How to Stay Sane While Planning Your Wedding
Getting married is one of the most exciting times in a person’s life. However, it is hard to be excited when you are struggling not to lose your mind.
Wedding planning can be extremely stressful, even for a man or woman who is used to organizing social events and events in general. There are hundreds of different things to take into consideration – who to send wedding invitations to, food, drinks, where the wedding will take place, decorations, etc. It is a lot for one or two people to take on, and sometimes the bride and groom will be left feeling overwhelmed, even though they are the ones who are supposed to feel happy during this time!
What are some ways to avoid insanity and still have peaceful days leading up to the big day?
Stay united with your partner
This is extremely important. If you feel like you are isolated and alone in the stress, it will become all the more unbearable and it can cause tension within your relationship. It’s important for the bride and groom to work as a team to make sure that the wedding is planned successfully. Talking for a couple of minutes everyday and shopping for decorations together is simple and will give you some experience that will definitely help you down the road in your marriage (getting along!).
Take time to relax
Even if you feel like everything is going to be a disaster, you need to unwind. Do whatever it takes to relax yourself, whether you like to read, paint, or get in the bath with a glass of wine. Tell yourself over and over gain that you do not deserve to be stressed out about such a beautiful life moment. Do things that make you happy and at peace, and everything else will come together.
Know your budget. Know what the game plan is. Don’t get overwhelmed by too many fancy ideas and dream weddings that you aspire to have. Each wedding is unique and special, and comparing yours to another will lead to a sense of unfulfillment, and will definitely add to the stress. Make a plan for your wedding planning and establish boundaries so that you will not go overboard and freak yourself out with unrealistic expectations.
And last but not least… Enjoy!
This is your wedding. This is meant to be enjoyed. From the moment of the proposal, you should be savoring each moment. These moments are meant to be remembered and not shrouded in a cloud of stress and despair. A wedding should be fun – every moment of it, even the crazy moments. Stay positive, keep yourself relaxed, and confide in your partner whenever you are feeling upset about things. It will keep you grounded and sane.
These are some simple ways to focus on wedding planning and not let it drive you crazy. No bride or groom should be stressed out during the months it takes to plan the wedding and get everything organized, from the engagement to the ceremony. Their should be support, relaxation, fun, and enjoyment! Wedding planning can even be fun if you choose to focus on the positive and not let yourself get overwhelmed with small details that in the end, won’t matter.
