A wedding is supposed to be the happiest time of your life. Yet planning a wedding is a stressful and overwhelming task that every couple faces when they are knee deep in their wedding planning process. Planning a wedding is like working a second job, stress is inevitable. Though you can’t eliminate all the stress that comes along as part of a wedding-planning-process, there are efficient ways in which you can minimize that stress.
The best way you can manage stress during your wedding is by knowing what you are capable of handling. Prepare a list of all the tasks on your plate. The list should also include your daily responsibilities, along with all of those wedding planning to-dos. Go through the list and critically think of what you can handle and what you can’t. Involve your family and friends and let them help you with some of your wedding related tasks. Remember, you have only so many hours in a day, you cannot be at multiple places at the same time and you cannot handle everything on your own.

Getting married can stir up lots of emotions, such as unresolved emotions about parents and family, concerns about the person you are about to marry. These are common emotions that a bride goes through. The key is embracing the fact that you are embarking on a journey of evolution from one part of life to another. Take these emotions as natural and seek help if feeling overwhelmed from friends and family. Yoga and exercise have also proven to reduce stress and anxiety.
DON’T FALL FOR PERFECTION
Many couples who are about to get married believe that their wedding has to be perfect in order to have a perfect marriage and a perfect life. Though it is perfectly okay to be temporarily obsessed about the perfect wedding, it’s not the end of the world. You should remember that the most important thing is not the details around you but the fact that you walked down the aisle and into the arms of the person you love. Focus on the journey you are embarking on and the stories you and your life partner will build for years to come.
