(By Debbie Harrower) Let me share with you, the six things I have done that I feel will dramatically reduce wedding day stress and drama for any bride-to-be.
I am getting married
With me getting married next year May, a chunk of my spare time is spent looking at all things wedding.
Today I decided that it would be a nice idea to start a little weekly / monthly blog series on All4Women, about my journey to the altar and beyond.
It’s still early days, but I have yet to fall into the bridezilla zone (and I hope not to).
There are however a few things that I have thought about and already implemented so as to avoid any wedding day disasters.
I am a worrier. I’m the girl who wants a plan for the plan
You can never be too prepared for one the biggest and most important days of your life. So, surely the best thing you can do is be over-prepared up until the day and then just surrender to whatever may be and go with the flow?
Let me share with you the six things I have done to date, from what I have taken into account when booking someone / something, to simple ideas for on the day, that I feel will dramatically reduce any wedding day stress and drama.
Venue and food
I am so in love with our venue, I can’t wait to get married there. It was the first and only venue we looked at and we were both instantly sold on it.
Besides suiting our budget, we also loved the fact that we don’t have to hire too many outside suppliers. So many of the big things gets done by the venue itself.
We even get a function manager and an on-the-ball wedding coordinator on the day. Two of my friends got married there last year, and both were extremely happy with the venue, staff and food.
Want your wedding to be as stress and drama free as possible?
Remember this: fewer suppliers = less stress. Find a venue that does nearly everything!
The last thing you want to worry about is something like the catering company that you’ve hired not pitching, arriving late or delivering less than what you initially ordered.
