Isn’t your engagement a beautiful experience? The time when you acknowledge your commitment and love to the perfect partner, and when you look forward to being united in marital bliss. Every bride goes through this period where it seems unreal and too good to be true. But, once the reality sinks in, and it is time to plan and prepare for the wedding, it can cease being fun.
Engagement is the transition between being single and getting married, and as with any transition period, it too involves a fair share of stress. Most couples are so caught up with the hectic pace of planning their wedding, that they end up doing nothing else.
Is this the right way to start your marriage? Definitely Not!
Here is how you can enjoy yourself before the wedding, and make your engagement less stressful.
Plan ahead and do it well
Soon after you celebrate your engagement with your dear ones, begin planning the wedding. Fix a wedding date and split up all the tasks that are to be completed before it. Allot reasonable time for each task, and set your calendars to make sure they are done on time. This will allow you to work at a relaxed pace and get the work done without feeling overwhelmed.
Make sure you enjoy everything about the wedding planning
Whether it is shopping for your wedding dress, choosing your wedding cake or fixing the wedding venue, make sure that you are fully involved in the task. A major mistake that most couples make is that they take the tasks too seriously in the beginning and are exhausted by the end. Enjoy every aspect of what you do, and you will find yourself looking forward to the next one on the list.
Take a short break from the wedding
When everything seems to revolve around the wedding, it is time you break loose and take a day or two off. Spend a weekend at a nice destination. Make a decision that you will not discuss anything about the wedding during this short holiday, and it will help you unwind and rejuvenate yourself.
Make time for just the two of you
Don’t forget that you are in love and need to enjoy yourselves as a couple. Continue having dates and plan surprises for your partner, like you did before getting engaged. Find time to talk, discuss and have fun. Plan your honeymoon together, discuss your future and you will find yourself eagerly looking forward to your wedding day.
Enjoy time with family and friends
Relax and unwind with your favorite girlfriends once in a while. Spend time with your parents, and discuss your wedding plans with them. Not only will you receive plenty of suggestions this way, you will also benefit from the relaxed atmosphere.
Have fun watching wedding movies together
Spend your evenings together, watching romantic or fun wedding movies. This will help you and your partner appreciate this time in your life all the more. Pick up “Father of the Bride” or “The Wedding Singer” and enjoy some light comedy, before getting back to the rest of the wedding planning.
Enjoy your engagement, and make the best start to your life together. For all your wedding needs and valuable tips and wedding advice, visit us at Best for Bride.
