It’s natural to have some jitters on your wedding morning. In fact, many brides lose their cool for a bit, but still go on to have long and happy marriages. Still, you would probably like to spend those moments before you walk down the aisle thinking happy thoughts about your future instead of worrying about why your heart is beating so fast. At the Crystal Ballroom in Orlando, we have lots of experience with helping couples to feel calmer. Here are 5 of our favorite soothing strategies for wedding mornings that we want to share with you:

Surround yourself with support: At times like this, you need the family members and friends you can count on to be positive and caring. You want someone whose presence makes you smile and relax.

Talk it out: It helps to try to put your feelings into words, especially when you have a sympathetic ear. Discussing what’s on your mind may help you clarify what you’re really thinking.

Take a deep breath: For an instant boost, sit up straight, and take a deep breath. Let your anxious thoughts drift away. Exhaling relaxes your brain so work towards a rhythm where your exhalations last as long as your inhalations.

Meditate: You may not have the time or concentration for a long session, but you can still spend a few moments in quiet contemplation. It will be even more effective if you start practicing before your big day.

Move around: Exercise dissolves tension. Consider getting up extra early so you can do yoga or ride your bike. If not, you can still do some simple stretches or take a gentle walk.
