Are You Planning on Having Fun at Your Wedding?

Reposted from the Threshold Visions e-zine.

I've seen it many times, the bride and groom are so nervous and concerned about everyone else on their wedding day that they spend the day worrying.

I've seen it, too, where the bride is so caught up in the last minute details it takes her until the 2nd course before she settles down.

You've spent lots of time doing your research, meeting vendors and choosing the best people work with. Each of your vendors should be experts in their field. Let them do their jobs. You've got to trust and let go.

Do all your preparation, make your lists, have meetings with your vendors and be sure they understand your vision. Then when the big day comes sit back and enjoy what you've created. Let it wash over you like a beautiful wave. Let it flow. Some things may not go exactly as planned, but no one will know except you. So just stay in the moment and take it all in.

One of the biggest keys to making great wedding photos and portraits is to just relax. Allow yourself to be comfortable and enjoy. This is the way to ensure you look your natural best. Make sense?

And the more your guests see you enjoying yourself, the more they enjoy themselves, too. The last thing your friends and family want to see is you stressed out on your wedding day.

It is so important to enjoy the day that you have been planning for 6 months, 9 months, 2 years, or more! You put your heart and soul into this day, and the advice I hear over and over again from trusted vendors: breathe. Make sure you remind yourself throughout the day to take notice of what's going on (even if you have to get your Maid of Honor to hit you over the head and make you pay attention :-). Live in the moment. You only get to live this day once so make sure you surround yourself with people who are passionate about doing a good job, and MAKE SURE YOU HAVE FUN! I guarantee if you are having fun, your guests will be having fun, and no one will notice that a different white wine was served or that Uncle Art hit the bar one too many times.
