Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, but can also be long and stressful. Here are some ways to help ease any stress and enjoy your wedding day to the fullest.
1. Pick the right wedding party !
Having a fun wedding sometimes depends on if you have picked the right group to be apart of your wedding party. Make sure your maid of honor/bestman know their day-of duties.
2. Avoid planning too much the week of your wedding.
There is plenty to do during the days leading up to your wedding. Instead of leaving it all last minute, be proactive and get necessary tasks done as soon as possible. Planning a wedding can be stressful, so spreading it out evenly will help you feel less overwhelmed and better able to enjoy your wedding day.
3. Give yourself enough time (and more) to get ready.
This is a time to relax, have a good time with your bridesmaids, and feel beautiful. Starting the getting-ready process as early as possible will prevent feeling rushed in the minutes leading up to your ceremony.
4.Bring flats for the reception.
No matter how broken in your heels may be, there may come a point where you just need them to come off. Packing ballet flats is easy and they still look great with a wedding dress.
5.Take some time to be alone with each other.
Once the ceremony ends, you and your new spouse are in for a whirlwind of congratulations and socializing at the reception. While this is a beautiful time to celebrate with your family and friends, taking a moment to be alone with your new spouse and bask in newlywed bliss will make you both feel ready to celebrate the rest of the night as a bonded unit.
6. Don’t over-do it with alcohol.
Your wedding day is something you will want to remember clearly for the rest of your life, so be sure not to go too heavy on the drinking. A good tip is to drink a full glass of water between each alcoholic drink.
7. Give your DJ a list of songs you want to them to play.
This is your time to control the playlist and make sure you get to hear all of your jams on the dance floor.
8. Eat and stay hydrated throughout the day.
Your wedding will be as special as it is long. The last thing you need is your stomach growling and taking your attention away from your good times. Drink plenty of water, especially as you show off your moves on the dance floor.
9. Put your phone away.
Phones are a daily distraction, and it will be just the same on your wedding day. Putting it somewhere safe will keep further distractions at bay and help you be more present throughout your celebration. Most likely you’ve hired a professional photographer, so you won’t need to take any photos. Also, anyone you would text or call you is most likely there to enjoy your wedding day with you.
10. Book EYE DO!
This is a no-brainer!
