Wedding Season is rapidly approaching and if you are like me, you have at least two weddings to get ready for. This time is obviously stressful for the bride, but it can be just as stressful for the serial wedding goers. I compiled a list that should help ease and anxiety that may be creeping up.
1. Plan ahead: As soon as you get a wedding invite, start to figure out your travel arrangements. If the wedding is out of town and you have to fly, set an alert on your favorite travel sites. The more time you give yourself, the more opportunities you will have to purchase a reasonable plane ticket. Also check prices on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, plane tickets tend to go down on those days.
2. Sales aren’t just for shoes and clothes: Department Stores always have sales on holidays and typically household items are included. Before you hit the shoe department for a little retail therapy, print out the couple’s registry and head to the home goods section. That waffle maker or pot and pan set the bride has to have may be on sale and you can get their perfect gift at a discount.
3. It takes more than a week to lose weight: Everyone wants to look great at a wedding. You know the groom has an attractive single groomsman that you are hoping to get paired up with down the soul train line lol. Ladies, unfortunately cutting out the cookies, and going hard in the gym a week before the wedding isn’t going to cut it. Hit the gym NOW! It is the perfect time to start a new healthy lifestyle so you can look super sexy in your summer time attire.
4. Relax: This wedding experience will only happen once…ENJOY IT! Take a lot of pictures, dance until your feet hurt, and bask in the ambiance of love. The bride and groom invited you because they value your relationship with them. Their wedding day will be a day that they will never forget, so don’t stress have fun with them!
