There’s no other way to put this: Wedding planning is stressful. But while you can’t get rid of stress completely, you can keep it at a tolerable level. Here’s how you can slash out a huge chunk of stress in wedding planning:
1. Go to bridal fairs.
The most stressful parts of planning are settling on a wedding theme and concept and at the same time, finding vendors and comparing their prices. You can hit these two birds with one stone—wedding fair 2019. With an event dedicated solely for wedding planning, you’re able to get inspired by different ideas and talk to experts about their services. What’s more, you can meet other excited and equally stressed-out brides, in which you may find encouragement as well.
2. Get all the help you can get.
It’s not easy to let go of some control because you want to oversee everything, but it would be impractical and impossible to manage every little detail. You’ll end up feeling so burnt out you may not enjoy one of the biggest events in your life. So when people offer help, say, in flowers or entertainment, go grab it and let these reliable family and friends take the reins.
It’s worth noting that this applies to your partner too. Wedding planning should be a couple’s effort. Set and manage expectations from the beginning and practice being accountable to each other, checking on the status of tasks now and then.
3. Give yourself a break.
There’s so much to do with so little time, so why rest? That’s the thing; you won’t be able to handle so much in so little time—when you’re sick. Don’t exhaust yourself to the core. Your health is most crucial during this time. So, take a break once in a while. Have a date with your husband-to-be and make sure to avoid all wedding planning talk. Get a massage. Take yourself to the salon. Meditate.
