The Secrets to Staying Focused Before Your Wedding
How many people have told you that planning a wedding is the most stressful thing they have ever done in their life?
Want to know the simple secrets to help remove your wedding day anxieties?
If you do, then just keep reading...
Over the next few blog posts I will give you the tools and secrets that I have discovered as a Wedding Planner to stay focused on the essentials in order to have a stress free wedding day.
I will teach you what you can do in order to help remove the chaos and pressure that can pile up before the "I Do's"…ok…ready…here we go!
Hire a Wedding Planner…ok so you’re probably thinking, Yea Alicia, we saw that one coming! But in all honesty…if you want to remove the stress…hire a wedding planner.
Let me break this down a little more for you. A good wedding planner is typically birthed from a natural sense of organizational skills combined with highly anal retentiveness to details and intricacies. (Sorry to all you other planner out there, but this is just a fact for most of us - ha-ha).
On the good side, this means that we are naturally great at running things and taking charge of the show. Meaning, when you take us into the planning of your big day, you can rest assured that WE are more than capable of seeing your vision and dreams come to life! We simply have the gifts needed to execute these types of events.
As a wedding planner, it comes naturally to me to see what needs to be done and then DO IT. My many years in the corporate world have taught me how to use my organizational and delegation skills to help couples realize the desires they have for their special day.
Hiring someone like myself, will give you that peaceful wedding day you yearn for, remove the stress and worry from your special moments and allow you to be solely focused on marrying the love of your life.
Leading up to the wedding day there will be a lot of mess in the planning. Now, I could spend the next few sentences listing them all out, but I won’t bore you with the details that make my work life excitingJ. I’ll only tell you this. Ask someone you know who recently got married how the planning and organizing went leading up to the wedding day and see the look on their faces as they recount the many hours spent agonizing over the MANY little headaches that came along with the planning. (If they used a planner, then watch for the giddiness and smiles that follow your question ha-ha…).
I want to prepare you the best way that I can. Not all wedding planning is fun and easy. Even if you are naturally skilled in it. Without the aid of a wedding planner, like myself, you will stumble forward and be confused by many aspects of this journey.
BE PREPARED…have someone on your side who talks the talk and walks the walk with other vendors. This is so valuable.
BE PREPARED…have someone who can speak up for you when you’re feeling so overwhelmed you can’t focus on any more details.
BE PREPARED…have someone who will pick you up and brush you off when it gets hard.
BE PREPARED…have someone who will take the stress away from the planning and allow you and your fiancé to focus on the most important thing before the wedding day, YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
So…what’s the best secret of all…I think you might have guessed it…employ a professional planner. No matter if it’s just for the wedding day or from the engagement onward, that person will help alleviate the pressure and worry in planning the wedding your heart’s desire.
