Strategies for a Stress-Free Wedding
A wedding is about the celebration of a special union, and a few strategies for good planning can reduce stress levels and ensure everyone has a good time on the big day.
Acceptance vs. control
The typical bride and groom will have done a significant amount of planning before the day arrives. However, once the day begins it’s a good idea to sit back and accept that some things may be outside one’s control.
Planning for contingencies – such as rainy weather for an outdoor wedding – can minimise stress, but so can recognising that certain things simply cannot be controlled.
Working with wedding contractors
Most weddings will involve third-party contractors such as photographers, caterers, wedding-hire companies, venue managers, and suppliers. Planners, brides and grooms should be clear on their business relationship with their contractors, as this will reduce ambiguity and confusion on the day.
Wedding insurance can be a good idea for those who want to have a degree of financial protection on the day. Whether it is the costs of rescheduling the wedding or the costs of postponement due to illness, wedding insurance can relieve some of the stress associated with the risk of something going wrong.
