If you are someone who has quite a lot of nerves for your wedding day, then here are some tips on how to feel less stressed on your wedding day and more confident.
Take dance lessons
If your biggest fear is stepping onto the dancefloor and taking your first dance in front of lots of people, then it can help to take some lessons before the big day. This will help you feel looser and more confident when the time comes.
If you lack dancing skills or simply want to feel more confident on the big day, you could take specific wedding dance lessons to go through your moves or seek inspiration for what moves to use for your first dance.
Only surround yourself with those that you care about
A lot of people can feel stressed and nervous about their big day because there will be a lot of attendees. If this makes you nervous or uncomfortable, then it might be a good idea to narrow down your list. After all, it is your big day and it should be everything that you and your partner want, not what your family and friends want.
A smaller list could make you feel less stressed and anxious for the lead up to the big day. Ensure to surround yourself with those that you care about and feel your best self around.
Get plenty of sleep
It might be difficult to get to sleep the night or in the lead up to your wedding day. This can be quite normal, especially if you are nervous. It is a good idea to try and implement a nighttime routine so that you find it easier getting to sleep and staying asleep.
The average adult needs between 7 and 9 hours each night. So, if you can achieve that, then you will likely feel much better on the big day. Getting enough sleep can naturally reduce stress, which will be key if that is how you are feeling.
Make sure everything is finalised
Wedding plans should be finalised before the big day. Otherwise, you might leave room for things to go wrong, which could make you incredibly stressed and/or significantly impact your big day.
Therefore, it is a good idea to make sure everything is finalised before the day, or as early as possible. This will give you some time to relax and unwind to relieve the stress before the wedding.
Speaking of relaxing, you should make time for plenty of it before the big day. Self-care is the best way to relax and unwind, which you will need if you feel stressed or anxious.
Giving yourself time for relaxing baths, getting your hair done, and having time off of wedding planning can help you regain your confidence.
Buy a dress that suits your shape
Although you might be head over heels for a certain dress, if you don’t feel great in it, then it probably isn’t the best one to make you feel your most confident.
Buying a dress that suits your body shape is bound to make you feel your best self. It is important to try on as many wedding dresses as possible, especially some that you wouldn’t typically go for. This will ensure that you find the special one and can feel your most confident self on the day.
The same goes for a suit. If you are wearing a suit, then buying one that you feel your best in will ensure to make you feel more confident on the day as well as on the lead-up.
Don’t give in to pressure
You might get a lot of pressure from family, friends, or wedding planners about what you should and should not do for your big day. Although some advice is important, it is best to not give in to pressure. You might end up changing your plans and therefore, not getting your dream wedding.
Ensuring that you plan according to what you are your partner want will make sure that your big day fulfils your dreams and that you can feel more comfortable and confident throughout. It is your day and therefore, it should involve everything that you have ever dreamed about.
