Firstly, congratulations on your upcoming wedding day; this is a time to get excited, and to enjoy the planning and preparation process so that you can both make some magical memories together.
Whatever your style, however big or small your special day will be, and wherever it may be; you’ll want to feel as confident, happy, and excited about everything throughout the celebration, and, on the lead-up. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that your happiness and wellbeing are looked-after during the planning process so that you can ensure you both arrive feeling your best.
Weddings can have a bad reputation of being a stressful event to plan. And, while there’ll always be a list of things to tick-off, and last minute alterations to sort-out; you can still make a positive aspect of the whole affair. Yes, really! It’s crucial that you keep your wants and needs as a couple, as a priority; don’t let the influence and opinions of others affect how you approach anything. Remember that it’s your big day, and not theirs, so make the most of it. Fortunately, there are plenty of things that you and your other half can do to prioritize what’s important; celebrating your love for eachother, and staying calm and happy. The following are some ideas, inspiration, and advice for those who are engaged, and want to get ready for their wedding day in style so that they feel amazing when the special day arrives.
Invest in Quality Time Together
It might sound strange to think about investing in more time together, before you head towards tying the knot. However, things can feel a little overwhelming on the run-up to the wedding, for one, or both, of the partners involved, and couples can start to feel a little distant, resentful, and silly disagreements can happen more often. Therefore, by investing in some some special days, evenings, or weekends, together, will ensure that you remain strong and united as a team before you both say “I do”. You can incorporate the wedding into your special time too. Perhaps you can head somewhere special for a night away, near where you’re going to try the wedding food, or the cake you like the look of. Things like this will ensure that both parties feel part of the whole experience and have plenty of positive associations on the lead-up.
It might be that it’s time to choose your engagement or wedding rings together, especially if your other half wanted you to have exactly what you wanted. A company like Tacori has artisans who craft extraordinary pieces, so you can spend some free time, browsing their selection together, and choosing something truly unique and special to you both. Again, it’s a great way to solidify the fact that your wedding belongs to you both, and you’ll keep strengthening that bond bit by bit, which will always leave you feeling your very best.
Choose Things to Suit Your Personality
The best way to do your wedding in style is to choose things that are packed with your personalities and character. You and your guests will always appreciate the feeling that the celebration couldn’t be about any other couple, but you. And, planning those big and little touches together will always put a smile on your face, easing the potential stress of the cost or planning process. Therefore, it’s time to use some of that quality time you’ve both set-aside together, to list the things that you feel are most important. This will allow you to discuss things calmly, make any changes (and compromises) needed, and prioritize what you want to achieve. Make sure that you have a budget, a contingency fund, and some back-up plans; anything you can do to ease the pressures of everything, will assist you both in feeling good about the whole thing, not worried.
This is the part that can be the most fun. Whether you’re both into movies or music, foodies in general or a specific cuisine or drink, or you love the idea of hand-making everything for your big day; focus on these things and make the most of them during the festivities. Sorting out the entertainment for your wedding could be a great to chance to reminisce about how you met, or hosting a pre-wedding party with your friends can be an ideal way to test run some canapes and cocktails. There are no set rules to your wedding, other than the ones that you create. So, get all the inspiration you can, enjoy the whole thing, and turn-up feeling your best!
