Bridal Fears And How To Overcome Them

Bridal Fears and How to Overcome Them

By Laurenzo Overee

A wedding is an overwhelming process. It’s an incredible milestone, but there are many steps to consider, and a mistake could lead to a devastating domino effect. If you are a bride or bride-to-be, bridal fears are probably a lingering nightmare.

They’re constantly plaguing your mind while you’re at work, talking to loved ones, or simply minding your own business in your daily commute. These fears trespass your mind and cause a wave of unease that shakes you to the pits of your stomach. But ultimately, know that you have complete control over how you respond and react to any undesirable situation. It’s time to get your head in the game before you walk the aisle. 

Bridal Fears #1 – Things Generally Not Going as Planned

A wedding, like any other thing in life, is ultimately unpredictable. You can have the best plan, but the real-world dynamics make it impossible to calculate and negate every disaster. Thinking you can is already setting yourself up for failure. 

What you can do, however, is to find an expert to minimise the errors that may occur – and come up with a contingency in case your worst fears come true. Chances are, you have little experience with the modern bridal scene, and you don’t know how weddings really go about play-by-play. However, a bridal consultant does – anticipating the usual problems and skilfully avoiding them with confidence. 

Banquet cabernet sauvignon doesn’t taste as sweet as you thought? Wedding gown appears more yellow than white under the ballroom chandelier? Let those details be and focus on enjoying the moment. If things don’t go as planned, improvise and jump to option B, don’t let the unwanted surprise ruin the special celebration. 

Bridal Fears #2 – Disappointing Your Guests

Repeat after us. “The wedding is about my partner and me.” Now mentally repeat that a set amount of times until it sinks into your mind. 

We have encountered many brides who are natural people pleasers. They always go the extra mile to satisfy the needs of their in-laws, parents, bosses, etc. However, it’s unhealthy if you feel utterly drained from acceding to the wishes of others. For example, if you want a non-conventional wedding gown, go for it!

Your wedding is an ultra-personal event – so just focus on you and your partner. Everybody else should rank second place – it makes things easier (emotionally and logistically) and helps you stay sane to appear at your best.

Bridal Fears #3 – Wedding Photography Mishaps

Wedding photography captures the genuine bond between couples, freezing the most heart-melting moments. It’s also loads of fun, playing with various themes, props, poses, and venues. That’s if everything falls in place nicely. There are many ways that a photoshoot can “go south” in a heartbeat. 

So to spare yourself the trouble of worrying about every detail during the photoshoot – reach out to a reliable photographer. A qualified expert will be your guide throughout the shoot – optimising every frame with value for your money. La Belle’s partnering photographers have tons of professional experience to assist you through every concern and murky situation. 

From planning wet weather alternatives to specialized editing, you can rest your mind knowing that your pictures will turn out gallery-worthy.  




Of course, what we covered is merely the tip of the iceberg. The bottom line is, it’s normal to have bridal fears. However, you have power over them, and it should never be the other way around.
