Wedding planning comes with loads of expenses, activities that must be done, plans that must be executed and decisions that must be made.
Planning a wedding involves stress and challenges. A bride gets bogged down with the planning that it might have effect on her wedding day.
This shouldn’t be the case. As stressful as wedding planning can be, there are tips that help you overcome the stress of planning your wedding and make you healthy and fit for your special day.
One key way to reduce the stress of planning is to make a list of your planned activities and monitor the progress of what has to be done at different point in time.
There are lots of things that need to be done and details that must not be forgotten or left for another day. Get organized by making a list of your activities so that nothing is left out.
Don’t Do Everything
As much as you want your wedding to be perfect and to go the way you’ve envisaged, know that you’re the bride and not the wedding vendors.
Interview the florist, DJ, caterer and get references to be sure that they are reliable. Hire, delegate duties and communicate effectively to monitor their activities.
Share Your Problems With Your Loved Ones
When you feel depressed and confused, share your problem with a close friend or family member. Sharing your problem to someone will make a whole lot of difference. Remember a problem shared is a problem solved!
Take a Break
Wedding planning consumes a lot of time that you might not get the period to relax and do something different.
Try to allocate period to have a life outside the wedding. Watch a movie with a couple of friends or take a walk at night.
Have Enough Sleep
You need to have good sleep to look revived and amazing on your wedding day. Make sure you do not trade with your sleep time.
When its bed time, do away with your phone and all form of distractions, take the worries away, have a cold shower and try to at least six hours of sleep.
