There is no doubt that weddings can be stressful – the planning, co-ordination and financial pressures involved can turn the most serene bride-to-be into what has commonly become known as ‘Bridezilla’.
An experienced wedding planner can remove most of the sources of stress so that you are able to focus instead on the enjoyable aspects of your big day such as your dress, your bridesmaids, your hen do and honeymoon – all of which can be overshadowed by detail when you are trying to manage it all yourself.
The wedding planners at outstanding Essex wedding venue, Hylands Estate in Chelmsford, are highly accomplished and know all of the best local suppliers to ensure that your day goes smoothly and meets all your expectations. With an experienced team of professionals working behind the scenes to make it all happen, you can relax and enjoy the company of your nearest and dearest who have come to share your special day.
In terms of your own comfort on the day, you could make use of the sumptuous Bridal Suite in the striking Grade II* listed mansion – it will give you a place to retreat to should you wish to gather your thoughts, reapply your bridal makeup or change outfits.
On a more practical level, you’d be well advised to check that your wedding dress is comfortable when you sit down – bodices and other corsetry can be very uncomfortable after a while and you’ll be seated for a long time for your wedding breakfast and speeches.
Similarly, wear your wedding shoes around the house before your big day to make them as comfortable as possible – there really is very little worse than painful feet. With that in mind, it may be advisable to bring a change of shoes with you – after all a change is as good as a rest!
Consider the fact that the weather could be changeable and make sure you have umbrellas and wellington boots should it rain, a shrug, jacket or blanket for colder weather and parasols and sun cream to guard against a hot sun.
