Getting married is one event in your life where you want to have everything just right. There’s a lot of planning and work that go into making a wedding successful and it can seem overwhelming at times to get everything done in time. Because your wedding is such a special part of your life and you don’t want to ruin it with stress, there are some things you can learn from those who have already gone through it. Let me share a few tips to help you manage wedding stress:
- The first thing to remember is that you really don’t have to make everything perfect. A wedding can be an amazing occasion for you, and everyone attending, without going overboard. You’ve heard the saying that less is more and with a wedding this can be true because a wedding is really all about you and your husband or wife uniting.
- The next thing to realize is that you are not alone. It’s very likely that you have family and/or friends to help you get things done. It might seem strange to some people, but asking for help is really not strange at all, even for a wedding. This doesn’t mean you can or should ask people to take on the bulk of the tasks that need to be done (unless they offer…), but instead you should get as many people involved and give each one a simple task to complete. The combined efforts of multiple people doing small tasks will add up and things will get done.
- Some of the stress that comes from getting married falls upon the bride who is concerned that her wedding invitations, dress, or ceremony will not be unique enough. This can create a lot of stress and it is also important to just be yourself and remember the real purpose for the ceremony.
- The last piece of advice I would give to you is to plan well in advance for things that need time to prepare. Some of these include reserving the location of your wedding, finding an amazing wedding photographer, and picking the colors of your wedding (so everything else being prepared can match those colors). Planning well in advance for certain things is important, and once you have done those things your stress level will go way down because you’ll know that you’ve already taken care of them!
If you take anything away from this article just remember what a wedding is all about and that all the other things that ‘have’ to be done are just supporting features, but aren’t really that important. What is important is that you are marrying the one you love and want to be with forever. Once you have this, everything else will just happen the way it should.
