Your wedding day is probably going to be the most memorable, emotional, stressful and joyous day of your life. You will go on a roller coaster of emotions...from nervousness about the hair stylist showing up on time to anxiety about how your mother is going to react upon seeing you in your wedding dress to overwhelming love when you see your partner for the first time to stress about getting the photos done quickly enough to keep your guests engaged...back to love, back to stress, ultimately to relief and perfect joy.
So, you want to set yourself up to have not only the most memorable day of your life, but a day that you'll remember for how much fun you actually had. How much romance you felt.
Here are a few tips to help keep you calm, relaxed, and free of stress.
1. Take a Bubble Bath
The morning of your Arizona wedding, wake up early and take a nice relaxing, hot bubble bath. This will allow you to collect all your thoughts and just relax and enjoy the piece and quiet. It is important that you arrive to your wedding in Gilbert refreshed, rejuvenated, and with a clear head.
2. Eat a Hearty Meal
You will probably wake up the morning of your Arizona wedding and feel like you still have so much to do before it starts, like hair, make-up, and getting dressed. With all these feelings and things you have to get done, you may not feel hungry and forget to eat. However, eating a good meal packed with lots of carbohydrates and proteins will help calm you down and give you the energy you need, to last you until the reception.
3. Pack an Emergency Bag
There is always a chance that something unforeseen may happen at your wedding, so it is important to be prepared and pack an emergency bag just in case. This bag should include things such as, tampons, pads, hairspray, safety pins, stain removal pen, bobby pins, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and sewing kit. You will feel more at ease knowing you prepared for anything that may happen.
4. Create a Schedule
One way to be sure you arrive relaxed to your Arizona wedding is by creating a schedule for the day, the day before. Simply write down everything it is you have left to do before the wedding and plan it out so you don’t freak out. Do not leave yourself feeling rushed and overwhelmed; it will only cause more unwanted stress.
5. Leave On Time
You and your spouse are the main event at your Arizona wedding, so be sure to not be fashionably late. Allow yourself enough time to travel to your wedding location. You should give yourself an extra hour or two to prepare for anything unexpected. Two hours should be allotted per bridesmaid to get ready.
