Summer is almost here and that means the wedding season is heating up. If you're a summer bride, you may be busy taking care of last minute details, going over your wedding checklist, or starting to get anxious about the big day. Whatever you find yourself doing or feeling, relax, it's likely normal. Your wedding day is going to be one of the most memorable days in your life. That said, make sure you treat it as such. Often times, we get so caught up in the details, we forget to enjoy the moment. If you have a wedding planner, great. He or she should be the one taking care of all the details or any unexpected situations. If you don't have an event planner, ask a trusted friend or relative to act as your point person during the wedding. Explain that you want to be able to enjoy your wedding day and not have to deal with any hiccups along the way. In most cases, they would be honored that you trust them and glad to help you out. Choosing a relative may not be as good an option as a friend because relatives, especially close ones, want to share in the festivities of the day too. They may not want the responsibility of managing details. Use your judgment to pick someone you trust will be able to carry out this role and be happy to do so. Venue managers or coordinators are also very helpful. They want you to have a positive experience; so enlist their help where appropriate.
The last thing you want to do on your wedding day is worry about a missing centerpiece, the extra guests that showed up, or anything else unexpected. If you happen to notice something awry, do tell your wedding planner, point person, or some other individual, who can take care of it. Your job is to be the bride, enjoy your special day, and cherish the beautiful memories you and your groom create. Leave the details to someone else.
