Here at the Greek Club we’ve seen first hand how stressful planning a wedding can be. So we have put together 7 tips to make your life easier and less stressful during this happy and exciting time.
- Manage your time and delegate when possible
As soon as you are ready to start planning your wedding, make a checklist of everything you have to organise with deadlines and delegate. I mean, that’s what bridesmaids are for, right? Let them take some stress off your shoulders and help you out.
- Create a realistic budget
After creating a checklist of what needs to be organised, research and set out a budget for everything. Staying within your budget will most certainly reduce your stress- both now and in the not-so-distant future.
- Don’t Procrastinate
While it might seem easier to put of certain tasks, the truth is, timeliness and checklists are given for a reason. Delaying the inevitable only causes more stress. Staying up to date with your checklist will make future you much, much happier.
- Take time out from the planning
Taking a break every so often from the planning will keep you excited for the day by giving you a breather from the constant thoughts and tasks you need to accomplish.
This is my suggestion for many different circumstances. When planning a wedding, you will have many suggestions and ideas from different people. Sometimes, its perfectly fine to stand your ground. In other situations the best outcome for everyone involved is compromising.
- Realise some things are out of your (and everyone’s) control
Details are wonderful parts of a wedding, but if everything that you have in mind, doesn’t turn out exactly how you pictured it, everything will still be okay.
- When the day arrives, take a deep breathe and enjoy it! Try and take it all in and savour every moment- it will be over before you know it. Don’t stress over the little things and focus on the overall picture. It will be a night you wont forget!
