Today we want to focus on brides to be. We understand that you as a bride to be can experience enormous amounts of stress during the wedding preparations. These clever tips for a bride-to-be are designed to help make your big day somewhat easier.
You want to look amazing on the day of your wedding. But if you’re considering making drastic changes, such as intense tanning or changing your hair colour, you should know that altering your look so significantly can be a mistake. You want to look your best but still be yourself. Remember to think twice.
On the big day, it’s a good idea to have three pairs of shoes with you: heels, wedges and flats.
It might seem excessive but you’ll be grateful for the backup plan in case you need a rest halfway through the day! And if you buy new shoes, remember also to break them in well ahead of time.
We understand that food may be the last thing on your mind on your wedding day. That’s why we recommend you have some healthy and filling nourishment before it starts. Take a few minutes in the morning or in between the hair and makeup sessions to eat something filling. Keep a toothbrush handy ?
The typical wedding day begins quite early. As a bride, there is always someone coming to you with a ‘quick question’, a well-wisher or someone ready with a camera. In such circumstances, it can become difficult to keep your energy levels up. Carve out some alone time in the morning to recharge your batteries. That can make all the difference and help you to be more relaxed.
It’s your wedding day, and you don’t want to miss a thing. Take some deep breaths to clear your mind and try to enjoy every single moment. You may even ask your officiant to include a few of these “deep breath” moments in your day, so you can soak up all the love and joy.
Imagine an invisible string pulling at the top of your head. This practice helps your body to elongate, your shoulders will start to fall back naturally and you will look ten times better in a matter of a few seconds. As a bonus, it will also ease your breathing.
To release any tension, take a moment before you walk down the aisle to close your eyes and think positive thoughts. You will feel serene and appear more relaxed.
You want the wedding speeches to be ‘new’ to you on the wedding day, but you also want to be sure that the speeches aren’t long, boring or even (gasp!) inappropriate.
Even though it’s your wedding day and most people realise that you only have a few minutes to chat with each guest, there could be a few people who want to talk your ear off. Make sure you appoint a trusted person to politely pull you away from these chatty guests when necessary.
This is the happiest day of your life, so let your joy shine through. This might sound like silly advice but stress can do strange things to people. Besides all, when you smile and think contented thoughts you might find that any stress dissolves and you can carry on enjoying your special day.
