Fabulous Wedding Advice
You’ve been planning your wedding for the last 12+ months and it’s finally here! Every detail has been attended to. All the logistics are planned. You just had the best bachelorette party EVER! And now it’s time. The moment you walk down the aisle to join your life with the man of your dreams is here.
So why do you feel so nervous?
There are many factors that go into why your emotions are on overdrive on wedding day. It could be the realization that you are now going to be a wife. It could be that you are worried about how the day will play out. You could just be flat out nervous and not even know why! Here is some FABULOUS advice on how to stay calm, cool and collected on wedding day:
Start with a nice long bubble bath. This is a rare treat in a world where we are always rushing and taking quick showers. There is nothing like sitting back, closing your eyes and relaxing into the tranquil waters of a warm bath. Enhance the experience with lavendar bath salts and candles and some soothing music to set the tone for relaxation.
Eat a good breakfast. Even if it’s a small one. Be sure to include carbohydrates and protein. I can’t stress to you how important it is to get something in your belly. It’s so easy to get caught up in the activities of wedding day prep, that this very important meal gets skipped. There is nothing worse than getting woozy or fainting on your wedding day for lack of food. A good breakfast really does help get your day started right. Be sure to have a detailed schedule complete a few days prior to your wedding day, showing exactly what’s going to happen when. The more organized you are, the less you’ll have to stress about. Your wedding planner is well equipped to create this for you.
Prepare an emergency kit for those unforeseen disasters. Include a sewing kit, safety pins, extra hosiery, bottled water, saltines, breath mints, sanitary napkins, etc. An emergency kit may come in handy and should be readily available if needed. It’s so important to have items that are readily available if unexpected circumstances arise.
Rely on your wedding planner. After all, that is why you hired her. She can get the gowns to the chapel on time, transport any necessary personal belongings, oversee the setup of the ceremony and reception site and even handle guest relations. She is not an option but a Godsend on wedding day! You can be completely assured of a perfect wedding day by hiring a wedding planner who knows and understands your needs as a bride.

Leave for the ceremony with plenty of time to spare. One of the worst feelings on your wedding day is to feel rushed. Allow a decent cushion so that you can relax, knowing that you will be ready on time and in your calmest possible state of mind.
Allow yourself plenty of time to get dressed. Bask in it! How about a pre-wedding indulgence? I stress to all of my brides the importance of spoiling yourself a little before the wedding. Invite a mobile massage therapist, manicurist, makeup artist and/or professional hairstylist to the wedding site and be the Queen that you are!
Expect the unexpected. I’m not preaching doom and gloom here. Yes, things may go wrong, but if you face the day with a cool head, a sense of humor and a positive attitude, you can pull it off without a catastrophe. Your wedding planner is there, on hand to help deal with any emergencies that may arise.
ENJOY YOUR DAY! After all, it does belong to you and your groom!
