It’s a New Year: 2012! And for most of us, this means making a New Year’s resolution or two. For brides planning a wedding, the very best New Year’s resolution you can make is one that will make your wedding the very best it can be. Fortunately, there are a few New Year’s resolutions with practical tips you can get started with immediately, to create that beautiful wedding of your dreams. Here are some popular bride New Year’s resolutions:
“I will be more organized with my wedding planning.”
Now this is a very popular New Year’s resolution for brides. There are so many big and little details with planning a wedding – and every detail is very important to making your wedding be as perfect as it can be. For most of us, your wedding will be probably the largest special event you plan. So it’s no surprise that it can be a bit overwhelming at times to manage all of that organization!
Try getting a wedding organizer. You can buy one or create your own with a binder from the stationary store. Choose a large one with pockets that you can put receipts in. Get folders to put important information in.
One of the biggest tips to being organized is keeping all of your wedding information in a single place. Take steps now to coordinate all of your wedding information into one, single location like your wedding binder. Simply doing this will take dramatic improvements to helping you stay and get organized.
“I will not be a Diva bride.”
It can be so tempting sometimes to be a Diva bride. We see brides throwing temper tantrums on television, or in the movies. And sometimes the stress and pressure of planning a wedding can truly get you to that breaking point. But it’s the savvy bride who knows how to manage her stress before she makes unreasonable demands like a Diva.
Learn to delegate. No bride can do it all. The biggest secret to delegation is to find projects that suit people’s best skills. Don’t put your future father in law in charge of flowers for the reception if he doesn’t know the difference between a tulip and a daisy. Give him a project that suits his skills and watch him excel.
Plan – and stick to – your own distress plan. Every bride needs to take a bit of time for herself, no matter how busy her schedule is. Actually if you say “I’m too busy,” that’s a sign you need a little time to yourself more than ever! Get exercise, read a book, do a craft or something else you enjoy. Even 20 minutes a day can make a big difference to your stress levels.
“My wedding will be perfect.”
Now this is tricky, because we’ve added in this bride’s New Year’s resolution…to remind you that many brides actually do make this as their New Year’s resolution, but that no wedding is truly perfect. There are many beautiful, lovely weddings that the happy couple will always remember. But very few “perfect” weddings.
Try not to make this as your bride’s New Year’s resolution, because it is one that is almost guaranteed to disappoint you. Most brides will tell you of one or two small (or even big!) snags in their wedding, but that they still had a terrific wedding. A terrific wedding is something every bride should dream of, not a “perfect” one.
Wishing you a Very Happy New Year, brides!
