Our Top Tips To Reducing Stress On Your Wedding Day
There is a certain degree of pressure related to wedding and wedding planning, especially during the lead up the big day. At Megara, we go to great lengths to ensure our couples are as relaxed as possible, so they can slow down, take stock and really take in the moment.
Below are some of our top tips to make sure you make the most of your most special day.
Don’t sweat the small stuff
Not everything is within the realm of your control, so the higher your expectations, the greater the disappointment. It is important to remember, that come rain or shine, it is your wedding day and come the end of the ceremony you will be married. Children may not follow instructions, friends and family may forget their duties or timings, but remember everyone is their because they love you and offer their support and encouragement.
Don’t be a people pleaser
You know what they say about opinions, everyone has one. Accept that friends and family may have their own opinion of how your wedding should be. You will never please everyone, so don’t try to. Focus on what brings you joy and what means the most to you. It is your wedding at the end of the day.
Don’t be a bridezilla
So often we see brides get so carried away with the wedding planning, they forget all about their other half. It is so important to stay connected during this time, and continue to talk about other life day to day life events. Post wedding blues are a real thing – don’t fall into the trap.
Accept you may not have a Kardashian style wedding. Be content with what you can afford. There is absolutely no need to start your married life in huge debt for a one day celebration.
Don’t neglect your health
it is so important not to let the planning of your wedding consume you. Stay fit. East healthily. Go for walks or exercise with a friend. Get enough sleep. Wedding planning can be stressful so it is super important to find an outlet for that stress and to keep a healthy state of mind.
Don’t forget to ask for help
No one will think you are any less of a superbride if you ask for help. Find a family member or trusted friend that can assist with some of the preparation. Give them a clear instruction and then trust they will execute the task in order with your vision.
Deal with time pressure
Assume that tasks take longer than expected and plan for that accordingly. Spread out your tasks over a few months instead of cramming everything into the last few weeks, it may work in other areas of your life, but we promise wedding planning is not an area you want to experiment with.
Don’t forget about your relationship
We see countless couples that are so focused on the wedding, they completely lose site of their relationship. Seek professional premarital counselling. Remember your wedding lasts a day, the marriage is for life.
Don’t forget to have fun
Laughter is the best medicine and our personal favourite stress reliever. If things go wrong, learn to see the funny side of it. Yes your wedding is an important day in your life, but only one day. Try to see the bigger picture and we promise you will be a happier bride for it.
