Let go of control and trust the wedding planning process!

Congratulations! You’re engaged! This is one of the most exciting times in your life and it is often viewed as one of the most stressful times as well because we have been conditioned to think this way. The pressure to have the perfect wedding is all over the place and brides start thinking they need to control everything so they can have the most amazing fairytale wedding…the one that some have thought of since they were a little girl.

All of this control creates resistance which ultimately creates more stress and blocks all the magic that is on its way to you. Imagine if you let go of the control so that you can actually FEEL if you’re in alignment and in the flow of planning your magical day. Does this make you feel anxious because you would no longer have control? I hear this quite often from my clients and then when they let go they say it’s like a huge weight has been lifted off of their shoulders and they have space to breathe. Things become more clear and they become in awe of what’s happening because it’s better than they could’ve ever imagined.

Control does not allow us to tap into our body and intuition. You may wonder well how do I tap into my intuition? I tell my clients they will know when they can witness what they’re body is trying to tell them. For example, when you are deciding on the venue if you feel expansive when you are checking it out and you can imagine celebrating there I would say that is a good sign that the venue is in alignment with you. If you feel constriction in your chest then it is not in alignment with you and move on to the next one. This seems so simple and it is once you recognize these sensations in your body and you follow the guidance your body is trying to tell you. This can be used for your vendors as well as decor and anything related to your planning. As you do this more and more it will become easier for you and before you know it you will be in full alignment with your whole wedding day! Now how magical would that be?!

You are totally missing it if you try and control everything because there is something so magical and amazing about surrendering and allowing the wonder of it all carry you.

I hope this resonates with you and you find this useful. Please email me at jennleigh111@gmail.com and let me know. I would love to hear from you!
