But it doesn’t have to be a worrying time. In fact, here are some ways you can take the stress out of your big day.
Invite fewer guests to the wedding
Ensuring everything goes to plan for the guests is probably one of the most stressful parts of planning your wedding. After all, you want to make sure they all get from the ceremony to the reception safely. And then you need to ensure they have plenty of food and have a great time during the wedding. But if you have lots of guests coming to your big day, it can be hard to get on top of sorting everything out for them all. Therefore, if you want to take the stress out of your wedding, you should consider inviting fewer guests for the big wedding. After all, with less people to worry about, it can be a lot easier to sort out your wedding. And planning can run a lot more smoothly with a smaller guest list. On top of the fact you can also save some money too which is always handy when planning your wedding!
Hire a planner to help organize the day
While there will be a lot of people willing to help when it comes to wedding planning, a lot of the responsibility can lie on you and your other half. And it can make the time before your big day strained. In fact, you and your husband can end up arguing! But rather than letting the stress overwhelm you both, you should consider getting some professional help. After all, a wedding planner can take over the most challenging of jobs to ease some of the pressure. And they can keep in regular touch with all the suppliers to make sure everything is going to plan. Additionally, they will only work with ones they trust, so you don’t have to worry about suppliers pulling out last minute! And even without a planner, you can work alongside your wedding co-ordinator at the venue. After all, they can sort out everything their end to ease some of the pressure on you.
Don’t let planning overwhelm your life
To ensure you take some of the stress out of your big day, you need to remember that the wedding is only one day. A lot of people let it take over their life and make every single spare moment they have about the wedding. But then it can become overwhelming and turn into a stressful experience. Therefore, you need to make sure you are not letting the wedding rule your life. Of course, you need to spend time planning your day. But also make sure you are still going out with friends and family, and spending time with your partner which is not wedding related!
And remember to start planning as early as possible. That way, you won’t be rushing around trying to get everything done in just 6 months!
