01 Jun Feeling the bridal blues? Here are the things you can do to help improve your mood
Whilst planning a wedding is amazing, exciting and a whole lot of fun, it is also one of the most stressful things that you can do.
Weddings are expensive, which can lead to concerns about money, they involve lots of people, which can lead to people pleasing issues and they also come with a whole host of big decisions too, which can leave you feeling anxious and unsure about your choices.
All of these things can come together to create a feeling of being down, being blue and being, well, completely over the entire thing, not exactly what you should feel when you are planning the most important day of your life.
Rather than accepting that it is just the way it is, we have put together our top tips on how to beat the bridal blues.
Remember that everyone will have an opinion, but you don’t have to listen to them
One thing that you will quickly realise about your wedding day is that everyone, and we mean everyone, will have an opinion on things that you should do.
In the most part these people mean well and they will simply see it that they are helping you to make an important decision on your big day.
The important thing to remember is that just because everyone has an opinion that they want to share, you don’t have to listen to them, you still need to be polite and smile and nod at the person, but you don’t have to act on them if you don’t want to.
The process of planning a wedding can be much more emotional than you realise
Many brides and grooms think that planning a wedding is all full of smiles and happiness and that is true in the most part.
However, it is important to remember that the process of planning a wedding can be incredibly emotional too.
You are, after all, moving from your single life into one with a life-long partner and that can be pretty overwhelming when you stop and think about it.
Couples can stop spending time together
One common issue during a run up to a wedding is that the couples will simply stop spending as much time as they used to with one another.
They will be so focused on wedding planning and prep, that any spare time they do have quickly gets eaten up.
This means that there is no time for dates, no time for going out together, no couple time, which is going to leave you both feeling neglected and more than just a little bit sad.
It may sound obvious but it is really important that you do your best to take a step back and really try and enjoy your wedding day.
Sure, it is stressful and sure it is expensive, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t take the time to enjoy it and really relish in all the excitement.
Remember that you are not only planning a wedding, but you are also planning the first day of the rest of your lives together and that is pretty awesome for any couple.
