Tricks Of The Trade
Let’s face it, any wedding day is going to be full of emotions – joy, love, stress, celebration, and of course, the unexpected. If you’re like most brides, saying that your day won’t have some element of stress or anxiety would be a lie. That being said, there are a few ways to ease that stress so that you can enjoy your well-deserved day!
First things first… relax. You can do as much planning as humanly possible for the days/months leading up to the big day, but once that day has arrived, try and leave the last minute details to the professionals. You can’t control everything; so take a moment to remember why you’re there in the first place. It isn’t to have symmetrical floral arrangements, or perfectly organized place-cards, it is to celebrate you and the love of your life!
Don’t forget to eat! We know, you’ve been dieting for months leading up to this day and you want to look perfect. Don’t let that pressure keep you from being healthy. With your nerves at an all time high, food is an extra important factor in your mood. Being even the slightest bit hungry may make you fatigued, or short-tempered. The best way to start your day is with a filling, yet healthy breakfast. Make sure you consume protein to sustain you through the day, as well as carbs to keep yourself full! Although food will be the last thing on your mind, snacking on some crackers and fruit while you’re getting ready will do wonders for your energy levels!
Many brides tend to visit the venue prior to it being fully set-up, which is a recipe for disaster. Your emotions will be heightened this day, and ‘checking in’ on the progress of your day-of set up may be your tipping point in having a bridal breakdown! Have faith in the staff that you hired, and trust that it will all turn out beautifully.
Remember, this is the day you’ve been planning for and dreaming of for years. Now that it has come, don’t let small details take large measures in your mood or energy. Trust your friends, family, and staff to take action if necessary. It may seem impossible, but do your best to relax so that you can enjoy your fairytale!
