Living In The Moment On Your Wedding Day

May 25, 2021

After years of planning and hosting Raleigh weddings, The Sutherland staff is here to share a few tips and tricks so that you are able to fully live in the moment on your wedding day.


Raleigh weddings at The Sutherland really are a dream come true—The gorgeous house, beautiful garden setting, and perfectly planned decor will no doubt make your wedding day unforgettable. But what most brides do not realize is that all that wedding planning they’ve done for months will be over in the blink of an eye! I’m sure you’ve heard people tell brides that the day will go by so fast, don’t blink, and to take it all in, but how exactly does one do that on the biggest day of their life? After years of planning and hosting Raleigh weddings, The Sutherland staff is here to share a few tips and tricks so that you are able to fully live in the moment on your wedding day.

Enjoy The Planning Stages

As your Raleigh wedding date draws near and you’re scrambling to wrap up last-minute details, it can be easy to get caught up in the chaos rather than fully appreciating this special time in your life. Though your to-do list is long, you will never get those last few days leading up to your wedding back. Try not to put things off until the last minute. Instead, set some time aside to go on a romantic date with your fiance, get your nails done with your mom, or get ice cream with your dad. Whatever you decide to do, just make sure you put the checklist aside, slow down, and focus on all the love and joy happening around you.


Delegating Day-of Tasks

Delegating day-of tasks is another way to really live in the moment on your wedding day. Your family and best friends are all happy to lend a helping hand, so let them! Assign anyone who’s willing to help with a job to do on the big day to help lighten your load and minimize the number of trivial tasks and issues that you have to stress about. Assign each of them a task, whether it’s making sure the bouquets are in water when not being used or simply keeping an eye on the clock to make sure you are where you need to be on time, you will know that your wedding day to-do list is in safe hands and your main job can be focusing on being present and enjoying each and every moment.


Take Some Alone Time

Stepping away from the party and your guests to have a few minutes alone with your new hubby is something every bride should do. In the whirlwind of chatting with guests, posing for pictures, and honoring Raleigh wedding traditions like cake cutting and toasts, a quick moment alone can be tricky to steal, but oh so worth it. Soak in all of the love that surrounds you. Everyone you care about has come together on this special day all because of the two of you!

With all of that being said, the most important advice we can give you: Don’t sweat the small stuff. Focus on all the good, important things—marrying the love of your life, having all of your friends and family in one place—and you’ll get the most out of your day. Your Raleigh wedding at The Sutherland will be the best day of your life, guaranteed!
