Your wedding day is one of the most memorable and happiest days of your life. Without the right planning and preparation it also has the potential to be one of the most stressful times of your life. The key is to do everything you can in advance to be prepared for your big day, but also keep in mind that nothing is perfect. Here are some tips you should consider doing in advance of your wedding day so it can be low stress and you can fully enjoy yourself.
Seek Professional Help
One of the easiest ways to take wedding stress off of you is to let someone else do the research and work while you make the decisions. If you’ve already started planning but find it to be too overwhelming as your big day approaches, there are also services that will take over the coordination of your day. With both wedding day-of coordination and full service wedding planning you can choose what works best for you so you can enjoy yourself while someone else runs the show.
Accidents happen all of the time. On a day as important as your wedding the best thing you can do is be prepared for any small thing, especially while wearing the gown you’ll remember for the rest of your life. If a bridesmaid accidentally steps on your train or the flower girl tugs a little too hard on your skirt, having an emergency sewing kit on hand will fix the situation and help you to not panic. For extra preparedness while in your white gown, stash a detergent or bleach pen with your sewing kit for any accidental spills.
Look Good, Feel Good
When preparing the beauty aspects of your wedding, regardless of whether you’re the bride or groom, it’s best to do everything in advance instead of right before. If getting a spray tan, go a week before your wedding so if it’s too dark or orange it’ll have some time to fade. Then there’s hair. If you want it cut do so with enough time for it to grow in just in case it doesn’t meet expectations. Brides, consider taking Olly Undeniable Beauty gummies to strengthen hair, skin and nails. Grooms, consider checking out hims hair products to promote hair growth and stop any hair loss.
You want to make sure your wedding is enjoyable for everyone, but you also need to make sure you don’t forget anything and keep on track. Schedule out the day with some wiggle room just in case. At your rehearsal, do a walk through of the day so you know what to expect and if the timing is reasonable. That way you're not stressing about if you’ll have enough time or if you’re forgetting to do something.
Comfort Above All Else
There’s no denying that your wedding day, while being one of the happiest days of your life, is one of the longest and most tiring. You’ll be on your feet for a majority of the day, so by the end of it they will likely be extremely sore. The last thing a bride will want is to be in her heels for that long, but you also may not be keen on going barefoot either. Consider purchasing some flip flops for your reception. David’s Bridal offers wedding flip flops for the bride, groom and even bridesmaids. Depending on the time of year you get married, you can even wear these as you depart on your honeymoon.
These are just a few tips to make one of the happiest days of your life less stressful. Everyone should be able to look back on their day with fondness and remember the love, not the headache.
