I was so unsure about how our wedding morning would go.
The months leading up to it were ROUGH. With covid, moving, job changes and drama out the wazoo, I was struggling to stay present with myself and others. I was so concerned I wouldn’t be present on our wedding day and would miss the whole thing.
BUT! Praise the Lord for answered prayer.
I specifically asked God to help me stay at peace, and fully present on our wedding day.
As you craft your own special day, here are 5 tips to help you create a more peaceful morning:
✨Give yourself more time than you need | Wake up earlier than you plan to your wedding morning, get to the venue the second they’ll let you in, and encourage your crew to pack up as they go!
✨Music makes a difference | set the tone with a little warmth; try soft jazz, indie folk, alternative, r&b or just start off with a bangin’ club mix!
✨Start with no screens | the world has lots to say, why form your big day off headlines & comparison? Save screens for after your I do’s. Have your MOH handle urgent texts/calls.
✨Prioritize spiritual health | prayer, meditation, journaling, etc! I did some yoga with my ladies (highly recommended!!) and afterwards I remember sitting under a large tree writing our vows, reading scripture and meditating on God’s goodness. It laid the groundwork for the day, and exemplified how I wanted to enter into marriage.
✨Choose your people wisely | I mean it. From vendors, to bridal party, your people make a big difference as to how the day will be. That bridal suite is sacred ground—fill it with people who will pour love into you and your marriage!
