If you are an introverted or shy couple, planning your wedding can be a daunting task. You may feel overwhelmed and anxious about the thought of having all eyes on you throughout the big day. Fortunately, Deity is here to help! Here are some things Deity can do for Brides or Grooms who might not be feeling ready for a big crowd on their wedding day.
Event Coordinator to the Rescue
We understand that not everyone loves being the center of attention, so let us know at your planning meeting if this is something that you are struggling with. To our event coordinator, you enjoying your wedding is always top priority. We will work with you to create an event that celebrates your love without making you uncomfortable. Our team will ensure that all of your guests feel comfortable and included while also ensuring that you have a beautiful and memorable day!
Tell us ahead of time what typically helps you when you are feeling a bit panicked. A Deity Event Coordinator understands the needs of an introverted couple and can be prepared with snacks, tea, cocktails, time alone and even their best friend to help them relax in high-stress situations. They are equipped with the resources to ensure that all your needs are met during this special time.
Escape to the Wedding Suite
The Wedding Suite can be an extremely welcomed retreat if you are one who needs frequent breaks from small talk, hugs, and compliments. In our Event-Coordinator’s experience, it’s often the make or break addition for many couples with anxiety. Relax and have a cocktail or a plate of food at your own pace in your hide out. At the very least it’s a place to breathe or have a moment alone with your newly betrothed.
As simple as it sounds, don’t do things you don’t feel like doing. Opt for an informal cake cutting versus a formal cake cutting. Let your crowd dance in the night while you quickly cut the cake instead of having a performative moment where all eyes are on you.
Blend in with the crowd and do a cocktail style dinner which is more informal than a seated dinner where you are at a head table. A cocktail style dinner works great if you know you will need to take little breaks throughout the evening, it’s much easier to slip away.
Often time it’s the little things that really grind on the nerves, so it’s important to not let them all add up until you feel overwhelmed. Wear a comfortable dress and shoes! If you need to you can always change! Especially if you rent the Suite you can change into a whole new look. It’s also helpful to keep a min-makeup bag handy with your best friend or with your event coordinator for makeup touches.
