Good afternoon! And welcome to the latest addition in the Dunwood Hall Blog. This week we are looking at ways to have a stress free wedding day.

At Dunwood Hall, we pride ourselves on ensuring all of our weddings are relaxed, laid back and enjoyable from the moment you book a viewing with us, to when you leave as a married couple. And after all, if this is the biggest day of your life, you don’t want to spend it being stressed about the details; you need to enjoy each and every moment.

So, how can you make sure you achieve that truly calm and enjoyable day you’ve always dreamed of? Here are our top 5 tips!

1 – Accept Help: You may want to be the super couple who plan, prepare and organise the whole day all by yourself, which of course is pretty impressive. However, unless you are a professional event organiser, or have lots of time on your hands, this can be very hard indeed. So don’t be afraid to ask for help or accept help from those around you in the run up to the big day. Those around you will love being part of the planning too, so make it fun for them, whilst taking the pressure off you.

2 – Delegate on the Day: As you say your ‘I Dos’ you don’t want to have the favours, the canapes or where the kids are running through your mind, so delegate tasks to other guests for them to take care of. Don’t be afraid to tell people what you want them to look after on the day. It’s your day to enjoy as much as you wish, you are not there to work and to make everybody else have a good time while you worry about the details.

3 – Trust Us: We are here for you every step of the way. So make sure you call on us for advice, tips and general guidance on planning your day. We have hosted a huge range of weddings for so many different people, and believe us, no question is too silly! Our wedding co-ordinators are professionals in their field and are here to help you every step of the way. And of course we will be on hand on the day itself to make sure everything runs smoothly. Relax – we’ve got it covered.

4 – Take a Big Day Time Out: From the moment you decided to get married, your wedding day has probably been on your mind 24/7. However, this is what can make it seem more like a full time job than an exciting time. So, be sure to take a day off every now and then! Put away those spreadsheets, hide those bridal magazines and have a day to yourselves enjoying being a couple again before the madness ensues once more. Although it will be an extremely special day in your life, the wedding is the start of your next chapter, so don’t let it be all-consuming in your relationship.

5 – Be Proud of What You’ve Done: Whether Aunt Beryl wouldn’t have chosen those flowers, or your mother wasn’t keen on the cravats, it’s not about them. Be proud of the fantastic day you have planned to your style, your tastes and your dreams. Take time on the big day to look around the room, soak up the smiles of your guests, enjoy the view of the beautiful day you have created to celebrate the beginning of your marriage. Enjoy it, have a stress free wedding day and be proud of the day you got married.

A wedding day should never be stressful. It should be magical and enjoyable from start to finish. Let us help you create the perfect day and book your viewing at our venue today. Contact Us here.
