Work as a Team
A husband and wife are an incredible team, and that teamwork doesn't have to wait until after you say "I do" to begin. Make a promise to each other that you will tackle all of those wedding planning tasks together. They will get done twice as quickly, plus there is a better chance both of your styles will be represented in the final look and feel of the event.
The people in your wedding party and family members that you can rely on are wonderful additions to your team too. There are lots of things that need to get done before the big day, and the more hands helping, the less you have to worry about. If they're willing to help, let them.
Trust Your Vendors
Another important part of your wedding planning team are the vendors that you hire. Even though you may not have known them before you started planning the wedding, these people are professionals and know what they are doing. If you didn't like their work or had a strange feeling about them, you probably would have hired someone else. Let yourself trust your vendors' suggestions. You don't have to allow them to change your mind about things that are important to you, but they will have some great ideas that are worth considering.
Have an Organization Plan
The more organized you are, the easier it will be to get everything done. Keep every bit of your wedding information and ideas all in one place. Have a binder put together with important contact information, brochures, magazine photos you like, and other paper items, and keep that binder in a place that you and your fiance always have access to it. Also keeping all of that information in a shared file on your computer or in a wedding app makes it easy for you to add to and access the information you need no matter where you are, plus there is no chance of misplacing an app.
Strive to tackle a set amount of tasks each day. When you have free time, check that binder to see if there are any quick items on your to-do list that can be accomplished. Multi-task when possible, like stuffing and addressing invitations while you watch TV.
One big item on your to-do list is making the guest list. You may dread having to pick and choose who will be invited to your wedding, but know that once that list is complete, you will know the size of the wedding you are planning for and be able to make a lot of other decisions. Every time you mark an item off of your list, it's going to make another item on that list easier to accomplish.
Stick to Your Budget
Promise yourself to stick as closely as possible to the wedding budget you decided on. Nothing can ruin the memory of a wonderful wedding faster than a stack of bills waiting after the celebration that will take you much longer to pay off than you planned for.
Creativity, imagination, and talented wedding vendors can create an exquisite wedding at an affordable price. After all, the goal of the day is to marry the person you love, and years from now the size of your centerpieces probably won't matter to you at all. Pick the parts of the wedding that you care most about and spend your budgeted money there, and when it comes to the things that don't really matter to you, don't spend what you don't have to.
Enjoy the Process
The very best thing that you can do for yourself is to remember to have fun and enjoy every moment of this time in your life. When you start to feel overwhelmed, remember the big picture. At the end of this entire process, you get to spend the rest of your life with the person you love most!
If you find yourself stressing out, take a break. Even better, take a break with your fiance to remind each other why you are doing this in the first place. Don't sweat the small stuff either. If the napkins are only available in ivory instead of white, it's not going to ruin your day. Small things like what your guests will be wiping their mouths on really won't even be noticed by most people. Laugh it off and smile because, hey, you're getting married! Nothing should be able to ruin the joy of that.
Having a few moments of stress here and there are probably unavoidable, but make a promise to yourself that when that happens you will take a step back, take a deep breath, remember the reason for it all, smile, and move on.
