7 Rules for Brides
March 10th, 2014
When you start planning your wedding, it's easy for things to quickly spiral out of control.
Your intentions are good; you want this day to be perfect.
Letting the little details get to you, though, can make the process stressful and exhausting instead of fun.
Use these seven rules for brides to help you keep things in check.
1. Don't have unrealistic expectations about your weight. Choose a dress that fits you now and looks great on you at your regular weight. Adding a diet to your already packed schedule while you are planning a wedding is asking for trouble. You don't need to be hungry and cranky while you are arguing with your future mother-in-law or trying to finalize seating charts. You might drop a few pounds just because you are busy, but look at that as a bonus, not a requirement.
2. Don't get hung up on extravagant details. You can easily spend a fortune on high-end details, like exotic flowers and custom invitations. The truth is that many of those super expensive details will go unnoticed by the majority of your guests. Choose the items that mean the most to you, and devote your budget to those things. Forget trying to replicate a wedding magazine or impressing a wealthy friend.
3. Don't force your bridesmaids to dress in identical outfits head to toe. Your girls do a lot to support you on this big day, so give them a little leeway to finish off their look with their own personal style. Go ahead and choose the dresses for everyone, but let them pick out their own shoes, jewelry, and hairstyle. You'll still get a cohesive look for your wedding, but with a little bit of style and personality in the mix.
4. Don't feel compelled to invite everyone you've ever met. The guest list can easily get out of control, and you don't want to look back at your wedding album in ten years and be unable to identify the people in the pictures. You certainly don't need to invite every person that your friends or family members are currently dating; you may never see those people again. Set a rule, perhaps that you only invite someone's significant other if they are engaged or have been dating for more than a year.
5. Step away from the wedding registry. Thanks to online registration, you have the opportunity to obsess over your wedding registry until the very day that you get married. Don't do it. Give yourself a deadline, and then don't allow yourself to look at the registry again after that date. You will have plenty of other things to do.
6. Write thank you notes as you receive the gifts. It only takes a few minutes to write out your thank you notes if you do each one as soon as you receive the gift. Keep your stationery and some stamps out on your desk, and try to send out the thank you note within a couple days of receiving the gift. If they pile up and you have to do 50 at a time, it's much worse.
7. Don't torture yourself about the bachelor party. Make plans of your own that night, and go out and have a good time. Don't sit at home wondering what he's doing. Remember, he chose you.
