Weddings can be hectic events, especially for the bride who pretty much, more or less, organises the whole event – unless there is a wedding planner involved, but even then the bride needs to oversee all the minor details. Amid all the chaos it is highly likely that the bride will lose her “cool” at some point and staying cool and calm is crucial for the smooth functioning for the whole event. The following tips are just some of the ways that brides can maintain their “cool”.
Be prepared well in-advance
It is always best to begin the planning as soon as possible and stay well ahead in organising. Firstly, it’s best to decide on the major details such as: wedding location, wedding reception themes, people taking part in the wedding etc. After decisions have been made on these details, the minor details can be looked into such as: bridal dress, groom’s outfit, maid of honour and bridesmaids’ dresses, food to be served at the perfect reception etc.
Make a schedule and stick to it!
Making a schedule is critical to meet the date set for the wedding. Put down all the dates for every little detail from the bridal gown fitting to the cake tasting, this way you will know what happens exactly on which date. Sticking to these dates is very important; these dates should not be moved around to accommodate other things. When one thing is postponed it will have an effect on another appointment and so on creating a ripple effect which ends in chaos and ultimately the bride losing her cool.
Understand that you cannot control everything and everyone
As the bride you tend to think everyone will somehow obey you, sadly that is not the case. Not everyone will understand your needs or work to accommodate all your needs, for example: the florist may not have made the arrangements exactly to your specifications or the caterer is delayed, and these kinds of things tend to really stress the bride and make her most definitely lose her cool. To avoid having to deal with these minor issues, one thing to do would be to get a wedding ceremony hire involved. Essentially, they will take care of the major part of the wedding that involves the small yet significant details.
Enjoy the happiest day of your life
Your wedding is the day that a new chapter of your life begins. With all the stress of the event, brides forget this. Take a deep breath and look around at the festivities that celebrate the start of your new life. Put aside all the chaos and stress that led up to the day and enjoy all your hard work with your husband. You are the bride and this is you day!
