With Wedding Season now kicking into full swing at EVENTS BY EMMA.
We thought we would share this important information with you and for our brides-to-be!
A lot of things go through a bride’s head on her wedding day. Will my dress fit? Will the day turn out perfect? Will everything be on time? It can be so overwhelming that you can forget to stop and take it all in.
As much as you try to prepare yourself for the big day stress is bound to happen. Here are some ways to manage stress on your big day!
Take a step back – Throughout the whole process, it’s important to enjoy it and not forget why you are doing it. Make every moment something to remember. It’s not everyday you get to dress up in a beautiful dress and be surrounded with everyone you love. Don’t wish for everything to be done!
Get lots of sleep– Sleep will help you feel re-charged and ready to go. Those late nights running over the guests list or perfecting any mishaps won’t help anyone. It will actually magnify your stress when you aren’t catching enough shuteye.
Stay connected with your Fiancé – You started this journey together and will be there at the end of it. Take some time to spend quality time together and do a date night. It will benefit you both through it all.
Take time for yourself – With everything that needs to be done, you may feel guilty in taking some time off for yourself, but in the long run it will make you much more productive. Find something to do that will take your mind of all the craziness. It may be going to get your nails done, taking a class at the gym, or just turning on the television. Whatever it may be will really help keep you centered.
Deep breaths – There may be a time where you don’t have that extra hour so taking a minute or two to just zone out and take a few deep breaths can help clear your mind.
Ask for help – It is so to take control and feel the need to take over because you want everything to be perfect. It is ok to ask for help and delegate some of the tasks. Not only will a load of stress be taken off of you, but also make others feel involved in your big day.
In the end, you have to remember that it is okay if things don’t go as perfectly planned. It is only normal for things to slip. Take things day-by-day, hour-by-hour, minute-by-minute and don’t forget to ask for help. Everyone deserves all the help they can get to create a day that they will remember forever.
