It's not all blush confetti and champagne, planning a wedding can be stressful…
#1 After the champagne/prosecco-blurred haze that was your engagement party, the sudden realisation that you have to actually plan a wedding will dawn…(but its okay, as WEDDING is on hand to help you out with every element of your day) #yourewelcome
#2 When it comes down to the logistics, your organisational skills will be put to the test. Have you contacted the Vicar? The Church? The venue? The caterers? *face-plant keyboard*
#3 When it comes to the catering, guests' dietary requirement's may send you mad (it happens to the best of us).
#4 The bridesmaid fitting may not turn out to be the prosecco-filled, relaxing situation you expected. Prepare to compromise and work it through. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES lock a bridesmaid in the shop's toilet because she won't try on the duck-egg blue, empire-waisted maxi. This is not okay. REPEAT. THIS IS NOT OKAY.
#5 Choose carefully who you take to your bridal fitting. THIS is YOUR day, and YOUR dress. No one wants THIS to happen when you're wearing a VERA WANG:
#6 EVERYONE you know will have an opinion about SOMETHING to do with the BIG DAY. Do not let this A. change your mind about something you really want to do/have, or B. inspire you to gag them with the pink ribbon you've been saving for the favours.
#7 Don't get too carried away with YOUR vision for the wedding. If your husband's chosen suit doesn't quite fit the festival theme, LET IT GO. The poor guy deserves to choose SOMETHING, no?
#8 Don't let your inner bridezilla get the better of you, she's just looking for a fight.
#9 Have someone level-headed on hand to let you know when you've taken that step too far.
#10 Enjoy every minute of the BIG DAY prep - as you'll actually miss it when it's all done!
