How to enjoy your wedding day

When all that hard work and planning comes to a head, and your big day finally arrives, it can be so easy to lose yourself in worry. It’s easy to get lost in the stress of the day, rather than the joy. But your wedding day should be all about celebrating love and enjoying yourself.

We’ve listed some tips to help you really enjoy your wedding day and help you avoid some of the common wedding day mistakes.

1. Ensure you eat!

Having something to settle those butterflies in your tummy can be crucial.

It’s going to be a long day, so you’ll definitely need that bit of extra energy from a good breakfast to help keep you going. It may seem obvious, but so many people skip breakfast and feel their energy fade just as the photos start. Make sure you eat; you’re going to need that fuel.

2. Put that phone away.

Being present on your wedding day is so important. One way to do this is to ditch your phone. Although it may need to make an appearance later to capture those all-important bridesmaid selfies, try to leave your phone for the day (if possible). It can be another source of stress and distraction, and those are things we want to keep to a bare minimum on your special day. Getting sucked into your phone could stop you from soaking up the atmosphere of the day and lead you to miss out on some magical moments with the people you love.

3. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Problems can happen, plans can get changed, it might even rain! As hard as it is not to focus on all the details, try to remember the main reason for your special day. To celebrate a marriage. It’s a day based upon happiness and your love for one another. As long as the day ends with you married, it’s been a perfect day.

4. Break your new shoes in.

High heels. A thing of beauty, but ten hours in heels can be hard work and painful! To help prevent this, try to wear your shoes in before the big day. Hopefully, this should prevent you from getting those typical new-shoe blisters and your feet can adjust. If all else fails, pack a pair of flats or trainers for the evening.

5. Sing and Dance

What’s better than a day surrounded by your nearest and dearest, celebrating love, and having endless amounts of fun? Get your favourite songs playing, grab your friends and family, and dance! It’s a day when the people you care about the most in the world rally around, and are all in the same place together, so make the most of it!

Most important of all, soak in the beautiful day and celebrate. Let yourself be completely in the moment, and stress-free.
