9 Tips to Have a Perfect Wedding

9 Tips to Have a Perfect Wedding

Probably, many of you are making the final preparations for your wedding or maybe you may still have a little more time to continue organizing.

It’s your wedding! It is good to be advised by your family and friends but never forget that it’s your wedding and not theirs. Do what you really wish for the celebration without allowing the people influence on you. Usually, this is going to be just a once in a lifetime experience, so why not to do it as you have always dreamed?

To help you in this task, I’ll give you some simple tips that will help you to achieve the wedding of your dreams.

1. Customize

If you have already been in a wedding as a guest you may have noticed when the bride and groom have made an effort to prepare it for their personal style and when they don’t.


Every one of the aspects to be considered at a wedding (music, food, decoration, details, etc) should be chosen depending on the tastes and personality of the couple. Be different and be unique so that your wedding event is remembered for a long time.

2. Good food

Food is probably what will be remembered by your guests for a long time. So carefully choose the dishes to create a delicious menu.

Make sure you know what your guests would like to eat, what their preferences are – vegetarian or non vegetarian – and arrange the dishes accordingly.

3. Control the timing

At a wedding, like in any other event, it’s important to manage the time for the celebration to make it as comfortable as possible.


Religious ceremonies are more difficult to control (although you can choose a longer or shorter mass) but if it is a civil marriage, do not hesitate to make it as short as possible!

4. Good choice of music

The songs chosen by you, or with the Dj’s help, are the key to amuse the people at the party. Choose music which fits the occasion and good enough to make the guests dance, laugh and enjoy.

5. The best company

Any celebration is important if the people you care the most are there. Leave behind commitments and surround yourself with people you love, especially friends. It’s youngest people, usually friends of the couple’s wedding, who are going to enliven and animate the party.

So make sure you invite plenty of young guns to energize your party and create more fun for the crowd.


6. Traditions that should disappear

Every wedding follows some traditions. Maybe your family wants you to do some rituals or your religion insists you have to perform some. Whatever they are, if they are not compulsory, make sure to do away with them.

Focus more on the excitement and fun.

7. Dressing the Bride and Groom

To customize the wedding itself is as important as the style chosen by the couple. Forget the impossible and uncomfortable looks. Choose a dress that you really feel identify with. That will make you feel beautiful, instead of artificial and overdressed.

Do not wear a large skirt if you are going to move or dance. With the uncomfortable dress, you are not going to enjoy your wedding party.


8. Natural photos

The best memory you’ll have will be your wedding photographs and this is a task which should be left to a professional wedding photographer.

Hire a good photographer and give natural poses. Strictly ask the photographer not to apply any photoshop or other tricks. Make them look natural and raw.

Above are some tips to make your wedding a memorable event. Always plan ahead and budget for your wedding properly. Remain within your expense limits and make simple changes to make your wedding a really great event to be remembered for a long time.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.


3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.


Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:


Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.


8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
