To Stress, Or Not To Stress

Updated: Feb 6, 2019

Planning a wedding is often one of the most stressful ordeals that a bride (and groom) will go through in their relationship.

Saying 'Yes' is easy, but let's face it - planning a wedding and having to think of all the ins and outs that go along with planning a wedding can be a pretty daunting task.

The big question I face you with today is - "To stress, or not to stress" - that is the question.

I have coordinated numerous weddings, each with it's own sets of ups and downs. Each bride and groom are different, each has their own vision and each their own idea of how things should work in the planning process. One of the things that each of my bridal couples has in common, is that every single one of them have approached me after their wedding with the words 'I wish I didn't stress so much!'

If there is one bit of information that I can share with you (whether you have hired a coordinator or are planning the wedding yourself) would be to delegate, hand over responsibilities, and least of all - STRESS. The list of things to do to put together your special dream wedding may seem endless and like a bottomless pit of planning, but I have news for you. It does come to an end, and when it does - you should be able to look back on the process and have enjoyed every single minute of it!

Months and months of planning lead up to one single day, a day where you are the star attraction, a day where family and friends from near and far will join you to celebrate your union with your soul mate. Stressing, at the end of the day, takes away from the magical moments that this special day presents. It clouds your mind and doesn't allow you to revel in the beautiful surroundings that you have been meticulously planning for months.

Live in the moment, take a breath, appreciate the small things, surround yourself with laughter, absorb the beauty and love that comes with planning your special day, and when it comes to 'sweating the small stuff' and stressing about your special day - let us at Ruby Bee Weddings & Events take care of those 'sweats' and stressful aspects for you!
