The Do’s and Don’ts of Planning a Low Stress Wedding

Plan The Low Stress Wedding Of Your Dreams

Have you had a picture of your wedding in your mind since you were little? Now that you’re engaged, it’s time to make that happen. But you’ve heard enough about bridezillas to know you don’t want to be one. In fact, you want your wedding to be as low stress as possible. You can still have the event you want without the stress that so often comes along with it. Here are some dos and don’ts of low stress wedding planning.

Do Delegate

There are going to be a lot of people surrounding you that want to help in any way they can—let them. If you’re having a destination wedding, you’re going to delegate the most to the on-site wedding planner. They can implement your plan since they are right there, on location, able to handle everything in person. But the other people in your wedding party are capable of helping with things as well. The more you delegate, the less stress you have on yourself.

Don’t Go All Out

It’s your wedding and you deserve to have all the perks and frills you want, but be specific about the details that really matter and let the rest fall into place on its own. Remember that this is just one day, while your marriage will last for years into the future. You don’t have to fit in all of the traditions that most people include in a wedding, if you don’t want to. Keep things on a simple level to avoid unnecessary stress.

Do Choose Comfortable Attire

You want the perfect dress, shoes, and other details so you look your best, however, you also need to be comfortable. There’s no way to avoid stress when your feet hurt, your dress is too tight, and your hair pins won’t stay in place. Try everything on and wear it around for a while to make sure it’s going to be comfortable for the long haul.

Don’t Plan To Be ‘On’ At All Times

You’re going to be the center of attention during your wedding, there’s no way around it. You might feel like you have to be all smiles the entire event. Try to schedule some time behind the scenes when you can enjoy a few moments alone with your new spouse and take a deep breath. Perhaps if you take pictures before the event, have a few minutes with your fiancé to see one another. If you’re taking a traditional approach and seeing each other down the aisle for the first time, after you say your vows, get some space from the guests for a moment of two once you leave as a married couple.

Do Enjoy Yourself

Many couples reflect back on the wedding to describe it as a complete “blur”. You may be worried about everyone else and how much they are enjoying themselves, but you need to take time to enjoy things yourself. Eat any food you’ve ordered, especially the cake!  It’s your wedding day, and you deserve to enjoy all of your hard work and planning.
