Let’s face it. Weddings can be so much fun, but they can also be fast paced and make us forget what day of the week it is! From forgetting to book your final fitting to forgetting to invite your great aunt Lisa, it can all be a bit messy at times.
If you have an upcoming wedding, don’t worry! We are here to give you some tips on how to reduce stress and to enjoy the moments leading up to your special day instead of worrying about them. We got your back!
1. Hire a wedding planner
Those who brave out the storm alone usually tend to be the most stressed about planning their special day. With hiring a wedding planner, stress is instantly taken out of the equation! We aren’t saying that there won’t be days where you have a lot on your plate (you are going to have a wedding after all), but wedding planners can help take an immense amount of pressure off of your shoulders!
From having connections to vendors, from coordinating the entire day, your wedding planner will essentially become your hero when it comes to making your vision a reality! Not to mention, they will help keep things on track when it comes to your budget and can possibly help with vendor discounts. Need we say more?
2. When in Doubt, Talk it out
This may be an obvious one, but there are so many brides and grooms who hold in their thoughts and frustration. All of those emotions can add up and take the joy out of planning your wedding. Being open and honest with someone you trust, whether that be your fiancé or a close friend, will help you let out what’s bothering you and get some advice that may really help you. You’ll be able to talk it out, breathe, and keep going! We promise you will feel better after, it works like a charm!
3. Trust the Ones You Love
It’s okay to fall back on the people that are close to you. That’s what they are there for! From your best man/maid of honor to your mother-in-law, they are there to help you get through all of the highs and lows that come with planning a wedding. Give them a list of things that you may need help along with all of the details for each. Remember, just because it is your wedding day doesn’t mean you HAVE to do it all. We all need some help from time to time!
4. Spend Time With Your Fiancé
Your love for each other is what led you here in the first place, right? Spending time reconnecting can help not only relieve stress for you and your partner, but it can also help bring you two closer together and enrich your relationship! This is especially true if you’ve both been caught up in wedding planning. Go on a date night, rent a movie and pop some popcorn, or simply spend time outdoors together. Anything that will help both of you rekindle and relax is a win in our book!
