Bridezillas have something of a bad reputation when it comes to getting married and there are many horror stories that focus on normally pleasant women turning into complete monsters in a bid to try and make their weddings as special and perfect as possible. Of course it’s understandable that you might get nervous on your big day and really it’s sweet to want things to go as well as possible, but if you can’t relax even a little bit then you’re going to find yourself quickly losing friends and alienating the people you need at your wedding – possibly even the groom.
One way to avoid this happening is to make sure that you keep focused on the things that really matter at your wedding rather on the things that seem to matter so much. Is it really the end of the world if the food doesn’t taste perfect? No. As long as everyone has a good time and you have a great day that creates a lot of happy memories. Here we will look at some of the things that really do matter.
Everyone Gets Along: Making sure everyone gets along is something that is out of your control to a degree as people will get on or not depending on whether their personalities gel or clash. However you can help this along by making sure that your seating plan takes into account who gets on with who and by creating a generally stress-free environment so that there is little cause for argument.
Everyone Feels Welcome and Appreciated: It’s of course very important that you enjoy your big day as a bride and that’s why you’ll get a free pass on some occasions when you’re a bit nutty.
However, it’s also important to think about everyone else and to make sure that they enjoy the day – particularly the groom and your immediate family. Help them to do this by thinking of them in your planning (don’t choose food that you know no one will like), and by using wedding favors. Likewise, try to put aside some time (I know you’ll be busy), just to go over and say hello and thank you.
Nothing Goes Horribly Wrong: What counts as horribly wrong? Well the church burning down would probably count as something going horrible wrong, as would getting stuck in traffic to the point where you don’t actually make it to the wedding at all. Make sure you use a good wedding limo service, and avoid any kind of naked flames…
You Get Married: Ultimately what’s most important is that you get married to the person you love and show that love in the time-honored tradition.
While everything else can go awry, you can almost always rely on this part going right. In that sense then, there really is no reason to worry and if you focus primarily on this aspect you’ll find that everything just kind of falls into place and the whole wedding has a great feeling of love and happiness.
