How to host a Stress-Less Wedding!

Planning your special day is a big deal, so what can you do to help ease the havoc and stress load? Here are a few of our tips to help you host the perfect wedding with as little stress as possible.

  • TIP ONE: Make a Wedding Planning Timeline and Checklist (and stick to it!!)

This will help you stay organised and on top of time! It could include things like 12 months before- setting a date, putting together a guest list, setting your budget and so on. Ticking these things off as you go will show what you’ve accomplished! When booking at Lazy River, we develop your 'on the day' running sheet which helps make the day run smoothly.

  • TIP TWO: Delegate jobs (recommended: pick organised and trustworthy people…)

Don’t make the easy mistake of taking all the weight on your back, that’s what makes you go bananas. Talk to people like your parents, bridesmaids and reliable people and pass on jobs like organising the music for the reception, decorating the venue so you can get a good night’s sleep, and so on… Don't forget- at Lazy River we set the venue for you!!

  • TIP THREE: Choose a venue and photographer (We heard Lazy River goes alright..!)

Choosing the venue can be one of the hardest decisions, (not to be biased but have you seen the set up at Lazy River Estate!!) so allow some time to go venue scouting and decide what’s best for your needs. Try and get a place that includes catering, accommodation and a great location to limit your amount of work. When choosing your venue, also check if a wedding planner is included, because if they are your work load will be massively reduced! Wedding planners know what they are doing and have huge insights into which suppliers to use!!

  • TIP FOUR: Rest up, and enjoy yourself!

Remember, this day is all about you two. Try not to get caught up in the formalities and your schedule, and have fun! My biggest tip, take 10 minutes with your new husband/wife and go somewhere private and take in the day- it goes so quickly, so stop and smell the roses!

Best of luck planning!
