There are few things in this world as beautiful and inspiring as the bonds of matrimony. The following tips are proven to help control the beast within, and leave the desired memories of your wedding day.
Two individuals coming together in heart, mind, and purpose, often causes supporters and peers to reflect on the important matters of life, and set goals to improve their own lives. Marriage is an event that transforms two, into one, and is often as spectacular as a caterpillar transforming into a majestic butterfly.
However, among the beauty and glamour of this beautiful event, lies a deep and dark being, that if given allowance, can destroy the event in its entirety. Some have used words such as psychotic, insane, scary, and even horrifying to describe this being, or what is often referred to, as the infamous Bridezilla.
Being accompanied by a tornado of attitudes, mood swings, selfish rages, controlling behaviors, and undetected outbursts, Bridezillas can leave lasting, and often terrible scars. This being is found within all brides, but with proper actions, and help from friends and loved ones, this issue can be dramatically mitigated.
The following tips are proven to help control this beast within, and leave the desired memories of such glorious ceremonies.
Tip #1: All the small things
Remember that the major take away for you and your guests, are the feelings of inspiration and love. Your peers and loved ones won?t remember that your fianc??s tie didn’t exactly match your color scheme, or that your weird uncle wore sandals with his tuxedo. It is extremely important to keep perspective, and know that the wedding is just one day in your life, and that sweating the small things is not worth it.
Tip #2: Control Freak
There will be countless things that will be entirely out of your control. Know and understand this. Accepting that you cannot control everything is an extremely beneficial state of mind, and will in turn allow you to roll with the punches when something unexpected comes along. ?Freaking out? is usually more memorable than a small mishap.
Tip #3: Minions
With friends, family, and loved ones at hand, understand that delegating responsibility is absolutely and completely ok! It is your big day, and your supporters want it to run smoothly just as badly as you do. Delegating responsibilities will not only ease your stress, but give confidence and feelings of importance to those you ask. As always, they may act as minions doing as you say, but they are your loved ones and will be around much longer than the wedding day, so treat them with respect.
Tip #4: Boundaries
When planning for the wedding, it is very important to set boundaries, or allotted times during the day when you can and cannot plan. An example of a time allotment, would be planning from 10 am to 1 pm, taking a break from 1 to 3 pm, and continuing your planning from 3 to 9 pm. Sticking to your time allotments will help you and your assistants take a break from the planning, and let you think on the things you’ve gone over.
Tip #5: Spectrum
Focus on the big picture. What is it you want people to come away with? What is it that you want to remember most about your wedding day? Take a step back and go over tips 1-4, and make it a point to reach for the main goal. Like previously stated, your wedding is just one day, but the memories will last forever.
If you or someone you know has fallen victim to, or is suffering from this destructive disorder, please share these tips. If we all stick together, and work towards a common goal, we can prevent the spread of this terrible disease, and love and happiness will triumph over all!
