Calming wedding day nerves

There can be pressure on a bride to look perfect on her wedding day. How do you stay calm and look lovely all at the same time? Some advice I've heard, is to drink half a glass of wine on your big day. Others suggest leading up to your day, to exercise to get rid of the excess energy. And as a bride who is starting the planning process, I thought it would be great to remember...

Months and months of planning can all lead to this one picture, where the bride looks like she doesn't have a care in the world. Please can I look like this?

Ask and accept help leading up to and on your wedding day. BridalGuide.com teaches about budget suggestions, flower tips, lovely cake ideas, ideas and etiquette.



Try to stop and enjoy each moment. Instead of focusing on say the seating charts, you could focus on all of your loved ones being together.





Here's another great tip for brides, try the website WeddingWire to find wonderful and reviewed vendors in your city.

Try to have nothing to do on your wedding day, except to show up and enjoy.

You could always run around the garden with a flower girl. Can't you feel her stress melting away?

What are some of your suggestions to brides on staying calm and centered? Doesn't everyone feel a wedding is a big party? Oh and if you haven't read this post, I'd love your feedback about changing your name after you got married. On behalf of brides everywhere, thank you!

Just a half a glass of wine? Haven't done the walk down the aisle yet but I'm all ready. Just yesterday I told a co-worker all we have left to do is have fun. The best advice is to get everything done ahead of time, don't leave anything to the last minute. Hire people you know will be able to difuse any and all crises! Beautiful pictures!

from what I understand, it takes lots of money spent on the wedding to look this carefree. LOL
