Ways to beat the stress during wedding planning

Wedding planning can be a stressful activity - but here are a few tips to help you feel a bit more calm during the process!

1. Take a break

It might feel like you'll feel even more overwhelmed by taking a break away from the planning, but actually stepping away from those tasks might give you the perspective you need to feel better about the whole process!

Get out for a walk in nature, have a date night with your fiance, go and get some food - taking a break will give you the chance to take a step back, look at the process as a whole and prioritise.

2. Divide and conquer

Split the tasks into three groups - a set of tasks for each of you, and a set that you complete together.

This means that one person doesn't get overwhelmed with doing all the work, and you don't feel overwhelmed with what you need to do.

3. Mix it up

Instead of doing all the fun stuff first (menu tasting, cake tasting, wine tasting - can you tell I'm a foodie?), and leaving the boring bits until last, if you mix it all up, you'll keep having little bits to look forward to along the way,

4. Ask for help

If you trust your family or members of your wedding party, why not delegate and ask if they'll help with some of the tasks!

5. Make a ta-da list

At the end of a day of planning, make a list of everything you've accomplished to celebrate your success! To do lists can make you feel like you've got too much left to do, whereas a ta-da list will help you to feel proud of your accomplishments and motivate you to keep going!

Give me a shout if you'd like to chat more about anything cake or treat related - and keep an eye out for my next blog in a couple of weeks!

Happy wedding planning!
