Manage Wedding-Planning Stress
The days leading up to your wedding day must definitely be one of the most stress-inducing days…ever.

So before you start going nuts over the wedding shenanigans, take a moment to breathe and think about the journey you should be enjoying instead. If you’re already staying up all night and losing sleep over your wedding checklist and whatnot, then this is an alarming sign that enough is enough. We’re not saying you shouldn’t care about the most important day of your life, but there are ways that the whole process can be ultimately stress-free. Scroll down to find out more!
- News Flash: when the wedding planning stops being fun, that’s when you should start being concerned. We know, wedding planning already takes up half of your time, but remember that you still have your job, your friends, your family…heck a life. So breathe and prioritize the essentials and make a checklist organized by order of importance. That way, you’ll have a clear conscience.
- It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you have countless tasks to do before the big day. That’s why relying on your family and friends isn’t such a bad idea, after all and that’s why having a maid of honor is so important. We have one word for you, delegate. Pass on the tasks you’re most confident your family and friends can do for you and leave the important ones for yourself. And hey, don’t forget about your other half in the whole process, not only does he have a – albeit minor – say, but he can also lend you a hand when needed.
- Speaking of, don’t lose touch with the groom-to-be. Always schedule date nights amidst all the mayhem and make sure to squeeze in some time alone for the both of you. You’ll come to see that you both are in this together and getting through the tough times together is way better.
- Put your physical and mental health first. Take care of yourself. Allot some quality time for yourself and pick the exercise of your choice to help you manage the stress – it can be anything from walking to running or doing yoga.
- Lastly, it’s not a bad idea to pamper yourself with a massage or spa day from time to time. It will relieve you from the stress and bodes well for your mood.
