It's Your Special Day: 4 Tips To Keep Your Wedding Day Stress-Free

Your wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. Unfortunately, last minute snafu's and other unexpected events can leave you feeling stressed out and frazzled. Don't let last minute complications keep you from having the wedding you deserve. Here are four simple steps you can take to keep the stress out of your wedding day.

Stick with What You Like

It might seem like a good idea to try something new right before your wedding. However, when you're trying to alleviate stress, the last thing you need is something new to learn. If you're planning a last-minute way to relax, stick with what you like. If you know that a walk in the park usually perks you up and shakes away the stress, plan a relaxing walk in the park the day before your wedding.

Don't Micromanage

If you're trying to micromanage the entire wedding, stop. It's okay to stress over the vendors you're choosing, but once you've chosen them, it's time to stop. As soon as you've hired your vendors, let them get to work. Go ahead and shoot them off an email to make sure things are progressing smoothly, but avoid making daily phone calls. You'll stress yourself – and them – out.

Let Someone Else Plan the Rehearsal Dinner

You've planned the entire wedding—you don't need to plan the rehearsal dinner too. Let someone else take over the plans for that. In fact, the rehearsal dinner is the perfect event to put the groom's family in charge of. That way, all you need to do is show up and enjoy yourself. When it's time to head home for a good night's rest, you can say your good-byes and leave.

Designate a Go-To Person

The day of your wedding is going to be stressful enough without worrying about all the details that might go wrong. Designate a go-to person to take care of those last-minute details for you during the wedding ceremony and reception. That way, if the DJ doesn't show up, or the cake is the wrong color, you won't have to deal with the problems. You can relax and enjoy your special day.

Don't let your wedding day be filled with stress. Follow the simple tips provided here to keep stress to a minimum. Above all else, remember that your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you should get to enjoy every minute of it.
