Important Tips for a Stress-free Wedding
After hosting many weddings at Cotton Gin No. 116, we’ve become very familiar with the different stressors that brides can feel. There are a lot of things to remember to do on your wedding day.
With such a frenzy the day of, it can be easy to lose focus on your big day if you don’t take a little time to prepare for the unexpected.
Don’t worry! We’ve compiled our top 5 things to remember to do on your wedding day that should help cut down any stress that may be creeping in.
Get to Bed Early the Night Before
It’s easy to get butterflies the night before your wedding and maybe even a little anxiety, but that’s not unusual. It’s a very big step in life after all.
Do not go out partying! I repeat, DO NOT GO OUT PARTYING!! You do not want to be hungover on your wedding day, save the rowdiness for the reception.
Start relaxing early, consider a bubble bath and candles for a very calming vibe. Or maybe some yoga, if that is what relaxes you best.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day for a reason, and “they” don’t lie.
Stick with something light and healthy so you’re not feeling uncomfortable once your wedding dress is on.
Fresh fruit is a refreshing way to restore your glucose levels after a nice restful evening. Plus, if you opt to include some melon in the mix, you’re already onto the next tip!
Your hydration levels can directly affect your mood, and you’ll want to be happy on your wedding day.
Along with the previously mentioned melon for breakfast, make sure that you’re drinking enough water throughout the day. Not only does it help your mood, being properly hydrated will improve the appearance of your skin, and who doesn’t want to be glowing on their big day?
And don’t forget that you’ve got a whole evening of celebration ahead of you, sip some water between alcoholic drinks to help prevent a hangover the following day.
Pack a Wedding Day Emergency Kit
When you pack a wedding day emergency kit, you’re just planning for the unexpected. Anything can happen and you want to be ready.
We recommend some items such as a Tide-to-Go pen for any spills, some additional make-up if any touch ups are needed, and a mini-sewing kit just in case.
It’s a good idea to have a snack on hand as well. Since your breakfast wasn’t too heavy, you may need a little pick me up at some point. It’s always good to be prepared!
Most Importantly – Have Fun!
Though this should be obvious, it can’t go without saying, you’ve got to enjoy your wedding and things may not go exactly as planned, but you’ve got to have fun.
Take mental pictures of the highlights and you’ll find that there are a lot of them. Soon you’ll have a whole photo album in your mind of the special moments.
This probably is the number one thing we like to ensure when we have a wedding at Cotton Gin No. 116 in Brookshire, TX – your big day is all about you and your love, enjoy it!
