OK, we can’t promise that your wedding will be the most relaxing experience of your life, but it’s possible for it to be less anxiety-filled than you might think. One way to do this is to make sure both the big and small aspects of your wedding have been taken care of. The big things include making sure you’re happy with the plan and that everything is organised; things you already know. The smaller things are the aspects that can have a big influence on your wedding, yet, because of their size, they are commonly overlooked. Below, we take a look at a few of these things.
In The Days Before
If you’re beginning your wedding day from a point of stress, then you’ll find it difficult to stay calm and happy. Few people become more calm on the morning of the wedding; it ramps up. So if you’re beginning the day from a point of complete bliss and tranquility, then you’ll find it much easier to be reasonable and stay calm throughout the ceremony and reception. You can do those by creating a plan in the run-up to your wedding; in the days before, you can get a massage, spa treatment, and anything else you like to do that puts you in a happy and calm frame of mind.
Ready To Roll
It’s important to remember that while your wedding is a very special day in some ways, it’s also a regular day in others. It’s not just the big things that need to be under control. You’ve got to eat, you need to have your essentials with you, and you’ll need to have your phone charged and ready for action. This last one can catch people out, actually. They forget to bring a backup charger, or find that they’ve got no space to take photos. Before your wedding day, make sure that you learn how to transfer photos from iPhone to Mac. It’ll free up the storage you need to get snap happy on your big day.
Work With Others
You’ll have worked with many other people in order to get your big day just right, the caterers, DJ, and so on. But on the day, you’ll still need to be in management mode, in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly. This can feel a little overwhelming, but not if you work with a member of your family or a friend. Look at delegating a few tasks out (they’ll be happy to help) so you can focus on enjoying yourself. Also, don’t fret over your guests, and whether they’re getting along and having a good time: they will be.
Meditation and Relaxation
Finally, don’t forget the power of meditation and relaxation. In the run-up to your wedding, look at starting the day with a ten-minute meditation session. By the time the wedding rolls around, you’ll have begun to feel the effects, which will help you to manage the stressful factors of the day.
