Weddings are notorious for upping the mental pressure. Dresses, suits, cake, catering, invitations, and seating charts all pile up and stretch your emotional stability to capacity. All this stress could be a potential recipe for catastrophe, but this is your special day! You deserve to tie the knot without the emotional burnout.
Because a harmonious and tranquil wedding day is the only acceptable goal, we’ve come up with a six tips and tricks to help any bride or groom avoid the tension and ensure a lovely and peaceful wedding day.
Take It All In
One of the most important things you can do to minimize stress on your wedding day is to take notice of the beautiful moments going on around you. It’s easy to get caught up in a mental list of to-dos and what-ifs and miss a sweet moment between your grandmother and sister or a stunning sunset through the window. So, remember to take in all the beauty of your special day.
Get Your Blood Flowing
Exercise is terrific for your physical and mental health. If you are plagued by pre-wedding jitters or any anxiety about the big day, hit the gym! Working out helps smooth over all the unpleasant angst you may feel before the wedding, leaving you calm and untroubled.
Don’t feel the need to take on every task by yourself. Delegate projects to your partner, wedding planner, wedding party, and family. The more organized and ready-to-go you are on your big day, the less likely you’ll be stressed out. Remember that your stress could easily be passed on to your guests, so stay cool and let people help you out.
Embrace the Imperfections
Having things go wrong is a natural part of any big event. Whether you step in a puddle, your family is bickering, or your maid of honor shows up with a heinous orange spray tan, try to laugh it off, embrace the imperfections, and move forward. Don’t let little problems make a big impact.
Don’t Pick A Fight
Hearing rude comments on your big day is enough to send any couple over the edge, but resist the urge to fire back. Instead, recite to yourself “water off a duck’s back, water off a duck’s back,” smile, nod, and move on. If you hear any negativity, try your best to let it go.
You can do your best to avoid wedding woes, but things may still go awry on the big day. Just remember to step back, take a deep breath, and remind yourself that you’re celebrating something wonderful: you are now united with your best friend, true love, and absolute soul mate in this sticky crazy mess of this thing we call life.
Nothing can spoil a wonderful moment faster than feeling stressed out, but these tips are sure to help you relieve wedding stress and bask in wedding bliss.
