Yes we have all heard the stories of bridezillas. Some of us may have even met a few! A bridezilla is a woman who starts behaving erratically when her wedding day draws closer, frazzled by her never ending list of ‘things to do before the day’. The tips given in this article will be useful to you if you are on the verge of losing your mind due to the pressure that your wedding is putting on you!

Understand that it’s YOUR wedding day

Everyone gets terribly excited when a wedding day draws closer. They all start assuming that the poor bride needs to hear all the advice, tips, suggestions (and also the wedding horror stories) that they can think of. So they start getting unnecessarily involved with all the activities that ideally the bride and groom should be doing. They give their opinion about the type of dress you should wear, the venue you should host the reception at and wedding decorations that you should pick.

Before everything spirals out of control make sure you stand your ground and let everyone know that you will ask for help and advice when you need it. If you don’t do this, you will end up having someone else’s dream wedding instead of your own!

Delegate tasks to friends and family

Once you have chosen a handful of trusted people who will carry out your requests in a way that suits you, delegate tasks to them. Give them clear instructions about how you want things done and keep track of their progress as well. This will give you enough time to enjoy the wedding planning process more.

Hire the help of a wedding planner

Back in the day, when weddings were simple affairs that only the nearest and dearest were invited to, life was actually pretty easy. Nowadays weddings HAVE to be magical because you HAVE to post your wedding photos on all the social media platforms that you are active on. At least, that is what society wants you to think. So we go all out trying to work all the gorgeous décor elements that we have seen on Pinterest into our wedding ceremonies and get unnecessarily flustered.

If you think you really have to have a gala celebration, by all means enlist the help of a good event planner. These specialists, with their experience will be able to help you create a truly magical event.

Be reasonable and realistic

Stay sensible throughout the wedding planning process and stop expecting too much from yourself and others. It’s okay if your bridal dress isn’t designed by a top designer. It’s completely alright if you choose to have the wedding reception in a small garden and not at a glitzy hotel. Your wedding day is only the beginning of the most incredible journey that you are going to be taking with your beloved. The days, weeks, months and the years that follow are what matters. So take things easy. Chances are you won’t even remember some of the details that you are painstakingly looking into, in a few more years.

Have fun!

Above all, don’t forget to have fun! It’s your big day. You will be walking down the aisle to take the hand of your sweetheart to embark on an epic journey of a lifetime. So be excited about that, instead of obsessing about sequins on your flower girl’s dress!
