As any married couple will tell you, weddings are stressful. But there are many ways to reduce the stress levels, so you have a more relaxed and meaningful day.
First of all, it's good to know that every wedding has some level of stress. We call this natural stress, and even if everything went perfectly, you would still have a little natural stress. It's a good kind of stress. It's the nervous butterflies in your stomach that you feel before you walk down the aisle, which means you are marrying the right person. It turns into excitement, joy, and happiness.
The negative kind of stress turns into worry, anxiety or even anger. That sort of stress isn't invited to your wedding day and here's how we make sure of it.
Take Care Of Yourself Leading Up To The Wedding
We are talking about mind, body, and spirit. Find time to relax by seeing a movie, exercising, reading or getting a massage. Whatever leads you to your peaceful, happy place, go there often. Of course, you will be having the hair salon, beauty treatments, nail appointments and all that pampering that comes with being a bride. Also, make sure you get plenty of sleep, eat healthily and drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
With work, social life and being busy planning the wedding, it can be hard to make time for yourself, but you need and deserve it, so you can be a stress-free bride.
Your wedding is a chance to practice the art of delegating. Only you can take care of certain things like designing the invitations, choosing the cake design, and making the table seating plan. But your bridesmaid or maid of honor can take care of many small details, including researching, shopping and finalizing rehearsal details. Let some of these time-consuming duties go to someone else to take care of. Also, when you ask people for help it makes them feel special.
Hire A Professional Wedding Planner
A wedding planner can help you design and style your day, plan and budget, book vendors and coordinate the whole event. You will save time, money and reduce your stress with a talented wedding planner by your side. Everything is easier with a skilled planner to help, and you will be grateful you made the wise investment.
Have A Detailed Rundown
The wedding day schedule is a document that tells everyone what to do and when they should do it. With times, locations and who is responsible for each task. It is for the couple, venue, vendors, and important friends and family such as the bridal party members. Make sure it is as detailed as possible to help the day go smoothly so you can relax and be a stress-free bride.
Live In The Moment
Every bride comment on how the day goes by in a blissful blur of love, joy, and happiness, and they wish they could do it all over again. Live in the moment and focus on yourselves and your friends and family. Don't worry about what's happening behind the scenes or what will happen next. Just be present so you can fully experience the lovely day.
We hope these hints help you glide through the wedding day with limited stress, so you can fully enjoy every moment.
