As beautiful as they are, weddings are notoriously stressful. Most couples want their wedding day to be absolutely perfect, but end up stressing so much they forget to enjoy the biggest day of their lives. Here are seven tips to help you avoid unnecessary drama on your special day.
Every single little detail may seem important now, but when everything is said and done, you won’t think about it much when you reflect back on your wedding day. Ask yourself if something is worth stressing yourself out over, and if it isn’t, move on.
Hire a Wedding Day Coordinator
If you try to handle everything yourself, you’re going to find yourself overwhelmed very quickly. A wedding coordinator, like Keely Thorne Events or Belle of the Ball, can calmly and efficiently keep your wedding day on track.
Make an Emergency Kit
Before the day of the wedding itself, assemble a kit of emergency items: a small sewing kit, pain reliever, hygiene products, etc. This way, if something goes wrong, you won’t have to rush out to get something to fix a popped button or soothe a headache.
Choose an Emergency Helper
Things can go wrong at the last minute, but you don’t have to handle it yourself. Designate a go-to person who can get things done, and have them handle any unexpected problems while you focus on your day.
Learning meditation can be extremely calming, both for the wedding planning process and for the wedding day itself. This is an excellent way to calm and focus your mind.
Turn Up the Tunes
Music isn’t just for the reception, create a playlist you love to listen to while you get ready. You can even take dance breaks with your bridal party and family to help unwind and have some fun.
Remember What It’s All About
When you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by details, take a moment to remember what this day is all about: the joining of two lives into one.
Weddings can be stressful, but they are only as stressful as you let them be. Skip the drama and enjoy yourself!
