Planning a wedding ranks right up there among life’s most stressful undertakings. But it doesn’t have to be. Here are some tips on how to keep calm and carry on towards the wedding day of your dreams.
Get organized: Create a check-list of important details and keep all your wedding-related documents in one file for easy access; keep a timeline to stay on track of tasks.
Delegate the details: Accept help whenever possible; use your wedding party to divide and conquer simple tasks, such as addressing envelopes or creating place cards.
Have a backup plan: That way, even a wedding day storm won’t throw you for a loop.
Talk it out: We all need to vent sometimes. Air your wedding-related frustrations with a trusted friend or your fiancé.
Nurture yourself: Book regular massages, meditate or find other ways to clear your head; sleep is essential too and when all else fails, remember to keep breathing.
Schedule date nights: It’s easy to feel disconnected from the one you love when you’re under wedding planning pressure, so make couple time a priority.
Get moving: Exercise is proven to have positive psychological effects and helps produce stress-stabilizing endorphins.
