Tips To Help You Stay A Stress-Free Bride
Wedding planning can be extremely stress-inducing. There are vendors to hire, food to taste, decor to decide on and so much more! Plus, most couples choose to plan their wedding in roughly a year. That’s a lot to do with not a lot of time. To avoid going crazy and becoming a bridezilla, we have some tips to help you stay stress-free while planning!
Hire a multi-service vendor
In 2018, engaged couples hired an average of 13 vendors for their wedding day. That’s a lot of different people to contact, money to dish out and businesses to stay on top of. Here at Mike Staff Productions, we allow you to book your wedding DJ, photographer, videographer and uplighting services all through us! Book two services save $200! Book three services save $500!
That’s only one company to handle four essential vendors for your wedding. Feel free to check our availability for any or all of your wedding day needs right on our site. Hiring a multi-service vendor reduces a lot of stress because you won’t be running from business to business to meet or make payments.
Consider an all-in-one venue
Similar to a multi-service vendor, all-in-one venues will help you stay more organized and less stressed while planning! Instead of trying to find a ceremony venue, a reception venue and a place for the two of you and your wedding party to get ready, multi-use venues have all of these amenities in one location. Again, you’ll only have one business to be in communication with, over potentially four if you didn’t take advantage of this tip. Yes, the fourth vendor you’d have to contact without an all-in-one venue is transportation for your guests; especially if there will be an open bar.
Bulk ordering gifts and favors
Make purchasing gifts for your wedding party and guests as stress-free as possible by bulk ordering everything you need. This is a really common thing to do for wedding favors; it’s easy to bulk order candy, bags, decor, candles, chapsticks, or anything else you can dream up for customizable wedding favors. And now, with so many well-loved companies offering a bulk ordering option, it’s easy to get great gifts for your friends and family in your wedding party too! An idea we love is gifting your friends their new favorite sunglasses. Especially for those of you with a wedding this upcoming spring or summer.
Make time for yourself (and your fiancé!)
Usually, a few months prior to your wedding a lot of the planning is done! Then, all you have left to do is tie up a few ends the week of your wedding. In between this time, make space in your schedule to relax and recharge. Whether this is alone, with your fiancé or even a bit of both, it’s key to help keep stress at bay. Consider a spa day for a rejuvenating facial or couples massage, a fun date night where no planning talk is allowed or simply some time alone doing your favorite hobby.
Stay as stress-free as possible while wedding planning by utilizing as many of these tips as possible! Remember, this experience is once in a lifetime, so do all that you can to enjoy the months that lead up to your wedding.
