Planning a wedding can be stressful, but getting overwhelmed by it is no means a requirement. When you’re getting ready for your big day, don’t let planning the event get in the way of enjoying yourself. Planning a wedding should be an exhilarating experience that you take with you for a long time. There is so much to be done in order to plan a wedding that it’s easy to forget the purpose of what you’re doing. Here are some simple tips that can help you stay on track remember the reason you are planning the event in the first place.
Remember to have your dress altered a week before your wedding. The purpose of having your dress altered a week before the big day is to ensure that it will fit like a glove. If you wait more than a week you will spread yourself too thin, and if you wait more than a week than you may risk your dress not fitting due to weight gain or loss.
Never feel like you are “putting someone out” during your wedding planning. People love weddings, and they love being a part of the planning process. If anything, you’ll be doing them a favor by inviting them to help you plan your wedding. Take full advantage of this and enlist as much help as you need. This is the one time in your life where people will be more than willing to do whatever you want! While this is “your” day, it is also your groom’s day, your parent’s day, and everyone who loves and cares about you will be delighted to help share in the experience.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
When you obsess over the miniscule details you are setting yourself up to be stressed out. If you hired a wedding planner, let them take care of the small stuff. If a wedding planner wasn’t a part of your budget, allow your friends and family members to take care of the little details that you just don’t have time to attend to. This will allow you to stay focused on the big picture and remember why you are tying the knot in the first place.
Reduce the amount of stress you incur by choosing the right wedding dress. Picking the right dress designer can significantly reduce the amount of things that you have to worry about on your wedding day. Make sure you find a reputable designer that you can trust to handle your custom wedding dress.
Imperfections are Okay
Sometimes the imperfections of your wedding are what will make is the most memorable. Don’t freak out if something goes wrong or if everything doesn’t go 100% according to plan. Little snafu’s will only make the experience more real, and people like real. Instead of taking mistakes to heart, smile and move on while keeping in mind the reason you are celebrating.
Most importantly, remember to take a step back from time to time and take in the experience. It’s easy to get caught up in the planning process and forget to make valuable memories out of it. Whenever you can, take a moment to sit back and enjoy your wedding.
