Get Artsy

Art has long being considered a guaranteed wedding planning stress buster. Even if you aren’t exactly a Van Gogh in the making, simply taking out your old set of water colours and getting dirty with your paints can be a highly rewarding experience. Think of it this way- you’re creating a mini masterpiece for your bedroom. If you really can’t digest the thought of watercolours, then try your hand at a colouring book. No, we don’t mean the kind of books that school children use, but colouring books with intricate patterns and designs meant for adults. You’ll feel calm and focused in no time.

Go Outdoors

Nature is all around us and yes this is one wedding planning stress buster we tend to overlook. Don’t keep sitting indoors with your excel sheet and wedding budget in front of you.
