7 Tips for a Stress Free Wedding Day


When it comes to your wedding day it should be one of the best days of your life focused around you and your new spouse. Unfortunately, however, weddings can also bring stress but that doesn’t have to be the case! Here are 7 tips in mind for a stress free wedding day in Salt Lake City. 


7 Tips for a Stress Free Wedding Day

Hire a Wedding Day Coordinator

The prep work does not stop, even on your wedding day. There are numerous decisions to be made and many details to confirm. Regardless of how on top of it you are even the best game plan can go wrong.  That is where your wedding coordinator steps in. From coordinating with your vendors, ensuring that the wedding day timeline is being followed to the setup and takedown of your event. Their job is to make sure that your big day turns out to be exactly how you envisioned it. Is a wedding day coordinator not an option? Reach out to an organized, responsible family member or friend to help you out.

Create a Wedding Day Timeline

Timing is everything when ensuring your wedding day runs smoothly. That is why we recommend mapping out a wedding day timeline. When creating your itinerary, we recommend starting from scratch and being as detailed as possible. How much time will you and your wedding party need when getting ready? Is there enough time set aside for family photos? These are some of the many questions you will have answered when outlining your timeline. While this may not be the most appealing part of wedding planning it will guarantee that everything goes as scheduled.

Eat a Yummy Breakfast

There is so much excitement on your wedding day! So much is going on around you that you may not even have time to yourself. The last thing on your mind as you’re getting ready is the urge to eat. Wedding days can be long which is why eating a well-balanced breakfast and staying hydrated is our number one tip. Don’t feel the need to eat? Smoothies, toast and oatmeal are some of our quick and easy breakfast favorites!

Prepare a Wedding Survival Kit 

There is no such thing as over-preparation. We know the unexpected can happen on your wedding day. That is why our wedding coordinators are always prepared at every event with a wedding survival kit in hand, packed with the essentials. These of course are not always readily available at every wedding. In order to avert a crisis, we recommend creating a kit that fits your wedding day needs. When filling up your kit, think of items that would be great backups. You may need to touch up your makeup throughout the day. One of your bridesmaids has had a small hair mishap and is needing an extra bobby pin. Or your new spouse to feel a sudden headache coming on during the day’s festivities. While this kit may not help in every scenario it will come in handy when needed.

Give Yourself Enough Time to Get Ready

Getting ready for your big day should be the time for you to relax and take it all in. Yet for many, it can be the most stressful and rushed process if not enough time has been allocated. Hair and makeup may take longer than expected. There may be unexpected traffic that delays your arrival at the ceremony. Giving yourself more than enough prep time allows you to be in the moment with those around you and not feel overwhelmed if things are behind schedule.

Confirm Details with Your Vendors Beforehand

Your wedding vendors play a huge role when it comes to ensuring your wedding day is a success. To make sure you both are on the same page we strongly recommend speaking with your vendors two weeks before the wedding. Some of the important details to confirm with your vendors are the arrival date, time, and location. Even with a game plan lined out your vendors may still have questions on the day of the wedding. Providing them with an emergency contact that can help them if needed will help alleviate your stress.

Be Present

Your big day can be a whirlwind and it is so easy to get caught up in making sure that everything goes as planned rather than being present and enjoying this moment of your life. Trust in those you hired to help make your wedding day special. Accept that things may not go as planned. Put away any distractions and cherish this time with your loved ones who came to celebrate this day with you.
