Even though it is the most-awaited day of her life and an extremely joyous occasion, the wedding day can bring any bride on the brink of complete exhaustion. The wedding planning stress, nervousness about beginning a new life, and the daunting task of wearing a heavy outfit and jewellery, can make even the most cheerful of girls irritable.
