Not everyone is a good planner. Many people prefer to wing things, or they’d like to say, “fake it till you make it.” Unfortunately, one does not simply wing a wedding. Doing so will only spell trouble! When forced to plan, feelings of anxiety can easily fill the air, leading to the so-called “planxiety.”

So, if you constantly find yourself filled to the brim with anxiety trying to plan for your wedding, what can you do? Is there a way to help ease the mind a little, or do you have to deal with it? Indeed, there is, and today, we’re going to share with you a few tips on what you can do to address your wedding planning anxiety:


1. Reach Out Creatively

By now, we’re sure that you’ve reached out to numerous vendors trying to get a response. However, if you’ve found that little to none have responded to you, it’s most likely because they’re already busy and booked. Those that may have responded to you, on the other hand, may have sent you an email or responded via voicemail. 

What should you do in either scenario? First, we recommend that you reach out to the vendors via social media like Facebook or Twitter. Comment or message them about how you are trying to reach them. If their location is near you, consider dropping by. Even if they are booked to the brim, you may at least get a picture of their availability and make your plans accordingly.


2. Thoroughly Read All Contracts

You might feel rushed or pressured to sign a contract with a vendor, especially if you’ve spent countless hours trying to look for a vendor to work with. However, no matter how pressured you may feel, always slow down and take the time to read the contract carefully.

The last thing you want to deal with when signing a contract is to sign a contract that doesn’t meet your expectations or needs! For example, in a rush, you may have agreed to a contract that offers you a wedding venue that’s too small. Mistakes such as these are costly and difficult to fix, so take your time and get it right the first time around.


3. Reach Out to a Professional Wedding Planner

Don’t worry if you truly feel burdened about the whole wedding planning process and do not feel like you can get anything right. There are professionals out there who have done this many times, and all you need to do is reach out to them.

Professional wedding planners exist for a reason: people need help planning. Planning a wedding is incredibly stressful, and when people feel stressed, they aren’t happy. This isn’t the point of a wedding now. A wedding is supposed to be a happy time, and even in the planning phase should the couple enjoy the moments together. A professional will lift this burden for you, ensuring that your dream wedding comes to reality without you having to deal with anxiety.



All in all, when you plan for your wedding, get creative with the way you communicate with the vendors and take the time to set up proper contracts that will leave you happy and satisfied. Otherwise, reach out to professional wedding planners to ease your burdens to allow you to focus on enjoying your loved one's company and look forward to that beautiful wedding day! Finally, through all your efforts, remember this: don’t forget to have fun! After all, the wedding is about you and your loved one, and you should be enjoying each and every moment before, during, and after the wedding.
