Establish “No wedding talking” time
Planning your dream wedding on time is very important. But, the wedding planning is not the only activity you have in your life, so don’t let it occupy all your life and time. Take a break of wedding-related discussions at least one day of the week (No talking for weddings on Mondays!), or at least an hour during the day. This way the wedding planning won’t consume you and all your time, and it will be easier for you to return back to the topic refreshed.
For a stress-free wedding planning delegate the must-do activities. Planning a wedding party is not one wo(man) operation. Delegate the responsibilities with your husband-to-be, or even include some relatives or friends in the project. This way you will have more energy to focus on the big picture, while your dearest ones are taking care of the small details making the big picture. Be sure to show your appreciation for those that help your big day come to life. Wedding cards with a thoughtful note are a great way to say thank you for the help.
Don’t second guess yourself

However, there are some decisions, like making the guest list for example, that can literally leave you in a mental tug-o-war. The important thing is to never second guess yourself after you have made a decision. Once you have made up your mind on some choice, never ever turn back. Reopening the old discussions and considering the pros and cons of some choice you have made, again, will only make you feel more stressed. And, no bride to be want that. So, for a stress-free wedding planing, trust your instinct and move on.
Any time you feel being a little stressed about planning your wedding party, remember that it is your big day. You are marrying the man of your life, all your family will be there to celebrate your big love, and support you, and that is all that really matters. Never forget that.
