8 Tips for How to be More Present on Your Wedding Day

Everyone will tell you: wedding days go by so fast! Couples often plan their wedding over a 12-18 month period, yet it goes by in a blink of an eye. As photographers, we’re here to capture it for you so you can remember it once your memories start to fade, but here are some tips on how to be more present on your wedding day so you can truly enjoy your big day:

  1. Set intentions: Before your wedding day, take some time to set intentions for yourself on what you want to focus on and what you want to take away from your wedding experience. This will help you stay grounded and focused throughout the day.
  2. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is the practice of being present and aware of the moment. Try to take deep breaths and focus on your surroundings throughout the day.
  3. Take breaks: Weddings can be overwhelming, so make sure to take breaks when you need them. Whether it’s a few minutes alone or a quick walk outside, taking a break can help you refocus and come back to the present moment.
  4. Be present with your partner: Your wedding day is not just about you; it’s about celebrating your love and commitment with your partner. Make sure to take some time to be present with them, whether it’s holding hands, sharing a dance, or simply looking into each other’s eyes.
  5. Be present with your guests: Your guests have come to celebrate with you and your partner. Make sure to take some time to be present with them, whether it’s chatting, dancing, or taking photos.
  6. Try to be present in the moment, take in the sounds, sights, and feelings of your wedding day and enjoy it.
  7. Appoint someone you trust to handle any unexpected situations, and if they occur, try not to let them ruin your present moment
  8. Take time to enjoy the small details, and make sure to savor each memory you make on your big day.
