How To Make Weddings Less Stressful!

There’s something very magical about receiving an invitation to a wedding. Someone you know is celebrating their love for another person and wants you to be a part of their special day. Now comes another exciting part as you start planning for the big day. You begin to root through your wardrobe in search for the perfect dress, to eventually give up and put it all back because you’ll decide closer to the time. For women, wedding fashionplanning can be one of the most stressful things to do, whether you’re the bride or not! Here are some tips on how to make weddings less stressful!


One of the first things that you should decide for definite is what dress you’re going to wear. This will allow you to plan the rest of your outfit around it, and give you time to buy accordingly, and maybe even lose or gain a few pounds so that your outfit looks as good as it does on the model! You need to consider what time of year the wedding is going to be, so that you can pick an outfit that will not only be appropriate for the season, but match it too. Knowing exactly where the wedding is going to take place might also affect your decision on what to wear too. For example, if you’re going to be attending a wedding on a beach, brighter colours are going to be much more in your favour than darker ones because of what beaches represent. Take everything into consideration so that you can pick out the perfect outfit, and then dress yourself with accessories around it too. This is one of the key tips on how to make weddings less stressful.

The next thing that needs to be thought about is how you’re going to have your hair. This can be one of the most stressful decisions for the day because you want to make sure that you have your hair just right for the wedding photos! Why not take a look at some cute updos and practise them so that on the day your hair will look bang on point? Plus, you may even find that as you’re practising new hair styles that you find your own spin to put onto it to make it unique. Don’t forget to pre-plan any colouring to be done just before the wedding alongside any treatments that you use on your hair.

Finding the right style of make up to rock on the big day can cause a great deal of anxiety too. There will always be trends in make up that come and go, and you don’t want to look back at the wedding photos and wonder why the hell you had cat flicks bigger than Tutankhamun. Sticking to natural make up looks will always go down well because you won’t look like you’ve plastered make up on your face, and can simply accentuate your natural beauty with make up!

Don’t forget that there are other ways to make yourself really stand out on the big day too that don’t include a great hair do and a killer dress. Making sure that you get enough sleep will ensure that your face appears brighter, more youthful, and of course is part of remaining a healthy person. Other important factors include:

  • Drinking enough water. Not nearly enough people drink enough water each day, yet it’s the cheapest and most effective drink that we can consume. It flushes out toxins from our bodies, helps with concentration, and will make your skin glow radiantly. So make sure that you’re drinking enough water so that you look your best on the big day.
  • Eating the right foods. Even if you’re not looking to gain or lose any weight, certain foods can cause us to break out in spots, give off a certain odour, and even become bloated. Avoid having any last minute embarrassments by making sure that you’re eating nutritious foods that won’t leave your skin greasy and spotty, and don’t run the risk of leaving you bloated and uncomfortable!

Planning a wedding can be stressful, even if you’re not the person getting married! Many people don’t realise what lengths some people go to just to look and feel their best on a special occasion like a wedding. Take these tips on board and use them to help you not only rock up to the wedding in style, but do it stress free as well! Most of all, enjoy yourself because love is the best and most important thing in the world, and it needs to be celebrated!
