Of course, planning a wedding can be more than “just” difficult – it can be stressful and downright scary at the same time. However, the truth is that this is a very important day in your life – and if there’s one thing only that you will truly want to stick to when it comes to it, that is your sanity. After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event and your sanity is the one that will help you remember it for many, many years to come!
In between handwriting place cards and making sure your guests actually make it to the wedding, keeping your sanity can be tough though. However, there are a lot of things you can do in order to avoid a stressful breakdown – and we have gathered some of the most useful ones. Continue reading and find out more!
- Give in. That’s right, simply give in. The chaos around you is a marvelous disaster and you should learn to love it if you want to keep your sanity intact. The flowers may not be the ones you asked for and the foie gras may taste like chewing gum – but you know what? This is your Big Day and your guests are there for you – not for the flowers, not for the food and not to stare at your gown for 6 hours straight. Enjoy the moment, be happy and embrace the chaos!
- Your loved ones can help. But only as long as they are willing to do it on your terms. If they are simply there to constantly oppose you, be kind (both to yourself and to them) and tell them that some things are just extremely important for you. Eventually, they will understand. At the same time, if they are willing to do things your way, they are more than welcome to chip in and help you out!
- Stop and savor the moments. With all the stress and the fuss of the Big Day, it is quite likely that many of your memories will “melt down” into each other. If you want to keep them as vivid as possible, make sure to stop and “snapshot” the events you are going through.
