Just to recap: stress is not fun.
(“Thank you for that. Any other bloody obvious observations?”)
No one wants to deal with stress when planning the happiest day of their lives. You want these moments filled with joy and happiness, not rage and aggression.
(Though, if you’re looking for a wedding theme that’s never been done before, “rage and aggression” is the way to go!)
There’s another reason you should try and avoid stress as much as possible during the wedding planning though:
Stress causes us to make bad decisions.
If you need any more convincing that stress is bad for your wedding, imagine how you’d feel walking down the aisle accompanied by your Uncle Dave playing Chas n Dave’s “Snooker Loopy” on the spoons.
I won’t bore you with the science behind it all (mostly because I have no clue what the science actually is), but essentially it boils down to this –
Stress causes us to forget what’s important to us.
This is why you should never yell at your kids when you’re in Lidl. You go in for a jar of pasta and end up buying a lawnmower and a map of Paraguay.
The point is this – keep an eye on your stress level…
…because it could cost you your perfect wedding day.
