You’re planning a wedding…OMG
You’re now freaking out…help!
Stop and take a few deep breaths and relax. Your wedding is very important, but if you spend your time stressed and freaked out about every last detail you will lose perspective and everything will become a chore. Remember why you are planning a wedding and I would bet that it is because you and your fiance’ are in love and are ready to make it official. Whether your wedding is small & intimate or large & elaborate, it all takes a mother load of planning and organization. Schedule a ‘planning date’ with your fiance’ and talk about the wedding ideas, theme, guest list, budget, etc. together. This would be a perfect time to see what tasks can be divided or shared. I have really seen an increased interest in the guys wanting to be a part of the wedding planning. I have received several calls setting up the photography consultation from the soon-to-be hubbies. They love having tasks to be in charge of. There will no doubt be moments where you don’t see eye-to-eye on certain things, such as guest list or that dream dress you have always wanted that costs a small fortune. Figure out what the top 3 important things are and budget the most for them (ahem..photography 🙂 ) and then look for ways to cut back on the rest. Get a planning journal. It doesn’t need to be anything fancy even though you can find wedding planning books at Barnes & Noble. This is a perfect way to keep track of everything.
Now I must admit that I am a bit of a technological geek and love that Google has wedding planning tools that are free. Oh and did I say FREE?? Click here to see all that you can do. It pretty much is a one stop shop. You can create a wedding website, share photos & albums, do all your planning & budgeting on Google docs, and even create announcements.
Be sure to take time away from the planning and just enjoy each other. Go for a run or have a fun night out with friends. Remember to laugh. Remember WHY you are doing this. Enjoy!
