Tip #1
When you are having moments of feeling overwhelmed and like you may be doing this wedding planning alone, PLAN a DATE NIGHT with your partner and bring the binder or laptop and go through the part of planning that is causing the stress and overwhelming feelings.
Why do I say it as a date night, well it’s pretty simple. A change of scenery can help the focus stay on the task at hand, as you are just the two of you and well don’t have to comforts of being in your own home. Let’s be honest when you are planning for what is considered one of your biggest days of your life, things can get tense and well frustrations can rise and being out of the house, helps keep those frustrations down.

TIP #2
When it can feel like both you and your partner are tapped out and not sure what you should do or next steps, then now is the time to reach out to your wedding party and or family. These are the people that have said yes to standing by you on your day and your family is well your family.
Don’t be afraid to reach out, even if you think that they don’t know anything about what your doing or that you won’t like their answers. The thing is, you aren’t always going to agree but sometimes just talking with them can help make you feel better.
