Pack your food to go.
Or better yet, make it a point to get your food packed for you. Believe it or not, you will not get to have the time to get the sustenance you need. You really can’t afford to starve yourself somewhere during the process and this is what you need to prepare for as much as you possibly can at the end of the day. You don’t have to cook your food yourself or prepare it yourself, either. You are probably going to be too busy to go through with it during the wedding day anyway.
Talk to your caterer about it. Have him whip something up for you so that you don’t have anything to worry about and so that you can just go ahead and get your food to go while you are at it. You want to be fairly full enough so that you have enough energy to go through the entire wedding day without fainting or without feeling light headed while you are at it. At the same time, you might also want to make sure that you don’t overeat. You want to have enough energy and fill up enough, but not too much wherein you have to end up not fitting into your wedding dress at all. That will put to waste the months and months that you have been slaving over the preparations of the wedding dress.
Smile to everyone.
It might seem exhausting trying to be the gracious host all the time. We are talking about lots and lots of hugging and kissing and saying thank you to the people who took their time to be there for you during the day of the wedding but this is something that you will have to go through with when it all comes down to it. Try to focus more on the fact that you are enjoying the most important day of your life and that you are actually surrounded by friends and family who mean the most to you and who at the same time, value you in every sense of the word. Whenever you feel as if you are getting tired of smiling to people and of hugging and kissing them, you should try to take a break every now and then. Step out of the reception or take a break at the back of the kitchen or do something fairly similar to that. Don’t forget to smile to your wedding photographers Los Angeles as well.
Keep it classy and poised.
Don’t consume too much alcohol even if the merriments are something that you would want to get into full force. Being inebriated during the day of the wedding will dull your senses and will make you come off as a little too boisterous and a little too rowdy. A bride must stay poised and classic all the time, even if things can get a little too crazy. Your professional wedding photographers Los Angeles will want to take photos of you at your best.
Speeches don’t have to be terrible.
You can prepare them, write them ahead of time and rehearse them until you perfect them. This is particularly true when it comes to your wedding vows. Don’t just wing it and don’t just play it by ear. If you have a fear of speeches, they don’t always have to be terrible.
