- Make sure to prioritize
Prioritize rightfully, do you want a wedding with one hundred guests or you just want a wedding with 50 guests so you can have a better experience and at the same time save money considering that after your baby is born there are a lot of expenses you also have to think about. Sure, your pregnancy and wedding are both important for you, hence giving your best to both is a must.
By deciding rightfully and prioritizing what you have to prioritize, it can be a lot easier for you to manage and take care of your wedding planning and preparation even when you are pregnant, plus it can also help you save a lot of money.

- Seek help from your family and friends
Yes please, you are not alone in this, you can ask your family and friends to help you pass by and finish what you need to finish on your wedding preparation. You can assign one with a task you know they can handle, also, you have to seek help and support from your spouse. Okay, everyone for sure is nicer to you, because, yes, you are pregnant.
To make the favors more efficient, be sure to provide clear instructions. What are the things they need to accomplish, who they need to talk to, when they must finish the job and so on. Be as detailed as possible so it can be easier for them and at the same time you can get the result that you are expecting.
- Have a calendar
One of the things every pregnant bride to be needs to have is a calendar. A calendar where they can write all their appointments not only for their wedding but their doctor’s appointments too. Make sure to visit your calendar once in a while to make sure you won’t forget any appointments.
- Hire a wedding planner
Another way to make everything smoother is hire a wedding planner. For some, they will just hire for just one day coordinator, but since you are pregnant, it is best that you get full service. You would not want to travel from one point to another to meet vendors from time to time, as it may consume your energy and would make you so tired. Wedding planner is there to ensure that some of the major legworks will be taken off your back and you can concentrate on other things that are also important.
Having a professional working on your behalf can give you a peace of mind that things on your wedding will happen as planned. Same as with your family and friends, you have to make sure that instructions are given crystal clear.
- Take a break
Even those bride to be who are not pregnant needs some rest, all the more to those who are pregnant. Do not punish yourself too much, you are pregnant and you deserve all the love and care. If you are exhausted or tired, do not force yourself to take responsibilities, step back a little, delegate tasks and relax. Never force yourself as if you do, your health and your baby’s health will get affected big time.
Let your appointed person work on the things you will leave behind while you are relaxing with your spouse instead. Everyone would surely understand that you need to get some rest.
If you are working, it is best if you ask your boss for a leave. You do not need to take all the 9 months, but at least enough duration wherein you can arrange everything about your wedding, you can have your check ups and examinations done.
- Make sure to incorporate your baby on the wedding
Sure, you might just be so excited and announce the big news on your social network account. But, that should not limit you from announcing the good news on your wedding. You can let the officiant make the announcement, the wedding host, the DJ or someone else. This should not be forgotten to mention as this is also a very precious news everyone close to your heart deserves to know.
Make the announcement anyway you want but you have to make sure it will be announced.
Tip: Before announcing it to everyone, make sure that your closest friends and family, especially your parents are already aware.
