Is Wedding Planning Stressing You Out? Break It Down

Is wedding planning stressing you out? Getting married is one of the most wonderful things that you will do in your lifetime, but that does not mean that it is easy, nor does it mean that it isn’t going to cause you any stress. In fact, most people find the entire process extremely stressful as it is simply one thing after another to organize. Having said that though, you have to be able to find the excitement in it to be able to enjoy the day when it finally comes, because remember, this is supposed to be one of the best days of your life. 

In this article, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the sections that you can break wedding planning down to, ensuring that it doesn’t cause you so much stress. Keep reading down below if you would like to find out more.

The Dress

The first thing that we are going to look at is your dress. As the bride, you and the groom are the two who are supposed to stand out the most at the wedding, and you want to ensure that you have a dress that makes you feel every bit the princess that you are for the day. Anything less will simply not do, and it’s something that you should not compromise on. Even if you are on quite a tight budget for your dress, we’re sure that if you look long and hard enough, you will find something that makes your heart flutter.

It’s best if you have some kind of idea as to what you are looking for, but don’t close yourself off entirely to other options. The reason that we say this is because a lot of the time, the dress that you choose ends up being one that you may not usually pick up because of the style. You have to be willing to try new things in order to find the perfect dress, so make sure you’re keeping an open mind.

The Guest List

You should also ensure that you are setting the guest list according to who you want at the wedding and nothing else. Sure, tradition dictates that there are certain people that you should invite to your special day, but if you don’t want them there then there is no reason for them to be there. As well as this, if you know that there is someone who does not approve of your wedding and is very vocal about this, maybe consider leaving them off the guest list. The reason that we say this is because you don’t want to be worried all day about the things that they are going to say and do throughout the day. You have enough stress, you don’t need more.

When you are sending out your invites, ensure everyone that you want to attend is getting one. Also, make sure that you are putting all of the details needed on the wedding invite so that people can plan accordingly. 

The Venue

The venue can cause quite a lot of stress to the planner, especially if you are planning on booking two separate ones. This is what most people do as they hire one place for the reception and one for the ceremony. If this is the path that you are going to take, you need to consider the distance between the two venues. People need to be able to navigate their way from one to the other without getting lost or it takes hours to do. 

Try to think about the requirements of the venue such as how many people you are inviting, what kind of amenities you want, and above all else make sure that it looks pretty. Remember that this is going to be the backdrop of your wedding photos, and the last thing that you want is to look back and think that you would have loved to have been somewhere else.

Bridesmaids And Flower Girl

Of course, you’re going to have to pick out the dresses for your bridesmaids and your flower girl. You can let them help you by telling you what kind of things they would like to wear and if there is anything that they absolutely don’t want to wear, but at the end of the day, the choice falls to you. Go with your bridesmaids to the dress shop and see what kind of things you can find, what they like, what you like, and hopefully, they are going to be the same thing. Ideally, you need to have the color in mind as soon as possible as it makes it easier to narrow down the options.

When it comes to flower girl dresses, these are so cute it’s unbelievable. The little girl wearing this dress is going to look so cute, so make sure that she has an incredible dress for the day. It’s your big day, but she’s also going to feel like a princess walking down the aisle before you.

Flower Arrangements

Flower arrangements are another crucial detail of the wedding day, and the next step on the list. While you might not care much for flowers, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to get them ordered as soon as possible. They make the room beautiful, they make your bouquet stand out, and they are a generally pleasing aesthetic. You don’t have to stick with one kind of flower as most people don’t, so think carefully about the kinds of things that you think would be pretty together.

If you find yourself struggling, then it’s easy to ask a florist for their opinion. If you tell them what kind of things you like and what kind of colors you would like, they will be able to help you make a decision. It might take a little bit of changing around, and you don’t have to go for the first option that they give you.


What entertainment are you thinking of for your reception? Most people hire a DJ or a band to play the music at their reception, so this is well worth looking into. If you want live music then you are going to have to find someone to hire for the day, and if you want a DJ then this is a lot easier. The last thing that you want is for your wedding reception to be boring, especially not when it’s supposed to be one of the best days of your life! Take the time to really look into all of your options here, and come up with something that suits both you and your partner. You might think that this is impossible, but we’re sure it’s not.

The Food

Ah, the wedding breakfast! You have a number of options available here, though some venues insist that you use their caterers so double-check this when booking your venue. Some people prefer a sit-down meal, while others prefer a buffet approach where people can help themselves. It’s entirely up to you and there is no wrong way to do this. You might want to choose a luxury three-course meal, or you may want to have a pizza buffet because that’s your favorite. There is no wrong answer, so just go with whatever will make you happy. 

Do make sure that you check for any intolerances or dietary preferences from your guests so that you can offer alternatives if needed though.


The final thing that we are going to mention is the rings. When the ceremony is over, you are both going to exchange rings as tokens of your love, and this ring is what you are going to wear for the rest of your life. Now, you have two options, and each couple will choose what works for them. Some couples split up and choose the ring for the other on their own, and some couples go shopping for these together. As we mentioned, it’s the ring that you are going to wear for the rest of your life so it’s important that you like it, which is why so many couples insist on picking out these rings together.

You can get matching sets, or you can go for something completely different from your partner depending on your differing tastes. The main thing is that you have the rings ready to say "I Do" before you are pronounced married!

Hopefully, you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the sections that you can break your wedding planning down to if you are struggling. Planning an entire wedding can get extremely overwhelming, especially if you are doing most of the planning on your own. There is always an option to get the help of a professional if you feel as though this would help, but if you’re someone who needs control over the process, then breaking it down is the best way to get through it. We hope that you have a wonderful wedding day, and live a happy life with your partner.
