It’s hard not to constantly think about your upcoming wedding. Combined with the excitement, anticipation and the one-hundred million tasks to complete, it’s on your brain 24/7. Even if you don’t realize it.
During these upcoming holidays we encourage you to take a break. A guiltless break, from planning your wedding. Here are a few reasons why:
- It’s Christmas! Hello? A time for giving and loving your fellow human being. Spend quality time with your family and friends. Donate time to charity….there are bigger things than your wedding and you will feel better for it.
- Give yourself a mental break. Don’t think about any details or to-do lists. The holidays are stressful enough without having this as just one more thing to worry or think about (see number 1).
- Enjoy talking about your wedding with your family. They will ask. But do NOT let anyone let you feel guilty that you haven’t found a DJ or picked out your dress. Just smile and excuse yourself to get another drink.
- Your brain is very much like a muscle. When you train/work out you have to let your muscles have a break in between the workouts so the muscle will respond better. Your brain is the same way. Relaxing your mind and compartmentalizing your planning will benefit you greatly. You’ll be more refreshed after taking time off and will probably be more productive!
So go pour some eggnog and play Chutes and Ladders with your three-year old niece. Enjoy the holidays, as we will!!!
planning…forever events studios will be closed from December 24-January 4th.
