When it comes to planning your dream  wedding, you’ll also end up spending quite a bit of time worrying. Unfortunately, it is unavoidable to feel a little stressed out at times and small moments of panic are more than likely.
But the truth is that controlling your wedding anxiety can also be easier than you think. This is because some of the little details that run in your head in the middle of the night don’t deserve to be there. Some wedding details are definitely not worth your worry and here are five things you shouldn’t be stressing about.
1. The bridesmaid and the groomsmen
One of the things you need to stop mulling over is who to ask to be your bridesmaids and groomsmen. You don’t need to spend sleepless nights over who to ask, how many to ask and where are they all going to stand during the ceremony!

The truth is you need to go with whomever you want. Although being asked to be someone’s bridesmaid is a huge honor, it shouldn’t be the end of the world for anyone. And honestly, it isn’t even the main focus of the wedding.
On top of this, there is no golden rule that you need an equal number of bridesmaids and groomsmen. So allow both of you to pick the people you want and whom you know can help smoothen out the big day for you.
2. The latest trends
Although picking a theme for your wedding is important, this doesn’t mean that you need to pay attention to all the latest wedding trends of the season. It is lovely to browse wedding blogs and magazines for ideas, but ultimately your wedding should be about the things you want.
For instance, even though vintage trends are a big thing, you shouldn’t wear a 40s style gown if you actually hate the look. You don’t need to spend hours finding out everything about the latest cake trends either, if you already know you want a basic strawberry cake.
3. The seating plan
There are two things to know about seating plans and wedding stress. First, there is no reason why you need to assign specific seats for people during your ceremony. Naturally, a seating plan for the wedding reception is a must-have, but where people sit during your ceremony shouldn’t worry you.
On top of this, once you create a seating plan for your reception, you also need to stop thinking about it. Don’t spend hours trying to make sure relatives who don’t get along aren’t sitting next to each other. After all, this is your big day and people should be able to act civil during your moment!
4. The programs
Spending hours over the perfect wedding program look is just a waste of your energy. Although you want to make sure your programs have all the information needed and look pretty, thinking about the font for two hours isn’t necessary.
The best advice is to keep the style and color scheme similar to that of your wedding theme. On top of this, you also want to keep it simple.
5. The favors
Wedding favors are such a lovely thing and you want to find something amazing to give to your family and friends. But you shouldn’t spend more time thinking about the favors than you do the decorations. Just stick to something simple and sweet.
With the above tips you can stop worrying about the smaller details and focus on the bigger picture. Planning your wedding should be all about fun! 

I hope these tips help you get more organized in your wedding planning process. And if you’d like the rest of our planning tips, simply complete the form at the bottom of this post and we’ll email it to you!
