Wedding preparations can be fun and exciting until we get to the hardest parts. With a lot of pressure and expectations to manage, deadlines to beat, and payments to be made, wedding anxieties can be just around the corner. Worry no more because there are ways in which such anxieties can be managed. Read below:
1. A little anxiety is healthy.
According to the president and CEO of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America Jerilyn Ross, a little anxiety is perfectly normal and healthy. Good anxiety before your wedding day may cause you to become more driven to focus on what needs to be done, to take some action, and bring about results for a specific time. You may turn this worry or fear to take in concrete actions in prepping up for the wedding.
2. Everything seems to be ‘that important’.
It’s kind of funny how even the smallest and simplest of things tend to be magnified once couples decide to get married. This is because a simple glitch or disagreement all add up to the new fear of “what ifs” in the future. For instance, your car tends to lose its tires 8 months before the big day. Although for most people, this is no biggie stuff; but for you who is about to tie the knot 8 months from now, you tend to worry about having your tires loosen up on the day of your wedding. Funny as it sounds, but this dilemma really does happen for soon-to-be-weds.
3. Make a list.
A golden rule when preparing for your wedding is to make a timeline or roadmap for the wedding preparation. Wedding planners have their systematic way of drafting a timeline that would suit your hectic schedule. Most wedding planners organize the tasks into bite-sized pieces that would fit into a month, week, and day. This is another reason why it is always best to invest in a reliable wedding planner because their organizational skills make them capable of managing schedules, appointments, and making it to the deadlines.
4. Focus on what’s on the table.
This may sound very contradicting, but the key to fighting off the urge to worry and overthink is to focus only on today’s errands. It really helps if you put all your efforts and brainwork only into what is currently on the table and not so much into the future tasks. In this way, turning your tasks into bite-sized pieces will spare you from being anxious and overwhelmed.
5. Your wedding is not a one-man team.
Your wedding is DEFINITELY an outcome of team effort and coordination. You have helping hands around you that can do some of the tasks and errands. Your wedding planner handles the scheduling, negotiation, and coordination among different vendors and suppliers for you. Investing in a reliable events planner is vouching for a team itself already because they already established networks across different sellers who offer different specialties and niches.
The key takeaway here is that you are never alone in your wedding preparation journey. There will be helping hands and a team to guide you for every step of the preparation.
