Hi all, I'm getting married this summer and I was wondering if anyone had any advice to help keep nerves at bay!
I've been seriously stressed about everything and it's been affecting my relationship lately. So was just wondering what some of you wonderful people have done to keep themselves from turning into Bridezilla haha

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! on May 04, 2015 @ 03:09 pm

Don't be afraid to ask for help; that's what your bridesmaids are for. I'm certain that everything is taken care of and all you need is to relax and take care of yourself. Keep working out to look amazing and make sure to have some quiet time with your fiancé to do the activities that you both enjoy. This is a special time for both of you and you should discuss your hopes and dreams together to make the upcoming day even more meaningful.

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! Make sure to post a photo. We'd all love to see how incredibly beautiful and radiant you will be.

Oh how wonderful and excited you must be! Congratulations to you both and may you have a blessed life together. It is so important to take time for yourself and just do something for you, like a spa treatment or even hiking. Things will be different after you're married, so just remember to treat each other how you want to be treated and don't argue over petty things that don't mean nothing! Take it from someone who's been married almost 20 years, it's still a work in progress. Never take each other for granted. Continue to still have your "date" nights, up til the wedding, that way you will still be close. And remember to always tell each other I Love You every day. Those 3 little words goes a long way. Please do show us all a photo of your precious day. It will be magical and don't stress much and let everything fall into place. Congratulations again, Ginger.

Ask for help! on May 04, 2015 @ 05:04 pm

Don't be afraid to ask for help from family, friends, bridesmaids, etc.
These people usually WANT to help, but people are afraid to ask

While it's good to ask for help from friends and family, the one thing that stressed me out the most was people trying to get me to do things I didn't want to do. All of the unwanted, pushy advice was what stressed me out the most. Just say thank you, even if people are bugging you, and move on. Hopefully that reduces some stress. Also don't worry about the tiny details. You're not going to remember the tiniest little things. Focus on the important details, and if you have time later for the small stuff, do it then. Congrats!

Assign someone to help keep you in check. Everyone has natural self-soothing methods, talk to a friend or family member that can recognize yours as well as your anxiety and help you out. It's also important not to let the wedding consume your life. Yes it's important, yes it will be amazing, but it is still only 1 day (or 1 week, depending on culture). Take time away from wedding prep, especially with your partner. Try something new together like rock climbing, paddle boarding, pottery, or a cooking class.

Enjoy the day! on May 05, 2015 @ 11:25 am

Don't over do it. Enjoy your day. Allow yourself time to visit with your friends and family. The decor can be personal but inexpensive. Ask your friends to help. They Weill love to be part of it. Wedding cake???? A lot of people are renting or making a false cake for pictures and serving another. Makes sense. One couple could not afford to invite everyone to the reception, so they invited them to the wedding only and had cupcakes and punch at the church following the ceremony before taking off for pictures. This allowed others to celebrate and gave the bride and groom time to acknowledge and visit with them. Also, a simple way to number tables is to have a small frame of pictures of the bride and groom at the age they were at the number of the table. Example at table no. 4, there would be a picture of the bride and a picture of the groom when they were 4 Yeats old. Enjoy yourself!!!! If you are ready going, be ready going at the wedding. Don't put yourself in a position where you cannot enjoy the day!

Congratulations!! My sister is getting married this summer too. Her tips would be to get as many things done and checked off your list asap. Make sure you stay organized and budget your time. Remember you do have a maid of honour and bridesmaids to help out whenever possible! I have the lovely duty of being my sister's maid of honour, every week or so I will ask her if she needs any help! It's so nice to have very supportive friends and family.

Good luck with all the planning, and remember to have fun. You don't want to lose sight of what you are working towards. A wedding is a once in a lifetime day!! So special :)

congrats!!! my sister is also getting married this summer. just ask for help thats a great way to not get so stressed. don't over stress yourself.

Great Advice! on May 08, 2015 @ 12:53 pm

Thank you everyone for your advice! I have a hard time asking for help. But I know I will have to, my mom and I have been doing a lot of the work. My maid of honour has two kids and never seems to have free time and my other bridesmaid works shift work and is hard to get free time. So mostly DIYing and taking it a bit at a time.
I have been working on date nights with my fiancé and not getting overwhelmed with wedding plans.
Thank you ????????
