Wedding Planning build up

Planning a wedding abroad is demanding and draining and wedding day stress builds up quickly.  Just the fact of getting married is number 7 on the stressful life events ranking, add a few extra arguments with your partner during preparation; a change in eating habits to fit into the dress; a dip in sleeping habits because of all the excitement AND the exhilaration of making a trip across the pond.  Your score on the Holmes and Rahe Stress Test  just hit the high for catching a cold, getting a sore throat or the flu before your wedding day.

Share the Stress on Your Wedding Day

When you pick your Maid of Honor or Best Man, make sure it is someone you will be able to share the wedding day stress with if not during the wedding planning process, at least on the big day.  Let your trusted MOH/BM take full charge.
Here’s an easy list you can print onto a card and slip into a welcome gift bag so they are aware of the weight they should take off your shoulders.  You will all enjoy the experience of an Italy Wedding together.
