Weddings are one of the most eventful days in a person’s life. Needless to say, they are one of the most stressful, as well. Before your wedding day, you really need to calm your nerves. A bride or a groom cannot be frazzled during the wedding. Let’s give you some tips on how to keep yourself calm before saying “I Do”:
1. Make a schedule:
One brilliant way to keep up with all that is happening around you is to keep a schedule ready. Being organized can help you focus on what’s ahead of you instead of just rambling about. Know where your mates are, fix timings for every important ceremony and most importantly know where the rings are! Take stock of the situation and be in control. Make use of technology to store all important information at one place.
2. Have an emergency kit ready:
Be prepared for any contingency. Have an emergency kit with tampons, safety pins, bobby pins and hair styling and makeup products ready. Instead of freaking out, you can prepare for any disaster. If you know you have your resources, you will be calm as a cucumber.
3. Don’t forget the food:
You have to have something to eat! Your wedding is going to be hectic and skipping on food can make you feel tired, lethargic and woozy. Have carbs and proteins and foods high in fiber to keep yourself full.
4. Assess your resources:
Know your strengths and weaknesses. Know who are your trusted comrades and keep them close in case a panic attack starts. Preparation is the key. If you know you are prepared to handle anything that comes your way, you will definitely be calm.
5. Stay connected with your fiancé:
Your fiancé is the most important part of your wedding. Under all that pressure, it is very easy to lose touch with the person who matters the most. Squeeze in some quality time together so that it doesn’t feel too different. Talk about any issues that may be troubling you. Engagement anxiety can be easily busted if you talk it out.
6. Jot down your feelings:
You can express yourself, your anxieties and your emotions in a diary to keep calm. Jotting down everything gives you a perfect way to express your emotions. Think of a particular theme and write down each and every feeling that you have. It is a perfect way to let it all out.
7. Take care of yourself:
Remember, this is all about you. You have the full right to be selfish because it is that day when you would be person in focus. Nutrition, hydration and rest are very important to keep your calm. Last few days of the wedding can be really strenuous for the bride and pampering yourself can be the best way to calm your nerves.
8. Expect the unexpected:
Sometimes, the weirdest of things might happen at the wedding. No matter how prepared you are, something or the other may fall out of place. You should thus be prepared to face the worst. Remember, whatever happens won’t matter ten years from now when you would be fondly remembering the favorite day in your life.
Your wedding day is the most special day of your life. A few hitches here and there won’t matter later in your life. The best way is to enjoy your wedding without thinking about it too much and keep calm and say “I Do”.
