Tips for Soothing a Nervous Bride on her Wedding Day
Wedding days can be stressful for everyone; friends, families, in-laws, etc. The truth of the
matter is, no one feels the stress of a wedding more than the bride. Brides can get extremely
overwhelmed and stressed as the time gets closer for them to walk down the aisle. I’m here to
share some tips and advice on how to help your bride soothe her wedding day nerves.
1. Make Some Tea- Tea often has calming properties that can lead to faster relaxation.
Grab a cup of hot tea for the nervous bride. Chamomile or lavender tea works best for
anxiety. Just make sure to not give her too much, or the high levels of caffeine can
actually have adverse effects!
2. Lead Breathing Exercises- The last thing
you want an anxious bride to do is
hyperventilate and pass out on her big day.
Help the bride calm her breathing by doing
breathing exercises with her. You can find
many different breathing techniques online.
One popular breathing exercise is ‘Box
Breathing’ (inhaling for four seconds,
exhaling for four seconds, repeat).
3. Talk to her and Listen- Sometimes, brides who are stressed just need to talk it out and
be listened to. All they want to know is that they’re being heard. Reassure the bride that
everything will be okay and that she is going to have an amazing day. Let the bride vent
if she needs to, but redirect the conversation to positive thinking.
4. Play Her Favorite Music- Music has often been
associated with having calming effects in stressful
situations. Connect with the bride before her big day
and curate a playlist that is customized with all of
her favorite music. Whenever you start to see the
nerves building up, turn on the playlist and position
the music in a good place where she will be able to
listen to it.
5. Try Giving the Bride a Massage- There’s nothing
that a good massage won’t fix to ease the tension out
of someone. If the bride isn’t in a hurry to go
anywhere, have her sit down and receive a good
shoulder rub from one of her trusted companions.
And just like that, you’ve learned 5 new ways to ensure that the bride feels a little less stressed
on her big day. For more tips and advice surrounding a bride’s big day, follow our blog and stay
