How to enjoy your Wedding Planning process and avoid stress


One of the most common questions I get as a wedding planner is if it is possible to enjoy planning a wedding. My answer is always the same. Yes it is and here are some tips on how to do it!

1. Get clear on what you want your planning process to feel like.
2. Be intentional about enjoying your planning process
3. Mentally prepare for the process by being honest about the possibility of stress
4. Be honest about what you can and cannot handle and then proceed accordingly
5. Avoid stretching yourself thin
6. Agree as a couple on who is in charge of what
7. Do not be afraid to switch plans if the original plan is not working the way you hoped
8. Be clear on the things you are not willing to negotiate on
9. Don’t take yourself too seriously - find humor in the unexpected
10. Be kind to yourself
11. Be quick to right your wrongs
12. Choose to enjoy yourself

  1. If planning your own wedding sends you over the edge, it's always best to escape for a while. Remember to breathe and compose your self in a way that suits you best. One good example is setting a date with your fiance—just a normal date, and strictly no wedding talks. There are many things that you can do to avoid stress in planning your wedding. Have a mental break. Wedding planning is already part of the wedding itself. Don't forget to enjoy!
