Weddings are exciting, but wedding planning is stressful. Planning such a major event can take a toll on your mental, physical and emotional health. You have to choose a venue, pick a theme, find your dress and suit, decide who you want in the wedding party, plan for catering, choose between a DJ or live band, pick a florist, send out invitations, create a registry, host a bachelorette and bachelor party, plan a honeymoon and so much more.
It’s completely natural to be stressed about planning your Omaha weddings. However, there is so much to be grateful for, especially this time of year. It’s important to both take care of yourselves and know how to de-stress when needed. Below are some ideas to help you stay thankful and stress-free amidst the wedding planning process!
Create a clear to-do list and delegate tasks
It can be daunting when looking at your wedding checklist and thinking about everything you and your partner have to do to make this day happen. Divide and conquer. Delegate certain tasks between you and your fiancé. It can also help to write down all of your ideas and then put them in order of what is most important first. Sometimes when you have an organized list, you’re better able to see that what you need to do isn’t impossible.
Make time for self-care and take breaks
It’s important to make time for self-care and take a step back when needed. Do a face mask, paint your nails, read a book by the fire, hit the gym or cook something delicious. Anything that makes you feel good can be considered a form of self-care. You might be the type of person who wants to get all the planning done right away, but know that it will all come together in the end and that you need breaks to stay level-headed enough for it to be successful.
Go on a fun date
It can be easy to forget to go on dates and keep the love alive during all the wedding planning chaos. After all, wedding planning does take a toll on your relationship. 40% of couples say wedding planning is extremely stressful. Try a new local restaurant, go bowling, join a sand volleyball team,or pick up a new hobby together. This can help you remember why you love this person and why you’re marrying them.
Say “thank you” to those helping you
Along with thanking your family and friends for their help, extend thanks to your vendors and those participating in your wedding. Thank your significant other for bringing you a much-needed cup of coffee while you’re nailing down the wedding planning checklist. Saying thank you is a great way to express your appreciation and gratitude.
