Tips on Tuesday: Take Break for Safety's Sake!

Its really easy to get all consumed by the wedding planning process you are going through. There are a million blogs, magazines and websites to gather ideas / images and advice from. There will always seem like there is something to be working on regarding the wedding: refining the guest list, going through the budget, pulling together DIY projects for your favors - the list goes on and on. At some point, your wedding will probably be the predominant topic of every conversation.

What you need to do is take a break from all the wedding planning. STOP reading everything on the internet about weddings and talk about something else. Catch up on your favorite TV shows, go to the gym because you want to be healthy not to fit into a dress, talk to your bridesmaids about their lives - do whatever it takes to not do a single thing related to the wedding.

Taking a break will actually help your wedding planning because being able to step away for a few days / weeks will give you clarity and will bring you back to the process with a fresh, clear mind. Relaxation throughout this process is key to not letting it drive you nuts.

So, if anyone asks why you suddenly aren't only talking about the wedding, you can tell them that I told you to take a break!
