A Stress Free Wedding Requires Teamwork.

Everyone in your wedding party is a teammate. Sure, they might argue with you, they might not be able to hold back unpopular opinions, and might even be your Mother-in-law, but that doesn’t mean they are not duty-bound to help you out. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen, your friends and family, all of them are potential help for you in your time of need.

Planning a wedding is big business, and you are going to need all the help you can get. Delegate, dish out the jobs, and don’t get caught up in the small stuff. Keep in mind when choosing your bridal party who has the skills you will need. A hard-working bridesmaid will take so much stress off your shoulders she will be much more vital than a popular one. Wedding Bee even recommends that you assign your maids specific tasks, like having a wedding dress helper and someone else in charge of breakfast duties.

Hire Professionals!

Time and time again, we come across brides who have been disappointed on their big day because one of their services wasn’t what they thought it would be. A good rule is to never go with anything that offers ‘cheap’ or ‘free’ bridal services or wedding services because these are always a scam to whittle money from you. Hiring a professional ensures you get what you pay for and are left with a high-quality product. Never has this been truer than it is with the wedding photographer, so choose wisely and don’t be let down on the day.

Plan, Plan, Plan Again!

From budget to itineraries, travel plans to hotel rooms – planning every single aspect of the wedding will help you to get it right. One of the biggest problems brides and grooms have is that the budget they set aside to spend and the cost of the things they are buying are always different. Save money where you can and budget out what money is allocated to what area to get the most for your money. 

Planning a wedding is incredibly stressful, but you can find some tips on how to prepare appropriately courtesy of Wedding Wire, who can give you a step-by-step guide.

Getting the Family on Board!

When it comes to the big day itself, you are going to need everyone to be on the same page, but this can be true of the planning stages as well. Setting up a message board exclusively for the family can help you work through what needs to be done and when, and can even be helpful with other things, like deciding the seating plan and itinerary for the big day.

If you choose to set up a family message board, don’t forget this is the perfect way to plan your photography sessions. You can plan out when, where, and how you want your photographs taken alongside your family members, so it may be a good idea to include your wedding photographer on that message board, too!

Hair and Makeup Worries

Hair and makeup problems needn’t be issues as long as you have set yourself plenty of time aside in case something goes wrong. Don’t leave your hair and makeup to the last minute and book with plenty of time in advance. In terms of scheduling, try to get them to arrive hours before the wedding so that you can change your look if necessary. Try to book hair and makeup to be present for a few hours so that they can touch you up before you walk down the aisle. Many professionals will also give you advice on how to stay flawless-looking throughout the day.

Hire professionals like a makeup artist or hairstylist who will turn up on time with all of their equipment, and who have a solid idea of what it is that you want. A semi-professional, a student, or someone who does it just for fun, is unlikely to give the same level of service. They might not have the correct equipment, and they may even make a mess of things, not something you want to risk on your wedding day.

Morning Preparations on the Day

Don’t leave everything until the morning of your wedding. Planning makes you better able to relax and enjoy your event. Instead, pack your bags the night before, prep your bridal party well in advance and send all your reminders or last-minute instructions before your wedding day. This way, on your wedding morning, you can rise, get ready, and go without the stress associated with rushing around.

Dressing Up!

Get dressed with your bridesmaids, since it is their primary duty and will make your life a lot easier, especially if you have a corseted dress. Depend on them to oversee the actual dressing on the day, but also to keep your dress in a safe place during transport, so your groom doesn’t see it! Brides have an amusing article on tips about hiding the dress from your partner until the final reveal, but we still think entrusting it to the care of a bridesmaid is a beautiful gesture.
