Mindful, Personalized Wedding Planning To Ease Stress

There are many approaches to wedding planning, but mindful decision-making is one of the most important. Find out more about it here.

It can be easy to get swept up in what everyone else seems to want or expect when it comes to wedding planning. You might hear suggestions from family members, friends, and even total strangers that can make you feel like you need to include certain things in your celebration.

But at the end of the day, a wedding should be all about what you and your partner want. That’s why mindful wedding planning is so important. Here are a few tips for keeping your focus on what matters most:

Make your Priorities Clear Right from the Start

Being on the same page and with an idea of what you want is important. Make your priorities clear from the beginning, so there are no surprises when you’re deep into wedding planning.

Sit down as a Couple and Figure out what Truly Matters to you Both

For example, whether you want an elaborate party with a big guest list or something more intimate and low-key. Then communicate these priorities clearly to everyone involved in the planning process to know exactly what’s important and what isn’t.

Don’t Buy into the Hype.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our own experience with wedding planning, it’s that people will try to convince you that certain aspects of your wedding are “must-haves,” whether it’s a certain type of food or a color scheme that has been trendy for years now.

Be Flexible but not too Flexible.

One of the best pieces of advice we’ve ever received is to be open to change and have a few non-negotiables. For example, if you want to get married outdoors, then make that your priority and be willing to adjust other aspects of your wedding accordingly.

Choose your Battles.

With so many different aspects of wedding planning to think about, it’s important to be able to pick and choose which ones are worth your time, energy, and money. If there’s something that you’re not particularly passionate about, see if you can delegate it to someone else or simply let it go altogether.
