Wedding Planning Tips: 4 Proven Ways to Be Stress Free

Planning your wedding will be one of the most memorable experiences in your life. There’s nothing more thrilling than seeing your vision come to life. To ensure that you enjoy every step of the way, you’ll want to hold on to these 4 crucial wedding planning tips. Remember these things, and no one will ever call you bridezilla. Promise.

Don’t take on too much too fast.

At the very beginning, craft a logical wedding planning schedule, and take everything one step at a time. With other life commitments and responsibilities, create a realistic scope of what you can do and in what timeframe. For example, hold off on hiring vendors until you have solidified your wedding date and don’t book bridesmaids dresses before you find your wedding gown. Keep the order!

Trim your guest list.

If you find that you need more wiggle room in your wedding budget, the easiest thing to do is cut that guest list and avoid stressing about money. At the end of the day, food and drink expenses eat up about 50% of your wedding day costs. You can save a substantial amount by eliminating just one table of people!

Organize and focus.

This is definitely the time to lean on your type A tendencies, if possible. I strongly recommend that you set up a separate email address just for wedding planning. Collect, in a folder or binder, all of your correspondences with vendors and all your inspirational ideas for decor and style.

Keep your eye on the day after the wedding.

It’s easy to get caught up in all the wedding details (the dress, the hair, the decorations, and so on). At the core of all that you are doing, remember why you are even planning this shindig in the first place. Keep sight of the day after the wedding when all the hype is long gone …. when it’s just you and him. Do this, and every minor hiccup that may occur as you plan your wedding will seem small and trivial.

Ok, now that we’ve gotten those things out of the way, move on down the page for some fabulous inspiration!
