There are only two words to describe wedding planning, exciting and stressful. And there will be days (or nights) that you are going to reach for a bottle of wine or beer. Like guests texting you in the middle of the week saying that they are planning to bring uninvited people and other situations that will make you want to scream your heart out. So we thought of giving you some helpful tips to reduce that stress!
If you are a busy person allot a time to answer your vendor’s emails or text messages. Better if you can do it on weekends when there is no workload. They will understand if a certain day or weekdays won’t work for you.
No one will tell you when to stop because you are the boss. Take a break once in a while especially if planning and work are stressing you out. You deserve to go to that spa and have a massage because planning a wedding and working at the same time is difficult!
This will keep you on track because you will know your schedule. You will not miss any vendor appointments and office meetings if you have a planner. You can also write there all your accomplishments, budgets, and checklists!
