With weddings, we know there are no do-overs. That’s what makes being a wedding planner and part of the wedding industry in general challenging. There’s a lot at stake for your client’s wedding–and you want to make sure you get it right. But with that responsibility, you’ll find yourself dealing with wedding planning stress.

I was a wedding planner for over 12-years, and during my time working with clients, I've faced every stressful situation imaginable. Perhaps the most challenging part about being a wedding planner is knowing that everything is *not* within your control… but you feel a personal responsibility to help, manage, and fix all of it.

How do you manage wedding planning stress? Whether you're on the ground at an event or dealing with an unforeseen issue in the planning process… Let’s talk about it.

Beat Wedding Planner Stress by Changing Your Soundtrack

When we’re stressing about something, it’s easy to let that stress consume our thoughts. Whether you’re dealing with a client issue or a problem that needs handling, a soundtrack can quickly emerge inside your head–and it’s all you can think about.

Those thoughts come roaring through your mind. Thoughts like…

“What am I going to do next?”

“Is my client going to be pissed? What if they blame me for this?”

“How can I solve this problem?”

Your thoughts can quickly spiral out of control when you're stressed. Instead of letting your anxiety and stress consume you, change your soundtrack. Find a way to focus on something else for a while. Load up your favorite podcast, listen to music, or read something uplifting. I love going for a workout when I'm feeling stressed or when my thoughts are getting the best of me.

Switch up your environment and change your soundtrack. Then, come back with a fresh perspective.

Call On Past Experiences To Combat Wedding Planner Stress

This isn't your first rodeo, even if it is your first wedding.

You’ve been here before. It doesn’t feel like it, but you have. And that’s because you’ve done hard things in your life–and you will do them again. Take a moment and remember the last time you dealt with a tricky situation. You’re still here, right? Right.

When wedding planning stress hits, remember that you're a boss who's handled things in the past. You figured it out, moved past it, and have lived to tell the tail.

Combat Wedding Planner Stress By Finding Your Gratitude

This might sound hokey, but it works. Take five minutes to write down what you’re grateful for today. List out all the good things in your life and your career that bring you happiness. Finding your gratitude can help you see the bigger picture.

In moments of stress or as the anxiety of your job builds, gratitude for the good will always keep you ground. It helped me in some of the most stressful situations I've ever experienced, and I know it'll help you.

Hold up – are you looking for some extra support to combat the wedding season craziness and stress?
