I know, you are doubting that a stress-free wedding is even possible. Stress-free might be over promising - let's just say "low stress" or "lower than your cousin's crazy wedding stress".
We've got our top 5 tips to help you enjoy a low stress North Georgia wedding!
1. Decide what is most important
When you start planning your wedding, there are so many details to consider. Which venue will you choose? What type of menu do you want? What colors will you choose? Which wedding dress is right for you?
And the list keeps growing. If you try to prioritize everything, you will become quickly worn out.
Choose your top 2 – 3 items that are most important. Maybe it’s the cake or the flowers. It might be having a larger wedding with all the guests.
By choosing 2 – 3 most important items, it will help drive your decisions and help you say “no” to some other items.
2. Trust your vendors
You’ve done your research and taken recommendations to find your vendors. After you have hired your vendors, trust your judgement and theirs.
If you chose your florist because you love their style, you clicked during your consultation and their proposal works with your budget – then don’t second guess yourself.
As you get closer to wedding day, the stress can start to kick in and you might start questioning your decisions. Trust that you made the right decision and let your North Georgia wedding venue and vendors do their thing.
3. Ask family and friends to help
You don’t have to do it all on your own. Stop and think of 2 – 3 family members or friends that you know would be willing to help. You can probably come up with some names pretty quickly.
Ask them to help! (They may have already told you they would love to help – you just have to ask). I get it, asking for help can sometimes be hard. They really will love to contribute. Think of a specific task for them and ask them to take care of it.
It can be simple things like bringing décor to the North Georgia venue or taking it home after the wedding, bringing water or snacks for the bridal suite or getting cards and gifts to you after your honeymoon. These small things can take a lot of stress off your plate.
4. Take a Break
The hardest thing to do during wedding planning can be to take a break. Every time you are with your fiancé you can probably think of at least 10 things to discuss, ask or update them about the wedding planning.
Make sure you take some time to step away from the planning and just enjoy being engaged! Go on a date and don’t talk about the wedding (maybe at least until dessert).
5. Don't worry about the little things
Spoiler alert, something is going to not go to plan. It’s usually something small, and you might not even know.
Try not to stress about every detail being perfect.
Napkins came in the wrong color? Your guest won’t know what shade of pink they were supposed to be.
Caterers brought an incorrect appetizer? The guests will never know and still enjoy the food.
Do your best to stay in the moment, focus on marrying your best friend and enjoy the day!
