We get it – planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things, like, ever. On top of all that pressure to plan the perfect day (and to make your mother happy), sometimes the creative well dries up and original ideas become seemingly impossible. Being creative is difficult for a lot of people, but don’t worry – we are here to let you in on a little secret… it’s all going to be okay! Here are some of our hints on what to do when you get stuck in a wedding planning rut.
We Know It’s Hard, But Don’t Freak Out!
Obviously, we all can’t be creative and original ALL the time – it’s draining! Inspiration and ideas come in bursts, and that’s okay! Take advantage of your productive periods and don’t stress out when you’ve gone a few weeks stalking Pinterest with no new inspiration.
Do things that you enjoy! Go for a walk, get out in nature, hit the gym, paint, play video games – whatever puts you in your element. When you’re feeling like your best self, you will come up with more ideas that reflect who you and your fiancé are as a couple.
Plan It Out!
Take all your existing ideas and lay them out. It helps to organize your thoughts and clear your mind when you have everything in front of you! Create a moodboard, write down your wedding essentials and plans already in motion – you’ll feel way more accomplished and advanced in your planning to give you fuel to keep going!
Step Back and Look at the Big Picture!
Ultimately, remember what your wedding day is about – it’s a big party to celebrate the love that you have for your partner, surrounded by friends, family and good food. It’s easy to get sucked into the vacuum of planning, but if you break out of the details, even just for a few moments, you’ll be able to have a new perspective!
