Wedding Planning Tips

If you’re currently in the process of planning your wedding, you may feel overwhelmed by the volume of things to do. If you’re becoming a little stressed from wedding planning, keep reading. In today’s blog post, Big Top Marquees discusses top tips to minimise your stress levels in the lead up to you and your partners big day.


It’s very likely that in the lead up to your wedding you’ll receive a variety of questions from your guests about outfit choices, best routes to the venue, the food and drink available, how much money they should bring with them, parking and a whole host of other things. Of course, you’ll want to put your guests’ minds at ease, but when you’ve already been asked the same question multiple times, it can begin pile on the stress and, not to mention, take your attention away from other things that are more pressing.

A group chat is a great way for information to be spread quickly to many people, and also a task that you could ask your maid of honour to take on. Of course, depending on the size of your wedding, it won’t always be possible to have all guests in the group chat, however, if both you and your partner set up a chat for each of your respective close guests, you will minimise the amount of time spent answering those common questions.

Taking Time Off

Wedding planning can sometimes seem like a full-time job in itself, especially if you plan on having a grand reception with lots of guests. Consequently, making decisions and finalising vital details around your own job can be tiring. To give you peace of mind, consider having a long weekend the week before your wedding – this way you can enjoy the final countdown to the big day, knowing that nothing major is left to do. Finally, book off the two days prior to your wedding so you can fit in things such as nail appointments and ensure you feel your very best on the big day.

In the lead up to your wedding, it’s important to remember that your bridal party are there to help you, so don’t be afraid to ask for help when it comes to picking up your cake or creating your wedding favours.
