We know everyone is beyond excited for their wedding, but sometimes the overload of planning & organizing can be completely overwhelming! Everyone wants their wedding day to be special and unforgettable, but we tend to bombard ourselves with small details or end up juggling too many tasks at once. Here are a few things that you can do throughout the wedding planning process to give yourself a little break and help reduce some of your planning stress!
Practice Self Care
Self care is important for everyone, especially when you are going through the process of planning a wedding. While you are in the process of planning, you have to make sure you're taking some time to take care of yourself! Some ways you can do this is by:
Setting a Healthy Sleep Schedule
A persistent sleep schedule can positively affect you more than you think. Getting a good night's rest by consistently going to bed and waking up at the same time daily might help boost your energy and help you feel ready to conquer the day.
Making Time for an Activity You Love
Doing an activity you love everyday can improve your day drastically. Whether this is taking a bike ride, reading your favorite book, watching your favorite show, getting your nails done or whatever else you love to do by yourself or with some friends. This will improve your day and give you that precious time you need for yourself to forget about all of that planning for a little.
Use Organized To-Do Lists & Timelines
One of the many benefits of to-do lists and timelines is that you have all
of your tasks and due dates right in your notes app on your phone or written down in your favorite notebook. Timelines and checklists will ensure that you are not leaving tasks until the last minute and that no obligation goes unfulfilled.
Stick to a Budget and Prioritizing
Sticking to a budget that you and your significant other can handle will set the expectations you both have from the beginning. Prioritizing your most important wishes for your wedding could be essential to the process. Writing down your "must haves" for the wedding and focusing more on those than the little things that aren't as important to you as a couple can help reduce stress and avoid arguments.
