How Can Hypnotherapy Help You on Your Wedding Day?

The sky is blue, the sun is shining and all the birds are singing in the trees.  It is early summer and the wedding season has arrived once more.  Every weekend from now until the end of September, happy couples will be tying the knot on what is supposed to be the happiest day of their lives. You want your wedding day to be full of love, joy and elation. But for too many couples, the weeks leading up to the wedding can be filled with stress, anxiety and even fear. This is a very special day that the couple, especially the bride, and their families have been dreaming of and planning in their heads for years, so there are a lot of expectations to be met, especially an expectation that the day must be perfect right down to the tiniest detail.

So can hypnotherapy help you plan and enjoy your wedding day feeling relaxed, calm and happy?

Stress and Anxiety:

If planning a wedding as well as working and getting on with your day to day life is leaving you feeling tired, stressed and anxious, then hypnotherapy sessions can help you to relax and stay relaxed whatever is thrown at you.  You will also learn some great techniques such as self hypnosis and EFT that you can use at home, to keep you feeling chilled and carefree even when the relatives start squabbling about seating plans or your wedding dress needs to be altered at the last minute.


Many brides and grooms feel extremely uncomfortable at the thought of being the centre of attention for the whole day and do not like the idea of the spotlight being on them.  Hypnosis can help to improve your confidence levels, so that you can really enjoy walking down the aisle with all eyes on you and taking to the floor for that all-important first dance.

Fear of Public Speaking:

At many weddings the best man, the bride’s father, the groom and increasingly the bride make speeches at the wedding reception.  Fear of public speaking can turn the speech maker into a miserable, bundle of nerves weeks before the actual wedding day and ruin any sense of excitement and anticipation.  Hypnosis can help to calm those speech making nerves, so that you can look forward to the wedding happily and fully enjoy the actual day, rather than letting the dread of having to speak in public cast a dark shadow over the whole proceedings.

Social Anxiety:

A lot of people just aren’t that comfortable having to socialise with large groups of people.  Standing in the line up greeting lots of people you may not know very well, being seated on a table with strangers and being expected to chat and mingle at the reception can be very stressful for some people and can lessen their enjoyment of the occasion. A few hypnosis sessions will help you to relax and overcome your fears and anxieties.

Weight Loss:

Every bride wants to look their best on their wedding day, and hypnotherapy can be a really useful tool if you are trying to shed a few pounds.  Having some hypnotherapy sessions will help you to lose weight more easily, improve your relationship around food and ease those cravings. Hypnosis can also help you if you are losing too much weight because you are stressed, rushing around and not eating properly.

Skin Problems and IBS:

If you suffer from skin problems or IBS, you may find that the stresses of planning your wedding can cause distressing flare ups.  Getting everything sorted out on time is challenging enough without having to deal with the painful symptoms of IBS or a skin eruption and you certainly don’t want to have to deal with them on your big day.  Having hypnosis can help to ease your IBS or skin problems, leaving you to enjoy the occasion with confidence.


The idea of a honeymoon on an exotic tropical beach is idyllic.  However, fear of flying, fear of water or a phobia such as a fear of snakes or insects could be causing you to dread rather than look forward to these precious first few weeks of your marriage.  Hypnotherapy can help eliminate these phobias, so that you can look forward to and enjoy a long-haul flight, splash around happily in those warm, tropical seas and explore jungles and rainforests without the fear of seeing a snake or a spider.

So as you can see, hypnotherapy can help in many different ways; enabling you to truly relax and enjoy your wedding day.  Allow yourself the freedom to no longer worry about everything being perfect, how the relatives are all going to get on, what you look like or being the centre of attention.  You really deserve your wedding day to be the occasion you have always dreamed of, a day that you will never forget for all the right reasons.
