Set a budget – Set a budget that both you and your partner are happy with.

Use a wedding coordinator – To ease the stress of wedding planning, why not utilise the venues wedding coordinators. This removes the stress of organising everything and allows brides and grooms to relax and enjoy the build up to the wedding and the actual day itself, ensuring that everything is taken care of. Establish a good working relationship with your wedding planner, bouncing ideas off each other and working out how much involvement you would like them to have. A wedding planner is one of the easiest ways to ensure a smooth, perfect big day with minimal stress.
