You may have seen my Instagram post a few weekends ago when I was at a Bachelorette party for my cousin’s fiance. Well, they are getting married this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited. In honor of all the wedding talk, I wanted to share the best wedding day advice I received. Even though Kevin and I got married six years ago, I still remember the day so clearly and all of my feelings.
Planning a wedding can be fun and exciting but also stressful and tiring. You will remember your wedding day for the rest of your life, so it is understandable that you want it to be perfect. However, you want to be sure that you are focusing on the right things. Here are 5 pieces of wedding day advice:
Hand Your Phone To Your MOH
This was one of the best practical pieces of advice that I received. Everything is less stressful when it comes from your best friend. Let me give you an example. Your mom is calling you stressing about the florist being late and you have three small centerpieces instead of three large ones – you hear her tone of worry – you aren’t sure what to do – you start stressing. Your best friend answers your phone, tells you small centerpieces have arrived instead and suggests you just spread them out – you agree – she handles it – the end. Its just so much better. You don’t hear stressful tones, and you can be relaxed.
One of the biggest things I have learned in marriage is the power of prayer. I am a firm believer in praying for your marriage even before its official. Take time to be in prayer in the morning and throughout the day on your wedding day. Starting your marriage with the right tone and dependance on God is so important.
Don’t sweat the small stuff
Just go with the flow. You have done all the planning and now you can’t control the rest. Take everything as it comes and just go with it. Your guests won’t know a candle is missing or even if you forget the guestbook. There are just certain things you can’t control, don’t let them bring your day down. Improvise and let others handle the small stuff.
Focus on each other
You should just focus on each other and having an amazing day. I have heard so many times that couples barely saw each other on their wedding day from being pulled in different directions. Make sure this doesn’t happen to you. Try to stay together as you navigate guests and make time to even sneak away together for your own special moment.
Laugh. Enjoy yourself. Have so much fun. Dance the night away. Oh and eat your wedding food!!
