Wedding Tip Wednesday: Stop the Wedding Overwhelm. Take a Wedding Planning Breather: Stop and Smell the Roses

Wedding Tip Wednesday

Stop the Wedding Overwhelm. Take a wedding planning breather: Stop and smell the Roses.


They say the 3 most stressful times in a person's life are: getting married, buying a house, and having a baby. All 3 of which are also pretty amazing and special things. Sometimes though, the stress and activities associated with all 3 can be pretty overwhelming.

Our specialty is weddings and time and time again, we've heard stories of couples who are so stressed about their wedding day that they have bad dreams about it or that they're having large disagreements with family members or their partner over the wedding arrangements.  It's really sad that during one of the most exciting times of your life that you can also feel so frazzled.

Today's wedding tip is a reminder to "Stop and Smell the Roses"! When things get overwhelming while you are planning your wedding, take a break! Take a walk with your loved one, grab some ice cream, go to the park, and remember why you both fell in love in the first place. The connection you both have and the lifetime commitment to each other is the real reason you're getting married. 

While "Smelling the Roses" and enjoying life, be sure to be good to yourself. Make sure that you're eating well, still catching up with friends, or enjoying some of your favorite hobbies. I promise that it will make you feel so much better and in control of what's happening in during this busy time. Once you feel refreshed and ready to tackle the next task during your planning, you can return to it. Taking a breather every once in a while and taking care of "you" is so important for your soul, your health, and your sanity. And it'll help keep the overwhelm under control during your wedding planning! :-)

I hope you found this week's tip helpful as you plan your big day! Stay tuned for next week's Wedding Tip Wednesday!
