You’re excited to plan. And you have a lot of knowledge and skills to bring to the table when doing so.
Your big vision is truly impressive and sure to wow your guests…IF you can execute it with enough efficiency and poise, which I believe you can... but do you? 😳
Over-accommodative stuffing, while done with great intentions (I see you wanting to please everyone along the way to ensure they have a great time!) tends to have the opposite impact on you and your planning process, in turn breaking your boundaries and contributing to a negative mindset.
wedding planning has become a never-ending cycle of stress and to-do lists
WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE
The pressure to have a perfect wedding can absolutely take a toll on your mental health. Don't let it consume you - take the correct steps to prioritising your mindset and stay grounded throughout the planning process.
Neglecting your mental health can lead to a lack of sleep, poor decision-making, and even physical illness. You'll want to prioritize self-care during your wedding planning to avoid that dastardly burnout.
HOW IT WORKS
Brides who are overwhelmed with too much info to understand it all in one take... don’t have the ability to implement the information.
Those who don’t implement… see zero results from their inaction which leaves them putting off those dress alterations and avoiding the guest list like it's the plague. A negative mindset can cause a delay in making decisions, which can lead to last-minute stress and scrambling to finalise your plans with vendors and your support system.

TELL-TALE SIGNS YOU MAY NEED TO Simplify YOUR PLANNING PROCESS TO ACHIEVE A HEALTHIER OUTLOOK
Feeling constantly stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? Are physical symptoms starting to manifest such as headaches, difficulty sleeping, or even panic attacks? It's important to take a step back and evaluate whether you're taking on too much and if simplifying could alleviate some of that stress.
Relationships with loved ones becoming strained? It may be time to simplify. When you're juggling too many opinions and expectations, it can lead to conflicts and disagreements. Simplifying can help you prioritize what really matters to ensure that your relationships remain strong and supportive.
Weddings can be expensive. It's easy to get carried away with extravagant plans and purchases. Simplifying could mean cutting back on unnecessary expenses, reevaluating your budget, or even scaling back the size of the event. Ensure you're not starting your marriage with unnecessary stress.
Designing a lean, clean planning roadmap will allow you to scale and organise your wedding quicker and with more ease, in turn balancing out your mindset so that you can see those quick wins and take action easily.
Let's get you focusing on what truly matters to you and your partner, setting realistic goals and expectations, delegating tasks to trusted loved ones, and seeking out professional help when needed. Remember, a simplified wedding can still be a beautiful and meaningful celebration of your love!
We'll infuse that with mindset exercises that build more resilience, identify negative thought patterns, and replace them with more positive and empowering beliefs.
Each day, write down three things that you are grateful for, whether they are big or small. This exercise helps to shift your focus away from negative thoughts and towards positive ones, helping to build resilience and a more positive mindset.
This exercise involves repeating positive statements to yourself, such as "I am worthy," "I am capable," or "I am loved." This helps to reprogram negative self-talk and replace it with more positive and empowering beliefs.
This exercise involves imagining yourself successfully completing a goal or overcoming a challenge. Visualize the process and the outcome in vivid detail, using all your senses. This helps to build confidence and resilience, and can help you overcome obstacles in real life.

MEET THE EXPERT
MARRIAGE MENTOR & SERIALPRENEUR, KNOWN FOR GUIDING DIY BRIDES IN CRAFTING A WILDLY UNIQUE AND MAGICAL WEDDING DAY OF THEIR DREAMS.
Hi, I’m Nikki — founder of the bridal bible that is Wed-in-Bliss, and teddy bear terrier co-parent. Having planned my own lavish winter wedding in 2018, and after mentoring thousands of brides within our communities to build their dream day without overwhelm, it’s safe to say I’ve seen it all.
As brides most of us are so involved in our planning process that we’re simply too close to be able to pinpoint the #1 wedding wellness issue keeping us at a stalemate. (It’s not just you—trust me.) But where many go wrong is that once they’re able to identify the weak spot, they go into overdrive—trying to do everything all at once instead of taking intentional, strategic action in formulating a wellness regime to last far beyond your wedding day. But it can be hard to determine not only the best steps but also how to prioritize them when we're already so busy with the strategy side of planning a wedding.
That’s why my amazing Bridal Retreat coach, Melissa Maxwell, and I have created a brand new free masterclass giving you the proven roadmap to curating a wellness routine that's set up with your weak spot in mind.
