As a wedding planner, my mind is whizzing with ideas but sometimes I need to take a day to just stop! It’s the same when you are getting married. It is essential to take time out from planning your wedding. It can be an intense experience. There will always be venues to visit, suppliers to choose and seating plans to arrange. Often it's dealing with other people’s expectations about your wedding that cause the most headache! As everyone will have their ideas! But at the end of the day, it’s YOUR wedding.
Now, if you have hired a wedding planner like me, I can help with that, from organising suppliers, to managing your wedding day for you. Part of my job is also to keep you calm and collected. So, I am happy for you to offload any frustrations to me, I’m a good listener and problem solver too! Even if you don’t have a planner here are few stages when I suggest how to take a break from wedding planning and even taking some time out on your wedding day!
Before the wedding
The day before the wedding
On your wedding day
Many couples go straight from the ceremony to the reception. I suggest factoring in a 15-30-minute slot to your schedule, for you both to escape to a quiet spot to have some alone time. Either directly after the ceremony or during the wedding reception.
This time can be so special and intimate. The two of you can take a moment just to be with each other and reflect on the journey you’ve had and what is to come. As your wedding is just one day, your marriage is a journey for life.
Wedding planning is intense but there are fun parts to it as well. Like any journey in life, you must make time to enjoy the little things along the way.
I will end with this quote “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things!” Robert Brault
