Taking the Drama Out of your Wedding Day

Taking the Drama Out of your Wedding Day
June 21, 2016

Weddings are famous for being a time of extreme joy and happiness, as well as high stress and anxiety. To keep calm, there are a few steps you can take during the planning stages to make certain that you remain happy--even if your day has a few snags and bumps along the way.


First of all, get plenty of rest. A tired bride makes a grouchy bride. Be sure to get some shut eye to help keep any "Bride-zilla" tendencies away. You'll be happy and the people around you will be happy as well.

 Learn to delegate. Having a team of reliable family and friends around you who are willing to help you will alleviate a lot of your anxiety. You know those girls who gladly said “yes” when asked if they wanted to be a bridesmaid? They aren’t called “Attendants” for nothing. They are there to attend to your needs and help and support you on your special day, not just look good in their bridesmaid’s dresses. 

Miscommunication. Despite our best intentions, miscommunications can occur and tempers will flare. To avoid saying things that you may regret later and to keep your wedding party from doing the same, consider taking a time-out. When a situation starts to feel it is getting out of hand and you are going to lose your cool, take a 10 or 20 minute time out. This will give everyone involved to reflect and make sure that the friendship remains intact.

Patience. And lastly, be patient with your soon-to-be husband.  Men don't typically feel the same rush of excitement over shades of blue, floral designs, and registering for gifts. In fact, the only part of the process they can really sink their teeth in are the appointments for the food and cake tasting. Try not to get upset and take your anger out on him if he doesn't seem as excited as you are. He is excited, but he probably has a different way of showing it. Take a deep breath and remember that he is in love with you and has committed to being at the church when you get there!

Finally, remember what this day is truly about . . . Saying "I Do" to the man you want to spend the rest of your life with.
