Nobody plans to be bad-tempered, or grumpy on their wedding day, yet we see them often – the unpleasant, difficult and perfectionist bride who holds family, friends and especially wedding vendors to ransom, all in the name of having a perfect wedding.
Planning a wedding rouses a cocktail of emotions capable of making you mutate into a Bridezilla, so before your wedding, take some time to reflect and ask yourself, what kind of bride you want to be. Will the Bridezilla awaken in you? It’s your choice. Be the bride you want to be with these tips;
Acknowledge the fact that you can’t do everything by yourself, so delegate every aspect of the wedding to people who can take care of things, while you are busy being the bride. Trying to be involved in everything on your big day will only leave you overwhelmed and cranky.
Plan, Plan and Plan.
Don’t leave any stone unturned about the necessary arrangement for the wedding; make sure you crosscheck your checklists few days before the wedding to be sure you didn’t leave anything out. Also be on the same page with your vendors to avoid any surprises that may ruin your mood, be sure they understand exactly what you want and that they have the expertise to deliver their services with professionalism.
Surround Yourself With Positive People.
From your bridal train to the friends that will be around you, make sure they are truly happy for you and will do anything to make the day a success. Enlist solid friends to be by your side, friends that will protect you from negative and pessimistic people who can rouse the bridezilla in you with their attitudes and comments. Your girlfriends should put themselves second on your wedding day, so they can be there for you 100%.
It’s Your Day, Enjoy It
Don’t be nervous and fidgety; because your friend’s wedding cake collapsed doesn’t mean yours will. And in case something goes wrong accept the fact that no matter how checked-off your to-do list is, sometimes surprises are inevitable. Let go of your perfectionism and be delighted by spontaneity, be peaceful be calm, and have great fun.
You should never take your comfort for granted when shopping for your wedding dress, shoes and other accessories. When you are convinced on the cuts, fabrics, styles and colors that will enhance your figure and make you feel great, go for it. Don’t allow someone to talk you out of what works best for you and think twice before you make compromises. It is very important that you feel comfortable on your wedding day; it will be a lot more exciting when you are in a high spirit and you feel really good about yourself.
When you are planning your wedding you will have an overwhelming list of what to do, and because you are trying to do as much as you can in a short while, it could leave you exhausted. Don’t go on with that feeling of exhaustion. No matter how tight your schedule is, find a peaceful and private time to be alone with yourself. Spend time alone to refuel your spirit, think, meditate, pray, and escape from the stress of planning the wedding
Re-assure yourself of your goals and what you want to achieve, you will sure feel refreshed and energized ready to face your big day with inner joy. Carving out time for a ‘quiet time’ can seem an unattainable luxury, yet it is within your grasps if you really want it.
