5 tips to reduce the stress of wedding planning
Planning your big wedding is bringing stress in your couple make you loose sleep? Fear not! We have some tips for you.
1. Reduce your guest list
Inviting so and so because you’re inviting so and so, is a very bad idea. On the day, you’ll want to relax and take time to have a conversation with your guests. If there are too many people, you won’t be able to. Invite your close friends and family and don’t worry about the ones you won’t invite, they won’t mind…
2. Hire good vendors
Choose your vendors carefully: spend a bit of time to look for the perfect vendors that speaks to you. Take time to meet them if you can, or speak with them directly to make sure they are on the same page. Usually, the more info you give about what you want for the wedding, the better. They will be here for you, and to make sure you’re having a good time
It brings us to the ‘delegate!’ tip! Trust your vendors. You have hired them because they know what they are doing. Trust your family and friends to help you out. They will feel rewarded to be helping you out for your wedding! It’s an honour!
4. Set a budget
Make sure you set a realistic budget that you can keep to. Financial stress can be a tricky one to avoid, so make sure you and your partner have a set budget; and that you have realistic goals matching this budget. Again, talk to your vendors, making sure you are on budget.
5. On the day, let yourself relax
Remember: your wedding day is YOUR day. Yours and your partner. Not Uncle John’s and his wife. You are getting hitched to celebrate the love you have, not to show off how awesome your event planning skills are. Take time to have a moment for yourself in the morning, to pamper, to unwind and to re-center.
