Eliminate wedding stress

Eliminate wedding stress

Q. Our wedding is quickly approaching; what advice can you share for a stress-free day?

A. Charlotte Narciso says: Your wedding day should be the happiest day of your life, so feeling joyful and not stressed should be a top priority! Following these simple hints and tips will give you a day to remember for all the right reasons!

- Be organised and create a checklist for the day to run smoothly.

- Create a timeline, so everyone knows what's going on throughout the day.

- Make a wedding website with all the information people need to know before and on the big day. That way, you won't get asked many questions in the run-up to the event.

- Enjoy some pamper time for yourself before the big day.

- Allow your suppliers/venue to manage the order of the day.

- Aim to be ready 30 minutes before your ceremony; this allows you to feel relaxed and no one is running around at the last minute.

- The best and final advice for a stress-free wedding day is to relax as you've done everything possible to create the perfect day. Now is the time to enjoy yourself and be present in the moment.
