Here are a few tips to keep you feeling good and to help you actually enjoy the process of planning your wedding.
If youre like most brides, youre busy planning your wedding with little or no help from anyone else. Those who are caught up in wedding plans can often get sidetracked and can become stressed out in the entire process. The result? A stressed out, frazzled bride who isnt having much fun. Instead, try a few tips to keep you feeling good and to help you actually enjoy the process of planning your wedding.
Slow Down Most brides take off running as soon as they get engaged. Its a good idea to take a step back and take a deep breath. You dont need to be planning your wedding every minute of every day. By slowing down youll be able to see what youre doing, become more organized, and actually enjoy the planning process.
Get Help No, you dont need to do everything yourself. One mistake many brides make is thinking that they must have a hand in each and every item on their wedding planning list. Instead, get some help. Delegate some of the tasks to others and allow them to handle their tasks without interference. This will help you prepare for the wedding without extra stress.
Dont Sweat the Small Stuff Some brides get caught up in the small details of the wedding. Remember that some decisions really dont matter all that much. Dont dwell on the little details and keep in mind the details that are most important. As the bride youll need to be able to let some of the decisions go and dont worry about the small things.
Keep the Big Picture in Mind Remember that the process itself is part of the fun of the wedding experience. After all, for all the months of planning, the wedding itself will be over in a matter of a few short hours. Youll be happier throughout the process if you can enjoy the experience of planning the event.
Dont become a Bridezilla Nobody likes a crazy bride. Avoid becoming a bridezilla by taking things less seriously. If you find yourself slipping into this stage its time to step back and do something to relax. Take a day off from planning and do something else. Have some fun with your fiancé that doesnt revolve around planning the wedding.
Stay Organized If you stay organized youll have a much easier planning time and therefore a better experience. Keep a notebook and calendar with all the information you need in one place. Use a timeline to keep you on track.
Relax Finally, its important to stay relaxed. When youre tense and nervous you wont be enjoying yourself. Take bubble baths, get regular massages, exercise, and do fun activities that you enjoy. When you find yourself getting too stressed out do something to help relax and release the pressure youre feeling. Ask your best friend to help you recognize when youre getting too stressed out so you can take some time to renew yourself.
