Many couples are under pressure to have the happiest day of their lives when they get married. While getting married will definitely be a huge event in your life, you might be surprised to find out that many people don’t class it as the happiest.
The tips here will help you to have one of the happiest days of your life, but make sure you have realistic expectations!
Invite The People Most Special To You
Make sure you invite all of the people most special to you to share your day. While this might seem obvious, many people only get invites to weddings because the couple feel obliged. Don’t invite a long lost third cousin because you’re afraid of offending somebody. It’ll cost you more money, take up more space, and you won’t have a better time.
A day filled with all of the incredible people in your life will be much better. Only invite people you feel really good about inviting, even if your attitude is ‘the more the merrier’!
Personalise It In Any Way You Can
When you personalise your wedding, you make it all about you. Don’t just copy somebody else’s wedding, or have a wedding that somebody else wants you to have. This day should be personal and special to you. You can personalise it so many different ways. How about picking unique wedding invitations to set the tone?
You can DIY many things to put your own special touch on them. Give this day some of your personality to make it stand out. Your guests will remember it for all of the right reasons this way.
Take Your Other Half’s Opinion Into Account
Although the bride does most of the planning, you should still take your other half’s opinion into account. Some may not mind as long as you’re happy, but it’ll be good to make sure they have a few things personal to them on the day too. Maybe you could include a favourite colour of theirs, or something even more personal.
Brainstorm with them and see what you both agree on. Try not to turn your nose up at all of their ideas. If you watch wedding planning programs where the groom takes control, they often surprise the bride and put on a really good day. You might be surprised at what they can do!
Don’t Forget Why You’re Doing It
Don’t forget the real reason you’re getting married. It’s to spend the rest of your life with the person you love most. If you lose sight of why you’re doing this, it can be easy to get stressed out and angry about things that don’t even matter in the long run.
This is why many brides turn into a bridezilla. Be happy about the fact you’re marrying your soulmate.
Take Your Time Putting The Wedding Party Together
You want to have the best, most supportive and helpful wedding party there is. They’ll make the day better by giving speeches, helping you out, and being great sports in general. Take your time so you have a team of amazing people with your best interests at heart.
Don’t Stress About Things Out Of Your Control
You’re bound to have at least something small go wrong on your big day. Or maybe not quite to plan. Sorry to break it to you, but it’s true! Try not to stress out about these things. They don’t matter in the long run, and chances are nobody has even noticed.
The best thing you can do is laugh about it, and keep the atmosphere positive.
Live In The Moment
Take in every moment of your wedding day. Don’t worry about the future or things you may have forgotten. Breathe and focus on the moment right now. You’ll really savour the day this way and have the best time. It really does fly by!
Look Forward To The Future
Although you want to live in the moment, looking forward to the future is a good idea too. Your wedding day is just the beginning of your lives together. It isn’t the be all and end all. You’ll have many happy days and memories to come, so don’t feel disappointed if time doesn’t actually stand still for you on your big day.
These tips will help you to make the most of your big day. Weddings are expensive and take a lot of planning, so don’t neglect to really take it all in. If things go to plan, you’ll only get the one!
