5 Essential Ways To Nix the Stress on Your Wedding Day

Have A Dress Rehearsal

We’re serious. This is very important.

You don’t want to put on your entire ensemble the morning of and realize that you don’t feel your best which is why a “dress rehearsal” is an absolute must.

Get your hair and makeup done, grab your accessories, and shimmy into your dress. Take a few pics and make sure every angle and every detail is just the way you want it to be. You’ll want to be extra confident on your wedding day and this will ensure that it happens.

Schedule Breaks

This is one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard been given to a bride. Schedule breaks throughout the day to take a step back from it all. This will give you a moment to decompress and be able to really breathe in the scope of what’s happening.

It’s also a really great route to take if you’re prone to anxiety. You’re the complete center of attention for the entire day and night, so don’t feel bad if you need to slip away and give yourself a moment to be “off” instead of “on”.

Assign A Wrangler

Whether it’s for certain photos or certain keepsakes, assign a wrangler for both. Get your sis to snatch up place cards, programs, napkins, and the like to keep in your “treasure” box back at home.

This way, you’ll be able to look back at all the goodies and details from your big day firsthand. And, by giving someone else the task, you don’t have to stress over it.

Remember to Eat

This is especially important if you plan to have a drink in your hand. You don’t want a stomachache and you don’t want your blood sugar to dip so low that you get woozy. Make sure you lightly snack throughout the day to give you energy throughout all that’s unfolding.

You can even ask the wedding planning to make sure someone prepares you and your groom a plate to pick on throughout the celebration.

Delegate Tasks

There’s no telling how many bees will be bussing around you on your wedding day, use that to your advantage. But, the key here is to delegate tasks beforehand.

  • Give Mom something to take care of.
  • Make sure each of the bridesmaids has their special responsibility.
  • Utilize your wedding planner too.

Take the load off of your shoulders and allow yourself to enjoy instead of giving yourself too much to do rather than just be the bride!
