Tips For Staying Sane While Planning Your Wedding

If you are planning your wedding, there's a good chance that you are under an unbelievable amount of stress. You have to spend a ton of money on food, alcohol, and decorations. You have to figure out what days are going to work and where you want to have the reception. Here are some tips for staying sane while you are planning your wedding so that the process is as easy and smooth as possible.

1. Reduce the Amount of Input You Get

The first thing that you need to do is reduce the amount of input that you get. People are going to have opinions about your wedding colors, your wedding dress, the type of flowers that you get, and other details. It is going to be impossible to make everyone that offers input happy. You need to make sure that you keep track of what you want in your wedding, not what anyone else wants. If this means not talking about your wedding with certain people to reduce the amount of input that you receive, then make sure that it happens. 

2. Don't Divide the Party

Make sure that you present a united front with your significant other when you are dealing with people making requests. You don't want to tell your significant other's cousin that he can't sit at a certain table because you know that he is going to make someone else uncomfortable and have your significant other say the opposite. If you work out any potential controversies ahead of time and appear as united as possible, you will be able to make the process go much more smoothly. It will also help reduce the amount of fighting that you do with your significant other which will make you a lot happier.

3. Stay Organized

Make sure that you get a separate binder for your wedding details so that you are able to keep on top of deadlines and when down payments are due. This will allow you to avoid having to pay late fees or get denied a venue. Have a separate, smaller calendar for your wedding day itself. Make sure that this timeline is as detailed as possible so that you are not running late for any part of your wedding. This will help keep the show moving smoothly and will help keep you from getting flustered.
