Your wedding is possibly one of the more significant days in your life, but sometimes it becomes a challenge to manage your wedding stress!
The wedding planning process can be enjoyable or stressful, depending on a couple of factors. Read the three tips by bridal experts on how you can manage your wedding stress so that you are a step closer to a wonderful experience.
Manage Your Wedding Stress #1 – Have Important Conversations
It’s only natural that there are differing opinions when it comes to the wedding gown, wedding photographer, venue, budget and more!
During the decision making processes, you might find that you’re at loggerheads with one another. This is worsened if:
- You and your hubby haven’t had the chance to decide on your priorities beforehand. If you’re working on a budget, you wouldn’t be able to splurge on every single item. You might go for a top-notch wedding photographer, but spend less on wedding decor. Working out your priorities beforehand would ensure that both of you are on the same page on what to splurge on!
- You want to please others. One of the important questions to ask yourself before to get that particular wedding gown is this: are you choosing the wedding gown for yourself or others? If you’re planning a wedding for others, it’s going to result in you feeling distressed. Remember that your wedding is to celebrate your union – it’s for you! So as much as you can, make wedding planning related decisions for you and your hubby.
To minimise quarrels with one another, have these important discussions about priorities and budget as early as you can.
Manage Your Wedding Stress #2 – Have Fun Day-Outs!
You might have heard – a wedding is not just a union of two people, but it’s a union of two families. Your wedding day is an important day for your parents and relatives, and your hubby’s as well! Their well-meaning efforts to give advice and run errands might add to your wedding stress. Don’t be too quick to shun away from it – conflicts can also be an opportunity for both parties to know one another better!
Throughout your wedding planning, schedule time to meet his family and for him to meet yours. Plan family day-outs like cycling at East Coast Park, going for a seafood dinner or watching a movie together… the point is to do activities and have conversations that are not wedding-centric. This way, you also get to cultivate deeper relationships with one another’s families. Fun day-outs like these are also helpful in relieving wedding stress!
Manage Your Wedding Stress #3 – Have The Right Perspective
In the midst of all that wedding stress, it is easy to forget the wonderfulness of the marriage itself! While finding the perfect wedding dress, taking the best wedding photos and more are important, but it isn’t everything.
One crucial perspective to have is that the wedding itself is a celebration of the marriage. The wedding planning is a process for you to get to know your hubby even more and to learn the handles of conflicts management and communication. While they don’t sound as sexy, these practical handles you learn can strengthen your marriage more than any wedding can.
It can be tough to think these through when you’re stressed and overwhelmed! The good news is that you’re not alone in this. Beside you, you’ve got your better half. Around you, you’ve got family and friends who love you. Ahead of you, you’ve got your professional vendors.
