Weddings are wild. They are emotional rollercoasters that combine excitement, nervousness, terror, stress, and joy. It’s in your best interest to take a deep breath and relax. Here are some things you can do that might help you with that a little bit.
Pick Clothes That Make You Feel Confident
The dress code and the aesthetic for a wedding are essential. That doesn’t mean that it has to be expensive, complicated, or demanding – but it can help a lot with the atmosphere. It’s in your best interest to wear what you like. Talk about the vision you have for clothing with your future spouse. Find options that you both can agree on. Make sure that you look and feel good in them. Some people will work out vigorously in the months leading up to the wedding to look their best. You may or may not want to do that, but even if you don’t, there are definitely clothes out there that will help you look your best.
Meet Your Photographer
Photographers and videographers are super important because they alone will provide the content that you will use to look back on the event – besides your memory, of course. Meeting and getting to know your photographer beforehand can help you feel confident in their abilities. Breaking the ice with your photographer helps make things more comfortable on the day. You can ask them about their photography experience and some of their favorite work. In turn, your photographer will feel valued by you (because hopefully, they are), and will want to give you the best material possible. People subconsciously want to make good material for those they have a connection with.
Rely on Trusted Loved Ones
Weddings don’t have to be all you. You don’t have to plan it all. It doesn’t all need to have every little detail be perfect – because frankly, that is impossible, and you will only stress yourself out by demanding that outcome. Don’t hesitate to delegate. Your friends and family that have experience with weddings can be a great help. Your future spouse also should cooperate in practically everything you do. Don’t be intimidated by the workload; what’s important is that the people you love are there.
The best wedding you can hope for is a wedding where you are far happier than you are anxious. Plan everything as far in advance as you can. Take comfort in knowing that, no matter what happens, it’s going to turn out wonderful.
