I’ve had a number of people ask me if anything went wrong wedding weekend or if I was stressed. My answer seems to surprise folks because…I was not. I was truly stress free all weekend long and it was wonderful. I have a couple tips on how that whole stress free thing happened and thought I’d share them here. Per usual, I’m linking up with Jordon, Meredith and Mary and hope you’ll check out their blogs.
- Day of coordinator for the WIN! K and I debated about whether to use a day of coordinator. He thought we didn’t need one. Neither did my father. I was pretty adamant and overruled him. When we were taking pictures after the wedding, K turned to me and said, “best decision ever — hiring Hannah.” I agree. We used Hannah at Piccadilly and couldn’t have been happier. She is a personal friend but we chose her because she does an amazing job and it was by and large one of the BEST decisions we made. I had no worries all weekend because Hannah (and her assistant Tanya) handled everything. I trusted her completely and it resulted in a very laid back weekend for me.
- Just let it go. I’m type A, remember? This doesn’t come easy for me, but I made a conscious decision that when I woke up the morning before the wedding, I wasn’t going to worry about a thing. The weeks leading up to the wedding were very stressful and I knew that stress would ruin the weekend so I just let it go. I decided that whatever was going to be would be and knew that I couldn’t change anything at that late date. Letting it go was the best thing I could’ve done!
- Keep busy. I had so much going on the day before the wedding that I didn’t have time to be stressed or worried. It was such a fun time and it flew bye but since I was keeping myself busy, I just didn’t have time to worry.
- A little wine never hurt. The night before the wedding, I had a little gathering in my suite with my mom, grandmother, aunt, cousin, sister and a couple of my bridesmaids. We played music, had some wine and just had a blast. It was a perfect way to spend the night before my wedding day and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
Were you stressed the weekend of your wedding?
