Wedding day planning, preparations and celebrating are usually full of excitement, but for many brides who are introverted, (shy girl) it can bring a lot of anxiety. A bride should enjoy the season of engagement and their big day, so what’s an introverted or shy bride to do who just wants to stay away from the crowds and spotlight? Celebrate the way that fits you! Family and friends may pressure you to celebrate big, but it doesn’t have to include a guest list of 500. You have the freedom to do things your way and you will be happier without the anxiety! Here’s a shy girl’s guide to the planning and wedding day.


Limit the Parties and Showers

Having to attend multiple engagement parties and bridal showers can become overwhelming for anyone, especially if you tend to be more of an introvert. Limiting the number of parties and showers you have will help you to enjoy the ones you have scheduled and not become overwhelmed. Don’t feel that you need to make a lot of small talk, instead maybe you and your fiance can say one big thank you at the end of the event, rather than going around chatting with everyone.


Smaller Bridal Party

Having a smaller bridal party will decrease the chance of drama and the number of people offering their opinions along the way, especially if your best friends are extroverted. It is far easier to manage a bridal party of three to four women compared to over six. This will allow all of you to enjoy the experience as much as possible. It will also be more fun on the dance floor with your DJ!


Talk To Your Photographer and Videographer

Communicate with your photographer, DJ, and videographer to confirm details and make sure they understand what you are looking for. Give them a heads up of guests who may try to take over the show ahead of time so they can deal with any potential stresses on your big day so it’s off your plate. Hire your wedding photographer to take your engagement photos so they can get to know your style. Share your favorite playlist with the DJ so he can know your style too.


Simple Pre-Ceremony

Keeping your pre-ceremony simple and intentional will allow to you to be your best self for the ceremony and reception. Many couples find it helpful to do a first look photo opportunity and take group pictures before the actual ceremony. This keeps things from being rushed and takes off some of the pressure.


Take Breaks

Be sure to and take some me time. Don’t feel like you need to be on all day. Do a few things that energize you and help keep you grounded, such as taking a walk, drinking coffee or reading a book. This is your day and you can make it exactly what you want. This will keep you smiling and enthusiastic, rather than just surviving the endless conversations. Let a few people know ahead of time that you are going to be pulling away for just a few minutes so they know and can take care of anything that needs help or addressing. Whatever you need as a shy girl, do it!


Make the Reception Yours

What stresses you out when you think about your wedding reception? Do you want to give speeches or dance in front of everyone? If the answer is no, then skip it! Many brides make memories that last a lifetime through their first dance, but you may not feel the same about what’s meaningful and thoughtful for others. Do what feels right for you and your fiance. At the end of the day this is your special day and you need to be true to your shy girl self!


Take care of your shy girl self so that you can enjoy this special time and don’t let others tell you how large or small your wedding needs to be. It’s your turn. Do what it takes, shy girl, and don’t feel bad about it because every bride is different!
