Stress free wedding planning – the series


Weddings don’t have to be stressful… there, I’ve said it!  But somehow, for some couples, they are.  What should be a celebration of your love and a chance to spend time with those who are special to you, can turn into months of headaches, sleepless night and even confrontation.  And it got me thinking, where does this stress come from? Is it pressure we put on ourselves, is it because of others and their expectations, or is it an unrealistic vision that cannot be realised?  Is it because we must or should do things or is it “simply” because organising an event scares you?

Whatever the reason, what is one of the happiest times of your life (and I say one of and not the happiest day for a reason, but that’s not for today’s post) should be tarnished with feelings of overwhelm, stress and negativity.  But how do you prevent it?  Well, over the next few weeks I am going to draw on our own experience and others within the wedding world to write a series on how to have a stress free wedding.  Because, after all, whilst it may be your first time planning a wedding, we have seen loads, so trust me when I say you’re not alone.
