Wedding Planning Breaks

Breaks and leaves of absence should not apply just to school and work, but major projects too – like planning your wedding!  This is a major lesson learned through the course of my planning so far.

Given 14 months from engagement to wedding date, it gave me too much time to over think every detail.  Six months into the planning, anything wedding-related became another thing to over-analyze.  In a way, it reminded me of college.  Each wedding-planning milestone was achieved after hours of endless research and analysis.   After attaining a photographer, I knew it was time for a break, a long after-summer break.

With “Wedding Season” out of the way, I didn’t feel like I was going to miss anything anyway.  So I stopped all planning and research – including watching “Bridzilla” and “Say Yes to the Dress” On Demand (for the ideas… believe me, it was research…)!  And after 2 months of absent-minded bliss, I feel like I’ve caught my second wind.

I’ve already planned for my next breaks, 3 weeks in January and another 3 weeks in April.  So for those of you who have a lot of time to plan, just remember to use that time to your advantage.  Take lots of breaks, or if you can’t – then go “research” your honeymoon locations on-site, that should help!  Happy planning!
