Once you set the date quite often wedding planning is like a ball rolling down a hill, it is unstoppable. It will come as no surprise to you if you’ve already started organising your big day that while some aspects are fun (such as trying on dresses and cake tasting!) others are enough to have you tearing your hair out.
There is your venue to sort out, your dress, invitations, a seating plan, the bridesmaids, the honeymoon, flowers, food….. it is a wonder that more brides and grooms don’t get half way through the planning and decide to up sticks and elope quietly somewhere. We understand how stressful the pre-wedding period may be and so offer these nuggets of advice.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
Your wedding day will not be perfect because you have cried your way through weeks of arrangements; it will be perfect because you will be showing your friends and family just how much you love your partner as you are both joined together as part of a lovely ceremony. Don’t kill yourself over tiny details or make yourself ill worrying about how things will turn out. It will be fine.
Wedding costs very quickly get out of hand. Make sure that you work out carefully in advance what you can realistically afford and use this budget to organise a fabulous day which won’t leave you spending your first months or years as a married couple in debt. Knowing what you have in the pot in advance and sticking your budget helps to keep the money related stress levels down.
When it comes to your hen weekend the beauty of booking with us is that you know exactly what you all need to pay in advance, that you pay before you go and that you can only then spend on drinks and extras what you’ve taken with you (which has been budgeted for). Just remember to leave the plastic at home.
Don’t let Yourself Reach Boiling Point
Killing your mother in law to be over flowers or a seating arrangement chart will probably cause some major disruptions to your wedding planning schedule. Make sure you take breaks from planning to blow off steam, to relax and to spend some proper non-wedding related time with your other half.
For ultimate steam blowing we have some fantastic action-packed hen weekends for you to choose from such as our Wet n Wild experience (gorge walking), Red Hot Racers (fast paced karting) and much more.
If you’ve had more than enough of rushing about and what you really crave is some rest and relaxation why not enjoy a spa experience with your hens or a more sedate, yet just as fun, activity such as nude life drawing, perfume making or even our mouth-watering Chocolate Heaven event?
Don’t get bogged down with the details when we can help you by arranging everything you want for your hen night. Similarly remember that bridesmaids, friends, family and of course your Groom are all there ready and willing to help you, so let them. You might actually enjoy the wedding planning once you’ve got the hang of delegating.
