Abbey Springs - How to Enjoy Your Wedding Day

There’s a great deal of time and effort involved in planning your wedding - from choosing the wedding venue to finding that perfect dress. Hiring a photographer, finalizing the guest list, selecting the menu - the task list goes on and on - and suddenly, one of the most important events in your life is just around the corner.

With all this planning and preparation, it is understandable that you want to savor every minute of your wedding day - nevertheless, it is entirely possible that stress and worry could creep in and stop you from enjoying your beautiful celebration. However, the good news is that you have absolute control over this particular aspect of your big day.

Last Minute Reminders

Whether you’ve chosen 4” stilettos or rhinestone studded gym shoes, it’s really important to wear-in your wedding shoes ahead of time. As soon as you buy them, wear them around the house for an hour or so for several days, then, give them a longer test to see how long you can wear them and still feel comfortable. If you don’t normally wear heels, you may need to bring a pair of flats to change into after - aching feet or a painful blister on the back of your foot are things you definitely want to avoid.

Beyond breaking in your shoes, you’ll want to make sure you feel comfortable from head to toe on your wedding day. It will be difficult to enjoy anything if you are constantly adjusting your strapless bra or fussing with your train.

Aside from eliminating any potential issues with your wardrobe, plan on doing as little as possible during the week of your wedding. This means making sure that your welcome bags, escort cards, and any other DIY projects you are planning to create are done well before you walk down the aisle.

If you set the tone with a restful week - perhaps enjoying a spa day with your bridal party - you will find yourself in the perfect frame of mind when the big day arrives.

Day-Of Recommendations

Start your day with a good breakfast and make sure to take a break just prior to putting on your dress for a quick snack. You’ll need the energy for the long day ahead, and the last thing you want is your growling stomach to steal the show.

Plan on taking a few minutes after the ceremony to sneak away with your beloved to enjoy this special moment and bask in newlywed bliss - in the bridal suite or another private room. Let your planner or caterer know ahead of time - so they can arrange for you to enjoy some champagne and a sampling of your hors d'oeuvres during your short respite. Make sure you have some bottled water available as well.

On your wedding day, you’ll want to be totally present - without daily distractions vying for your attention. To this end, experts recommend leaving your phone in your purse or with your maid of honor, best man, or family member. You won’t need it for pictures, as your hired photographer will be at your side, and any of your friends and family who might text or call are likely to be there in person anyway. It is definitely a day you can afford to cut the cord - so to speak.

Lastly, remember this is your big day - it’s finally here and you’ll want to cherish every moment and have a good time. Trust that you’ve done everything you can possibly do to make this beautiful celebration proceed without a hitch, and instruct your wedding party, your vendors, and your planner to take care of any minor issues that may arise. It truly is time to focus on enjoying the fruits of your labor!
