Every bride wants her wedding day to be perfect, but no one wants to be known as a ‘Bridezilla’, so what is the perfect balance? How do you go about organising your big day while keeping your composure? There are a few tricks of the trade, direct from those in the know that will help you plan the perfect wedding day without getting too stressed.
We all know that behind any great event is a lot of organisation. Ok, so you might not be an events coordinator or even a party planner, but you can still bring a sense of order to your planning with a wedding organiser. As a compendium of all things wedding related, your wedding organiser should hold the details of your prospective venues and suppliers.
It always pays to pick your wedding party early. That way they are there from the start to help smooth over any bumps that might occur on your road to getting married. You’ll find that they will be happy and willing to help you – especially with things they are good at and enjoy so learn to make the most of it and get them involved.
Plan for the unexpected – while you can’t plan for everything, there are a few things you should consider. If you are hoping to hold any part of your wedding outdoors, it is crucial that you have a back-up plan in the unfortunate event of bad weather – think a gazebo, marquee or an undercover venue nearby.
Another important aspect is deciding on the order of events before the day. You would be surprised how many couples overlook this and end up just turning up on the day expecting that the MC will know what to do. Planning the order of the day will ensure that your bridal party and everyone involved in the organisation of the event will know what to do and when. It will bring a sense of order to your event, elevating confusion and stress.
Remember, it’s YOUR wedding day so make sure you take time out to relax, look after yourself and just enjoy the experience. You need to spend time with your fiancé, family and friends outside of wedding preparations and continue doing what you enjoy. The last thing you need is to be stressed out and ill on your wedding day so relax, get lots of rest, eat properly and make sure you are regularly exercising.
