Before the Bride’s Big Day:
5 Tips for Brides Before the Wedding Date
For the brides, marriage is both a fun and sad event in their lives. A lady will surely miss her family because eventually, she’ll start a family of her own with her groom. It’s fun for women because a whole new chapter is about to unfold in their lives. Getting to spend each day with uncertainty and happiness with the one you truly love is an exciting feeling.
Eventually, it all comes down to the wedding day. Many people will get to see how beautiful the bride is, and how handsome her groom is. Family, friends, and other relatives will surely get to witness a once in a lifetime event that two of their loved ones will get to experience personally.
Pleasantries aside, both the bride and groom want to ensure that their wedding day will be one for the ages, and an event to remember. Both parties will need a lot of preparation for this event. Here are some tips for the bride, to make sure she does her part in making their wedding memorable.
Have Fun with Friends
If you think bachelor parties are unfair, then you’re right. Why does the groom get to have all the fun before the wedding? With that said, you can also throw a bachelorette party with your friends. As with every party, dress well and have fun. Show to your friends you’re confident and ready for your wedding by dressing confidently.
One way to do that is by wearing accessories for your party. A Gaga Milano Manale on your wrist tells that you’re ready to have fun, despite having a big day ahead of you. A dress that’s an awesome fit for you tells them you’re confident with your body come wedding date. Remember, have fun responsibly. It’s easy to get carried away when you’re having a lot of fun at a party.
Water is Your Best Friend
Weddings are events that tire out even the healthiest people. Try to keep a bottle or a glass of water nearby so that you don’t get dehydrated with all the stress involved in the ceremony. There have been a lot of cases where both the bride and groom pass out on the aisle because of dehydration.
Don’t let this scenario be the reason your wedding becomes memorable, drink up, and avoid other liquids such as wine, alcohol, caffeine, and other beverages other than pure drinking water.
Writing a Short Love Letter
The night before your wedding day is ironically the last time that you’ll both be known as boyfriend and girlfriend. The next day, you’ll be known as husband and wife. Although some traditions and beliefs don’t permit brides and grooms to see each other the night before their wedding, nothing is in the rulebook of trying to communicate with each other.
Try writing a short and sweet note on a post-it and have someone send it to their suite or room. Writing is often a good way to release a bit of stress and nervousness before the ceremony. It’s also a good way to show your partner that you’re eager to meet him on the day of your wedding.
Sleep isn’t for the Weak, It’s for the Bride
There’s no denying that when you get to bed, you stare at the ceiling and think about what will happen at tomorrow’s ceremony. This constant thinking and worrying are the reasons brides wake up as a disaster the following morning. Having a good night’s rest is ideal for a bride.
Avoid stressing about certain situations that will probably not happen at all. Your wedding is supposed to be fun and memorable. Don’t let stress and a sleepless night ruin your big day. Try getting into bed as early as 8 or 9 p.m. That way, when you try to toss and turn, you’ll still have enough time to get some well-deserved rest.
Keeping Cell Phones and Social Media Away
The night before the wedding, there’s no doubt that your phone will ring and beep because of many people congratulating you. Your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all other social media platforms will be full of notifications about your big day.
Keep your phone on silent or let someone like the bride’s maid hold your phone for you before the wedding. Not to sound rude, but the priority at hand is making sure that the bride is ready for the big day, not replying to a random greeting from friends.
Many people, especially your groom, are waiting for the most beautiful woman: you. To be the most beautiful bride, one has to prepare. You want to look your best. A wedding certainly isn’t a cakewalk, but it’s one of the most important occasions of a person’s life when he or she embarks on a whole new journey with someone they love.
