Planning a wedding can be one of the most exciting times of your life. It can also be one of the most stressful. Luckily, a bit of organisation can help make this time go smoothly, so you can enjoy your engagement period and look forward to the big day.
Here are some ways you can cut down on the stress when it’s time to plan your wedding:
Sort your invitations early
Having a destination wedding? Or planning to invite people from out of town? The best thing you can do is give everyone plenty of time and notice. And that means sending out your invitations nice and early.
It’s possible to find budget wedding invitations and rustic wedding invitations at Basic Invite. This is one of the best wedding websites around, with almost unlimited colors to choose from. You can even create a printed sample of your invitation so you can see what it would look and feel like.
Set a budget
The financial aspect can be the most stressful part of planning a wedding. Finance issues can cause stress and anxiety, and the last thing you need is to be arguing with your fiance over expenses.
Before you even begin planning, think about your budget. Aim to have some breathing room in your budget so you’re not worried about money in the weeks leading up to your big day.
Cull your list
When you’re paying per head, the more people on your guest list, the more expensive your wedding. You’ll also be dealing with all the stress that comes with sorting out who will sit next to who. Many couples decide to only invite people who have been there with them throughout their relationship. Now is also a good time to think about your kid policy. You may want to choose to only have kids who are in the bridal party or over a certain age.
Think big picture
If you get wrapped up in the details, it’s easy to get stressed. Your big day is exactly that- your day. This is the chance to celebrate your love for each other. Ultimately, the most important thing is that you get to say your vows in front of your friends and family. All the other small details are unimportant in the long run.
