6 ways to tell that the bride needs a break from wedding planning
The Quiet Period of wedding planning is an interesting time. Characterized by the bride’s lack of enthusiasm for continuing wedding planning, the wedding planning quiet period occurs just after all major vendors have been secured and before the nitty-gritty details come into play.
So how do you know, other than timing, that you’ve hit the wedding planning quiet period? This morning, I stumbled on a blog post by Deborah Shane that perfectly summarized 6 symptoms leading to the Quiet Period. They are:
- Complacency. You put in a hell of a lot of effort into securing your vendors and now you feel a lack of urgency to go forward.
- Boredom. You don’t know why, but all of a sudden you think your wedding is a snoozer.
- Lack of energy. If you feel completely exhausted by the mere thought of planning more than you have already.
- Procrastination. It becomes less fun, so you put it off to the last minute. Although risky, this is a pretty common human trait.
- Distracted. If you find yourself easily distracted by that text, that Tweets, or even that lil fly zooming past, you are probably approaching the wedding planning quiet period.
- Negativity. No one likes a negative nelly, but as you approach the wedding planning quiet period, you can’t help but focus on the negative.
These 6 traits indicate that you are in need of a much needed break. So be aware that you are entering the wedding planning quiet period and take the steps to reinvigorate your wedding planning stamina.
