The wedding day can be super stressful, as everyone is running around trying to get ready. Well today I have 4 helpful tips to help you have a relaxing wedding day! Everyone’s wedding day should be as relaxing and drama free as possible!
4 Helpful Tips For A Relaxing Wedding Day
Tip 1: Communication, Dream Visions
One of the first places to turn to after you get engaged is Pinterest! I totally get it! However before you get lost in all the fabulous webs of Pinterest talk out your wedding together. This is the perfect time to discuss all the things you want in your wedding day! The theme, or style, food, colors, everything.
Once you have a solid idea of what you both want, you can jump on Pinterest to help gather ideas! Keep in mind that everything that is on Pinterest is most likely going to be last season. Even though it will be last season it’s still a fabulous way of gathering ideas!
Tip 2: Include Your Groom
Make this both of your wedding. Remember that this is just as much as his wedding as it is yours, so he needs to feel included! He needs to feel like his opinion matters! I truly believe that if the groom felt more included he would actually want to help with the planning! Scary… but some might even find it fun!
Tip 3: Family Portrait Lists
There is nothing wrong with having your own family portrait list! Your photographer usually has a basic break down already, but they would appreciate the list non the less! Something to keep in mind is the more breakdowns you want the longer the portrait time will take.
Use family names for groups and each persons individual name! That allows the photographer to call out the persons name, which can help move things along faster! It’s best to make two copies of this list. Give one to the best man, and the other to the maid of honor, that way you don’t have to worry about it the day of!
Tip 4: Have A Designated Person
The biggest tip I can share with you though is to have at least one designated person to handle all the little tedious things. Pick a person for family and friends to go to when things go wrong. They mean well, but they don’t always understand how stressful it is to hear everything that is going wrong. If the problem can be fixed without it getting to you or your soon to be spouse, then it will leave you stress free… and better yet unknowing!
After the wedding unless initiated by you or your spouse family and friends should keep what they thought went wrong unspoken. I have seen and experienced first hand what it feels like when people talk about weddings afterwards, and it can be disappointing, and depressing.
You don’t need to know everything that goes wrong at your wedding! You only need to worry about looking fabulous, and marrying the one you love! It’s going to be fabulous and you should enjoy every minute of it.
