Sometimes on your wedding day, it can be easy to feel pressure for everything to go perfectly. After months of planning, you want everything to go off without a hitch! Makes total sense!! But you also don’t want to feel rushed or scattered throughout your day. 

As a destination wedding videographer, I have spent time with so many couples on their big day, and have learned a few helpful tricks that help my clients have a relaxed day.

So here is how to not feel rushed on your wedding day:

Mindset:

The biggest thing you can do to not feel that pressure is to decide your mindset BEFORE the day. A helpful thing to remember? Nothing on your wedding day will start without you. It’s OKAY if you’re running late or need a few extra minutes. Everything will wait. While a thoughtfully developed timeline is crucial to feeling relaxed, ultimately it’s a state of mind. And it’s okay for things to not go according to the plan. Your wedding vendors will know how to adapt. So allow yourself to slow down and not feel rushed on your wedding day. 

Create a Plan:

That being said, work with your wedding planner on your timeline and make sure your photo/video team agrees with the time allocated for each event. Your wedding vendors have collectively been involved in the logistics of hundreds of weddings, and they will be able to help you create a realistic timeline that will help the day flow smoothly. Videographers, photographers & planners can help you make sure you give yourself enough time (and then some) to the times of day that tend to run long…like getting ready or family photos! Let us use our experience to find blindspots in your timeline! 

Prioritize!:

Prioritize what is most important to you and your partner on your wedding day and plan time for that. If you want to be dancing with your guests, plan an hour of uninterrupted dance time for you two. Or you want to enjoy a moment just the two of you after your first look or after your ceremony, add that in and let people know your plans. If getting ready with your friends is important, plan a little event with them in the morning to make sure you get that quality time in. Don’t be afraid to throw out any traditional wedding timeline & craft something that is unique for your priorities. That will go a long way in helping you not feel rushed on your wedding day! 

Hire Solid Vendors:

Ask your photographer/videographer how much time is needed for formal photos, first look etc. When you hire vendors with experience they will benefit your day so much by bringing this knowledge to the table. Take the guesswork out of the equation by relying on your team. Allowing yourself to be supported is such an important part of having the day of your dreams. So focus on hiring people you trust because of their experience, and you “click” with because of their personality – and then let them help you run the show.
