07 Apr How To Limit Your Wedding Planning Fall Outs
It is no secret that planning your wedding is stressful.
After all the romance and excitement of your engagement, the time has come to actually focus on getting to it and sorting out money and other aspects of your big day.
Some parts are still quite exciting and can bring you together as a couple, but you are also likely to find yourselves feeling stressed out and more than just a little frazzled during the proceedings.
This can lead to arguments, and cross words, which you wouldn’t usually have as a couple.
So, with this in mind we have put together so top tips to help you maintain your couple goals whilst wedding planning takes its toll on you both.
Respect one another
Despite being a couple, you are still two different people and you are likely to have different opinions on approaches for your big day.
The important thing to remember is that you should always respect one another, that you should listen to what the other has to say and always treat each other kindly.
If there is something that one of you finds really important, but that the other doesn’t, then try to find a compromise.
The last thing that you should do when you are finding wedding planning a strain is to stop communicating.
You need to always find the time to talk to one another, using one another as a sounding board when you are feeling stressed out.
Don’t let your family get involved
One of the biggest stress factors that can cause an issue during your wedding planning is your family.
Family members, particularly parents, like to have their own say on some of the parts of your wedding, and as they are often contributing to the day financially, you are likely to think that you should listen to them.
This can cause arguments between you both, particularly if the problematic family member is on the other side.
Take a break from wedding planning
Wedding planning can drain you both and if you find that you are falling out on a regular basis, then you may want to make an effort to take a break from it all.
It could be one day, one weekend or perhaps one week, whatever you need.
The important thing is that you spend some time enjoying one another’s company, rather than talking about weddings.
Wedding stress is real and it can have a huge impact on you both as a couple.
The important thing to think about is to take the time to remember what made you want to get married in the first place and in no time at all you will forget all those things that could be causing you both a headache.
