From your parents arriving an hour late to the beautiful ceremony you planned at your Austin wedding venue, to your cake leaning over from all of the Texas summer heat, wedding days are stressful! Read on for 5 surefire ways to reduce wedding day stress to make you prepared for anything life throws at you.
Pamper yourself the night before your wedding
First, reserve a little R&R for the night before your wedding! Spend quality time with your bridesmaids, slip into comfy clothes, and put on a face mask. Also, take a warm bath before bed and throw in a bath bomb for an extra wedding day stress reliever. Latika bath bombs are made right here in Austin and are wonderful for pre-wedding pampering!
Get your beauty rest
When you don’t give yourself the sleep you need, you feel foggy, are forgetful, and have higher chances of getting sick. Forget being able to handle stressful situations! Make sure you get plenty of sleep the night before your wedding so you can start off on the right foot.
Reduce wedding day stress and shorten your commute
Do you want to plan your wedding day to a T? Keep in mind, it takes anywhere from 35 minutes to 2 hours to get across Austin. Therefore, beat the stress and shorten the commute to your ceremony that way traffic won’t be an issue. Even better, find a venue that provides lodging. At The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge, we have two spaces for accommodation. The Lodge and The Cabin each hold up to 14 guests, totaling 28 of your closest family and friends. Avoid wedding day stress and get ready first thing in the morning without having to fight traffic.
Put on a great playlist
It’s been proven that music can affect your mood. Music with a slower tempo helps you relax, whereas more upbeat music helps you stay optimistic. Creating a playlist before your wedding day is a great idea to get you in a happy mood! Include songs your bridesmaids love too, so you all can do some pre-wedding happy singing and dancing!
Don’t do it alone
Lastly, a common wedding day stress is due to things not going according to plan. Eliminate the stress and hire a day-of-event coordinator to help your day run as smoothly as possible. At The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge, we have our own in-house event coordinator to help with anything you need on your wedding day!
