Relaxation Tips for the Big Day

Most brides will feel jittery and nervous on their wedding day; not only is it one of the biggest days of their life, but there’s the fear that things won’t work out or something will go wrong. Use these simple tips to ensure that you’re having a great time and you’re able to enjoy the moment rather than worrying.

Deep Breathing

The first technique is relatively simple. When you’re starting to feel stressed out, inhale deeply for 10 seconds and then hold it for 5 seconds. Now, exhale slowly for 10 seconds and repeat until you feel grounded and relaxed.

Let Go


Realize that even if something were to happen (the caterer serves the wrong drink, the DJ plays a song from your do not play list), it will be okay. It will not ruin your wedding day or your marriage and when the day is done, the man you love will be your husband. Plus, it’ll be a fun story to tell. Just let go of the need for super control and realize that you have to trust in other people.

Stay in the Moment

When you feel your mind wandering and you’re worried about a million different things, start consciously noticing things around you. Notice the beauty of your wedding dress, the colors of the candles and flowers on the table, the smiles on your friends’ faces, etc. Bring yourself back to the moment and take in everything around you with grace and gratitude.

    These are effective tips that will help a bride calm down for her special day! I also feel that before the wedding, the bride should spend a little time with her friends, so that she can feel more relaxed.

    I love the elegant black and white photography in your post.

    Your tips are great. Women dream of this day for so long that when it finally arrives they are so pinned up with nervous emotion they can hardly enjoy it to the fullest. Breathing is a great way to pause and remember how amazing this time is. It is a once in a lifetime memory you can cherish forever, if you just calm down a bit.
