Wedding planning can be a challenge for both the bride and the groom but while men aren’t very specific about what they want and what they don’t, women are pretty adamant about getting things right for their wedding. However, remember that the purpose of planning your own wedding is to have fun while doing it, so you shouldn’t let the process get to you and enjoy it all.
Though it is true that organizing your entire wedding can sometimes become frustrating, we can help you de-stress, relax and unwind. Start doing these things as soon as you start planning your wedding and focus on them especially when the wedding is one to two weeks away.
#1. Keep a Planner
If you want to be your own wedding organizer, you need to keep everything managed. The best way to do this is to keep a planner or a diary handy. There’s so much to be planned and done that you often end up missing out a responsibility simply because you didn’t remember it. Use tools like budget planners, checklists and other similar items to keep track of everything so you don’t end up getting overwhelmed.
#2. Get a Sidekick
Yes, we know you want to plan your entire wedding because, well, it’s your wedding. But you still need little minions helping you out here and there. There’s no shame in asking your siblings or BFF for help. You need a sidekick who knows the tiniest details of what you’re planning. Once you start delegating, you’ll realize that distributing the workload is the best thing you ever did for your peace of mind.
#3. Enjoy Your Singlehood
Starting a new union with someone means you’ll need to wave goodbye to a few things that you enjoyed during your singlehood. So just before the shaadi, don’t forget to indulge in guilty pleasures like binge watching your favorite shows and eating all the popcorn and chips you can devour. If movies aren’t your thing, you can relax by listening to your favorite music and cooking your heart out.
#4. Hire Professional Vendors
One of the best things about hiring a wedding planner is that they have the right contacts and hire great vendors. But even if you’re organizing the shaadi, you should pay attention to the vendors you’ll book to help you out throughout the wedding. Unprofessional vendors will keep messing things up for you and you’ll just end up being frustrated instead of relaxed.
#5. Stay Healthy
The most important thing for a dulhan for her wedding should be her health. We aren’t just talking about taking care of yourself physically by eating right and exercising, but also your mental health. If you feel like something is bugging you, talk to someone about it and don’t let it get to you. After all, a healthy bride is a beautiful bride. On that note, you should stay connected with your BFFs so you can tell them all about the wedding and its ins and outs. Good friends act as the perfect buffer between you and the wedding jitters so don’t forget to have some fun with them. Also, once in a while, forget the wedding planning, keep it aside and talk about something else that takes your mind off of things.
#6. Pamper Yourself at the Spa
Spend time at the spa and pamper yourself as much as you can. If you ever feel like you need a break from all the wedding planning, grab a few of your friends and go to a spa. Treat your skin with the best facials and let the expert masseuse take away all the knots and stresses. This time can also be great for your skin because it’ll leave every part of your body shining.
When all is said and done, the thing you need to focus on the most is to rest, rest and rest! Take a break once in a while and just sleep or do something that relaxes you like reading or cooking. Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep during the month of your shaadi so you can be the glowing, beautiful dulhan the guests can’t take their eyes off of.
