The months leading up to your wedding day may be some of the most stressful of your life. It is a constant wheel of deciding whether each investment is worth your hard earned time and money.
There are your usual expenses for a wedding (venue, photographer, etc.), however there are also small things to invest in that will give you that peace of mind you are craving on your wedding day.
Below is a short ‘bride guide’ on what and what not to focus on to relieve some of that stress!
…make a survival kit
As nerve-racking as this may sound, accidents are bound to happen, that’s life (even on your special day)! Accepting this fact will only further your preparedness and allow you to take each accident with stride as they pop up. Come stocked with mini deodorants, a small sewing kit, and even some mints! Refer to this hefty list of essentials that can be packed in your kit!
…invest in a sturdy bra
Your comfort is priority #1 on your big day! How do you expect to enjoy that fluffy cake, or show off your killer dance moves when the wire from your bra is piercing your rib cage, or your strap is hanging off your shoulder? Finding a bra that seamlessly fits under your elegant gown, yet also supports the girls, is so important! Save yourself that annoyance, and spend your money right!
…show your gratitude
During the chaos of the wedding day, it can become extremely difficult to express your immense gratitude to all of your loved ones. Investing in a bottle of wine for your maid of honor, or writing heartfelt letter to your parents before the chaos begins, can go a long way.
…try new things
This may seem like odd advice but it may very well be the one that saves the day! Trying a new beauty routine or a new genre of food the days leading up to the wedding could affect you in ways you did not anticipate! Research a beauty routine that works for your skin and hair, weeks or even months ahead, and stick to it! And let’s be real, you can save that mexican food for the honeymoon!
…overlook back up shoes
You may think that you have found the most comfortable pair of wedding shoes, and I’m sure you have! However, almost every pair of shoes can give you that uncomfortable feeling after a few hours! Investing in a pair of white sandals with bling will give you the chance to bust a move in style and comfort.
…forget to enjoy yourself
Congratulations! You did it! From the centerpieces to the DJ, you have mapped out every inch of this wedding and it’s finally time to enjoy the big day. You made the right decisions, and it’s time to catch up with family members, and dance the night away with your new hubby! It’s easy to get lost in the chaos this magical day can bring. It is always important to remember why you’re there and spread the love!
The most important thing to remember is that you are surrounded by people who love and support you! Enjoy this beautiful moment with your partner and try some deep breathing if it ever becomes too much!
