Help! Is Planning A DIY Wedding Really Stressful? BLOG POST

Planning any wedding can be stressful, it’s a huge emotional (and sometimes financial) decision, but it doesn’t have to be stressful. Choosing to marry is a significant commitment, but it should also be one of the most joyful days of your life, and we believe there is no room for stress on your wedding day. And whether you live in the UK or the US, wedding stress is always on another level. You must look for wedding photography Rhode Island, London, or wherever you live, as well as select a perfect wedding gown and decor, among other things.

Read on to find out how to make your special day less stressful:

4 ways to make your DIY wedding day stress-free:

  1. Make sure you know what you want.

It can be easy to get swept away with all the things you think you ‘should’ have. Yet, if you can get clear from the start about what you want and how you want your wedding to feel, it can be much easier to stand your ground. You won’t get pulled into directions that take you away from your vision, this is often what causes stress when your day spirals into something you didn’t want. Spend some time clarifying the exact wedding day you want. You should also make sure that you keep yourself happy so that you are able to stay focused on what you want – you might want to explore something like OCN’s extensive product line as a way to give yourself a little relief when you are feeling particularly stressed and help you channel your energy where you need it most.

  1. Set a clear budget.

There is no doubt about it, money can cause stress – especially when talking about money for a wedding budget. Hitched.co.uk found the average total cost of a wedding in the UK in 2019 was an eye-watering 31,974! There is no need to spend vast amounts of money to get married, but what does matter is setting a budget that’s right for you and your partner. Without creating, and sticking to, a clear budget, you are going to add to your stress levels. The good news, wedding prices at Hargate Hall start from 5,500! Spend some time planning your wedding budget and stick to it!

  1. Create a plan.

Having a clear plan for your wedding day and the lead up will help to reduce your stress. With a plan you won’t be worried about the details, you won’t be carrying around information in your head, it will be detailed on paper, giving you the freedom to know your wedding is under control.

  1. Surround yourself with people you can trust.

One of the best ways to reduce wedding day stress is to use experienced suppliers. They will have attended hundreds of weddings and they’ll be well prepared for all eventualities. They’ll also be able to give you lots of advice and suggestions, helping to make your day flow. Take away stress by surrounding yourself with people who you can trust to get the job done and do it exactly as you’ve asked. As well as this, you could look into little changes you could make in your life to help yourself feel a little less stressed. For example, you could look into CBD oil (and, if you’re wondering is CBD oil legal in the UK, then you’ll be pleased to know that hemp-derived CBD that contains less than 0.2% THC is permitted), as a way to keep yourself mentally sound, as well as help with things like sleep which, let’s face it, you need as much of as you can get in the run up to a wedding.
