wedding planningLet’s face it, planning a wedding is an exciting yet, at the same time, overwhelming experience that involves you trying your hardest to achieve a picture perfect day. However, if you’re not careful, you can end up crashing before the wedding has even started. So in order to avoid getting burnt out halfway through planning your big day, be sure to implement the following five tips:

  1. Hire a wedding planner

As this may not be your profession, you’re going in blind – not knowing who the best caterers are, or where to find the freshest flowers, and who can make the most delicious wedding cake. By hiring a wedding planner, you can hand all those extra stressors to your ‘helper’ to make sure you’re less stressed and more focused on what’s important – celebrating being engaged.

  1. Make to-do lists

By having to-do lists, you’re setting yourself up for success – instead of forgetting important aspects or running out of time, needing to cram all the important details into the last few minutes of planning your wedding. This will also allow you to space your planning out to avoid feeling overwhelmed.


  1. Take breaks in between

It’s important to act like a normal human being whilst planning your wedding. The best way to do this is by taking breaks in between the planning process – doing things which aren’t wedding related. It’ll give your mind a break and your nerves time to calm down.


  1. Stick to what you decide

It’s important to stick to your decisions once you’ve made them. If not, you’ll end up feeling lost and in a panic due to having no sense of direction and running out of valuable time. This will also save you money in the long run, avoiding costly deposit-losses.


  1. Enjoy the process

Most importantly, learn to enjoy this process as it will only last a short while. Being burnt out is a sign that you’re taking on too much, too fast – not enjoying the journey. Besides, although you want to enjoy your wedding day, you also want to look back on the planning process and have fond memories that will last.
