How Do You Avoid the Pressure from Wedding Planning?

Nov 9, 2007
There is no doubt that wedding should be one of the most important events in your life. In fact it should be as important as your birth. After the wedding you will start a new life. Understanding the importance of wedding, you, as well as all other couples, will most probably want to make the wedding as unique as possible. To this end a good planning will be very essential. You need to plan for all different items and details for your big day. You will also need to plan for the honeymoon.

Although most couples will agree that planning for a wedding is, and should be, full of fun, you still need to face a lot of pressure and stress. It is especially true when some of your ideas are different from that of your parents. And they will certainly give you a lot of "advices" which are conflicting with what you have in your mind. Some couples will lose their temper when facing these pressures. In a more extreme case, a couple may even make a decision that they will not get married. I am sure that this should be a rare case and most of us will still decide to have the dreamed wedding come true. So, how can you avoid the stress and pressure during the process of wedding planning?

As advised by most wedding planners, you have to start to plan for your big day as early as possible. You have to make sure that you can have plenty of time to plan for every item in your wedding. You may even need to allow extra time in case that there is something wrong with a particular item. For example, if it takes three weeks to print the wedding invitations, you should order them six weeks before you send them out. In case there are defects on the wedding cards, you will have enough time to have a second run. This is very important since you will only have your wedding once in your life. You should try to make sure that everything should be as perfect as possible. And the key is always having enough and even extra time.

Besides, you have to organize your planning well from the first day you start your wedding planning. You should always file the findings of all your researches in appropriate places. If you are using a computer to handle the researches, you should put the findings in different folders, according to the category of items. You will also need a checklist and a time table in order to get everything organized. What is good about a checklist is that you can easily know what tasks have not been completed. The schedule and time table is also very important. You will need to push to work faster when you are behind your schedule.

As discussed at the beginning, planning for your wedding should be full of fun. You should try not to lose your temper even when you are facing very great pressure. You have to always keep your mind peaceful and only by doing that you can solve the problems you are going to face easily. In this way you will find your wedding planning less stressful.
