Once the engagement ring is on and the wedding day is being planned.. we get it…TIMES. ARE. STRESSFUL. As a result, you may find the most interesting temperaments arising around you, some from yourself that might shock even you.
Bridezillahood can creep up on anyone, so here’s a few tips we’ve learnt over the past few years in the bridal industry about how to NOT be a bridezilla in the lead up to your big day.
1 – ITS ABOUT LOVE NOT MONEY.
You’re getting married to the love of your life (hopefully) and that is the most important thing to remember. Budgets and expensive items are going to find you in the planning process, but you’ll find yourself a lot less stress if you keep the main thing the main thing. L-O-V-E.
2 – REMEMBER YOUR LOVER.
Just because your man popped a ring on your finger, doesn’t mean he vanishes until the wedding day. Keep going on dates. Keep enjoying the relationship and do your best to not talk about wedding planning EVERY time you’re together. He’s excited too, but don’t miss out on more wonderful relationship memories aiming for a day in the future.
3 – STAY FOCUSED.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed in the stress of it all. Every one has an opinion and wants to be a part of it, but remember who you’re marrying and why you’re marrying him. You’ll get there.
4 – THINK BEFORE YOU RAGE.
Again with the heightened emotions, don’t stress too much.. and try and think before you speak, organise or get mad at everyone helping you out. Remember that your bridesmaids and family are involved because they love you, they don’t have to be there and if you’re not careful you could run the risk of ruining relationships for a temporary tantrum. Be cool.
5 – CELEBRATE THE MILESTONES.
There are so many fun elements to plan and organise for a wedding so celebrate and enjoy each one. You’ll only be doing this once (hopefully) and as a result don’t wish the planning process away, embrace it, enjoy in and make the most of it for you and yours.
So there you have it, some great ideas to keep in mind to lower the risk of Bridezilla you raising her ugly head.
