No Need To Panic

I’ve been with Bright Star for a few years now I have gotten to see my fair share of the wedding scene and you better believe I have all the chaos ironed out for my future wedding day God willing I get married. 

It’s common knowledge that weddings operate as a high stress, zero-tolerance war zone. But no one likes a bridezilla, so let’s take a moment to talk about how to defuse the bomb that is a glowing bride. Here are my tips on how to have your day running as stress free as possible.

  1. Make sure someone who ISN’T YOU knows all the little detail before the big day. Have lunch with them, write it down and send it to them, either way someone else is going to have the answers so that no one has to ask you. This could be your MOH, a cousin, the coordinator, or someone you know will be hanging around all day.

  2. Delegate. Give out as many jobs as possible so there is no point in time where your people are panicking because they don’t know who needs to refill the lemonade. At the same time, don’t overwhelm any one person with too many tasks. Don’t abuse your power, be nice to your friends.

  3. Lists help. Make lists and start them early, that way you don’t have to be worried about forgetting something

  4. Eat a snack. I don’t know about you but I’m known to get hangry. And when things are running high stress anyway, the angry jumps out more than the hungry. I forget that running on low to know fuel changes my mood. So don’t just not eat because you want to look amazing in your dress. You look amazing anyway, eat a piece of fruit please.

  5. Take a moment. Go be by yourself, maybe call your future spouse or pray or take a nap. Anything that will help you mellow yourself out. On your day you are allowed to be selfish and do whatever you need to do to make sure your mood doesn’t turn sour.

Take my advice or don’t. Ask for more in the comments or drop ways that helped you be stress free. Have a great weekend!
