The big day of eternal vows, something old, something blue, champagnes and kisses is one of the most important days for a bride. A bride is always looking forward to this day in her life the most. But the wedding preparations and arrangements might leave you feeling less of a bride and more of a worker. The days of cake tastings, decor meetings, dress trials and bachelorette parties, can leave you feeling very exhausted and beaten. But that’s what weddings are all about, a lot to do in a short period of time.
Finally when the day is here, you definitely don’t want to be feeling stressed out and tired of all things related to the wedding. You are the bride, the lady of the hour, it’s your day and you need to feel the same butterflies you did when your better half proposed and you were giddy with excitement to get married. Everything needs to be perfect and the most important people in the wedding are the bride and groom, so take charge of yourself on your wedding day and feel your best with some helpful tips.
1. Morning Exercise/ Yoga
On the day of the wedding, wake up and do some light physical exercise or Yoga. Physical exercise releases endorphins in your body which make you feel uplifted and good. It’s a brilliant idea to start the day with some happy hormones in the body, but also don’t overdo it. Don’t exert yourself with so much exercise that you yawn during the wedding ceremony. So make sure you do just enough to make you feel refreshed and ready to take on the day.
2. Eat Well And Stay Hydrated
It’s very important for your body to feel good from within and the key to that is having all your meals at the right time and eating right. Stress eating and craving for junk food is very common when you’ve got the big moment just few hours away, but try to curb your hunger and quench your thirst only with healthy food and drinks. Eat a lot of fruits and food that is rich in protein to give you the energy you need. Keep some nutritional bars handy and lots and lots of water. With all the hustle bustle of the wedding day going on around you, you may forget the last time you had a sip of water. Keep a bottle or a tumbler handy and keep sipping water. Dehydration can really take a toll on you and make you feel weak and dizzy the entire day.
Make sure you try on the dress for a final fit at least 6 hours before the wedding for any, just-in-case, kind of wardrobe emergencies. Also, since you’re the bride, you should not only look good on the outside in your wedding dress, but also feel good on the inside. Shop for some bridal wear lingerie and feel the soft silk and lace on your body, after all everything about you should be perfect, so why not the lingerie? Make sure you shop for your bridal wear lingerie from a lingerie brand that also specializes in bridal wear, like Blossom lingerie. To make you feel extra special, Blossom lingerie also offers garters for weddings and other occasions like proms, parties etc. They also offer shape wear, suspender belts, everyday lingerie from brands like Fantasie, Freya, Panache, Prima Donna etc. so if you’re looking for additional lingerie wear of reputed brands for your dress to fall perfectly on your body, make sure you try these out well in advance.
Shoes are very important on the wedding day. If you’re planning on wearing brand new heels on your wedding day, to ensure that they don’t cause any discomfort or shoe bites on the day of the wedding, try to break in them few days before the wedding and if they do cause you pain, identify those places and apply some vaseline or any petroleum jelly on that area and leave them overnight. Do this for two or three nights and hopefully they should feel better on the wedding day.
If you can manage to, then take out some time just for yourself. Sit back and take in a flashback of all the moments of your life that you have passed to reach to this moment, the bride moment. After the many sleepless nights you’ve spent planning for this moment, the moment is here, so take it all in and get ready to walk down the aisle, become a wife and most importantly, smile.
