Organizing a wedding can be more than a little challenging, and as the big day approaches the last thing you need is to be inundated with stress. You have more than enough to worry about, and it should be the happiest day of your life (or at least the beginning of the happiest days of your life). So what can you do to keep the stress down? Simple, take care of some minor details and keep things running smoothly. Here are some ways to take the stress out of your big day:
1 – Keep your appetizers sweet and simple
Ok, we know, you really want to blow your guests away with your appetizers, but is it really worth the stress? Combine that with the meal you no doubt have planned and you can just end up over-stuffing them. Keep to fresh and dried fruits, easy to assemble Hors d’oeuvres made from store-bought ingredients.
2 – Keep all the kids in one place
Yes, people are almost certainly going to bring children to your wedding, so make sure they have a place to entertain themselves that won’t interfere with the festivities. Include coloring books, crayons, pencils, and paper plates. Sweets are always a winner but expect those to disappear before dinner.
3 – Speaking of Simple
Keep your place settings simple, don’t let them become one more stress you have to worry about or become overly elaborate. Sure those folded napkins look amazing, but who’s going to spend the time to get them right and get them done? Instead, keep it down to simple decorations.
4 – Rellllaaaaaaaax… Relax… Chill.
Before the big day undergoes its start, make sure you give yourself an hour or so to settle your mind and focus on the details ahead of you. Light the candles, get the music started, and when it all comes down to it you’ll be relaxed and so will they, that attitude is infectious.
