Chill More When Planning Your Wedding

Isn't it better to enjoy the journey than just look forward to the destination? When planning your wedding, make it an enjoyable experience. It may seem like a lot of work, but isn't the end result worth it?

Take time to relax, laugh, and take it easy. Follow these easy tips to make your wedding experience a great one!

1.It doesn't have to be perfect! Things may go wrong along the planning way or there may be glitches but that can lead you to something better if you let it. Be flexible and take a deep breath then forge ahead and find a solution.

2.Keep a wedding notebook. Keep track of your wedding planning adventures. Someday you will look back and laugh at all the little things that happened along the way. Journal your feelings and experience at the end of each day. Add some photos for a pre wedding scrapbook.

3.Plan ahead so you have plenty of breathing room! Keep a planner at your disposal. No matter if you have 6 months, 2 months, or 3 weeks to plan. Plan your days so that you don't feel rushed in the process of putting together your wedding. You want to enjoy the week before your wedding and planning ahead is key to your success and your sanity! Stay on top of your wedding game plan!

4.Take time for yourself! Don't spend all your time before your wedding in planning, shopping, and worrying about the wedding! Do some things you enjoy! Take time to stop and smell the flowers! Take your mom and grandma to lunch!

5.Use your sense of humor! When tension or stress starts to build, try and find something funny about the situation. This will help take the edge off and you'll feel much better about things.

6.Relax! Find ways to relax! Turn on your favorite tunes and soak in a bubble bath. Whatever helps you unwind and rejuvenate...take time to pamper yourself once in awhile! You're worth it!

7. Pace yourself! Trying to do everything at once is very overwhelming. Plan well and space things out. Learn to delegate if you need to . Enlist the help of family and friends in getting your wedding to do list done!

8.Go With The Flow. If you have to turn down an invitation or two once in awhile, only take on things that you can handle right now. Don't over schedule yourself and learn to say no if you need to. Right now focus on the things that are most important to you in your life at this time.

9. Exercise and stay healthy! Find time to exercise! It is very important to your over all well being! Get plenty of rest and eat healthy! Reward your efforts by splurging once in awhile with a special sweet treat.

10.Enjoy the journey! It's possible you know to enjoy the process of planning your wedding. Hopefully it is a once in a lifetime event for you and you want to capture the essence of this special moment. Life passes so quickly! Enjoy this time so you don't look back with regret that you didn't laugh more and worry less about the whole wedding thing.
