The morning of your wedding can be stressful, to say the least. There’s a huge build-up to the big day and when it finally arrives, you’re waking up with mixed emotions. It seems as though there are a million different things all happening at once; timelines to stick to, people coming and going, all of which are combined with your emotions. So, to make the wedding morning more of a relaxing place, here are a few helpful tips.
Set some time aside (preferably the night before) to give yourself a little pamper session. Run a bath with oils to let yourself relax and if you want, why not add some rose petals? Light a few candles, play some music and just allow your mind to calm down. It’s important to enjoy the here and now, rather than going over every detail of the day to come.
Remember to eat
Most brides say they are too nervous and anxious to eat but it’s important to get some food in you. A breakfast bowl of granola, yogurt and fresh fruit with a mug of herbal tea will be perfect and it sets you up nicely for the day. Avoid having stodgy foods as these can make you feel a little queasy if your nerves are heightened. To make it easier, order your breakfast via room service the night before so it arrives first thing in the morning, making it one less thing to worry about.
Leave extra time
Things can happen on the morning of your wedding that you didn’t account for so make sure you have plenty of time to spare. Aiming to be ready an hour before the ceremony starts means that you can be relaxed with your bridal group, rather than rushing around like a headless chicken. If you are doing a first look with your parents or have to travel to the venue, schedule in extra time so you aren’t late.
