The long to-do lists. The many decisions to be made. The countless details to remember. At times, it can feel overwhelming.
But I once heard a wise wedding planner say to a couple, "When wedding planning is no longer feeling fun, that's the time to go out to dinner, have a glass of wine, and do something that you both enjoy while working on your to-do list."
And I couldn't agree more.
Not every minute of wedding planning is absolutely blissful - that's 100% totally normal. But there are things you can do to make it more enjoyable when you're not totally psyched about it.
My personal favorite is to make a wedding planning date. Picnic in the park. Dinner on the town. Hike in the woods. Whatever it is that you and your partner enjoy. Doing something fun together while working through your to-do list takes a lot of the pressure off and naturally injects some fun into your planning.
And if you're in New England, DIY Wedding Mentor and a local wedding venue, An Affair by the Lake, have teamed up to provide couples with a one-of-a-kind wedding planning festival so that you can have an awesome time planning together - HITCHFEST.
HITCHFEST is a wedding planning festival that puts the FUN in wedding planning. Think outdoors, right on Lake Champlain with the Adirondack Mountains in the background, free food (wood oven pizza, tacos, etc.), live music, craft beer, wedding planning how-to seminars, crazy good giveaways, and even a campfire with s'mores.

Whatever you do this weekend, remember to have some fun - you deserve it :)
