Today I’m sharing my approach to wedding planning. In the past, I’ve shared my tips for staying organized during this progress, but today I thought I would share my philosophy. Taking one thing at a time!
To be honest, this is somewhat a fiancé dictate. Through this process, Rich has been really good about keeping me in line. Within the first three days, I had already booked the church, venue and rehearsal dinner location. I also became very stressed and overwhelmed. From that point on, it was very clear, I had to take it one thing at a time!
Most girls dream about a huge, fairy tale wedding but in reality these things take a lot of effort to plan! Plus, there’s the budget. Imagine throwing a dinner party for ten, now imagine that times twenty. Also, trying to do this with as least money as possible. That’s what I am working with!
It’s hard not to get overwhelmed, but I have been forcing myself to take things one thing at a time.
This week I’ve done the following:
-order stamps for the save the dates
-sign up for our Pre Cana retreat weekend at church
-start addressing the save the dates
-sent my shower and bridesmaid guest list to my Aunts and MOH
These things weren’t overwhelming when done one by one. But, it all adds up. And just like anything else, just take steps forward and eventually you’ll get there!
So, if you are married, what type of wedding planning philosophy did you have? Or if you aren’t married, how do you tackle overwhelming tasks?
