It’s Your Wedding Day!

Wedding planning has been ongoing for months, years in some cases, so it’s natural for a bride to face a crush of stress on the big day. Here are a few things a bride can do to reduce or eliminate stress on the wedding day.
1. Be Sure
It may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s not unusual for a bride to get cold feet because of an uneasy feeling that she’s making a mistake. This can be the most difficult stress to eliminate because the financial commitments already in place can make it feel like there’s no turning back, so any uneasy feelings get stuffed down as “cold feet”. It’s important, however, to spend some time alone making sure the marriage is taking place for the right reasons and not out of a feeling of being trapped. The reality is that most often when a bride really examines those nagging feelings, the come to the conclusion that they are, in fact, making the right decision. Being certain helps to alleviate stress by putting the entire event into perspective. Certainty allows the bride to realize that the important thing is entering this lifetime partnership and any details of the ceremony and reception that don’t go exactly as planned are simply unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
2. Hire A Wedding Planner
If your budget is tight, it’s easy to skip the expense of a professional wedding planner, but this may be a mistake. Often times, a professional wedding planner can provide cost-savings over and above their fees. A wedding planner knows what venues, catering, decorations, etc should cost and will either already have relationships that allow them to receive favorable pricing because of the volume they deliver to the vendors or to negotiate from a place of knowledge and logic rather than emotion. All of this can add up to significant cost savings. Even if a having a professional wedding planner increases the overall price of the wedding, the benefit of not having to handle every little detail so the bride can focus on only the best parts of weddings can be hard to measure.
3. Hire a Bridal Makeup and Hair Stylist Professional
