Top tips for fighting bridal stress
Your wedding will be the best day of your life! it will also be one of the most expensive and come after months or even years of stress filled decision making, plan changes, and at least a couple of arguments. Yes, planning a wedding is far from child’s play, and while there’s no way to beat the stress completely, after all nothing worth doing is ever smooth sailing, there are ways to minimise the pressure on you and your partner leading up to that trip down the aisle.
Don’t Forget To Date
Yes, you’ll have the rest of your lives to gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes while sharing a dessert at some romantic bistro, but there’s no time like the present. If you’re spending every waking moment bickering over the colour of the table runners then the best way to unwind is to get dressed up and spend an evening reminding yourselves what it is you love about each other.
Make Time For Friends
There’s a pressure to appear constantly loved up and joined at the hip with your partner in the run up to your nuptials, but there is such a thing as too much togetherness. Plan a day out with your friends and give yourself some time to actually miss your partner!
Wedding Free Weekend
Weddings take up so much of our time that every now and then we all need a little breathing room. A full 48 hours without a single mention of party favours, menus, dresses or flowers might be exactly what you need to reset your wedding excitement.
Have a Plan B
Two words: be flexible. If you place all of your energy into making sure everything is perfect then the tiniest detail going wrong can make you feel like the whole wedding is derailing, so don’t sweat the small stuff. Remember – when all is said and done it’s not the colour of the flowers that will make the day so special.
Think To The Future
If there’s one thing to keep in mind when planning a wedding it’s this: your wedding is just one day, and when it’s over you have the rest of your life to spend with the one you love.
