As you’re preparing for your wedding day, it’s very easy to get overwhelmed by all of the details and loose ends that need to be in order before the big day! More often than not we find that brides (and grooms) usually have forgotten at least one thing come wedding day, and this is an instantaneous recipe for unnecessary stress! We forgot plenty of things on our own wedding day and at one point I had to drive 10 minutes into town just to grab the last few things we needed. And no one has time for that on a wedding day. If you’ve been to weddings before, you know they are a blur and every moment is a precious commodity…that’s why we advise designating a “helper”!
Asking someone you trust to be that person and making sure they can be there for the whole wedding day can take virtually ALL the stress off you as the bride! Your designated helper should be someone responsible, reliable and AVAILABLE. Someone who can run to the store last-minute, get you a snack or a glass of water when you need it, and help out with any unexpected glitches in your day. Think about it…NO wedding goes entirely as planned, and the less YOU have to stress about that, the better! By anticipating that it may not go exactly as planned, and setting up a plan to take care of what goes wrong, you’re giving yourself the sweet gift of “peace of mind”…..which is SO VALUABLE on your wedding day!! It’s your day. You should be focused on the fact that you’re getting married to your best friend!
Even if you’re working with a planner or a coordinator, their job isn’t to pick up the slack, take care of last-minute hiccups, run to CVS for body tape, go back to the hotel to grab the veil you left behind…having a helper for this is a lifesaver. And don’t forget to get a portrait with your helper!! Honor her for her important role in your wedding day!
