As you are plan your wedding, you will come to realize that many decisions need to be made. From choosing centerpieces to inviting guests, you will likely be in charge of having a final say. But what if you have trouble in the decision making department? Indecisiveness can cause you more anxiety, which you don't need or want. So here are five ways you might be able to come to quicker conclusions:
1) Go With Your Gut- Your intuition speaks volumes. When making wedding planning decisions, always consult your gut. How you feel about or get along with others plays an important role in decision making, especially since you'll be spending a lot of time with specific wedding professionals, for example. If everything feels right, it probably is. Likewise, if something isn't clicking you may want to revisit your decision.
2) Don't Get Too Many Opinions- It might seem like a good idea to ask your friends and relatives what they think about your choice in food, venue, or dress, but sometimes soliciting opinions from too many people can make you more confused than when you started out. It's okay to ask others their thoughts, but limit it to a few trusted and supportive individuals. Make sure they are people who understand and share your wedding day dream, so they can help you accordingly.
3) Take Note of Recurrent Worries- If there is something specific that keeps worrying you or creeping into your head, pay attention. Say, for example, you can't decide if you want to hire a DJ or use a couple friends who volunteered. You think you'll just have your friends do it, but you keep wondering if a DJ would be better or more fun. If these thoughts keep hounding you, you may want to consider going with the DJ. What it costs you in extra money, it may save you in anxiety.
4) Ask the Professionals- Wedding professionals are just that...professionals. They have the experience and knowledge to give you the information you need to make better decisions. If you can't decide on something, consult a professional. Better yet, hire one, such as a wedding planner, whose job it is to help you realize your wedding day dreams and to take the guesswork out of planning.
5) Go With It- At some point, you will have to make a decision and stick with it. Once you do, learn to let it go and not worry about it further. Cross it off your list and move onto the next thing. And remember that whatever comes of the decision you make, your wedding day and the union between you and your fiance is paramount to it all.
