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.
Weddings on the Mind coach Tabby Kerwin writes about how to embrace a realistic mindset for mininimum stress.
The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 really brought extreme sadness and worry to the world but as we (hopefully) are coming to the end, it is time to reflect and take any positives that we can.

We often think of engagements and weddings as separate events. Exciting, albeit different and individual events.
When we focus on them as separate events that can inevitably lead to moments of sadness or a feeling of loss when the event has passed and it can contribute to additional stress and pressure.
As wedding professionals we have had many couples feel a sense of loss once their wedding day is over, not knowing how to direct their energy and excitement once the planning is finished.
At Weddings on the Mind we want to focus on the whole and in this blog we talk about The Life Cycle of a Wedding Couple.
Have you considered hiring a Wedding Coach?
What’s that? I hear you say? Well, it is a thing and it’s becoming increasingly popular with wedding couples and professionals.
Whilst weddings are one of the most exciting events in someone’s life, they also bring a lot of stress. This stress, if not managed can lead to a negative impact on our mental health.
A Wedding Coach is a little different to a wedding planner. We will always advocate for you using the services of professionals when possible as they are amazing and can really relieve your wedding planning workload, but sometimes the budget doesn’t stretch that far or we want to be 100% in control of what we’re doing – though we still could do with a little support.
Working as wedding planners, something common that we see with couples is the stress they come under due to other people. Whether it’s a well meaning friend sharing their opinions or an overbearing parent who thinks they get to call the shots because they are paying the bill.
It’s very easy to try and please everyone, but when we do, we lose ourselves, lose our vision and fall under the spell of stress and pressure. But how do you balance keeping everyone happy whilst having your wedding, your way?
If you are currently planning your wedding, remember this… it’s your wedding… just let that sink in.
