While shooting my past two engagement sessions both brides commented to me how they are tired and slightly overwhelmed by everything they have been reading on the wedding blogs the frequent.
One bride mentioned that she can’t wait for “a stamp to just be a stamp again.” (Rather than something she has to pick out, plan colors for, order hundreds of, and stick on envelopes.) The other said she can’t wait for her wedding to be over so she does not have to keep checking them.
I have never planned a big wedding and I’m sure these sites contain a wealth of knowledge. There really are so many little things that go into a wedding that it’s nice to get advice from those who have been there before. Having said that, let me give you one tip.
Stop reading wedding blogs.
Even this one.
Seriously. Take a step back. Just be engaged. It’s supposed to be fun.
There is a season and time for everything. There is a time to plan and a time to enjoy. I know that planning can be enjoyable, but if you find yourself getting frustrated of overwhelmed by what you “should” be doing then maybe it’s time to take a little break. Try this. Take a week off. For one whole week don’t visit a wedding related site for any reason. If and only if the world continues to spin, feel free to check back in after 7 days.
Happy planning and I’ll see you tomorrow.
