The Most Common Wedding Fears And How To Deal With Them

Most Common Wedding Fears

Pre-wedding fear is something that all couples have to deal with while preparing for the biggest and most important day of your life. Read on to find out how you can put some of the most common wedding fears to rest.

Wedding angst is real and out of control at times. A study showed that 96% of newly engaged couples freak out when thinking about their wedding day and all the details and involvements that come part of wedding planning. There is so much to plan for and a million things that can go wrong. This can make you lose sleep, stress both financially and mentally but make sure you won’t take the fun out of what is supposed to be the most magical day of your lives. Below is a list of the top 5 things that couples worry about and how you can deal with them.

1. Rain on Your Wedding Day

It is widely believed that rain on your wedding day it’s known to be considered as good luck but it can also ruin the day. This is why a lot of couples worry about what the weather will be like and will constantly check their forecasts. There’s little that can be done to control the weather, but you can be prepared for any eventuality. Have a back-up plan for rain, wind, cold temperatures, and whatever else that Mother Nature brings your way.

2. No Guests on the Day

After spending a lot of resources to make sure that the wedding goes off without a hitch, a common wedding fear is that no one will show up now that’s every couple’s worse nightmare. You must remember that your wedding guest list has your close friends and family that will do anything to support you. To be extra sure, send your save-the-dates early and call up those that delay to RSVP to make sure that they will attend.

3. A Bad Hair Day

All eyes are on the bride on the wedding day. This puts pressure on brides to look picture perfect the whole day. A lot of brides fear is that they will have a bad hair day or their make-up will be anything less than flawless. To make sure that this does not happen, schedule a bridal trial run of your hair and make up a few weeks before your big day. Feel free to make any changes in advance so that you have no stress on the day.

4. Stuttering During the Vows

Speaking in front of a crowd is not everyone’s cup of tea. Many people find it intimidating. To ease the fear of public speaking, practice reciting your vows beforehand. You can get help from your close friends and family. Recite in front of them until your vows flow easily. Remember that even if you end up making a mistake on the day, it will not be the end of the world. Laugh it off and continue saying your vows.
