Learn to say no
Planning a wedding is exciting and fun but it can also be one of the busiest times of your life. If you don’t want to end up being a nervous wreck, learn to prioritize. Say no to any new commitments that would take away from other important wedding-related tasks. It’s really ok to say no every now and then.
Become the queen of organization
The more organized you are, the better your wedding planning experience will be. Keep a digital copy of all of your important documents, contracts, and information in one file on your computer. If you want to be able to bring documents along to meetings, you can always create a wedding binder. Plus it makes for a great backup copy too.
Have a little fun
There’s no need for you to be a frazzled bride. Take out your calendar and schedule a few fun days in-between all of your planning. Make fun and laughter a priority in the weeks leading up to your wedding. Sometimes it’s important to remember why you’re choosing to marry your partner. Trying to control every single aspect of your day is only going to leave you wishing it was over. Go out and enjoy an afternoon with the girls where you don’t talk about the wedding at all.
Move your body
Exercise does wonders when you’ve got a lot on your plate. This doesn’t mean that you need to schedule an hour at the gym every day either. A simple 15-20 minute walk or yoga session will make all the difference to your stress and energy levels.
Take a complete timeout from wedding planning as often as you need to. Every bride deserves a relaxing soak in the tub or a heavenly hot stone massage. It can be difficult to make time to simply relax but do your best to find the time.
