3 Tips for a Stress-free Wedding Day
It’s no secret, weddings can be stressful. For some couples it’s the need to make everything perfect for one another. For other couples it’s the idea that a wedding day is the first day of the rest of your lives together — you don’t want anything to go awry. Beneath that, it’s often about much more. Nerves. Stress. We’re nervous about the idea of spending the rest of our lives with someone who has already, by proposing, shown they’re ready for this commitment, to take the next and final step to being your other half. We’re stressed that one hiccup is going to ruin the entire day, and with it, somehow, a part of your first day of forever. A handy tip? Relax — you’ll find that happiness may creep in sooner. When you’re stressed out, your emotions are heightened and you’re less likely to enjoy your big day, or your love you’ll be walking down the aisle to meet any second. Take a deep breath and relax.
1. There’s no such thing as over-hydrating.
Water is your friend. It’s a vital component of making you look and feel your best on your wedding day. Drinking plenty of water can help you. So the night before, drink plenty and same goes for the morning of. Raise your water glasses, ladies, and cheers to keeping hydrated.
2. Eat a healthy meal.
It’s been believed you don’t alter a wedding dress to fit you, you alter yourself to fit a wedding dress, and as much or as little a times you may have heard that, it’s okay, nonetheless, to eat a nice, healthy meal. On your wedding day, there’s going to be a lot going on, and as long as you have a good support team (a wedding planner included, if applicable), then you probably won’t even know the lot of it. But regardless, it’s always important to have a good, hearty meal the night before and the morning of to keep from having any hiccups on your wedding day. Anything will work, but it’s good to eat and hydrate before walking down the aisle.
3. Get a good night’s sleep.
There’s no napping on your wedding day. Keep the nerves and jitters at bay the night before and if you feel like you can’t, try to take a Melatonin before turning in, or light a lavender and camomile candle. Another alternative is to drink warm milk and honey, sometimes adding a hint of nutmeg helps too.
