A few tips on how to be relaxed and focus on your feeling on your wedding day
The day of your wedding is going to be the most memorable, exciting and stressful day of your life. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with our tips on how to make sure that your wedding day goes off without a hitch.
Why is it important?
There are so many things that can go wrong on your wedding day. It’s stressful enough to think about the important details of the day, but it is also important to be relaxed and calm. If you come across a problem or worry, don’t let it distract you from enjoying the moment with your friends and family who have come together on this special day. The best way to do this is by taking deep breaths and concentrating on being present in every moment as you enjoy yourself!
- Relaxing activities for your wedding day
If there are any moments where you feel stressed out or anxious, try something simple like putting up a photo album from when you were younger (if applicable). Even just looking at old photos can help bring back fond memories that will help relax both body and mind.*
Know that weather can be fickle.
While it’s true that the weather will inevitably be rainy on your wedding day, it’s also true that we’re not all lucky enough to have a clear, sunny day with cool breezes. The best way to deal with this is to plan ahead: if possible, move your ceremony indoors if you think rain might be an issue. If you can’t (or don’t want) to do this but still want a beautiful outdoor ceremony, perhaps consider going with a tent instead of an open-air setting.
If there are strong winds or high temperatures in the forecast for your wedding day, consider doing something like having an evening reception instead of an afternoon one or avoid scheduling outdoor photos where there could be potential for damage by wind/sun/dust etc., if possible.
Keep the moment in perspective.
It’s important to remember that your wedding day is about you and your partner, not about everyone else. Even if the weather is terrible and the flowers are wilting, you will still have an amazing time with the people closest to you.
Remember that your wedding day is just one day in a lifetime of days—most of which will probably be spent wearing clothes. Just go about getting ready for this big event as you would any other day by taking care of yourself and making sure that everyone around you feels comfortable and happy!
Count on your vendors to help.
Your vendors are there to help you, so ask them for it. They will understand your situation and do what they can to make your day as stress-free as possible. If you are stressed out on the big day, their job is going to be that much harder because of it. It’s best not to overload yourself with tasks that don’t really need to be done by your own hand. This will only add more time and stress during an already crazy day!
Focus on what you can control.
- Focus on what you can control. Don’t stress about things that are out of your hands, like the weather or a family member who is late. Instead, focus on what you can do to make the day go smoothly: your dress, makeup and hair.
- Don’t sweat the small stuff. If something goes wrong (and it will), don’t let it ruin your day!
Being flexible is the key to a happy wedding day. Even if you plan everything down to the last detail, things will always go wrong. The weather might not cooperate, or one of your guests might get food poisoning and have to leave early. You’re going to have some hiccups along the way; that’s just part of life. If you can be prepared for those hiccups and handle them well, your entire wedding will run smoothly and everyone will have an amazing time!
So how do you become more flexible? Well first off, I recommend writing down all of your plans in advance—and then leaving room for some flexibility when it comes time for execution. For example: say it’s raining on your wedding day but there’s still plenty of sunlight outside (as in this photo). You could either change venues or take photos inside instead! And don’t forget about being flexible with yourself too—if something doesn’t go as planned…maybe it wasn’t meant to be!
Your wedding day should not be stressful, but an enjoyable day with family and friends
Your wedding day should be about you and your partner, and all of the people who love you. It’s not about anybody else, so don’t worry about what other people think. The most important thing on your wedding day is that it is an enjoyable experience for YOU.
You are making a commitment to each other and committing yourself to build a future together with this person who has chosen to spend their life with YOU! That’s pretty amazing!
I hope these tips have helped you put your mind at ease. I know that the planning and execution of a wedding is stressful enough, so it’s important to not let the weather add to that stress!
