How to Overcome Wedding Stress
Exciting as a wedding is, it can be daunting too and brings its own set of challenges. How do you remain in control of all the arrangements and commitments without losing your cool? How do you stop yourself from being lackluster and so stressed you want to give up on all your original plans for your wedding and just elope? For most couples, a wedding comes with a hefty share of financial fretting too, so how does one overcome wedding stress so that you can enter into the spirit of this big event relaxed and care-free?
Don’t let wedding angst take over. During this trying period, try letting go of being superwoman at this time and take on a highly recommended wedding planning team, like us here at Porche Weddings. The first thing you’ll want to do is, schedule a consultation to meet with your planner, discuss where you need help, what you can and can’t do, and what you envision for your special day. If you decide you do want to take on some of the workload, then it’s ok. Remember, wedding planners, like us, offer customized services, so we can do everything from the time you say “yes” to the time you say “I do” or something a little more part time. Once you hire your wedding planner, you’ll be able to adopt a calmer, slower pace with our help and find that you are actually able to get more done.
Little tips that can help overcome wedding: effective de-stress techniques
● Tea has always been one heck of a stress reliever. Blend cloves, ginger, honey and cinnamon in boiling water, steep for a few minutes and drink. Perfectly soothing.
● In the center of your chin is a nerve- and blood circulation area – press and rotate this area for just 1 minute. Also, work on reflex points in your hands, temples and feet. This will not only relax you but, your body will release endorphines, which cause you to be more happier.
● An Epsom salt bath with 2 drops of lemon essential oil or eucalyptus oil is super for easing stress.
