Wedding planning is often depicted as a beautiful and joyful experience where two people in love come together to create their dream celebration.
While that may be true IF and only IF you take the right steps to have a stress-free wedding planning experience. Behind the scenes, wedding planning can be an incredibly stressful process and it’s not until you’re in the thick of it that your realize that.
Now, what makes wedding planning so stressful and what can help with the stress? Let’s get into it!
One of the biggest stressors in wedding planning is the sheer number of choices to make. From selecting the perfect venue and floral arrangements to deciding on a menu and wedding theme, the range of options can be so overwhelming. Couples can find themselves wanting to throw in the towel just with the choices that need to be made!
Balancing wedding planning with everyday life, work, and personal commitments can be honestly the biggest challenge! The pressure to meet deadlines for booking venues, selecting vendors, and coordinating logistics can create a time crunch which can lead to so much anxiety!
While family is an essential part of any wedding, it can also be a significant source of stress. Managing family expectations, navigating all the dynamics, and dealing with disagreements can add extra pressure to an already chaotic and stressful time. Wedding planning can bring family conflicts to the forefront, and this can be emotionally draining for couples.
