When planning a wedding the bride and groom to be are not the only two excited folk. Well-wishing friends and especially the parents of the bride and groom tend to get overly involved and will eventually force the course of the initial plan resulting in an entirely different version of the wedding the couple envisioned.
Pressure builds up around planning the most memorable day of your life and it slowly loses control and turns into a nightmare.
Here are a few helpful tips to take back control of the situation.
Plan Within Your Comfort Zone
When planning your wedding keep in mind that everything that happens on your special day holds the greatest significance to you and your husband to be. It is a day which celebrates your love for one another. Keeping that in mind, begin to plan your day and bear in mind that’s it only yours and your partner’s ideas that really matter.
If you come across the innumerable options available and you are not able to make up your mind, talk to a few wedding planners for more original ideas. Always remember that you can hand it over to them if the wedding planning is more stressful than you can handle.
Since your friends and family have shown a keen interest to actively assist you in getting things ready for your big day, start to delegate more. Invite your friends to cake tastings and dress fittings with you. They would probably be able to take the edge off the pressure you have been feeling. Let them handle taking the car to a car polish services and ensure that those things are being taken care of for your big day.
Run ideas by your parents, listen to their opinions but remember you do not have to take their advice if it goes against your better judgment. Discuss your ideas with wedding planners and get their input on how you can turn a formal traditional wedding into a more fresh and exotic ceremony.
Do not try to scrutinize and have an opinion on everything that friends and family are doing for you. This will not help you to relax but instead stress more.
