It's very easy to spin wildly out of control while planning your wedding; reeking havoc, making your future husband cry, and losing 2-3 friends in the process almost seem inevitable. It doesn't have to be like this girls - it really doesn't.
Reasons Why Brides Go Insane:
This section could literally go on for pages. There are many reasons why bride-to-be's go bananas while planning their wedding. Most brides haven't planned a large scale event before and since there are so many different tasks to take care of in such a short amount of time it can get hectic. Brides are also taunted with the idea of perfection. Many of us stress over small parts of the wedding such as the giveaways, the centerpieces, the type of cutlery, etc. We somehow think this perfection will give us a happier wedding day - which really isn't the case.
Reasons Too NOT GO Insane:
The main culprit of this wedding chaos is what I call 'the Bridezilla Effect'. Ever since Bridezilla came into our television lives it's becoming more and more apparent that some women feel it's completely understandable and even cute to act like a total brat on their wedding day. The harsh truth: it's really not cute at all. No one likes a Bridezilla - we watch her in awe with our mouths agape as she ruins her own experience and the experience of those around her - but no one likes her. It is much better to take the trials and tribulations of your wedding planning with a grain of salt. That way when you are running through your wedding album with your friends and family months later they will all recall how beautiful you looked and how much fun it was - not how much of a evil person you became.
Ways of Dealing with the Drama:
- Keep perspective: Freaking out on your future sister-in-law because she got a large tattoo of the Fleur-de-lis on her lower back 2 weeks before your wedding -which is visible through her bridesmaid dress - does not help matters. Your wedding is one day and she will be your sister-in-law for decades
- Let your groom help you: Of course your husband is smart, adaptive, and flexible THAT'S why you're marrying him!Run through your list of tasks with him weekly and decide together what he can do and what you can do. Realistically.
- Don't sweat the small stuff: Let's face it - although it's great when everything falls into place, when it comes down to it, the color of the flowers will not make nor will it break your day.
Take a deep breath, remember that your friends and family are precious, and your wedding will come and go in an instant. The only thing that lasts is the memories…make sure they're good ones!
