HOW DOES WEDDING STRESS AFFECT US?
Getting engaged is one of the most exciting times of your life, but Brides so often tell me that it turns then into the most stressful time. Why? Well, because you are stepping into the unknown and because you only get married for the first time once, there is a lot of pressure on getting it right. Oh, and the third thing is that its paid for with your own money, not a corporate budget or someone else’s credit card.
Three stressful issues to contend with - well here is three different solutions.
Decide on your WHY early. The answer to you getting married is not actually because you are in love - there are deeper reasons, so search for those and write down the top 5 things that are important to you. That might be 1) to have family and forever friends celebrate this next step and life with you; that helps you work out how many reallllllly should be on the guest list. Or 2) your getting hitched to formalise your relationship and buy a house together - that will help you decide, do you want to upgrade the kitchen or get a new sofa, or have that dream destination location. So you get my drift….?
Then have the “money talk”. Who is actually paying for the wedding or contributing to it? Are there strings attached to that contribution? Then you know what your budget is to work with - and make decisions in order of priority with that as your framework.
The last thing is deciding if a little bit or a lot of help would be useful and get rid of that stress? What if you do all the research, but have no idea where to find the supplier to book the theming. Or, what if your dream destination location is a hire, plus, plus cost venue and you have no idea who to negotiate the inclusions or exactly what they should be?
Hiring a wedding planner for a little bit of help will ensure that you do get value for money, save time on researching and planning and with 100% confidence because we hear it from our Brides all the time, you will suffer from less stress.
