Small weddings are always a good idea because you will be surrounded by only your immediate family and close friends. In fact, you won’t have to oblige people with small talks! The icing on the cake is that you won’t have many new faces to meet-and-greet!  Most importantly, discuss this with your partner and if he also agrees to your plan then nothing like it.

You deserve it! You can’t just be drowning yourself in every little detail. Go for a spa, meditate or enroll for yoga or Zumba classes. Release all the negative energy and come back rejuvenated, ready for the next day’s tasks. Like we advised earlier, have a set of people who can take care of stuff and buzz you only if it is an emergency.

Being an introvert, you are naturally shy before the camera. So, it is important that you have a meeting with your wedding photographer and break the ice; set up a gup-shupsession and get to know each other. Tell them your story and share the details about where you’d like to get your pre-wedding shoot done etc. After all, your comfort is the most important thing.

It is totally up to you whether you want to answer all the questions that people ask you, but make sure that in any case, you don’t wear a grumpy face. Answer in a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ whichever seems fit, and of course, complemented with a smile. Everyone understands that you are preoccupied and those who don’t should anyway not bother you. People will anyway say what they’ve got to say, no?

We know how much you dislike those huddles with everyone having something to say about either the phoolwalah or the makeup artist or the halwai or the caterer. If you’re not in the mood to meet a few people, have a Skype chat or FaceTime so that everything is tackled one at a time and there’s no noise and nervous energy floating. See, everything can be handled!

#8. You don’t have to give a wedding speech or say thank you all at once!

Yes, you don’t have to unless you are confident that you can say your wedding vows before the guests. If your spouse-to-be is comfortable doing that just let them! Do not dampen their spirits, prepare a line or two instead to keep the mood up. As far as the thank you speech for your guests is concerned, you can send them personalised thank you notes after you are back from your wedding vacation.

If you are stressed about something and you don’t see a way out just speak to someone you trust. It could be your siblings, or parents or your partner. Let them wear the hat of a problem solver and find a solution. Things eventually work out, don’t they? Relax!
