As a professional wedding photographer, I have seen, documented, and attended many weddings. And for some brides, the happiest day of their life, can be quite stressful.

Four Tips to Have a Stress Free Wedding
Choose Your Vendors Early
After saying “Yes,” there are some important things you should plan out as soon as possible. Besides choosing a date and a wedding venue, you should also choose all your wedding vendors early, including your professional wedding photographer. At Autumn & Co Photography, we want to make sure your wedding experience is captured to its fullest beauty to enjoy the memories for years to come. Book your wedding photographer today!
Set Values For Your Wedding Day
Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life. Establishing your wedding values, or determining what is most important to you and your spouse on this momentous occasion can help you stay centered and ensure you are getting what you wanted most out of your wedding. Two questions you can ask yourself to get an idea of your wedding day values are:
What do you want to look back on a year from your wedding day on your anniversary and remember the most?
When you and your significant other are rocking side by side on the porch when you’re 80 years old, what do you want to look back on and remember most about your life together?
When you think about these two questions, some of the small details like the napkin color or the dinner options will fade away, but your wedding photos will help you remember the joy and emotions you felt on your wedding day.
Spend Money On What You Actually Care About
Along with values, many brides face pressure to spend money on things they might not care too much about, like party favors or even fancy food options. Having a clear conversation with your friends, family, and significant other about what you care about for your wedding day can help alleviate some of the stress, as well as put your wants and needs first. One of the things you should not compromise on is being a great wedding photographer. Find someone who meets your style and can capture your wedding day vision.
Plan a Honeymoon
Many couples get caught up in the stress of planning a perfect wedding but forget to take the time to plan a honeymoon where they can relax and enjoy each other's company. Long after the “I dos,” some of your favorite memories may be in the mountains or a beach where you can connect with your new spouse without worrying about the endless post-wedding to-do list. Plan a honeymoon and enjoy yourself!
