How to get ready for a wedding and not go crazy

Stress, unforeseen accidents, overzealous family – all this can turn the preparations for the wedding from a pleasant expectation into a real nightmare. How can we not afford to spoil this special day?
Let’s not fool ourselves – you can’t survive the preparations for your wedding without a little bit of nerves. The enormous responsibilities that falls on us, the desire to please each of our guests, after all, which can appear from time to time, think about whether we are sure we make the right decision – there is no shortage of opportunities for mood breaks. The most important thing, however, is that after every doubt comes even greater joy from the adventure waiting for us, and this crowning period of preparation day was full of only positive emotions. We suggest how to survive this demanding time, so as not to get neurosis until the wedding day.
Become a lady of your calendar
Probably not every one of us is a fan of plans, charts and written to the brim of calendar pages, but for this occasion each of us should become one. Planning for such a big event as a wedding reception is the best guarantee that we will not wake up with panic two days before the wedding, remembering about the unsolicited bouquet to the church.
The first point on the list of wedding duties is, of course, to choose a date and book it both in the place where the wedding is to take place and in the church. At the same time it is worthwhile to start looking for a photographer and, if there is a place for him in your plans, a cameraman – the best ones often have a schedule filled in for a year or even two years ahead. The next, probably the most pleasant point on the list of prenuptial tasks is the choice of wedding dress. Remember that a wedding dress salon in a city or city may not accept an order if it is placed later than approx. 4 months before the wedding. The safest way to find a dress is to go 6-8 months before the wedding. A little later the groom may choose to go shopping, but in his case it is better not to wait too long.
You can postpone the next tasks, i.e. choosing invitations, transport to the church, wedding bouquet or church decoration for further months. Ideally, you should write them all down exactly with the dates by which you have to arrange them. And before each date, set yourself a weekly reminder so that you don’t feel like you’re doing something at the last minute.
Arrange your priorities
The need to make everyone happy is in us deeper than we are willing to admit. Therefore, when the fiancĂ©’s mother begs us to invite her aunt and uncle, whom the fiancĂ© hasn’t seen before, but it’s no different, we’ll probably agree to it. And then we will spend half a night trying to put everyone in such a position that no one, after the fourth round, in retaliation for old stories, threw themselves down the throat of their neighbor.
The concessions and efforts are in order until they obscure the needs of the most important people at this party – you. So if you have nowhere else to put a third-degree cousin with her husband and three children – stomp your foot. If your uncle tells you that no one will want to play with your music – order his favourite song for him and forget about what he said. You won’t make everyone happy anyway – someone will be offended because they are sitting further away from the table of the bride and groom than another person, someone will complain about air conditioning, and someone else will come out in the middle of the wedding, because their other half will overestimate the strength of their head when faced with alcohol. You will not avoid certain events and it is best to accept in advance that they will take place, to observe them later only with a little bit of satisfaction that you have predicted everything.
One last piece of advice: be happy. Every purchase (don’t look at your account after them), every guest who wants to spend this time with you, every moment of this special day. If everything goes well – the second one won’t happen again, so get everything you can out of it.
