7 New Year's Wedding Resolutions For The Newly Engaged

New year, new ring?

If you’re just starting your wedding planning process, then you’ve come to the right place! Wedding planning can be tough work, but sticking to these New Year’s wedding resolutions can help keep your head straight as you make it to the big day.

Enjoy Being Engaged

With the madness of planning, it’s easy to get caught up in everything. Don’t forget to bask in the newly engaged glow and get excited about saying I do to your soon-to-be.

Take Care of Yourself

As you balance wedding planning, appointment after appointment, work, and life in general, don’t forget to look after number one! Your health matters, so eat right and get enough sleep. Maybe your goal is to get fit for the big day or just enhance your lifestyle with some healthy choices, either way, dedicate the time you need to take care of yourself while you plan the day of your dreams.

Treat Your Support System with Kindness

Let’s be real…No one wants to deal with a bridezilla or groomzilla! As you stress over every tiny detail of the big day, remember to take a deep breath and try to avoid taking your frustrations out on the ones you love. Whether it be your fiancé, your mam, or the wedding party, remember they have their own lives too. The world does not revolve around your upcoming wedding (sorry!!). You want this one special day to be perfect and treating your loving support system with appreciation and gratitude as they help in the process will only make it more enjoyable for everyone.

Plan The Day YOU (and Your Spouse) Want

Throw out all the ideas you had about a traditional by the book wedding, these days the most memorable weddings come from the heart. There’s also no need to please the voices around you telling you what you should or shouldn’t do. At the end of your big day, it only matters that you and your bride or groom had the day that you wanted.

Stay Organized & Practice Time Management

Make your life easier by setting aside time to plan each week. This will help you create a game plan and use your time more wisely. Try not to let tasks pile up as you near the big date, you’ll be thanking yourself later! Another helpful tip is to create a new email address to use for all wedding related correspondence.

Take Part in the Day You Spent Time Planning

Most couples are so caught up in making sure everything is perfect on the day that they don’t actually let themselves enjoy it. Don’t be that couple. Trust you venues, suppliers, and the team around you that have helped you get to the big day. Things may go wrong on the day, but it’s not the end of the world. Just be in the moment and don’t forget to have some cake!

Stay Positive Through the Ups & the Downs

No one said wedding planning was easy, and you will run into a couple of obstacles. But sticking to some if not all of these resolutions will help you overcome anything that gets thrown in your way. Just remember the light at the end of the tunnel – Your wedding day!
