Handling Wedding Stress
Wedding ceremony offers great deal of stress to the bride and groom and here are some tips that can help you in dealing with wedding stress.
Expecting wedding stress is a good way to reduce the stress since it will not surprise you. Pressure and stress seem to a part of wedding and finding a way around is not a good option and expecting them can help you anticipate and plan for problems.
On the other hand, it is better not to expect perfection; the rule is simple: the higher your expectations, the greater the disappointments. High expectations lead to greater stress, both in the preparation process and the wedding day itself. Know that whatever happens, you will be married at the end of the ceremony. Realize that sometimes the flub-ups are the most enjoyable things to reminisce about. Know that spending more money does not insure perfection. Don’t “blast” friends and family who make mistakes. If you have children in the wedding party, don’t expect anything even coming lose to perfection.
Contentment is your best friend in fighting wedding stress. You just need to be happy with what you can afford and focus on what you do have instead of what you don’t. And it is also important that you do not try to please everyone: Everyone has a vision of what a wedding should be. There is no way in the world to reconcile all of these views. Be polite, but don’t see it as your job to make everybody happy or to smooth over every conflict.
Planning ahead with a calendar of deadlines that allow plenty of margins for error is good for reducing stress. Spreading out deadlines, instead of clumping them together is a great way to get a good hold on your schedule and finding a wedding planner is also a good choice to ease your stress.
Listening to music, sitting in the park, taking a bubble bath or whatever way you like to be pampered can be mini-vacations that help to take you away from the stress
