Many newly married women wished they had approached their wedding much more serenely. But how can you know beforehand what will be important to you later and what will not? That’s right, you can’t actually do that, but you can listen to what other brides have experienced.
Losing weight before the wedding
Whether you lose a few kilos or not really doesn’t matter. Your guests will certainly criticize a lot of things on the evening (but with a bit of luck they don’t do it in such a way that you get it). Maybe they would have found another location better, maybe they don’t like the soup or the DJ’s music selection, but with absolute certainty none of your guests will notice how tight your arms look and whether you’ve lost two kilos.
Just the thought of your loved ones dealing with your belly during your wedding ceremony is absurd. They will be moved by how in love you are. They will remember all that they have experienced with you and they will find that you look enchanting because you will shine with happiness.
Skin care before the wedding
You’re looking for enough sleep, plenty of water and desperately trying to adapt a facial care routine to give you the perfect glow on the day of your wedding. So in the last weeks before the big day, you’re busy wearing face masks. It’s just stupid that no one, really no one – including you – will notice a difference from before.
Do a facial when you’re after it, but just don’t worry about it. Masks are great to relax for a moment, but they don’t work wonders. You’ll be beaming with happiness on your wedding day, so comes the infamous glow of a bride. It does not come from any snail slime masks with gold extract.
One dress is enough
A huge industry has emerged around weddings. At some point in the last few decades, the focus seems to have shifted: Suddenly, the love of two people is fading into the background and a huge ceremony with bridesmaids, doughnut walls and sinfully expensive flowers in the foreground. Recently, designers are also trying to tell us that brides need two dresses: one for the wedding ceremony and one for the party. It is incredibly difficult to find a dress that you love and can afford.
Your guests come first
In the meantime, you may be tempted to classify a few small things as unnecessary for the guests, but believe me: any attention to your guests, however small, will not go unnoticed. Your guests will appreciate that you want to make the wedding as pleasant as possible for them.
So invest in a bar, put up a basket of blankets for the evening and distribute the flip flops to your female guests. And don’t just let your guests wait three hours while you’re at the wedding shoot. Guests who feel at home celebrate more exuberantly and you have an unforgettable party. That’s how both sides win.
Get some of the cake
Most newlyweds generally hardly come to eat at their wedding, and the cake is not excluded from this. They are the first to see them, they also cut them and eat the first bite. But most of the time it stays exactly there: a bite. Sure, most of the time you tasted the cake before the wedding, but you finally chose it because it was so delicious, it would be a pity if you didn’t come to eat it anymore. So give the groomsmen, your parents, or whoever the task of keeping a piece for you.
It will be the best party of your life
Your wedding is one of the few occasions, if not the only occasion, where you really have all your loved ones together and everyone is in a festive mood. Combine that with alcohol in abundance and extremely high levels of happiness hormones with you and your sweetheart and you have the perfect party. Enjoy every moment, you will remember this celebration for the rest of your life.
