Austin Wedding Venue
all eyes are on you and your fiancé. That can make even the most calm bride anxious, especially if you don’t like the lime light. We’ve asked the experts and compiled a list of five tips for stopping stage fright on your wedding day.
Not everyone is great at speaking in front of people. If you’re prone to stumbling over your words when you’re front and center going with traditional vows and repeating after your officiant can keep you calmer.
Shorten your first dance
Not everyone is born to dance. If you have two left feet consider taking dance lessons together before the big day, or simply sway back-and-forth. You can also ask your DJ to make your first dance song shorter as well as keep your eyes on your new dance partner for life.
Surround yourself with support
There’s a reason you have a bridal party. It’s these people that you can lean on for support when you feel overwhelmed throughout the day. Feeling loved and supported goes a long way in easing nerves.
A simple “thank you” is enough in most cases. Or if you do want to have a toast have your best man and MOH do the honors for you.
Wear a good luck charm
A good luck charm can provide that little extra courage you need throughout the day. Maybe it’s your grandpa’s lucky coin or your mother’s necklace. Whatever it is, keep it close as a reminder that you’re okay.
