5 Ways to Make Wedding Planning More Enjoyable

January 19, 2023

You’re about to celebrate and commemorate your relationship in a big way. There is so much to consider, planning a wedding can easily become overwhelming and stressful. This doesn’t have to be the case though – with a few simple adjustments, you can enjoy more of the planning process.

1. Delegate as Much as Possible.

Avoid burnout by accepting help from the people around you. Just because you want things done a certain way doesn’t mean you have to do everything yourself. Friends and family are usually more than willing to help out, you simply have to ask. Hand over tasks that you were planning to DIY. The extra hands will reduce stress and get things done more quickly.

2. Focus on the Experience.

While it’s important to stick to a wedding budget, it can make the planning process more stressful. Instead of fixating on what you are able to purchase to bring your wedding day to life, envision how you want your guests to feel. Once you start focusing on the experience, you will find that you don’t actually need everything you thought you did. Why purchase those overly expensive flowers for your table centerpieces when you can create a custom cocktail that your guests are more likely to remember? Instead of hiring a professional singer for your ceremony, ask that friend with the beautiful voice to sing something special for you.

3. Put All the Essentials in One Place.

Bridal couples can spend a lot of time answering the same questions once they start inviting guests to their wedding. To bypass this and reduce wedding planning stress, create a wedding website containing all of the information they need. Creating an online gift registry is also highly recommended. When you book your wedding with Rock Spring Mountain Farm, we include a free Wedding / RSVP webpage with every package. Just answer a few simple questions and we’ll do the rest!

4. Spend Enough Time on Vendor Research.

Hiring experienced vendors is another way you can spend more time enjoying the months leading up to your wedding. Experienced vendors are more organized and better at planning their side of things without much effort on your part.

5. Find Time for Self-Care.

If you don’t find time for self-care, you might wake up on your wedding day feeling exhausted and frazzled. Self-care doesn’t mean a weekly spa visit, simply finding time to switch off for an hour several times a week is all you need. Take a long bath, go out for a quiet dinner with your fiancé with no wedding talk, or arrange a brunch with your besties. When you’re feeling balanced, the wedding planning process won’t seem so overwhelming.
The wedding planning process can and should be a fun and memorable experience. Keep these tips in mind and who knows… you may just avoid turning into bridezilla before your wedding day!
