Take 10 rea­sons why you shouldn’t stress over your wed­ding day

Friday - - Bookmark -

1 The day will pass so quickly you re­ally won’t have time to care if your adorable lit­tle flower girl throws a tantrum at the cer­e­mony, or if the priest gets your name wrong in front of your 390 laugh­ing fam­ily and friends. 2Only

your el­derly aunts will re­mem­ber whether you or­dered fresh or­chids, com­mis­sioned a new species of ge­net­i­cally ma­nip­u­lated gi­ant black tulips or sim­ply used com­mon white roses. Most of your guests will not even re­mem­ber if there were flow­ers. 3You

can wear a beau­ti­ful Vera Wang gown or a lo­cal tai­lor’s ill-fit­ting cre­ation – your groom will still think he’s the luck­i­est man alive to be mar­ry­ing you. 4Re­lax

about the lo­gis­tics. There will al­ways be loved ones who un­ex­pect­edly or­gan­ise them­selves and take care of what­ever may be nec­es­sary, while you shine on undis­turbed. 5Turn­ing

into Bridezilla is not par­tic­u­larly pretty. Pre-wed­ding stress tends to ruin your com­plex­ion. Plus that green­ish hue on your skin won’t re­ally com­ple­ment your dress. 6Those

beau­ti­ful de­tails that had you glued to your com­puter un­til 3am for the past few months are not re­ally that nec­es­sary. Try to re­mem­ber what you do with all those lovely (ie use­less) wed­ding favours… yup. 7Shoes

are not that im­por­tant af­ter all; if not hid­den un­der your dress, you will end up toss­ing them away halfway through the evening, promis­ing your­self that you’ll never wear those killer heels again. 8Thank­fully

the day ends with a party. At which point all of you are happily danc­ing and bel­lies are full. What flavour cake was it, again? 9You

won’t re­mem­ber most of the de­tails any­way. Even your guests will even­tu­ally for­get all the nig­gling bits that went wrong. All you will be left with is a great feel­ing. 10The

next day you will wake up on a hon­ey­moon par­adise is­land. Re­ally, who cares about any­thing else? As told to Hina Navin, a Dubai-based free­lancer
