Priority board! Do it at work and I do it wedding planning as well. Make a sticky note wall with the specific tasks needed to be done on a week to week basis. Once the task is completed take it down, if it didn’t get completed within the desired week it gets moved down to the next weeks priority. Keeps fiancé and family accountable as well as some tasks are for them
I fall off the grid! That's why y'all haven't seen me the past few days lol. I did it when I got stressed in university and I do it now. After 2-4 days, I feel bored and slowly work my way back online.
We haven't gotten into our planning enough yet to get too stressed. If I ever get worried, stressed or overwhelmed... I just drop planning stuff for a week or two. Also coming on here and helping other brides work through problems is bizarrely therapeutic. Haha. I think seeing other people go through issues ahead of me puts me in a better position to avoid those issues myself.
Once we get into more "crunch time", building DIY projects, hunting down RSVPs, making timelines, getting the rings, the license, the suits.... I think I may start needing some wine & bubble bath nights.
Definitely have afew people that you can vent to, maybe over afew drinks as well! It really helped me to de stress and also learn when to walk away from a task or hand it off to someone else that you trust, don’t be afraid to ask for help! I thought I could do it all by myself, had I not had people take the reins from me on afew projects there’s no way I could have done it all. Also vent to us! This app and all the wonderful ladies was my saving grace ❤️
My biggest thing is have a bath and a glass of wine. My FH and I will also plan a "date" even if its just a beach trip. I just like having anything to keep my mine off the wedding. Now that he is gone I have been slowly building a puzzle while listening to an audio book.
I don't. I just bask in the stress. The wedding stress will leave when we're married and lying on a beach in Mexico 😂 All joking aside, prayer is always helpful though, you know, leaving it in God's hands when things get out of control
Earlier on I would take a break from planning and do something fun with my friends, family or fiancé - even just talking things out with him helped and I love a good massage but now that we’re two weeks out I don’t know how to! Lol I can’t take a break I have to keep going almost there!
