Planning your own wedding can be very stressful, especially if you’re doing it on your own. My goal for today’s article is to lighten things up by giving you hacks that can make your life a lot easier as you plan! Below are 4 wedding planning hacks so you can be a stress less bride.

1. Automate RSVP

There are a lot of systems online that can eliminate all our manual wedding planning practices which can absolutely lessen a lot of your workload. One of these is an automated RSVP! There are free easy websites and forms that you can use, and it will not only help you with your workload, but with your budget as well! Talk about a life saver for a stress less bride.

2. Keep the Kids Busy

Kids can be very hyper and out of control at times whenever they feel excited. Because of this, it can give an impact to the wedding program because it can be really distracting. That is the reason why it is very important to learn how to keep the kids busy, and we can do it by:

  • Snacks for Kids – this will absolutely keep them busy, provided that the snack itself, and its packaging is not something that is noisy when they open it.
  • Activities for Kids – this can happen during the reception so they won’t get bored.

3. Have a Plan B

So many brides worry about this, which they should. If you are having an outdoor wedding during a rainy season, then it is very important that you have a plan B. This means that if ever it rains, we are prepared! There must be a back-up venue where you can transfer people in, or a tent that you can set-up just in case it happens. In this way, the wedding will push through regardless. This is a very good tip to keep your bride one happy stress less bride. 

4. Remember Why You’re Getting Married

It is important that you won’t get caught up with the stress when you’re planning your wedding. It is very important that you also enjoy the process of it. Adjust your timelines in a way that you can balance your life during the process. You will only get married once, so might as well treasure and enjoy every moment of it! Maybe go on romantic dates or better yet massages! This is a bonus tip for any one who wants a stress less bride on their hands.

Maybe these things are better said than done, but at least you gain an understanding of how you can relieve a lot of stress and dodge some bullets. I hope this blog helped and if it did, feel free to check out last week’s blog where we give you all the wedding hacks that will make your life easier!
