Let’s talk about what to do when wedding planning gets stressful, because let’s face it… even though it’s going to be the best day ever, planning is not an easy task.

First, I want you take a deep breath. Your wedding is going to be beautiful. It’s going to be amazing, everyone is going to have a great time celebrating with you and you’ll remember it forever.

Next, I want you to take a moment and think about what it would be like if you had a start a new job tomorrow, in a totally new field/industry that you have absolutely zero training in. You’d be a little anxious, right? Now what if your boss was a total nightmare and had unrealistic expectations of you in your first day? 

Crazy, right? Well, that’s kind of what wedding planning is like: it’s a job most couples have never done before, and yet, they have high expectations of themselves and get so stressed about making the day perfect. Some brides and grooms have been dreaming of their perfect wedding from a young age. There is no doubt that it is an exciting and life changing event. But, a wedding is more than a celebration of your nuptials with your closest friends. It is when you and your partner begin your marriage. It’s only fair that your wedding day be everything you hoped it would be.

However, the task of planning a flawless wedding comes with mountains of stress and conflict. Not only are you trying to make your dream wedding come true on a budget, but you must also work to represent your partner’s dream wedding. It’s no easy task, that’s for sure!

Here at Contagious Events, we believe that planning a wedding should be a happy time for you and your fiancé. That’s why we have put together a few ways to stay calm when planning your own wedding.

What to do when wedding planning gets stressful:

Get an Early Start.
Could you imagine how stressful it would be if you only had a few months to plan your wedding? Not only would you risk the availability of your preferred vendors, but you would be planning an entire event with very little time. Be sure to get an early start so that you will have plenty of time to plan the perfect day, and make any necessary tweaks before your big day arrives.

Organization Is Crucial.
Being unorganized can be detrimental to anything, especially planning a huge event. You can save yourself numerous headaches by staying organized. Keeping a wedding journal can help greatly! You can jot down notes, keep samples, and create a timeline, to ensure that your planning flows with ease, and that no detail is missed.

Stick to The Budget You Created.
Your budget will ensure that you create your dream wedding and start off your marriage debt free. Money is one of the main dilemmas that married couples quarrel over. You don’t have to begin your marriage on the wrong foot when you stick to the wedding budget that you created. Just ensure that you leave yourself a little extra wriggle room for each detail within your budget, as some costs can be unexpected.

Allow the Professionals to Help.
Planning a wedding on your own is difficult. You and your partner should be enjoying your engagement. You can take some of the weight off of your shoulders when you hire a wedding planner. They know the ins and outs of wedding planning and are more likely to get you the best deals for your special day.
