There is so much pressure and so many preparations when it comes to hosting a wedding that you might become stressed instead of joyful as the big day approaches. There are many reasons for which your wedding day can become one of the most stressful events instead of one of the happiest moments in your life.
Although both women and men imagine they will be happiest and most relaxed on the day they officialize their love bond, this is rarely the case. Most couples are super excited but also very anxious about how things will turn out and a big majority of newlyweds report that, amidst all the preparations and scheduled activities, they completely forgot to taste the cake, try the photobooth or sip a glass of wine and unwind.
Fortunately, there are some simple tips and tricks, available for all brides to be, you can take into consideration in order to enjoy your much-awaited wedding day:
Take A Good Rest
A good mood usually comes with a good night’s sleep and a relaxing bath before or even in the morning of your big day, depending on your scheduled activities. You can even plan a photoshoot around this sensual ritual that will make you look back and admire yourself and make your skin glow on the day of your big ceremony. Whether you will stay at a fancy hotel or in the comfort of your own apartment, take some much-needed time to dedicate to your self-pampering routine and make sure that you feel completely relaxed and focused before dressing up in that amazing gown.
Pass Your Phone To One Of Your Bridesmaids
Another life-saving hack for your mental well-being is to go for the help of your bridesmaid’s squad for any personal issues. Designate one of them to be the carrier of your phone if you don’t have an event planner to handle all the possible phone calls on your behalf. It can be that the band doesn’t have the coordinates of the party venue, or that one of your guests gets lost, either way, you want to make sure that someone can help you deal with the little adjustments that need to be done at the last minute. For any unforeseen conditions, you can also buy a wedding day insurance in advance to help you cover the financial loss that comes with unpredicted changes.
Wear Dancing Shoes
If you are a perfectionist, it is very probable that you decided to wear designer shoes with incredibly high heels or an extravagant shape that will make you very uncomfortable after wearing them an entire day. As much as you want to impersonate a super elegant, statuesque presence on your big day, it is better to have a laid-back approach. Be realistic and go for dancing shoes, with a wide platform that will offer support while dancing or running from table to table to welcome your guests and take pictures with your loved ones.
If you planned both a religious ceremony and a reception party at a restaurant, you are more than welcome to wear practical shoes. After all, you want to be safe and relaxed and able to perform an unforgettable waltz with your soulmate.
Live, Laugh, Love
Visualization and careful preparation will help you anticipate any inconvenience that might occur on the spot. No matter how people around you act, it’s your own responsibility to channel positive emotions and good-feeling so that your guests are equally cheerful and ready to spread joy. After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and you can forget about other people’s expectations and live to your own principles. The more natural and comfortable you will feel, the better your overall attitude will be.
Choose to celebrate the way you feel and discard conventional thoughts or critiques and comments from the sides. If you want to feel thankful and satisfied when looking back at your wedding day, the best thing to do is to follow your inner voice and create your own version of a perfect marital fest!
