Make sure your big day is organized, stress-free and — most importantly — fabulous.
Weddings, these days, have become gala affairs.Planning your wedding is one thing. Making sure that the day itself is a success requires a whole new level of strategy. There are tasks to delegate, hair and makeup to think about, a schedule to stick to, people to organize and multiple last-minute details to attend to. All of these responsibilities on top of being a bride can seem overwhelming, but making sure everything falls into place with minimal anxiety is easier than you might think.
Allow plenty of time for everything
Be careful to not try to do too much on your wedding day. It’s tempting to want to schedule in as much as possible to make the most of a day that will likely fly by, but doing so can create unwanted pressure.
Your wedding breakfast, having your hair and makeup done, and your post-ceremony photo shoot will all take much longer than you think. Don’t cram your day full of activities for every second, keep calm and breathe. You and your guests will be totally exhausted, and you possibly won’t get to everything.
Try not to keep your wedding guests waiting
Being the bride might mean being the star of the show, but that doesn’t mean it’s OK to deviate from the schedule to the point of making people wait.
Ten minutes is the ideal length of time to keep your guests waiting. Anything beyond 15 minutes is consider plain rude. The longer people have to wait, the less relaxed they become and the more off-track the whole day can get.
