Are you having nightmares about your big day? Getting the sweats?
Good, er... ish... news. The above symptoms are common in brides to be (& grooms!). While wedding planning is certainly an exciting time, it can also be anxiety-ridden. We'll discuss a few of the most common wedding day fears and how you can get over them.
Wedding Fear #1 : Your Dress Won't Fit
You found the dress of your dreams and you can't wait to wear it on the big day... this is precisely the reason why you are so nervous about it not fitting,
Wedding Fear Mantra: I am going to be getting plenty of fittings. My dress is going to be tailored to my body. I am going to look and feel beautiful.
Wedding Fear #2 : It's Going to Rain
Yes, it might. Does that change the fact that you're going to be marrying the man or woman of your dreams? Does it change the fact that you'll be surrounded by family and friends? Will it stop you from getting gorgeous photographs? Will your guests have less fun? No.
Wedding Fear Mantra: The weather isn't going to change the meaning of my day or how much fun everyone has, but my attitude will. I will make the best of whatever is thrown my way.
Wedding Fear #3 : Tripping Down the Aisle
The walk down the aisle is slow and you should have the opportunity to practice at your rehearsal. If you are planning to wear heels, make sure to break them in first a few weeks before the wedding so that they are more comfortable the day-of.
Wedding Fear Mantra: I will determine my own pace down the aisle. I will walk with confidence. There will not be a dry eye in the house.
If you've been to a wedding lately, it's possible that you've already spotted one of the latest wedding trends, mercury glass, and it doesn't seem likely that this trend is going anywhere anytime soon.
This beautiful glass comes in a variety of tones such as silver and copper, and you'll see it on items such as mirrors, votives and vases.
How can you tie mercury glass into your wedding theme?
A mercury vase can hold little collections of baby's breath or wildflowers. Place your vase on slab of wood and surround it with tea light candles for a beautiful glow that will reflect off of the mercury glass surfaces. The mercury glass aesthetically pairs well with a dark wood.
Mercury votives can add an elegant touch to your centerpieces and on your tables. You can also find mercury glass pillar candle holders which can add dramatic height to your tablescape and still incorporate the trend subtly.
It is easy to incorporate mercury glass into your wedding theme, even if you're planning on using a lot of natural greenery for your decor. Add a chic twist to your terrariums and succulent centerpieces by using a mercury glass planter. It's an easy way to add some shine.
Like the vases pictured above? They are only $15.00 for a set of three right now, and can be purchased here.
