Tip #1 – Stay calm
Emotions are heightened during this time as you prepare to start your new life together and before you say, react or do something that you would not normally calm down. Think about it this way – when you have a project due in a week and the visual that will seal the deal is missing, do you kick and scream in front of the team or do you go home and curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea? Or are you the type that plays one of your favorite records and dance around? Whatever you do to get past the frustration keep at it especially now.
Tip #2 – Lists
Knowing what needs to be done and by when is key to maintaining balance during your journey. If you use lists to manage your daily life then using them for your wedding planning is a win – win.
Listing items in order of negotiable versus non-negotiable – non-negotiable should always be at the top of your list and your budget breakout. Your non-negotiable should be the items that you will not miss if they are not there.
