Yes, weddings are beautiful, and yes, they are fun. Nevertheless, the planning stage is a very stressful one, and no one really likes to talk about that. Many couples say that the stress of planning the wedding is on the level of moving houses, or having a child!
But there is no need to worry because there is a way to handle wedding planning stress, but only if you go into it completely prepared. We have prepared some tips and tricks that every couple needs to know in order to get through the wedding planning stage smoothly and painlessly.
Let’s be clear: you cannot do everything by yourself, which is why it is so important to delegate tasks to trustworthy people! The number of your family members and friends who would be more than willing to lend a helping hand will definitely surprise you! We do not suggest assigning everything over to your bridal party (especially the most important and crucial tasks), but we do recommend delegating the simpler tasks to them and asking for help when you need it.
Create a Clear To-do List
It is much easier to do you tasks when you actually know what your tasks are. A clear to-do list is going to make it easy to know what your next step is. The feeling of finishing a task and crossing it of the list is going to be so good!
Follow a Timeline
This is for all of the natural procrastinators out there, consider this a serious warning: leaving your tasks until the very last minute will likely leave you feeling anxious and stressed as the big day approaches, and it will bring on many negative emotions that you want to avoid on your wedding day.
Before you start wedding planning, make sure to create a clear wedding planning timeline that allows you to get everything ticked off at least three weeks out from the day, because the final weeks of your wedding should be restful, relaxing, and exciting.
