Why You shouldn’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help With Your Wedding Planning

With the stress that wedding planning can bring, it’s easy to get lost in the chaos. However, you don’t have to do this alone. Asking for help will not only ease the burden on yourself, but help you enjoy the process more, as the wedding draws near.

We’ve got a few ways you can help ease some of the pressure…

Friends and Family

Friends and family can prove to be the most precious support network during your wedding planning. They’re there to help and support you. They’ll want to make everything as easy as possible for you, so don’t be afraid to lean on them if you need to.

To put your mind at ease, you could delegate tasks to those you trust the most. For example, if you’re having flower girls and page boys, is there a family member or friend who can keep a close eye on them during the ceremony? Hopefully, this should allow you to relax that bit more and really enjoy your day.

Don’t sink with the stress. It’s crucial to voice how you’re feeling, and the more honest you are with your loved ones, the more they will be able to support you.

Non-wedding Life Events

This might sound impossible when you’re in the middle of your wedding planning but making time for other aspects of your life as well as the wedding talk is essential. You won’t become overwhelmed by it all. With the intense focus that comes with weddings, going for a drink with friends, or going on a day trip can provide you with a valuable chance to relax and zoom out a little.


It’s no easy feat feeding a wedding party. It’s easy to worry about making sure there’s something for everyone and that nobody feels left out.

Rather than taking on the mammoth task yourself, look around for recommended, trustworthy catering vans. There are some great options out there which can add a fun feel to the day, and it means you won’t have to worry about shopping around for the food yourself.


This could be a fun one for your maid of honour, or groomsman to organise. Someone who knows you and your partner really well. Not only will they know how to make you laugh and smile, but it’s also one less thing for you to worry about.

From beer pong, to a photo booth, there are plenty of ways to add a sprinkle of entertainment to your special day. It could also act as a fun surprise for you, as it’s one less thing to plan.

There’s no doubt wedding planning can be a source of huge stress, but it doesn’t have to be this way. It’s so important to remember that you are not alone, and by making it a team effort with those around you, it can make everything feel that bit more manageable. Communication is key.
