Approximately two million Americans get married every year. This is lower than the 25 million weddings that happen annually years ago. Still, it’s a decent chunk of the overall American population. On average, Americans spend $20,000 to $33,000 on their wedding. That’s a lot of their hard-earned cash spent on an event that almost only happens once in a lifetime.
This is why many change their lifestyle months before their wedding. They want to look fit and desirable in the pictures. They want to look representable to their family and extended family. Lastly, they want to look the best they can be when the big day comes. It all makes sense considering that weddings barely happen anymore nowadays. It’s a rare occasion, and everyone should prepare for it. Here are some ways you can do that.
Get the Right Clothes
Getting the right clothes is going to be your first step into preparing for your wedding day. Some couples look for these kinds of clothes way before they even plan their weddings. It’s important that you look into what clothes you want to wear for your wedding day because they will be in your memories for years to come.
There are many places you can get your wedding clothes. If you want to look plain and simple and wear something that isn’t too expensive, then you can go visit department stores for formal wear. However, this is primarily applicable to men. For women, you might have to visit bridal shops for your wedding dress. You can either rent these dresses, buy one, or even ask them to make one for you. But know that it won’t come cheap. So it’s wiser to just rent one if you’re on a budget.
When choosing the right clothes, make sure that they will fit the theme of your wedding. It’ll be awkward to see a bride standing out just because she wore the wrong color of the dress for the theme of her own wedding. What you can also do is set the theme depending on what kind of clothes you choose. This will make it so much easier for the bride and groom to prepare for their wedding. Remember that you are the main star of the show and not the wedding itself.
Exercising is part of everyone’s lifestyle nowadays, and that’s generally a good thing. But if you want to fit inside that tight dress or suit you might have gotten from the shop on your wedding day, you’re going to need to lose or maintain weight. Know that there is a possibility that you might not fit on your desired outfit come your wedding day if you don’t stay fit. Don’t resort to dieting either. It won’t affect you as much as exercise would.
Ultimately, it’s better that you exercise as much as you can months before your wedding day. It will keep you calm and collected if you’re feeling a bit anxious about the big day. It will also keep your hormones in check just in case you’re overflowing with them from all the excitement.
Additionally, it’s better that you exercise than diet because dieting takes some time before it becomes effective. It’s better that you eat as much as you can while burning it off when you can. This makes sure that you won’t get too frustrated with such a lifestyle and that you won’t stop halfway through.
Attend Meditation Lessons
A wedding is a big day for everyone. Normally, you’ll feel anxious. It’s also normal that you don’t know what you are feeling right now. It can be a confusing moment for anyone, and it can affect how you will be when the time comes. So it’s time for you to get yourself together by attending some meditation lessons.
If you haven’t tried meditation before, you’re missing out on many things in your life. It is one of the best mindfulness exercises that makes you aware of what you are feeling. Acknowledging what you feel is one stop to eliminating all the anxiety you might feel for your wedding day. It will also help if you express such feelings through the peace you feel while meditating. Once you’ve done meditation once or twice, it will surely become a part of your lifestyle today. Ensure that you keep doing it until the day of your wedding arrives so that you don’t have to be anxious anymore.
Here are some simple ways that you can prepare yourself for your wedding day. If you have already done these things or it’s already part of your current lifestyle, make sure to level it up a bit. For example, if you’re attending meditation lessons before, start attending them thrice a week. Following this guide will make sure that you can get the best out of your wedding day.
