I have been seeing a lot of weddings on Instagram this February, and this made me think about my own wedding. I remember it like it was yesterday, the excitement of planning, the joy of meeting your suppliers, and of course the stress of it all! Many brides turn into bridezillas from the beginning of planning to the day of their wedding. And that is the last thing every bride would want to be on their special day. I, personally, tried my best to relax, starting the day before my wedding. Here are some tips that might also work for you to stay calm before your special day. :)
1. Hire a wedding planner.
This is the first step to having a stress-free wedding day. Good wedding planners will work with you to have your dream wedding with the budget that you have, and, good wedding planners will absorb all the stress for you on the day itself. :) I remember during my wedding, I had no idea that there were small issues that arose, and my wedding planner handled them all without having to inform me. I was relaxed, while she, was not. ;p
2. Do as much as you can in advance.
Get your nails done a few days before the day, so you don’t have to squeeze that into your full schedule the night before your wedding. Pick up whatever needs to be picked up from the supplier as soon as it’s ready. Brief anyone that needs to be briefed about the wedding.
3. Forget you’re getting married tomorrow (on the day before the wedding).
You got that right! No, I don’t mean do something you’ll regret for the rest of your life! ;p What I mean is, just forget all the problems connected to your wedding. Take some time to yourself (this may be the last time you’ll actually have time to yourself). Watch a movie on your own, dine in a quiet restaurant, just do anything that will allow you to spend time with, yes, you. :)
4. Don’t see your groom the day before.
Try not to communicate or hang out with your groom-to-be the day before, so that the next time you see him, it will be when he’s waiting for you at the end of the aisle. Trust me, all the excitement will replace any stress that you may be feeling on your wedding day.
5. Take a bubble bath.
The night before your special day, soak in an essential oils infused bath. Lavender would be a good choice to calm those nerves. Play some relaxing music, light some candles, and close your eyes and relax.
I hope that these tips can help you on your upcoming wedding. Good luck and best wishes! :)
Now, I leave you with some photos from my own wedding. Ahhh the memories you will be making on that day will be priceless. <3
