Developing your Wedding Mindset
As with anything, mindset is key to being the calmest and best version of yourself through your wedding planning and your wedding day itself. You are in control and can choose whether to have a positive or negative mindset about your wedding.
The mind is very powerful and it is your thoughts alone that can accompany you through the process. If you have a negative mindset, you are more likely to have negative feelings and thoughts towards your wedding and consequently behave in a more negative way. If you have a positive mindset, you are more likely to have positive feelings and thoughts towards your wedding. The way in which you approach your wedding planning and wedding day can dictate your whole experience.
Examples of a Positive Wedding Mindset
- I’m so excited to be engaged to the partner I love.
- I’m excited about planning the best day of our lives.
- I can’t wait to share the day with all our friends and family.
- We’re going to plan our perfect wedding within a sensible budget that we can afford
- After the wedding we’re going to have an incredible, relaxed honeymoon to celebrate becoming newlyweds
Examples of a Negative Wedding Mindset
- I love my partner but being engaged will be so stressful as people tell us how to plan our wedding.
- Planning the wedding is going to be so time consuming and stressful.
- The thought of inviting friends and family I don’t like makes me resent the wedding.
- Nothing ever goes right so the wedding will be a disaster and cost us way too much money.
- I can’t wait to get the wedding out of the way and get a holiday, if we can afford it.
Even the most positive person has to admit that there are always hurdles to deal with when planning a wedding so, in order to keep you calm, positive and guarantee you enjoy the wedding planning process as much as the day itself we need to find a realistic middle ground with our mindset that remains positive but also acknowledges and embraces the possible challenges and deals with them in a productive and constructive way.
Examples of a Realistic Wedding Mindset
- I’m so excited to be engaged to the partner I love and whilst I know people will have their opinions on our wedding, together we are committed to creating our own amazing day.
- I’m excited about planning the best day of our lives and if it looks like it may become too time consuming and stressful for us, we can either share and delegate tasks to trusted friends and family or hire a wedding professional for some extra support.
- I can’t wait to share the day with all our friends and family and our guest list will be full of people we have chosen to share our day, not people we feel obliged to invite.
- We’re going to plan our perfect wedding within a sensible budget and take care to not let costs spiral out of control. Detailed planning will make sure we account for any possible issues so the whole day will run seamlessly, plus we’ll take out wedding insurance to cover any major issues.
- After the wedding we’re going to have an incredible, relaxed honeymoon which we’ve planned and budgeted and it will give us an opportunity to spend some quality time together, celebrate becoming newlyweds and re-live the memories of our amazing day.
