Planning a wedding can be very stressful because there are so many details to worry about. However, planning a wedding does not have to be stressful if you follow these simple tips.
1. Keep It Simple
When it comes to the rehearsal dinner, make it simple, do not try planning a whole another wedding. Try serving your guests cocktails and appetizers or if you want to do an actual dinner try having a barbecue or doing a simple buffet layout.
2. Stay Organized
There are so many details when it comes to planning a wedding, that it can become very overwhelming. Trying to remember every little detail, such as flowers, food, DJ, expenses, and timelines, just to name a few, will be impossible. Stay organized and don't forget a thing by downloading apps on your phone or printable spreadsheets.
3. Don't Take on More Than You Can Handle
Your only job when it comes to your wedding is to be the bride. Yes, you choose your flowers, and your colors, and the food you want, but that's it. When hiring companies to take care of these things, interview them really well. A great catering company or floral company will know all the other details to fill in and how everything is suppose to be setup the day of the wedding. you should not have to be your own caterer or florist. You need to focus on you.
4. Point of Contact
On your big day, you will have enough nerves driving you crazy, that you do not need any more stress to add to it. You will need to be focusing on you, and getting ready, and doing photos, that will already be keeping you busy. Try eliminating wedding day stress by choosing someone you trust, as your point of contact. If something comes up they can be the one to make last minute decisions if there needs to be any changes or if there are any misunderstanding.
