5 Wedding Planning Stress Reducers

November 14, 2021

5 Wedding Planning Stress Reducers – Here are simple ways to cut back on the unnecessary pressures around planning your wedding.

Learn to say no

First, 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 critical wedding-related tasks. It’s ok to say no now and then. 

Become the master 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 bring essential 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 an excellent backup copy too. Moreover, consider hiring a professional wedding planner to keep things for you. Click here for 5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner.

Have a little fun 

There’s no need for you to be a frazzled bride or groom. Take out your calendar and schedule a few fun days in between all of your planning. For instance, take fun and laughter a priority in the weeks leading up to your wedding. Sometimes it’s essential 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. 

Move your body

Exercise does wonders when you’ve got a lot on your plate and need to take a breather and focus on your health. You don’t need to schedule an hour at the gym every day either. If you don’t have the time, a simple 15-20 minute walk or yoga session will make all the difference to your stress and energy levels. 

Just breathe

Finally, take a full timeout from wedding planning as often as you need to. Everyone deserves a relaxing soak in the tub or a heavenly hot stone massage to relieve some of the tension you might be feeling. It can be challenging to make time to relax but do your best to find the time, even if it’s just 30 minutes a week.
