How to Cope with Stress During Your Wedding Day
Your wedding day should be the happiest moment of your life, not the most stressful. However, many weddings suffer from stress. You worry that something will go wrong. You want to avoid any drama with your friends and family. You don’t want to have anxiety over the marriage in general. There’s a lot to worry about. Luckily, you can reduce the amount of stress you have and achieve the best wedding possible, and here’s how.
Plan a Flexible Wedding Day Schedule
When planning, you should have some kind of schedule that details everything, but leaves room for flexibility. Sometimes, an event or a speech during a wedding can go on for longer than you would think. Consider that in your schedule and make sure every event has some room to breathe. If everything is tight, it can all come crashing down like dominoes.
Get Yourself a Day of Coordinator
Even if you think everything is planned well, a day-of coordinator can help tie some loose ends during the day and help fix anything that goes wrong. The last thing you want is for you to worry about something not being delivered during the day of your wedding.
Spend Some Alone Time Together
Before the wedding, it’s good to unwind with your future spouse. Set some time for the two of you. Maybe eat some breakfast together, or take a warm bath. You’ll be surprised at how much this will make you feel better.
Get Some Rest
Easier said than done. It’s hard to get some rest on the most exciting day of your life, but resting up can help control your stress. Don’t party too hard the night before, and if you find yourself too excited, take a warm bath or find some other way to wind you down.
Make Sure Everything is Paid For
One of the biggest reasons for stress during a wedding is getting an unexpected bill or realizing that not everything is paid off. Before your wedding day, make sure all the payments have gone through and you still have some money left over. It’s better to prepare.
Breathe a Little Bit
Before your wedding, practice some breathing exercise to calm your nerves. It’s okay to feel anxious during your wedding day, but don’t let it control you. It’s your day, not anyone else’s. Take a deep breath.
The greatest vision for a wedding is one where every family member sets aside their differences and unites to celebrate your marriage. However, some people just don’t want to unite. If you have family members who don’t like each other attending, try to make sure they’re seated as far away as possible. Make a strict no-fighting policy, and address any concerns before or after the wedding. Don’t let people make your wedding about them. Instead, throw them out if needed.
After the Wedding
Once the wedding is over, it’s time to celebrate. Some may go on a nice honeymoon, or start building their life. Whatever your idea is, make sure the two of you are in it together.
If you have any concerns about your marriage, want to make sure the two of you are communicating well, or have any other questions, don’t be afraid to talk to a marriage counselor or a couple’s therapist for consultation. You can visit a traditional therapist, or use an online service such as BetterHelp for therapy at any time.
Your wedding should be about you. Don’t stress about anything that’s not under your control. Instead, plan ahead, breathe, and have fun.
