5 Simple Tips to Help Take the Stress Out of Planning a Wedding

Let me guess… you are planning a wedding and you are a tad bit stressed out? Okay, you’re a lot stressed out! I’m here to help! Today we are talking about 5 simple tips to help take the Stress Out of Planning a Wedding.

Learn to say no

Planning a wedding is exciting and fun but it can also be one of the busiest times of your life. If you don’t want to end up being a nervous wreck a week before your big day, learn to prioritize and say no to any new commitments that would take away from other important wedding-related tasks. It’s really ok to say no every now and then. I promise you, it’s okay!

Become the Queen of Organization

The more organized you are, the better your wedding planning experience will be. Keep a digital copy of all of your important documents, contracts and information in one file on your computer so that you can easily refer back to them when you need to. If you want to be able to bring important documents along to meetings with vendors, you can always create a wedding binder that contains all of the information you need. Plus it makes for a great backup copy too.

Have a little fun 

There’s no need for you to be a frazzled bride. Take out your calendar and schedule a few fun days in-between all of your planning. Make fun and laughter a priority in the weeks leading up to your wedding. Sometimes it’s important to come back down to earth and remember why you’re choosing to marry your partner and that trying to control every single aspect of your day is only going to leave you wishing it was over. Go out and enjoy an afternoon with the girls where you don’t talk about the wedding at all. 

This is why I ALWAYS recommend to my couples to make their engagement photos a fun day with dinner after their session!

Move your body

Exercise does wonders when you’ve got a lot on your plate, like planning a wedding. Just need to take a breather and focus on your health. This doesn’t mean that you need to schedule in an hour at the gym every day either. If you’re strapped for time, a simple 15-20 minute walk or yoga session will make all the difference to your stress and energy levels. 

Just breath

Take a complete timeout from wedding planning as often as you need to. Every bride deserves a relaxing soak in the tub! Or have a heavenly hot stone massage to relieve some of the tension she might be feeling from planning a wedding. It can be difficult to make time to simply relax but do your best to find the time. Even if it’s just 30 minutes a week, it will make a huge difference.
