Brides: How to Get Over Wedding Anxiety

Guest Post:   If you are working alongside a wedding planner for your big day, then undoubtedly, you can totally relaxed about things going without a hitch. However, for some upcoming brides, anxiety can really interfere with the enjoyment of the experience – just the thought of the day itself, far from being pleasurable, can result in unpleasant feelings and sensations, including a racing heart rate, dizziness, or incessant worry that something will go wrong. In a way, some level of anxiety is to be expected – after all, this is the event you have dreamed of for a long time, a celebration that requires a considerable financial and personal investment. Therefore, you want it all to go smoothly. If you find, however, that anxiety is persistent and intense, considering the following ways to bring your stress levels down in the lead-up to your wedding:

  • Plan, plan, plan: Successful events ultimately come down to good time management. Rely on a highly skilled planner, who can anticipate any problems and nip them in the bud. There are numerous wedding apps available that will also help you organise everything from the invites to RSVPs, photographs, important dates, etc. It is so easy to accomplish all you need to do if you divide the event into smaller goals to be accomplished every day or every few days.
  • Delegate: Most of us have at least one or two trusted family members or friends that we know are responsible enough to take on tasks we delegate to them.

Helping the Flower Girl Feel Special

Guest post by: Lacey Blackwood

Other than the bride, the flower girl is the most anticipated and talked about participant in any wedding. From what she is wearing to how cute it is when she dances with the ring bearer, the flower girl is a large focal point of your big day. Regardless of how close you are to your flower girl, you should make a special effort to bond with her leading up to your big day.

 

 

Before you talk to her about being your flower girl consider buy her a picture book that details the experiences of being a flower girl. “The Little Flower Girl” by Linda Tracey Brandon is a great choice but feel free to shop around a bit and find a book that works the best for the two of you. Sit down with her to read the book and then ask her if she would like to be your flower girl! Not only will this create a special memory but it can also help your flower girl understand her role a little bit better depending on her age.
