If you are planning a wedding, then you are familiar with stress. There are so many variables, so much to consider, so much that you want to be perfect, that you can’t help but be completely stressed out to the point that it can become all consuming. It’s totally natural to feel that way, but the good news is: Theres a solution.
The wedding industry is huge. Every year in the United States, there are approximately 2.5 million weddings. The United States wedding industry was estimated to be worth $53.4 billion as of 2013. What that means to you is, there are a LOT of professionals that know exactly how to help you. The trick is finding the right ones. That’s where your concern should initially be focused.
Taking the time to make those phone calls, take those meetings and ask those questions is what should be causing you stress. It’s a lot of work to find the perfect fit for you. The venue, photographer, flowers, dress, caterer, videographer, DJ and more. These are all services that you’ll likely need and the hope is that you find good, honest professionals that know what their doing.
Once you find them, once you’re confident that all of your hard work paid off……Let It Go. Let it all go. I know it sounds simplistic, but it really is the key to enjoying a stress free wedding day. All too often I meet amazing brides that are too consumed with making sure her guests are enjoying themselves, the professionals are doing their jobs and so on. The problem is that the day will fly by and before you know it it’s over.
My tip: Let the professionals do what you hired them to do. This is likely your first time, but everyone you hired has been through this many times and they know what can go wrong and what to anticipate. Whats more, they want you to be happy! So its in their best interest to make sure everything goes smoothly.
So, take up yoga or practice meditation or buy a LOT of chocolate. Do whatever it takes to help you let it all go on the day of your wedding.
Even if something goes a little sideways……trust me, it’ll make a great photograph. 🙂
