Whether you're stressed about how much time until you're wedding day arrives, or the amount of time it'll take to complete specific tasks, you can decrease that stress.
To manage your stress when you feel like time is dwindling down, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, especially if you keep telling yourself, “I’ll do it later. I have time.” Creating a timeline is the best way to combat those feelings. By making your own timeline, you can create an ultimate plan that won’t overwhelm you. There will be some items that need to happen closer to the wedding day, but you can accomplish quite a bit beforehand.
If you're still stressed about having enough time to complete everything, that's where your wedding party comes in handy. Delegating some tasks to your wedding party is ok. Things like addressing envelopes and putting together centerpieces are perfect tasks to ask for help with. You can even ask for help in researching options for other parts of the wedding, like appetizer ideas, playlist additions, and possible floral arrangements.
5. If you’re stressed about making decisions…
This is where your wedding party can absolutely have a huge role in relieving your wedding stress, especially when it comes to food. This goes for the guys and girls you’ve asked to stand up with you and your soon-to-be spouse.
If you’re worried about whether people will like the food you choose, see if some of the wedding party can attend the tasting to give their opinion. Some bakeries have tasting platters you can purchase and take home. Plan a tasting party with your friend at your house so you all can check out what’s available.
In the end, you have the power to make the decision. Regardless of how much advice you’re getting, this is YOUR day. Give yourself the power to make the final decision without feeling like your wants should be sacrificed for everyone else. Having the freedom to make the decision you want will help alleviate stress.
