There’s a lot of planning that goes into making a wedding successful and memorable, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the details. Location, date, and venue must be reserved months in advance, and then there’s food, entertainment, and extras to be reserved before you even send out the invitations. While it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of planning you should take a breather now and then and just relax. Whether it’s a day at the spa or a weekend getaway, try and take a break every month or two just so you don’t lose your mind trying to make things perfect. While you’re relaxing try not to think about your big day; that way your memory will be refreshed too and you’ll find it easier to remember the little things that will make the day special.
One thing to keep in mind is the actual day of your wedding is going to be long. If you can sleep regardless of your excitement level, you’ll most likely get up extra early anyway so you can start getting ready for the big event. That means if you have a few minutes during the day you should sit back and rest as much as possible, so you’ll look refreshed throughout the day.
Many brides and grooms don’t really think too much about their accessories and leave those details to their attendants. Here’s one area you should pay attention to: your shoes. The actual shoes you wear during the ceremony may be more for looks than function, so don’t get caught wearing them all night if they pinch your feet. Brides can stash a pair of ballet slippers or similar shoes for wearing at the reception; the groom should look for a comfortable pair of dress shoes if he needs to switch from his formals.
The only thing you really have to remember is to keep it low-key. As long as your shoes don’t clash with your outfit and venue no one is likely to notice, and you’ll be able to dance the night away in comfort with your new life partner. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
