and what the weather might be like on the day of your outdoorwedding can stack up and take a great deal of time and energy. But it doesn’thave to be this way. Work together to plan a low-stress wedding, which is trulysomething to celebrate.
1. Keep it Simple
If you are planning a wedding on a budget, you are probablyleaning toward simplicity anyway. Brainstorm together about how to focus on aceremony that celebrates your love without all of the expensive and stressful trappings.Think about choosing a simple ring,simple food, and a simple ceremony.
2. Focus on Love
Don’t let wedding stress take away from your love for eachother. Split up the wedding tasks equitably. Plan regular couple time leadingup to the wedding, and after the wedding, make time just to have fun or beromantic or reconnect without discussing centerpieces
or any other weddingdetails.
3. Take Time for You
Even if you are consciously planning a low-stress wedding together,there are times when it can still be stressful. Make sure that in addition tominimizing stress and maximizing couple time, you also spend time withyourself. If wedding stress is getting
to you, make time for meditating, deepbreathing, praying, yoga, or any other calming practices that are helpful toyou. Be sure to eat right, get plenty of exercise, seek out fresh air andsunshine, and get enough sleep. Take bubble baths. Spend time
journaling. Maintainyour hobbies and your friendships rather than getting too wrapped up inplanning a wedding on a budget.
