This is my favourite step but quite possibly the hardest. If you’re anything like me, your impatient- patience is a learnt skill. But when I’m asked what is your number one tip for brides on their big day, this is always it, no matter what- choose joy.
This day won’t come again- not in this setting, with these exact people and in this season of your life. Life is made of moments, dates and relationships, choosing joy on your wedding day is the best way of imprinting all these things forever in your memory.
Have a friend or family member whose job it is to remind you to be present. On my big day one of my bridesmaids took me aside, told me how beautiful I looked, and most importantly they took me by the hand at a number of key moments and reminded me to breathe!
