5 Things Never to Do On Your Wedding Day
You’ve made it this far. You bought the wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses, got the ring, and wrote your vows. Now it’s time to enjoy the most romantic day of your life. If you want to have a truly relaxing day, though, steer clear of these five wedding day destroyers.
Pick a Fight
Sure, maybe your mom was late or your fiancée was rude. Do you really want to remember your wedding as a day of fighting, or walk down the aisle filled with anxiety? Cultivate love and forgiveness on this most special of days, even if every one is driving you crazy.
Try a New Medication
It doesn’t matter why you’re doing it. Medications often carry side effects, and the last thing you want to do is fall asleep, vomit, or faint at the altar or experience the worst of all side effect of getting drunk in front of your family and friends.
Embark on a New Beauty Ritual
That mask you got on an impulse buy or the eye treatment your maid of honor got you for your wedding might seem like a good idea—until your face is covered with red welts, that is. Steer clear of any new beauty treatments in the days leading up to your nuptials, or you may find yourself scrambling to conceal the damage.
Eat Brightly Coloured Foods while wearing your Wedding Dress
You don’t need to starve yourself on your wedding day, but you should load up on food before you step into your dress. If you must eat as you await your walk down the aisle, try draping yourself in a robe or sheet, since the last thing you want to do is try to get ketchup out of your wedding gown, a good idea would be to avoid drinking red wine just to be safe don’t put it on the drinks list.
Don’t be late for your own wedding! It’s stressful, especially to the groom who is waiting on you, and could cost you more money at your wedding venue. Plan ahead, and add a significant time cushion so that, if anything goes awry, you’re still cool, calm, and collected.
