Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and should be one of the most enjoyable too. There’s no denying, however, that planning your big day can get a little stressful. So here we take a quick look at some top tips for ensuring your wedding planning experience is as stress-free as possible, so you can make the most of the experience.
Plan Your Budget
Getting your budget planned and sorted early on is key, and with the range of wedding options out there, whether you have £1000 or even £100,000 to spend you’re sure to be able to find the right option for you. For some handy hints and tips take a look at this useful guide on how to plan a wedding on a budget.
When it comes to planning a wedding it’s best to start as early as possible, and you can never really be too organised. Start by making a to-do list and pick out the most important items on this list, such as your choice of venue, so you can prioritise these.
One of the first jobs on your list should be to write a guest list so you can get a pretty good idea of the number of people likely to be attending you wedding. This will help you decide on other important factors such as your venue choice and catering.
Pick the Right Venue
When it comes to planning your wedding, picking the right venue is one of the most important decisions you will make. Firstly you need to decide on the theme of your wedding, as this can really help make things easier.
For example if it’s a more traditional country style wedding you’re looking for, then venues such as the Crouchers Hotel located in the stunning West Sussex countryside can be ideal. Venues such as this are also able to host both your wedding and reception, and when it comes to planning your wedding, deciding if you want to hold your wedding and reception in separate venues is crucial. Whilst this can make things easier from a logistical point of view, ultimately this is also a matter of personal preference and it’s important to make the right decision for you.
For more contemporary themes, modern venues such as a stylish hotel can be the perfect choice. Boutique hotels such as The Midland Hotel, a contemporary venue with an Art Deco twist, located on the North West coast, are also becoming an increasingly popular option for weddings with a more modern theme.
You’ll find that once you get your wedding venue sorted the rest of your wedding options will start to fall in to place.
After all that hard work and planning you have the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a little pampering. Why not reward yourself with a spa treatment or break, to ensure you are as relaxed and stress-free as possible before your wedding. This website gives a guide to some of the best spas in the UK so you can find the perfect destination.
Hopefully this quick guide will help you to take the stress out of planning your wedding, so you can get on with what’s most important, enjoying it!
