Getting married, especially to the love of your life is a very exciting moment in your life. You have been dreaming of this moment ever since you were a little girl and watched all the princesses in Disney movies in their big dresses finding love and living happily ever after. You have an entire pinterest board dedicated to wedding dresses and cannot wait to start wedding shopping. You want to look the prettiest you have ever looked with perfect hair, skin and nails. But the reality of a wedding is quite different compared to how movies portray them or how they are in our heads. Planning and organizing an event as important as your wedding is hands down one of the most stressful things ever, simply considering how much needs to be done. Finding a date, booking a suitable venue, and even inviting guests can be stressful. So read below to know what you can do to try and eliminate or at the very least, lower all this stress.
Hire a wedding planner
Hiring a wedding planner can help you immensely because they have worked with several brides before you, they will know exactly what you need and will understand your specific requests. They will also have contacts to reputable services such as bridal dressing services or even party hire services, so you do not have to struggle and find these yourself only to end up with a bad experience.
Accept that you cannot control everything
This is one of the most important things you will have to accept during your whole wedding planning process. Sometimes you just cannot control how some things happen and letting go of the urge to have everything under control will help you eliminate most of the stress. Consider hiring people for as many things as you need. If you want to serve cocktails at your wedding, you can hire a mobile cocktail bar and they will in turn take care of everything from keg hire in Perth to the quality of drinks served. All you will need to do is decide which drinks you need and how many guests will be attending your wedding.
Plan in advance
Even if you and your partner have decided to have your wedding in a year, planning in advance can help you so much. Even if you decide to wait a little longer to start your beauty treatments and purchase your dress, you must decide on the wedding venue and book it right away. This is especially important if you want to have your wedding during a certain time of the year when all your friends and family are on vacation. Because if this date happens to fall in the wedding season, you may find that it is almost impossible to book a venue as they will all be taken. The last thing you need is to spend so much time, effort and money to organize to your wedding and then be forced to have it in a venue that you do not like. You can also create your guest list in advance and keep adding to it every time you remember someone.
