I’m guessing “don’t sweat the small stuff” is just one of those quotes people pull out when asked for advice.  Are you trying to keep this advice in mind, but, to be honest, it’s not working? At all! 

Are you worried about all those wedding details? Are you a slave to your own to-do list?

For instance, do your worries sound a little like this:

  • How will we make sure our overnight bags make it to our wedding-night hotel room?
  • What happens if the venue forgets to put our cake-cutting knife on the cake table?
  • Where do we go after we enter the reception to our jazzy entrance song?
  • How will we ever get all of our wedding stuff (centerpieces, candy-buffet glassware, table numbers, etc.) to and from the venue without renting a U-Haul?
  • What do we do if our photo-booth backdrop is too big for the reception space?

Wedding Planning Stress

Are you sweating the small stuff?

I’m confident that your wedding day will be beautiful and wonderful, and at the end of the day you will be married, which is all you really want anyway.  But, you still have these worries running through your head constantly.  So I have some solid advice to ease your mind and relieve some of those worries.

Find a wedding planner or wedding day coordinator you trust.

They are there to take the stress away, fix problems that you won’t even know about, and to have a solution in their wedding emergency kit for every last minute worry you may have. Your wedding coordinator should worry about your day being perfect, so you don’t have to.

Let go and sleep.

Have you had those nights where you can’t sleep because you’ve got a million thoughts racing through your head, or you’re worried you’ll sleep through that alarm? Let go of all those thoughts and give them to your wedding planner. They can lose sleep the night before your wedding, not you. And the alarm thing? Your bridesmaids are a built in back up alarm. So just let go, and sleep.


It’s your wedding day, your dress fits, you can quit the diet! Have your planner provide a great breakfast for you and your bridesmaids. It doesn’t need to be a heavy waffles and pancakes type breakfast, but having yogurt, fruit, and eggs along with some tea or coffee is a great way to start your special day.

No one else matters (except your groom)

If you find yourself getting stressed out by family or friends, think of the one person that matters today – your groom. A quick phone call might just be the calming voice you need to hear.

Relax, soak in the entire day, and make sure you have a great photographer there to capture every moment.
