Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to create the perfect day? It’s time to take a step back and follow our tips for a magical wedding.

Everyone wants their big day to be perfect, but the pressure to create your dream wedding can create a lot of unwelcome stress for the happy couple. Whether you’re worried about the weather, how your wedding will look on social media, or just the idea of having all of your family and friends in one place, there’s a lot to think about and it can feel quite overwhelming. But follow our top tips so you can take a step back, relax and look forward to what your wedding day should really be about – a celebration of your relationship.

Delegate To Your Team

Planning your wedding means relying on a team of people to bring all the details together. Some of these will be your trusted family and friends – perhaps your parents, bridesmaids, best man and ushers. Others will be your team of professionals who you’ve chosen to work with on your big day such as photographers or caterers. Everyone in your team wants to help you create the wedding of your dreams, so take some time in advance to sit down and delegate some tasks to them. Wedding venues in Essex like ours, have dedicated planners so you can truly sit back, relax and trust that your dream will come together.

Mind And Body

Getting in shape for your wedding isn’t just about looking great in your wedding attire. Spending some time on your mind and body is really important to keep those endorphins flowing and to help you stay grounded. Whilst training for a 5k is great for cardio, and going to a HIIT class will do wonders for toning your body, it’s important to enjoy some more nurturing types of exercise too such as yoga which will help you remain focused and in the moment.

Planning For The Weather

One thing that couples dread on their big day is bad weather, yet worrying about the possibility of a downpour can cause a lot of unnecessary stress. Make a contingency plan so you know how your day will work if it does rain – you may want to provide umbrellas, and have a covered area available for your champagne reception for example. But otherwise learn to embrace the elements and see any rain as a positive – not only is it considered good luck in Hindu tradition, but you might even get a rainbow in your photos!

Take Some Time Out With Your Partner

Remember that person you want to spend the rest of your life with? If you’ve not spent much quality time together recently because you’ve been so busy organising the details, then it’s important to put aside some time and reconnect with your partner. You can book a date night, or even a weekend away before your wedding. Spending some one-on-one time together will help you to regain some perspective and any worries you have about your big day will melt away.

In a few weeks’ time, your wedding day will be the day you look back on for the rest of your life. So, remember not to get bogged down by the stress of planning and leave it to the professionals to bring all those details together for you. Spending time focusing on you and your partner is the best way to prepare for your magical celebrations.
