5 Tips for Stress-Free Wedding Planning


Is there anything more stressful than planning your own wedding? If you are right in the middle of all the organisation right now, then I’m sure you will agree that it can be very difficult being a bride-to-be. That’s no reason to turn into a dreaded bridezilla though. So here are some ways you can reduce your stress, and ensure that you don’t snap anyone’s head off in the process!

Give Yourself Plenty of Time
First of all, it’s always a good idea to give yourself plenty of time to plan the wedding in the first place. If you leave things until the very last minute, then you will only end up feeling very rushed and under pressure. Ideally, you need to start planning the big day at least six months in advance, although many couples like to start a year or so before their wedding. Just remember that the longer you spend planning the better your wedding will be.

Consider Hiring a Wedding Planner
You don’t have to plan every part of your wedding all on your own. If you are busy trying to juggle your wedding planning alongside a full-time job, then it could be worth hiring a wedding planner. They can take care of some of the big jobs such as liaising with the venue, and organising caterers. When you are looking for a wedding planner, it’s worth taking a look at a couple of different people. Ask for quotes and to see their portfolios. This can give you an idea of who can help you create your dream day for the best-possible price.

Ask Close Relatives and Friends for Help
It’s also worth asking your relatives and friends if they can help you with certain jobs too. You might want them to check out wedding bands such as The Smooth Criminals, and come up with a shortlist for you to check out. They can also help you find a designer for your invitations as well as a photographer. If one of your family or a friend is a keen baker, then you could even ask them to make your wedding cake.

Understand that Things Might go Wrong
You are only human, and you will only have a certain amount of control over certain aspects of your wedding. Unfortunately things could go wrong, but that shouldn’t be something that gets you down. It’s always good to always have a plan B in place so that you always have something to fall back on. And remember that you will be marrying the love of your life, regardless of any problems!

Take a Break from Planning
If you feel like things are starting to get on top of you, and that your stress levels are creeping up, then take a break! Don’t worry if you do forget about your planning for a few days. You’ll always be able to pick it up again from where you left off, and you will feel a lot more relaxed and refreshed as a result.
