Heidi Elnora is a Birmingham fashion designer and the subject of TLC's latest reality show, Bride by Design, and she's knows a lot about weddings especially on how to have a stress-free ceremony.

According to Elnora, every new bride should do some due diligence before going wedding shopping.

"I think the first step to finding your wedding dress is really doing your research, researching what you like whether it's through Pinterest, magazines or blogs." she said. "Really go in an look at different styles that you like."

Elnora shares six key tips for having a blissful wedding day below:

  1. Comfort is the key: Elnora says the latest wedding trend is not a particular fabric or dress style, but it is comfort. Bridal trends typically depend on the bride and the local of the nuptials, but ease reigns supreme for spring and summer weddings. "They want fabrics that are lightweight, moveable and breathable," she said. "Some brides are still wanting strapless, but a lot of brides are going for cover-ups they can switch out to have two different looks."

  2. Be open-minded: Elnora also encourages brides to remain open to change during dress shopping. "You may really find yourself surprised at what you may fall in love with," she said. "You may come in thinking you want one shape and leave totally different."

  3. Eat: "Make sure somebody brings you some food," Elnora said of the actual wedding day. "You get so busy during the day and all the preparations, make sure that you take the time to sit and eat something because you're not going to have any time at your reception. You've got too many people wanting to hug you, kiss you and congratulate you."

  4. Surround yourself with happy people: Another wedding day tip from Elnora is to stay positive. "Keep people around you that keep you positive and who don't concern you with anything that may have not gone just perfectly," she said. 

  5. Let someone else handle the details: Concerning organizing, Elnora said make sure to have someone around to handle the small things on your wedding day. "If you can hire someone or ask someone to be there the day of just to make sure that all the tiny details that you planned for so long do happen," she said. "If you can't afford to hire someone, definitely get someone you can trust and who is very organized."

  6. Enjoy the moment: Finally, Elnora says it's important for brides to take it all in on their wedding day. "It's so quick," she said. "I remember on my wedding day that I was so incredibly calm and had such a peace about it. Don't get too worked up about all the details, just get excited about your future and what you're about to do."
