Stressed bride?

I recently stumbled upon an article on the internet detailing the top worries brides have when it came to their weddings.

Planning is the key to a fabulous wedding

The article revealed that the top stress factors were:

Going over budget – 65%

Forgetting a crucial detail – 50%

Not having a fun reception – 39%

People not showing up – 25%

Is there any way we can reduce these worries? Yes, there definitely is.

Good planning is the key. No matter what, its normal for bride-to-be’s to stress, however planning ahead ensures that you know what you should be doing, when and where.

Some good planning tips from someone who has been there and done that:

  1. Make a timetable of tasks to be completed. Set tentative due dates for each task and try to complete them all on time. Don’t worry too much if you sometimes fall behind (this is all too common)- as long as you have a timetable drafted, you will at least know what you have left to do, instead of constantly panicking that not everything is done.
  2. Keep a diary and record progress you make each day/week/month.
  3. Delegate tasks to different people. It’s your wedding however you don’t necessarily have to take everything on yourself. Perhaps ask your BM’s to help with some tasks and friends and family members with other tasks. The majority will probably be delighted to have a part in your wedding planning!
  4. Set a budget and try to stick to it. It is likely you will run a little over budget. Try to cut back on some areas if possible.
  5. Talk to other bride-to-be’s. You will find that they too are most likely having the same issues and concerns as you. Remember that a problem shared is a problem halved.

  1. Cool post! How much stuff did you have to look up in order to write this one? I can tell you put some work in.

  2. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thank you!
