5 Tricks for a Stress Free Wedding

Whether you live in Houston, Austin or San Antonio planning a wedding can be a hectic time. Here are 5 key tricks in helping to make your wedding as stress free as it can be...

 

1. Don't handle all the dirty work 

Delegate! Wedding coordinators are there to help make your planning process easier. They can confirm your vendors, make weather related decisions, assist with seating assignments, & any other last minute necessities. 

 

2. Wedding Entertainment

It's important you love the music being played at your reception. List the songs you have to hear prior to your big day via the wedding entertainments set list. Your band will be sure to construct a playlist to please everyone in the room at some point throughout the night. They should have a detailed timeline and the ability to execute all your customizations with the perfect flow.

 

3. Time is valuable 

Plan ahead & stretch out your wedding events to leave time to breathe prior to the big day.

 

4. Take care of yourself

Relieve stress and relax before walking down the aisle with an hour of early morning wedding yoga either a one on one session or you & all your bridesmaids. It's important to allow yourself a chance to step away from the hustle & bustle of prepping to go for a run, take a fitness class, read a book or meditate. 

 

5. Love the one you're with 

Don't lose sight of the reason you're planning a wedding to begin with.  Make time for each other & although you may be pulled in different directions on the big day, always find your way back to one another.  Love is all you need!
