It’s that time of the year again! Time to make resolutions and bring some positive changes in your life that can make you a better person, overall. Well, we all are different and so is our definition of being a perfect individual. But, no one can deny the fact that the perception of every individual towards him or others starts from his own self. And with each day, we foster for being something that makes us happy from inside, and likewise beautiful from outside. And this coveted date, 31st of December, would be nothing less than a savior and mentor to make a fresh start and drain out every negativity!
While most of us would be busy in NYE celebrations in some funky dresses and wait for the clock to strike 12, and then, the next day would be as normal as any other day. Of course, with some positivity in the surroundings to make those changes. But this day and the year ahead is not going to be the same for some. To all the wild guesses, we are talking about those who are going to be a bride this year. Whohoo! A big cheers to all the gorgeous ladies who have found the love of their life and finally decided to settle down in life with a new title to their relationship. So girls, bang it on as it is your day and you have to look and feel awesome about yourself in every way. And a fresh year knocking at your door brings you so many inspirations for your upcoming wedding to be stressful and more fun! Indeed, walking down the aisle will make this year the best yet, but before you start with your wedding planning, it's important to make a few vows to yourself like you would any other year—but this time, for your newly married life.
As the saying goes, a happy bride is a beautiful bride! So, the first and foremost thing for you is to let go of everything and think only about the good things coming your way. And start following this game-changer technique from the onset of this new year so that your wedding in the coming year would be full of happiness. Well we cannot deny that wedding preps can be stressful from picking a wedding date and then the best-fit designer wedding dress to having the decor as you have perceived in your visions, and finally executing the day with the same charm and enthusiasm you had, when you said yes to him!
As they say, things only affect you if you allow them to. This is where the new year wedding resolutions for brides-to-be step in! In order to achieve nirvana while planning and prepping for your wedding, there are a few things that you can decide upon doing. And believe us, you’d feel relaxed after opting for some mind-blowing resolutions for yourself.
Here is a sorted list of some new year resolutions that you can take for your upcoming wedding with no stress or anxiety involved and be confident that everything will go as per the plan. Let’s read them in detail-
No matter how much makeup you put on, a wrinkle on your face due to any worry will be a disaster to you. As we all know, mental and physical health are equally important, and if you are the bride, there is no need to take extra pressure on yourself, because you already have so much in line- from being fit nicely into your pre-owned designer wedding dress (specially picked from a popular wedding gown designer), to checking if your hairdo and veil are going fine altogether, and in between, managing the butterflies in your belly to not burst out. If you feel good, you look good. So, make a resolution to stay happy and positive and the same will reflect on your face and body. Eat right, exercise, and think just about your love and nothing else. And you won’t regret this effort!
Happiness does not need cost. So be happy in any case, no matter what! Yes, you want your big day to be perfect, but there is no point in having a perfect day if you can't fully enjoy it because you're too busy worrying about people around? Right from the beginning of planning to the execution, things can get overwhelming. Promise yourself to maintain your calm and not take a step back. Having said that, it's easy to get caught up in the chaos, but a quick way to resolve it is to take a timeout. Schedule a romantic weekend getaway with your guy or grab the girls for a spa day. Need some time for yourself? Switch off the phone and do something you love, whether it's watching your favorite movie or sitting down with a good book- anything to reign in your control-freak tendencies.
You have been waiting for this day all your life and finally, it is at the doorstep. Why not have it just the way you have always dreamt of! Make a resolution to make all your dreams come alive while spending wisely on your wedding. After all, every penny matters. Take a look at your wedding wish list and start cutting things you could probably do without. If you're convinced with everything on your list for that dream wedding, try looking for cost-effective alternatives. Choose seasonal flowers for your bouquets. Make your own wedding favors. Second-hand designer wedding dresses or used bridesmaid dresses are also in trend to support a sustainable eco-friendly wedding!
No matter how hard you try, there is no end to perfection. And it is your wedding, you cannot put a pause to your fairytale ideas. And we understand that it is obvious as you are going to wear that gown for the first time, that first look with your partner will be something you haven’t felt before and that walk down the aisle with your parents by your side with welled up eyes, you are going to experience all of this for the very first time. So feel every bit of your precious moments instead of pushing yourself hard to get everything on the table. You cannot make everyone happy, so stop worrying about putting the favorite wine of your first cousin on the table or offering your uncle his favorite cupcake! C’mon. It’s your once-in-a-lifetime occasion. So, you gotta do what you always wanted to! Banish the thought of sacrificing to make everyone happy. Let go of the expectations and pressures of others and do what you want to do.
What better way to celebrate your love than to share it with everyone else? It doesn't take much of a penny to make a difference in the world and thankfully, there are so many ways you can do it. If you are a bride who thinks of the environment first, hire a caterer who uses produce from local farmers or print your invitations on recycled paper. If the charity makes you happy, give wedding favors that benefit your favorite organization. Don't want to be wasteful? Donate your flowers to a hospital. With a little thought, your special day will have a lasting impact on the people around you. Selling your wedding gown is also an interesting way to share your love with someone, who cannot afford to buy a dress that you fortunately can!
Your wedding is primarily about two of you, and then about those who have been invited to the celebration. So, think about your budget, style, and preferences instead of trying to please anyone. It is your day and no one is going to judge you. So if you cannot afford an expensive shimmering wedding gown because it goes over your budget, you should think about other options without thinking bad about it. There are a lot of other good options available in which you’ll look equally adorable. Stay content with what you have or what you’re planning to have. In the end, your wedding should be a more personalized celebration rather than the one to make a statement.
A wedding can be a single-day event but its planning takes months to process and finally execute. And if any of the strings gets disoriented, the entire functioning may get disrupted. So, focus on every little detail that you added to your to-do list that makes your day complete, but first things first. Substantial things such as the wedding venue, vendors, and professionals are bound to be heavily booked. If you delay your bookings, you might not get the one as per your choice. An easy way to get out of these intricacies is to prioritize your requirements for that perfect wedding of your dreams. Do not indulge in procrastinating, take decisions faster, and do booking prior. And the best part! You can also save a lot of money.
Your wedding is an occasion to celebrate the union of you and your partner for a lifetime. And don't forget that this is the main purpose of your wedding. Do not let it get overpowered by the stress that comes along with the budget, society, unnecessary show-off, and all the drama. Your wedding day celebrates your love, and you need nothing else to be happy. As you start planning the minor details from the scratch, remember to communicate with your partner regularly. And that love is all you need to reach the aisle with a pretty smile, which will surely only increase day by day.
We know that you are a superwoman, but do not try to push yourself hard. After all, it is the day of love you are planning for, not an examination that you are worried about getting fewer marks and being compared with fellow members. It is your style that defines you, try to keep it that way only. If you are out of limits, do not be afraid to ask for help. When it comes to planning your own wedding, sometimes you’ve got to hand stuff over which is perfectly fine. Delegate wedding planning tasks to your helpful hubby-to-be, and use your bridesmaids’ skills to their full potential. After all, what are bridesmaids for? They should also feel involved in this special day with the small elements they plan for your wedding.
No matter how many artificial things you order for a materialistic look, personalized things have their own charm, and are cost-effective too! If you want to save yourself some dosh – DIY it! It can be a fun activity when you get your friends and family involved as well and feel welcomed in the preps for the decor. It is a sheer satisfaction knowing that the bunting hanging across your venue on your wedding day was made by your younger sister. Add a personal touch in a small way and you’d love to remember all these precious things later.
While you get so engrossed in your wedding planning, one thing that you haven’t realized is that your best time before the wedding is still left and you are yet to embrace it! We are talking about the sweet engagement session of you and your darling, that leads you to think about getting married to each other. Due to all the chaos running across with wedding planning, you forget to even enjoy this special time of being engaged. Make a resolution to take in this memorable time and to make the most of it. As you tie the knot and are officially termed as spouses, you’ll definitely look back on these weeks and months and wish you could have it back!
For the brides-to-be, these wedding resolutions are the need of the hour to get great peace of mind throughout. While you eventually love to spend the most exciting time before your wedding, following the above rules certainly helps in cutting out the stress and embracing the anticipation of good times!
