09 Mar How to keep the peace with your partner during the stress of wedding planning
If there is one thing that you will realise during wedding planning, it is that the entire process can be somewhat stressful.
There are so many things to think about, to budget for and of course decisions to make, that it can sometimes be completely overwhelming.
One area of your life that can really feel the stress of wedding planning is your relationship, which isn’t exactly ideal.
To help make sure that you stay friends even when wedding stress is getting on top of you, we have put together our guide on how to keep the peace.
Agree on finances upfront
Money can always cause arguments, and unfortunately when it comes to organising a wedding, money is something that you need to talk through.
It is important that you are both upfront with your own financial situations, as this can help you to plan for the wedding.
Not only this but it is also a good idea to try and discuss your expectations of your wedding as well as which things are important for you to spend out on.
Always pick your battles
Even the best couples can disagree from time to time and what they see as important for their wedding day is one area that can cause this.
The thing to remember when it comes to wedding planning is that sometimes you need to pick your battles (as well as think about when the timing is right).
If it is something that you really cannot bear to move on, then it might be worth fighting for.
However, if you have some wiggle room, then maybe it is the time to allow for it.
Remember that you have each other to lean on
It is all too easy to forget that the way you feel during wedding prep, is exactly how your partner will be feeling too.
Make sure that you remember you have each other to lean on, each other to talk to and each other to moan about how stressful it all is.
The worst thing that you can do is close up and not talk to one another.
Try and have fun
We have talked a lot about how stressful wedding preparation can be, but this doesn’t mean that it is all doom and gloom.
One of the best things that you can do is to try and have fun as much as you can.
Wedding prep is stressful, but it is exciting too.
It is something that you only get to do once so try and enjoy every single second.
Wedding prep will whizz by and in no time at all you will actually be waking up on the big day.
All that stress and strain will be long forgotten and you will be ready to start the rest of your lives together as husband and wife.
