Your mind will settle, your nerves will calm and you can enjoy your surroundings.
BE MINDFUL ON CUE
Choose a phrase you’ll hear often on your wedding day, like “How are you feeling?” or “Are you excited?” and use it as a cue to be mindful.

Because when you’re not comfortable that’s all you can think about, seriously! You want to choose a wedding dress that doesn’t constrict your breathing or movement.
Pick out five things you see, four things you feel, three things you hear, two things you smell and one thing you taste (if possible).
USE YOUR HANDS
Feel the material of your wedding gown, the curls in your hair, the warmth of someone’s hand. This is experiencing the moment.
ENJOY A HOT BEVERAGE
Sit down for a cup of coffee or tea. Hold the warm mug in your hands and sip slowly while taking in everything around you.
You can do this through prayer, by saying it out loud to the people around you or writing it down like you would in a journal.
Like there’s no tomorrow. Agree in advance that you and your spouse are going to laugh at everything together, no matter what happens during the day, and dance your hearts out until the end of the night.
