With so many moving parts, it’s very common for a bride to enter into a season we’d like to call “The Wedding Planning Rut.” If feeling overwhelmed, put-out, irritable, and just overall frustrated describe your currentwedding planning state – we want to encourage you to keep reading today’s Wedding Wednesday blog post.
Many brides, near the end of theirseason of wedding planning, feel exhausted “just wishing it was over already.” Even if that’s you, we are here to help you spark new joy in your wedding planning while helping you look forward to what’s to come!
Experts always say that a little exercise can do the body some good!When you’re stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed a workout or a good run will give you just the push you’re needing to release some stress and keep pushing on.
Sometimes we just need to take a break and exert our energy elsewhere. Take a jog around your neighborhood, at a local park, or invite a friend to go to a workout class with you.
2. Get Outside
Fresh air can help you clear your mind and lighten your spirits after a down-troddenwedding planning season. Being outside in the fresh air, flowers, fallen leaves with birds all around – just the thought makes us want to go on a walk!
Whether it’s going on a walk, picnicking at a local park, strolling through a garden or nature center, or just sitting on a park bench reading your favorite book – being outside is sure to relieve your anxious wedding thoughts and give you that breath of fresh air you desperately need!
3. Write Down Your Goals
For us, we love the effect that old-fashioned paper and pen has on one’s soul. There’s just something sweet about tangibly writing down thoughts and goals.
If you’re feeling like you’re in a wedding planning rut, refresh your mind by taking pen to paper on your life goals. Here are a few goals to think about:
- Where do you want to be in 5 years? What about 10 years?
- Where is your dream vacation destination location and how can you take that trip in the next 5-7 years?
- Where do you want to be in your occupation in the next 10 years and how do you get there?
- What are some steps you can take today to get you where you want to be in 10 years?
Don’t let these questions scare you. They are meant to help you dream and actually accomplish those goals.
Taking a fresh perspective on your dreams and goals should make you feel energized and ready to jump into life. Remember, each decision you make today plays a small part in your overall story – this includes how you view wedding planning.
We want you to look back on your time as a bride-to-be and feel blessed by this sweet season!
Nothing beats some good old-fashioned rest. Take an afternoon nap, or force yourself to lay down and relax for at least thirty minutes.
Maybe even try a mind-clearing exercise such as meditation or yoga. In a world with so much hustle and bustle, many times all we need is to be still and sit quietly for a few minutes.
Whether it’s pursuing mental or physical rest, taking a break might just be what you need to push past your wedding planning rut.
5. Time Some Time Off Social Media
Social media can be a great thing when it comes to keeping you inspired for your big day, but sometimes a much needed break will help a girl out. Comparing your life to others (or someone else’s dream wedding day to your own), only ends up hurting you in the long run.
Make your wedding day especially yours. Don’t compare someone’s highlight reel to your everyday real life, and take a much needed social media break if you need to!
As stressful as it might feel sometimes, just remember that your wedding day is supposed to be a celebration of love. Don't let one day dictate the joy and love you will share for years to come!
