Don’t be shy about “bootlegging” your diabetes supplies
One of the most important things for you to take care of (right away, or at least as soon as humanly possible) is to make sure that your wedding gown or your tuxedo is modified to help you hide all of your diabetes supplies and tools.
You’ll want to find a local tailor that can help you retain the overall shape and look of your wedding clothes while at the same time giving you “secret pockets” that you’ll be able to store all of your diabetes supplies in it.
This is one of the easiest ways to make sure that you’re always ready for a diabetic emergency, or that you’re prepared to monitor your situation as the day goes on, without having to lug unsightly or uncomfortable bags or carriers around.
Give your diabetes supplies a “dry run”
Once you’ve had your clothes modified, you’re going to want to make sure that you are completely and totally comfortable getting access to and using those supplies while at the same time making sure that they remain completely and totally hidden from view to the casual onlooker.
This means suiting up and “going through the motions”, making sure that everything is exactly the weight you want it to be without any headache or hassle whatsoever. It might be a bit of an inconvenience to have to go through this step, but it’s better to deal with the hassle of front and make sure that everything is going to go according to plan rather than to “wing it” on your big day and have something end up going wrong.
A little bit of practice makes perfect.
You’ll also want to pay attention to what your blood sugar levels and other vitals are up to as you go through your day to day routine leading up to the wedding, as you’ll learn how stress, pressure, anxiety, and excitement all play a role affecting your physiology – and you’ll know how to address those issues during your wedding.
Make sure that your menu is filled with diabetes friendly desserts and treats
There is nothing worse than making sure that each and every one of your guests are able to enjoy the food at your wedding knowing that you aren’t going to be able to eat any more than just a couple of bites because of your diabetes – but it’s a common problem that affects weddings all over the world on a daily basis.
Make sure that your wedding menu is as diabetes friendly as humanly possible (especially when it comes to treats and desserts), especially if you know that you’re going to be looking forward to snacking later on in the evening.
It’s also going to be critical that your wedding cake is diabetes friendly as well – that’s going to be a major part of your big day, and a big part of your life going forward!
At the end of the day, it’s important that you make sure that you eliminate as much stress and pressure from your life as humanly possible when you’re getting geared up for your wedding day.
This is supposed to be a celebration, a moment when you get the chance to really shine and enjoy yourself and the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. By focusing on the tips and tricks above, you’ll never have to worry about diabetes coming in between you and the memories that you make on your wedding day!
