How To Reduce Wedding Planning Stress When Everyone Has An Opinion

Whether you are freshly engaged or you’ve been planning your wedding for some months already, you may have come across people that are more than happy to give you their thoughts on your wedding plans.

And if you are planning to do something a little less traditional, you might have encountered even stronger opinions.

Here are three tips for keeping your cool while planning the wedding you want:

Keep your main wedding planning decisions between you and your fiancée

Even though you’re probably super excited to share you wedding day plans with your friends and family, the more people you include in the planning process, the more opinions you’ll be given, whether you ask for them or not. You know the saying “too many cooks spoil the broth”. By keeping the main details between you and your partner, you’ll be able to keep a clearer vision of what you want without getting confused by everyone else’s thoughts and opinions too.

Surrounding yourself with a team of people that share your creative vision will help to keep you feeling excited and inspired about your day, even if others around you are trying to pressure you to do things differently.

Learn to smile, nod and walk away

Sometimes the best thing you can do to save your sanity is to let all the chatter go in one ear and out of the other. Thank people for their great ideas instead of trying to get in to a discussion with them, and then when they leave continue to do things your way. Or as Taylor Swift so wisely says, “Shake it off, shake it off”.
