Dear Bride -to- be ,
Are you wondering how your wedding day will look like? You probably have a thousand and one thoughts running through your mind right now. Its normal, This article is to help you relax.
Every bride wants their wedding day to be perfect, but that strive for perfection inevitably leads to stress. A study was carried out among 1,000 newlywed brides, and revealed the 20 top worries brides have when getting married.
How many on this list can you relate to?
Unwanted wedding guests
You might want them there, your husband- to- be (h2b) might not. Your h2b might want them there, but you might not. Deciding who to invite to your wedding can lead to arguments, but relax! You’ll be so busy on your wedding day, you won’t have time to have an awkward run-in with your h2b’s sister’s boyfriend’s mum. And what about exes? So relax
Bridesmaids complaining about dresses
When you want your day to be how you visioned it, you don’t want your bridesmaids complaining about the dress that matches the colour scheme or complements your wedding dress. You don’t want them to be uncomfortable in what you’re wearing, but you don’t want them taking complete control. We’ve got a great dress choice that will flatter all figures.
Negative comments about bride’s choices
People not agreeing or getting along with your choices in general is a difficult one, but don’t worry yourself too much about it. They will understand it’s your day, and that’s how YOU want it.
Mother-in-law /Mother taking control
Sometimes mothers and mother-in-laws want to take over, but it’s slightly more of an awkward one telling your h2b’s mother to back off a bit. But stay strong and stern, and make sure they don’t get too carried away.
Everyone wanting to post photos of what they’re up to on Facebook can be a bit of a pain to you brides. Whether you wanted to wait for your professional photos to be uploaded, or you don’t like the way you look, or your wedding looks, in the photo your cousin took, it is always a good option to let your guests know your preferences!
Pressure to look great
Your wedding day is a day when eyes are all on you and obviously, you want to look your best. Why not get your bridesmaids to keep makeup on hand for any time you need a top-up of lippy to keep you looking fresh till the end of the night!
Appearance in the photographs
When spending a significant chunk of your budget on a photographer on your big day, you are bound to worry about how you are going to look in the photos. But remember, they will be professional and know everything, from the best way to capture your dress to your best side.
Choosing a wedding menu is difficult because you want everyone to like your food, and avoid any complaints. At the end of the day, there is bound to be something in the midst of a three-course meal that will suit every guest.
The unpredictable British weather is one of the most common worries for brides. A sunny wedding day is beautiful, but rain isn’t all bad.
Comparison and competition
The study revealed that there was definitely a competitive streak within brides, with 40% of the 1,000 newly married women admitting to being ‘fiercely competitive’ when it came to planning their wedding. The green-eyed monster makes women anxious about how their wedding compares to others, but your wedding day should reflect you and your personality and not be seen as a one-up on a friend who got married last month!
