You spend a lot of time planning your wedding day. So it’s only fitting that you want to actually enjoy it especially all the little moments. But stress and worry can take over and keep you from enjoying the all the time and hard work you put in. Our friends at Brides.com came up with some tips to enjoy your wedding day. So keep in mind the most important part of a wedding is the celebration of your love and beginning of your lives together. If brides don’t stay present, their wedding day will go by in the blink of an eye without actually experiencing or enjoying it.
- If you’re not used to wearing heels, be sure to buy a comfortable pair of shoes and break them in before your wedding day. Don’t be distracted with aching feet and blisters on your wedding day. This also goes for your strapless bra or corset.
Is It In Place
- Hiring vendors that are reliable, experienced, and talented will remove so much of the worry. They will take care of what’s happening behind the scenes the week leading up to the wedding and the day itself. If you made the investment of hiring a wedding planner, all of the details will be handled. Walk into the ceremony and reception knowing that everything and everyone are in their place and ready to have a good time.
More tips to enjoy your Wedding Day
- There is so much to do in the days leading up to your wedding. But rather than leave everything to the last minute tackle them as early as possible. This way the stress of your last-minute projects and to do’s doesn’t linger on your wedding day. Make sure things like your programs, escort cards, welcome bags, and DIY projects are done well before the week of your wedding. Setting the tone with a calm, restful week will put you in the right frame of mind and be mentally present on your wedding day.
It’s A Very Long Day
- You don’t want to deal with a growling stomach. Start your day with a good breakfast, and then take short breaks for snacks. Have light appetizers before you put on your wedding dress, before the ceremony, and before you’re introduced into your ballroom.
Take A Moment
- You’ll probably have very little time alone with your spouse on your wedding day. Take a moment after your ceremony for some quiet time. Go to the bridal suite or another private area to take in and cherish the special moments of your day. Let your planner and caterer know about your plans ahead of time so they can have things as champagne, water, and a sampling of your hors d’oeuvres ready for you.
Put It Away
- Leave your phone in your purse, or give it to your maid of honor. Phone’s are a daily distraction, and will be on your wedding day, too if you don’t put it away. You definitely don’t need something else pulling your attention away. You’ve hired a professional photographer, so you don’t need to take photos. Also anyone you’d think to call or text will be there in person that day.
