Taking control and getting clarity helps to lessen feelings of stress and anxiety. I would suggest the following:

1. Plan a timeline working backwards from your wedding date. Add deadlines or approximate dates for each item.HS Prioritise what you want to have, or to happen, on the day.

2. Add other categories within this, with an A, B or C listing relevant to its priority and make sure you focus on the A list first.

3. Delegate tasks where possible.

Fear can stand for False Expectations Appearing Real. Focus on what you know to be true and try not to exaggerate any worries. Make back-up plans where possible, but also accept that you can't control everything.

To help you relax, give yourself time for self-care and take regular breaks from planning to lower your stress levels. This means your reactions are from a calm and level approach, rather than a place of worry.

Don't forget, it's not your responsibility to ensure everyone has a good time – people choose their own thoughts and feelings. However, happiness and positive energy are contagious, so focus on what lights you up and you'll automatically attract more joy.
