Contrary to popular belief that a to-be-bride has only to look good, pose for pictures and have fun, the entire process and prep encompassing an Indian marriage is sure to leave any bride feeling anything between anxious, overwhelmed and tired! Hence we decided to take matters into our own hands and weave this piece as a sweet reminder of why you’d chosen to walk this path in the first place and what are the essential things you can do to simplify this entire process.
We’ve listed five important things for you to do or actively remember in your entire journey. So sit back and get started below:
1. Keep Yourself Hydrated
Amidst all the frenzy and chaos surrounding you in the run-up to your big day it may appear silly to stop and sip water but that is precisely the key to keep you on your feet without feeling drained or too irritated. A glowing skin is an added advantage 🙂 Make mental notes, set reminders or simply make drinking plenty of water as part of your lifestyle and feel the difference!

2. Get a Foot Massage
There’s nothing like getting a good foot massage at the end of your super hectic pre-wedding day. Not only does it soothe your feet but also helps in relieving overall stress and provides a sense of much-needed comfort and calm. If you’ve not considered hiring a masseuse, you might want to consider now.

3. Some Fun and Some Rest too

You don’t want to be feeling utterly exhausted and worn out by the end of this process, afterall you’ll be making some lasting memories in this course. So sail through it all seamlessly feeling fresh and pleasant. All you got to do is to simply remember to sit back and relax between all the grooving and greeting!

4. Be People-oriented, not Technology
While the urge and need to document moments is understandable, remember the best part about your wedding memories can not only be about recording memories! So be open to pictures, videos, posts in between while you’re really there spending time with your loved and longed ones. Smile, laugh, cheer and be comfortable otherwise and not only for the shutterbugs.

5. The Key is to ‘Be in the Moment’
While feeling overwhelmed, running through last-minute details and final checks, thinking and catering to a number of thoughts and people is bound to happen, it is important to remember that everything will take its course, process and fall in place and no amount of panic is going to prepare you more or better. So why not simply sit back and live the moment fully with your tribe?! All the efforts are centered around giving ‘you’ a good time, so it makes perfect sense for you to make the most of it.
