Five Ways to Prevent Anxiety During Wedding Planning

Five Ways to Prevent Anxiety During Wedding Planning

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life.  Because of all that goes in to wedding planning, it’s natural to experience some stress; however, if a case of nervous jitters turns into full-blown anxiety, you need to take a step back and make some adjustments.  This is especially true if you are prone to getting anxious in challenging situations. 

Keep things in perspective. 

Your wedding day is very special, but you have to remember that it’s just one day.  When you find your wedding planning making you anxious, stop for a minute, relax, and think about what this day represents.  It marks the beginning of your life with the person you love.  Think about your relationship, the special times you’ve shared, and your dreams for the future.

Eat properly, get enough sleep, and exercise regularly.

There’s nothing wrong with losing a few pounds but don’t sacrifice proper nutrition to lose a bit of weight.  No matter how busy you are planning your wedding, get an adequate amount of sleep.  In addition, make some room in your busy schedule for exercise; this will release endorphins, those “feel good” chemicals which will help to ward off anxiety.

Set up a budget and stick with it.

Unless you have unlimited funds, you’re going to have to determine in advance how much you have to spend and set up a budget in advance of your planning.  Allocate a specific amount for each category.  In addition, establish a miscellaneous fund for unexpected expenses.  Money can be an anxiety-producing issue while planning a wedding, but it doesn’t have to be if you establish guidelines from the outset.

Don’t try to do everything yourself.

This is your wedding and you want things done your way; however, that doesn’t mean you have to do everything yourself.  Delegate some tasks to family members or friends.  Assign a couple of people to write out and mail the invitations and track the RSVPs.   Once you’ve decided on the color and style of your bridesmaids’ dresses, let them be in charge of ordering them and taking care of alterations.  By the same token, have your fiancé ensure that his best man and groomsmen order their tuxes.

Don’t obsess about perfection. 

Nothing in life is perfect, so don’t worry that something will go wrong and ruin your day.  If you’re organized and do a good job planning, everything will go smoothly.  Remember, however, that there are some things you can’t control.  You’re hoping for a great weather, but it may rain the entire day.   If something doesn’t go as planned, you’ll just have to improvise.  For example, suppose the photographer doesn’t show up.  Ask one of your guests who’s a good amateur photographer to take the pictures.

There are a lot of details that go into planning a wedding but getting everything done doesn’t have to send you into a tailspin.  Be organized and set up a detailed plan before you get started.  Get together with some friends who’ve been through this before.  Hearing their stories will help you to relax.  Remember that your wedding day is a celebration of the commencement of your marriage; it’s what happens beyond this day that really matters.
