Wedding Decluttering 101

While most people do a gigantic Spring Cleaning during the actual Spring, I find that I get restless around this time of year and always feel the need to purge my home and mind of unwanted clutter and excess. There's something about the colder weather that makes me want to be undone of all the junk. Perhaps its because the holidays are near and its always a time of reflection. I find that the end of the year always signals thoughts of a renewed spirit and mind and home!

How can we apply this de-cluttering to your wedding planning? Very simply it turns out. Its so easy to get bogged down by all the details, inspiration, ideas and guests who inevitably will drive you crazy {"seriously, just mail back the RSVP card and yes, for the 1000th time, we have a wedding website that outlines everything you need to know ..."}. Regardless of how close the wedding day is, TAKE A BREAK! Decide to spend some week nights and weekends entirely wedding free. Don't think of anything wedding related. Forget the diet. Do anything else {perhaps whatever it was that you did before the wedding planning began ... if you can remember those days!} that will renew your mind and clear you of any undue stress. You can't think clearly and rationally if all you have is stressful thoughts that are taking up mental space. Treat your brain like a valuable piece of real estate ~ if it ain't paying rent, evict it.

How do you unwind and declutter?
