Regardless of how much you think you'll have your emotions under control during the wedding-planning process, the chances are high that you'll experience some sort of stress during the months leading up to your big day. While having a wedding planner and a great team of professionals on your side can help relieve anxiety that everything will be done on time and in an organized manner, there will still be decisions you'll need to make that can cause some uneasiness: compiling the guest list, dealing with family relationship issues, disagreeing with your fiancé(e) or parents, and much more.
When you begin to feel the shadow of stress upon you, it's important to take a step back and remember what the wedding is all about – marrying your beloved and starting your life together. It's also helpful to schedule massages, go out on date nights where talking about the nuptials is off limits, and taking moments for yourself to truly relax and feel zen. Since many brides share that planning a wedding is like having a second job, it's also important to get enough sleep and make sure you're not overworking yourself. After all, you want to look your best on your wedding day – not bogged down and tired.
