Whether you just got engaged or are already one month away from walking down the aisle, wedding planning can add tons of stress to your everyday life. When you're feeling overwhelmed, it's easy to turn into the dreaded "b" word: bridezilla, that is. That's why we're here with some helpful reminders that'll help you keep your cool when things get tough. Say them out loud if you have to!

"Something is going to go wrong."

And that's okay. A vendor could be a no-show, or a groomsman could forget a piece of his tux. Whether the situation is big or small, at the end of the day, you're still going to get married. Try to keep an open mind and not stress over the little details. At the end of the day, you still get to get married. Your guests won't know if the escort cards look different than you initially wanted, and striving for total perfection will only make you feel crazy.

 

"Be grateful for those around me."

In the months leading up to your wedding and on the big day itself, everyone around you will be trying their hardest to help make your wedding day amazing. Be grateful for that! If they mess something up or fall short to your expectations, try to be graceful and forgive. These people could be doing a hundred different things, but they're choosing to support you and your love. That's pretty incredible when you stop and think about it.

 

"Be enjoyable."

No one likes to be bossed around, and the people you probably enjoy spending time with most are happy and kind. When you're being passive aggressive and throwing a temper tantrum, no one wants to be near you. Create beautiful memories with your friends, family, and vendors, both in the months before the wedding and on the big day.
