DIY Wedding : Top 5 tips to eliminate stress
Whether you are having your wedding at home or in a venue (hopefully involving a marquee) decide as a couple what your priorities are for your wedding day. From flowers and food to DJ’s, decorations and dance floors – the list is endless! Book your most important items first to avoid disappointment.
PICK A BRIDAL THEME
From rustic dining trestles, sleek mirror-topped tables and circus performers – trust us we have seen it all! Use the internet and bridal magazines for inspiration and save as many pictures as possible. Pinterest is a great platform to use online or alternatively a good old-fashioned mood board works brilliantly to collaborate all your favourite images. We love being able to fully envisage a bride’s ideal look and then bringing this to life on their special day!
Are you being financially savvy? Booking the cheapest suppliers may seem a good idea initially, but more often than not, price = quality. Research your chosen suppliers thoroughly. Is their website legitimate? How many followers do they have on Instagram? Can you visit their premises and get a real feel for the company? Try to look beyond the black and white and choose companies who will provide a service that is not only value for money, but above and beyond all expectations. Only book with suppliers you 100% trust to deliver what they promise. We have an army of fantastic suppliers we can recommend to you once you have secured your marquee booking.
Do not try to become super-bride, everybody needs help! Once you have chosen your bridesmaids and groomsmen find some tasks you can delegate to them. Your loved ones are there to help and you will certainly feel much calmer once your ‘to-do’ list dwindles. At Greenhill, we are recognised for creating a stress-free experience for our clients. We will liaise with all your suppliers, advise on theming and even offer a technician on the day.
RELAX & ENJOY
The biggest tip we can give any bride is to RELAX! Focus on what really matters, smile, have fun and enjoy your day. From our 23 years experience of wedding planning we have learnt that it always comes together perfectly on the day. If your wedding is in trusted hands you can sip that champagne and take in every special moment. Remember, this will probably be the only wedding you will ever have!
