I firmly believe every bride needs a decent break from wedding planning. Don’t leave everything to the last minute, but don’t be nervous when you find there are certain things that can only be decided and executed a few weeks before your big day. Image saturation is everywhere, in the wedding world in particular it’s easy to change the style or look you’ve settled on based on one image or a recent blog post. Being purposeful with what images you look at and how often, will stop you from making decisions based on trends.
Breathing room is a part of being purposeful. Less is not a scary concept nor does it mean you’re out of control. Purposefully switching off from image saturation, planning and wedding talk gives your brain a chance to look beyond your wedding day, and become settled in the day to day of the process.
Set aside one morning or afternoon a week to do wedding stuff. The rest of the time, make a conscience effort not to get too absorbed in the wedding world. I’ve found that making a conscious effort to breathe allows me to settle in the process and it opens my eyes to inspiration.
