheart Robbie Keane. An Orangutan in a dress does not make for nice wedding pictures.

Don’t lose too much weight before your big day like Mrs Beckham. Despite what the media says, a stick in a big white dress is not an attractive look. Naturally slim brides should also pick a style that suits their body shape.

Don’t plan your wedding for the same weekend as three more of your friends or colleagues. This is what happened with John Terry, Gary Neville, Steven Gerrard, and Michael Carrick. If you have mutual friends they may feel torn.

Do accessorize props that you didn’t think you’d need on the big day, like Coleen and Wayne Rooney. They used their umbrellas to keep them dry and created a beautiful range of wedding photos.

spend a fortune on your wedding dress. An average WAG dress costs around £10,000. You’ll only wear it once and you most definitely won’t be able to reclaim your money back by selling it on Ebay after the big day.

Don’t over accessorize your dress with diamantes like Claudine Palmer. Unlike Ms Palmer, we also advise you keep your, er, assets moderately covered. Less is more ladies.

Do keep it simple. White limousines, sparkles and bling aren’t what make a wedding.
