5 Tips to Help Stay Calm While Planning Your Wedding
Are Your Priorities Out Of Whack?
Don't you feel like there are SO many things that go into planning a wedding? Take the time, in the beginning, to really think about what aspect is most important to you on your special day.
The Dress, The Pictures, The Food, The Venue, The Flowers, The Cake. Phew!
If you can pinpoint these important things, it can really make decision making less stressful when you’re in the thick of wedding planning.
Be okay with spending a little extra time and money on your few priority aspects and penny pinch on other things. It can do wonders for time management and when you’re making your budget.
Also, sit down with your VIP people too and see what they think is important as well. Your Fiancé, parents and future in-laws might have a different idea of these priorities than you do. They might be willing to help or take on a specific aspect or even throw in a little extra money of what is important to them. Not only will this make them feel more included in the whole process, but it can take some off your plate as well. It's a win-win!
Are You Tossing and Turning Throughout The Night?
Get enough sleep. I know, duh. But sleep and mood are very closely connected. Plus it can really affect our outer appearance. We all want to look beautiful on our big day, right?
When busy schedules and the demands of life take over, plus all that goes into planning a wedding, a good night’s sleep is often the first thing to go. We think, “oh, I can make it through the day on four hours---I just need a little extra coffee.” We do the minimum for ourselves instead of listening to what OUR body really needs.
But your body, your skin, and your overall being need time to rest, dream, and recuperate. Getting the sleep your body needs is an act of self-nurturing. And when you nurture yourself, it shows on your face and in your mind. Sleep does miraculous things for your skin, your eyes and even your hair… no one wants dark under eyes, especially on their wedding day!
Lack of sleep or poor sleep can also cause irritability and stress. Planning a large event like a wedding can bring a lot of stress into a person’s life, so one of the easiest ways to prevent more stress or decrease stress is to make sure that you’re getting enough good sleep!
Often brides-to-be have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep because they have so much on their mind. A supplement like Melatonin Gummies For Adults is the perfect addition to your daily routineespecially while planning your wedding. Getting a great night’s sleep and feeling rested will help you be so much more productive during your wedding planning process.
Is Your Beauty Prep Routine Struggling?
Start a Hair Skin and Nails Supplement. These supplements are a great, EASY way to get you looking your best for your wedding day. Usually taken just once a day, it will help up your game in your beauty routine to prep for your big day. What’s easier than that?
Self-care is incredibly important, especially during stressful times like wedding planning. Make sure you are taking time out for yourself to relax and rejuvenate. Stress can show in all aspects of your life. Your skin, hair, health, mood and just your overall well-being. At least once a week, take time out for a long hot bath, face mask, just some sort of “me time”! Not only will it help you look beautiful on the outside, it can really help you de-stress and be more productive during the time you spend planning your wedding.
Exercise Regularly—not just to lose a few LBs or tone up for your big day, but as a stress reliever. Study after study has proven the positive effects of exercise on mood and well-being. A happy body is one that moves—regularly.
Even if you’re not one that usually exercises, you should start an exercise routine while planning your wedding just as a stress reliever. You don’t have to go 7 days a week or spend hours upon hours in a gym. Try to find some type of activity that feels good to you. Love to dance? Put on your favorite playlist in your living room and have a solo dance party. Love exploring? Spend your lunch break taking a walk in a new part of your neighborhood or check out the sights you’ve never seen before.
If you’re really stressed? Try a martial arts or kickboxing class. If you exercise in a way that feels good to you, you’ll be amazed how easy it becomes to keep it up. And the well-being it creates in your body will increase circulation, decrease inflammation and “tiredness,” rejuvenate your cells, and show in your skin and on your face. So not only will it help you look more beautiful on your wedding day, it can help relieve all the stress that wedding planning can bring on.
Since you will have so much going on with wedding planning, then your everyday life, more than likely you will start feeling a little run down after a while. Like there is never enough time in the day or you don’t have enough energy to get everything done that needs to be done. A great, all-natural way to increase your energy is a B-12 supplement. This type of supplement help promotes healthier levels of energy production which will decrease your overall fatigue. B12 has also been known to help with brain health and vitality, it also helps you get more restful sleep and gives your mood a nice little boost, therefore decreasing your stress levels.
Are You Strapped For Time?
Using a wedding website can be a major time saver and stress reliever, especially the days surrounding your big day. Include everything you can for your guests on the wedding website. Hotel reservation information, activities to do in the area, restaurants that you recommend, maps to the wedding event locations, really anything that your guests might need or have a question about during their stay for your wedding. It’s all in one place that is easy for them to find, so they do not have to bug you for any information.
You can also ask your guest to RSVP on your wedding website, instead of mailing an RSVP card back to you. This is an amazing time saver for you and your guest, plus you will save money on extra stamps and stationery for RSVP cards. One less thing to do...
Having Trouble Staying Organized?
Being organized is the best way to ensure that all wedding planning task is being taken care of, as well as a great way to keep up with your budget and any vendor information. Being organized will also make wedding planning much less stressful, so try and set up a good system that works for you in the beginning.
A tool like a spreadsheet is amazing for wedding planning. You can have multiple sheets in one document, so all the information you might need is in one place. Have one sheet for all your vendor or potential vendor information. Another sheet can be for your budget --To keep up with what you have spent or will spend. This is really helpful to prevent from overspending. You can also use another sheet to help keep up with dates that task needs to be completed by or a timeline, like mailing out invitations.
Create a folder in your email for just wedding information. That way when you need to go back and find it, it’s not jumbled up or lost in all your other emails.
Set reminders on your calendar and give yourself lead way. Like “Invitations need to go out in 1 week”, “Mail deposit to the florist on Thursday”,“Cake tasting tomorrow”.
“Weddings and marriage are among the most transformative decisions of our lives.”Dr. Jocelyn Charnas, Ph.D.
Mauricettes owner Amanda Clark(pictured below on her wedding day) says “wedding planning doesn't need to be stressful, just remember to take a deep breath, step away for a minute, have a glass of wine and remember the reason behind the event”.
Amanda realized that during the planning of her own wedding, she wasn't putting her health first. During the year that she planned her wedding, it was a very busy time. She graduated college, moved 3 states away to a completely new place, found a new job, worked full time, all while planning an out-of-state wedding.
Then one day she crashed. She wasn't taking care of herself, wasn't getting any good sleep, stressed ALL the time, became very moody, and all this started to physically weight on her. It started to affect every aspect of her life. Her job performance, her physical appearance, her relationship not only with her fiance but her family and friends, and especially affected her wedding planning.
She knew she needed a change and quick!Then she realized she needed help and turned to supplements.
Sleep was what seemed to be the biggest issue. "Even if I was able to get to bed at a decent hour, I would just lay there all night long with all the things I 'needed to do' running through my head. It was miserable!"Amanda stated,"my mind wouldn't turn off and melatonin was the only thing that helped!" Amanda had suffered from skin issues since she was a teenager. She didn't have enough time or money to see a dermatologist or get regular facials to help the issue, so the cheapest and most time-efficient option was to start taking a Hair Skin & Nails vitamin. Mid-afternoon fatigue was also a big issue. She tried everything you could think of, even stimulants. "Stimulants just made me feel jittery and have terrible brain fog. I hated the way they made me feel. B-12 was the only thing that helped boost my energy, and lasted throughout the day and night." Amanda said.
Amanda truly felt these supplements helped get her through the incredibly stressful time of wedding planning. Not only did they help her stay healthier on the inside but helped her feel more beautiful on the outside.
