Now that you are engaged, you are likely excited planning your dream wedding, and perhaps even anxious to get to the altar, already. But before your wedding day arrives, it can be helpful to heed some sage advice, about how to save yourself undue stress so that you can actually enjoy your big day! From choosing bridesmaids to hiring vendors, here are just a few ways you can help to ensure your entire wedding is not only a success, but a nearly stress-free experience for you and those you love!
1. Hire a Day-of Coordinator
Even if your wedding budget doesn’t allow for hiring a full-time wedding planner leading up to your wedding day, hiring a day-of coordinator can be a huge help. In fact, it is nearly essential. Wedding planners or designated day-of coordinators help to see brides’ visions come to life, by overseeing decorating, vendor arrivals, and other last-minute details, so that the brides can actually be present and enjoy each moment.
If you don’t want to stress your mom or maid-of-honor out by asking her to oversee all the stuff that will need to get finished on the wedding day, hiring a wedding day coordinator or planner can prove key!
2. Hand Off Your Phone
Whether you give your phone to your planner, or a close friend (preferably one who is not in the wedding), it’s incredibly important to pass your phone off, or turn it off altogether, hours before you are to exchange your vows. This way you’re not worried about giving guests last-minute directions, or fielding any other questions other people could easily answer.
This is also the reason many wedding vendors request detailed timelines and emergency contact numbers for the wedding day.
