AVOID THE WEDDING STRESS
It’s one of the most wonderful days of your life but leading up to it can seem a bit like a nightmare! There’s probably lots on your mind that may be transforming you into a “bridezilla”, so we’ve got the best tips for you to remain calm and keep your cool so you can be your best self on your best day!
Bridal Support Squad
Before you even start thinking about planning an entire wedding on your own- stop. Think about your family and friends and how excited they’ll be for you to have them get involved and help you out. You’ll know their strengths and weaknesses, so you can form the ultimate squad to provide organisational and emotional support throughout the planning process. It may seem difficult to relinquish some control at first but trust us- it’s so much better than panic and stress as the day draws nearer. When the big day arrives, treat your support squad to an exclusive photography shoot during your wedding. We love taking photos of the bride surrounded by her nearest and dearest.
When you don’t know where to start and combining all your research turns into a big google blur- visit a wedding expo in your area. Here, you can ask industry professionals all your questions, and see the different packages they offer. You’ll be exposed to celebrants, gown designers, venues, florists and more! You could plan your entire wedding in one day.
Stress Relieving Techniques
Essential oils, massages and mediation are perfect stress relievers that you shouldn’t knock until you try! Minimising negative energies, listening to your body and mental and emotional relief are the key elements to reducing stress. Take some time to take care of your current self and reflect on the things that are actually important in the larger scheme of things.
Don’t forget to exercise! Going to the gym or for even a short run will keep you mentally charged and physical active. You will keep your mind sharp and focused.
It’s too easy to get off track when consumed with wedding plans. Regain the satisfying sense of accomplishment and create a bridal calendar. This way you can easily keep track of important dates and milestones and help you maintain a cool, calm and collected headspace.
Never let the pressure of organisation affect your romantic relationship. After all, your love for each other is what it’s all about! Make sure you take time to enjoy each other’s company away from all the wedding mayhem and remind yourselves why you’re celebrating.
