We all know that weddings can get stressful. There is so much to get done and it never feels like there is enough time. But to help with that, here is a list of 5 easy tips to have a low stress wedding week.
Make a checklist of everything that has to get done and use that list to make smaller weekly or daily to do lists. Looking at the big list can be very overwhelming and can cause a lot of unneeded stress. When your big wedding list is broken down into smaller more manageable lists, the tasks become less overwhelming and bring positive feelings when you’re able to check them off.
Ask for help. Wedding week is not the time to learn to be a wedding planner. To lower your stress even more, look at you big list, and find which tasks can be delegated. See if a friend or family member is available to help the week of the wedding and take over those tasks. If you don’t have anyone to help you, break the list up between you and your fiancé. After all you will be each other’s forever team from the now on. Organizing and preparing for a wedding can be a lot to take on for one person and asking for help is an easy way cut down the work load.
Schedule time to relax. Whether its doing yoga or watching a movie or taking a walk, make sure you are making time to step away from your busy schedule. It’s far easier to get things done when you are feeling like your best self.
Make time for dates. Not only should you find time to relax, but you should find time to spend with each other. You’ll have a lifetime together, but these are your last few weeks as an unmarried couple. Not that anything will change besides your new titles, but it’s a little bit of a different feeling. Enjoy getting excited about your future together and do something together that isn’t all about planning a wedding.
Whenever you start to feel overwhelmed or stressed, take a deep breath and repeat your mantra to yourself. It can be anything that makes you feel better. Some examples could be, “Everything is going to be okay,” “It will all work the way it’s supposed to,” “This is all coming together,” “We got this.” Use this mantra throughout the entire week, giving yourself an easy way to ensure a low stress wedding week.
You got this! All the hard work of preparing and organizing will lead to the most amazing day of your life.
