Your big day is coming soon and I assume you are both excited and nervous about how things may turn out. So here are some things to keep in mind while waiting “patiently” to hear those wedding bells.
- Be a bride, not Wonder Woman.
Those kind of brides who devote every waking hour to wedding planning, refusing any offer of help will eventually run out of energy when the big day comes. How do you avoid this fate? You only have to practice self-care. People always want to help so accept offers of help from your trustworthy people. Also, do whatever it takes to help you unwind. That could mean a day off at the movies, coffee shops, a good old massage, or just anything that reduces your stress.
- Stay in good terms with your bridesmaids.
Bridesmaids are there to support you while you take your vows, and act as witnesses to this special occasion. They gather around you and help you out on your big day. They are your support system. But some brides demand far more – they give “maid” a literal meaning, ordering countless errands and other stuff to the poor bridesmaids. Be sensitive and put yourself in their shoes – or should I say, heels. Kindness always sows kindness. Also, don’t forget to have some fun with each other. Have a pamper day, get your hair and nails done and relax.
- Choose a good and accessible destination
The church or the place of your wedding must easily be reached by your guests. This principle must also be followed in choosing the place of your reception. As much as possible, avoid brewing travel trouble for your guests. You wouldn’t want your wedding reception to be guestless, would you? Aside from the inconvenience, the wedding momentum will be put on hold. But if you can’t avoid these time gaps, provide transportation and a spot for guests to entertain them while they wait.
- Rehearse your wedding look and feel
Practice walking around in your shoes a few times before your wedding day. It is not easy to fake a glowing bride’s smile when your heels are killing you and giving you blisters. Remember, too, that your wedding is a once in a lifetime event and you may want to look at your wedding photos one day when all your kids are grown up. Solace Hair Sydney can take care of your look for you.
All these small tips would help you a lot during your wedding, but always keep in mind that the best thing to do in facing this new chapter in your life is to feel genuine happiness, and of course – love.
