If you’ve got a busy career in healthcare, perhaps working as a nurse manager or studying an online DNP program, you are sure to be exceptionally busy. While a wedding is a joyous event and something to look forward to, if you are both healthcare professionals, the idea of planning your wedding day may be a little daunting. How are you going to fit in all the planning, the meetings, and the trials around your careers? Here are some top tips to help you.
Wedding planners are much more common nowadays. Many couples are overwhelmed by the amount of options and choices involved in planning a wedding, or they simply don’t have time to do it. So, instead, they hire a wedding planner. Your wedding planner would be as involved and take as much control as you want them to. It would still be your wedding; you just wouldn’t have to do all of the hard work. If you are busy studying an online doctor of nursing while you work, this could be your best option.
As a busy healthcare professional, you will know the importance of being organized. Write everything down. From appointments to ideas and color schemes. Keep a notebook with you all the time and use it. That way you can’t forget anything important and you will find it easy to make arrangements when you know exactly where you will be and what you will be doing at any given time.
Use Some Holiday
If you work in a healthcare setting, it’s not always possible to take time off when you need it or to sync your days off with your partner. If possible, try to book a day or two off together every month in the run up to the wedding. This way you can attend meetings and make decisions together instead of always having to consult later.
Many people now book their wedding at least two years in advance. You could realistically book most elements of your day this early. Then, as it gets closer you can relax and concentrate on the fun side of wedding planning such as picking outfits and buying gifts. Booking early takes a lot of pressure away and lets you enjoy the process without getting stressed out or feeling rushed.
Keep it Small
Small weddings can be beautiful. By having a smaller ceremony and reception you can focus on the things you really care about and create your own personal and unique day. Think about the parts of a wedding that mean the most to you. If you’re not bothered about flowers or a cake, don’t have them. A small gathering can be intimate and romantic and it gives you the freedom to go against tradition.
The most important thing to remember is that help is available. Even if you chose not to enlist the services of a wedding planner, your friends and family will be only too keen to get stuck in with your planning and help in any way they can. Just ask. Good Luck!
