I was actually not looking forward to this Wedding Wednesday like I had been for the others. I haven’t been able to check anything off of my list in the past week, and it doesn’t look like I will for a few more weeks. I am slowly sinking into a puddle of tears when it comes to our venue. I hate that I had every detail planned out surround by this venue, and we are having so many problems with it. I need more options.
I have been looking for other venues, but none of them give me butterflies or get me as excited as my dream venue. It is also in such a perfect location that I don’t think I will find another one as close to nightlife, hotels, the Chesapeake Bay, and not totally break the bank. I am slowly melting, but I have been doing a few things to get me somewhat closer to some of my wedding goals. I am also trying to teach myself calligraphy. Is anyone has any helpful hints, I would love to hear them!
The only thing I can say is planning weddings for other people is so much easier.
Since I can only do so much, here are some of the things I do, remind myself of, or read daily to keep my stress a little lower.
- Exercise, this is a top priority. It helps me to release stress and focus more on what I need to do in all aspects of my life
- I try to remember that it could be worse. In the end it won’t matter about the centerpieces, who doesn’t attend, or even the venue but that I get to marry my best friend and spend the rest of our lives together
- Bubble baths. This is such a simple pleasure and I have been taking full advantage of them lately
- Being around friends that won’t ask a million questions. While I love that my friends are so supportive and willing to help, there really hasn’t been anything that I need help with lately. Having friends that understand that has been such a huge help
- Praying, every night I say my prayers and give my worries to God about the wedding. It will all work out in the end
- Living by this- “stressed is desserts spelled backwards”…so after I exercise I have some wine, that is dessert, right?
What helped you stay stress free and happy while planning?
