Relieve Stress by Remembering These 10 Things About Your Wedding
Your wedding should be a special day! You shouldn’t look back on it and be unhappy with how it turned out. You should look back and remember a beautiful joyous day.
Here are some things I think you should remember when planning your wedding and during your wedding. These 10 things will help you keep sane and remember why you’re getting married in the first place!
1. It’s your wedding day.
Don’t let other people tell you how it should be. If the parents have an idea you truly hate, don’t do it. It can be that simple!
2. Guests are just guests at your wedding.
If they can’t make it to your wedding, it’s upsetting but don’t let it ruin your wedding. They’re also always with you in your heart!
3. Don’t stress about the small stuff.
In the end, your wedding day should be about marrying the person you love. Keep that in the back of your head when things get tough.
4. It’s okay to have a small wedding.
No one said you have to invite your entire extended family (whether you know them or not), all of your coworkers, acquaintances, etcetera. Sometimes it’s the small intimate weddings that are the best.
5. There isn’t a rule on how many bridesmaids/groomsmen you need.
Sometimes it’s better to have none! Do whatever you feel is right; I promise you will make the right decision.
6. Remember to stop and smell the flowers!
Literally and also figuratively. Take the time to really enjoy your day. The day will be gone before you know it. Enjoy it while you can! Take in every minute of it.
7. It’s fine to have an uneven number of bridesmaids to groomsmen.
Again, it’s your day….If it works for you, that’s all that matters. Just because someone else might not want their wedding that way, doesn’t mean you can’t have it that way. It also does not look silly in photos. Photographers see wedding parties of all sizes, they will know how to work with your wedding party to get perfect wedding photos.
8. Make sure you get some alone time with your new husband/wife.
Everyone will understand if you slip away for a bit. It’s really important to spend some time together. This day is all about the two of you after all!
9. It doesn’t matter if your MOH is a male.
This is 2017, not 1917. Things are different now, and that’s okay. Your wedding party should consist of people who are important to you! If they don’t fall into the traditional wedding party idea, it’s not a big deal anymore.
10. Most hiccups will go unnoticed anyway.
Hiccups happen all of the time. It’s just a part of life. If you do notice a hiccup, don’t dwell on it. If you dwell on the little things, you’ll miss so many good things about your wedding. In the grand scheme of things, it won’t matter anyway. YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED!
Have a great wedding day! Sit back and relax!
