“I hate big weddings with everybody staring. I’d like to get married on a weekday while everybody’s at work.” Julia Roberts said it best in Runaway Bride. Everyone getting married does not to be the main attraction, some people are quite content with not having a sweetheart table and not having the theatrical first dance with all the attention focused on them, this is where a Wedding Day Survival Guide for Introverts comes into play.
Wedding Day Survival Tips for Introverts
-Only invite your closest family and friends – why have to deal with people you don’t really know and don’t care to speak with?
-Hire a Coordinator – that way you can delegate and don’t have to think about anything besides yourself and your partner
-Focus on your significant other while the Officiant is speaking – don’t be distracted by all the cameras flashing and clapping
-Don’t walk down the aisle, find a shorter route to the Officiant and your partner – it’s your wedding you create the rules!
-Keep the ceremony short and sweet – why draw it out?
-Don’t do a flashy entrance, enter your reception with your guests instead
-Skip the sweetheart table – you can sit with your bridal party and you can even have the DJ booth be the center of attention
-Have you DJ cut down your first dance song – who wants to be out there for 4 whole minutes anyway?
-Have a shorter reception – you don’t have to throw the bouquet or deal with a garter!
-ELOPE (cough cough: we do Pop Up Weddings)!
You can still have a fabulous wedding while focusing on your own feelings and thoughts!
