There are few things in life that couples look towards with both anticipation and trepidation than weddings. Many people say that only the bride will be worried, but in reality there is some truth that both parties are victim to the fears and stresses of weddings. However, there is a way to get around this fear and that is to relax.
Relaxing and planning ahead can make this occasion much more enjoyable for all parties involved in the process. No one remembers that the napkins were not placed just right, or that the flowers were a slightly different hue than the cake. What people remember is that the bride looked beautiful and everyone looked happy. And I don’t care who the bride is, all brides look beautiful no matter what. Trust me. Weddings bring out the natural beauty in everyone.
So what you need to do is stop stressing. Now to avoid the stress in the first place, potential brides and grooms should plan, plan, and plan some more. Bookstores and wedding stores all carry wedding planners. Find one with a to do list checklist and follow it carefully. In fact, feel free to work ahead on it. Working as a wedding planner, I always told the brides it is never too early to start planning.
If all this seems too much too handle, than hire a wedding planner. Wedding planners generally offer a pyramid of packages that fit every person’s needs and financial abilities. If a wedding planner, is not in the budget then hire a staff. Now when I say staff, I don’t really mean go hire people to work for you. I mean enlist your wedding party. The people in your wedding party should be people who are your closest friends, family, and confidantes. If they are not willing to help you when you are starting to get overwhelmed, then they probably shouldn’t be there (this does not apply to those in extenuating circumstance like a bridesmaid that just had twins, give them a break). In the end, just be happy or you will regret it.
