My best advice: don’t view everything as being monumental just because it’s your wedding day.  My sister had it embedded in her mind that everything down to her morning coffee had to be an epic experience simply because she was getting married that day, and she was 10x more stressed than I was on my big day. Sure, enjoy the hours leading up to your nuptials, but don’t freak if your coffee isn’t perfect, you know? πŸ˜‰

Also, make sure to eat before the wedding. I didn’t and ended up feeling super shaky at the reception because I hadn’t eaten in hours. You’re going to be busy visiting and will quickly realize that you aren’t going to get a huge meal in like some of your guests will. No one wants to see you faint on the dance floor! πŸ™‚

Most importantly, take it all in and have a wonderful time. Congratulations in advance!

Try to stay calm, and stay hydrated!  It seems to be wicked hot everywhere this week!

I second the note to have a glass of wine (or two) beforehand.  I hope you have a wonderfully fun day! 

P.S….the stress is almost over!  πŸ™‚

It also helps to just STOP talking about it sometimes. By the time the rehearsal dinner started, a few relatives asked me “How did the rehearsal go?” and I realized that I just plain didn’t want to talk about it anymore. So I told them that (probably not in as nice a way as I could have, but hey, I was stressed!) and actually managed to totally enjoy myself that night! So once all the pieces are in place, don’t talk about it anymore. Just let it happen.  Same as when I was making the aisle decorations on like Wednesday before the wedding. My mom was asking me what I intended to do and how it was going to look and all that, and finally I just told her to be quiet. “I’m just doing what I want to do, and they will look fine. I’m not going to explain it. I don’t want to talk about this crap ANY MORE.”

It was such a relief to just work in silence!
