Wedding Stress | Survival Kit| Philadelphia Event Planners

We all face stress!


Stress is a common factor that all couples planning a wedding share. It may be stress over the little details, money or planning or you may just feel overwhelmed. While you can’t eliminate all of the stress inherent in wedding planning, there are a few ways to minimize that stress and keep your relationship strong during the stress.

One of the best ways to combat the stress factor is to equip yourself with the tools of survival.  We have created a survival kit to help remind couples to “tighten the wheels when they start to fall off” and to make sure they take time to lay around and sing love songs.

All relationships are tricky but we are pretty sure that some study has proven that relationships are easier to manage if you laugh often, care for the other person, mend a broken heart, pick your battles and stay flexible.

The contents in this gift are fun, practical and a bit goofy but the message is thoughtful, forgiving and loving.

Karen Pecora, wedding planner, Philadelphia Event Planners says… Pick your battles!


When planning a wedding…Kiss often!  It decreases the stress hormone cortisol and increases serotonin levels in the brain.  Kissing has also been measured to lower anxiety and has similar benefits to meditation.


Pop open a bottle of wine when discussing “The Play” and “DO NOT Play” list for your wedding reception music.


At some point you will cry… Wipe away the wedding planning tears and start to roll with it!
