You’ve been preparing for months —or even years—and now it’s finally here: the day of your wedding. For a successful wedding, it’s important to start your morning off right. Here’s how.
How to Prep
Eating a healthy, nutritious breakfast the day of the wedding is key. Try eating a combination of fruit, whole grains, and protein to keep yourself full throughout the day. Depending on your wedding schedule, you may not be having dinner until late in the evening. Don’t worry about eating carbs, either: if you’ve been cutting back in the months leading up to the wedding, it’s okay to have some on the big day.
In addition to breakfast, charge your phone to be ready for pictures and pack a small bag of essentials. Breath mints, a stick of deodorant, and tissues are all good to have on hand.
How to Reduce Anxiety
Anxiety and nerves are big on your big day. If you’ve been using relaxing breathing techniques in the months leading up to your wedding, you can incorporate them into your morning routine the day of the wedding.
Take the morning to prep with your bridesmaids or groomsmen. Make it relaxing by ordering catering and playing fun music. If you can, visualize having a successful wedding. Focus on the positives and the good work you’ve done putting the wedding together.
You might also consider cutting back on social media on the morning of your wedding. This could help you feel more present in the current moment.
How to Have Fun and Smile
Remember: your partner chose you because they like you the way you are. Don’t try to be someone you’re not on the wedding day.
If you’ve been doing a lot of the wedding planning yourself or with your partner, the morning of your wedding could be a great time to delegate tasks to your bridesmaids or groomsmen. With fewer things to think about and manage, you’ll be able to focus more on the day ahead and feel relaxed.
Regardless of how much planning you’ve put into your wedding, there might be some things on the big day that don’t go exactly as scheduled. This is not a reflection on you or your partner; it’s the nature of life. Remember to stay relaxed and positive no matter what happens.
In other words…
Your wedding is all about celebrating you and your partner’s bond. The morning of your wedding sets the tone for the day by being both prepared and relaxed.
