#5 – All Things Bridal – Remaining Stress Free

by z.lynn

no matter where you are in your planning, i’m sure you’ve already experienced some level of stress. this is because planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort. wedding planning coupled with a job or kids is a recipe for anxiety and stress. this is not to say that it is impossible.

if you are taking on the task of planning your wedding, keep in mind the following tips:

  • ask for help – your bridesmaids and maid/matron of honor may have already begun to help you organize things; your friends and family members will also be willing to assist you; should you need further help, don’t be afraid to ask
  • get organized – use a planner (online or notebook) to help sort everything out; you will have many decisions to make from now up until the wedding day, having some sort of organization will help things not become too overwhelming
  • put together a timeline and prioritize tasks – again, there will be many decisions to make; keeping a task list together and setting a deadline on the calendar for those items will help keep you organized; this also helps you to be able to visualize everything that needs to be done and bring in extra help, if necessary
  • take time to relax – de-stress whenever you feel the need to; hot bubble baths, listening to music, going for a walk or run, laughing at your favorite comedy, treat yourself to a spa day, whatever works for you; just do something

understand that there will be stress involved and accept it, but don’t let it overtake you. nothing is perfect. ultimately, you are planning a wedding, a celebration of the love between you and your fiancée, but only one day out of many that you will spend with them. focus on the love between the two of you, work through the stress and have fun.

see ya tomorrow,
