When you start planning and as you approach the wedding day, the key to being stress free is to be well planned and organised.

You’ve decided to get married, and now it’s time to plan the wedding – the official celebration of your love and commitment.

As you plan this wonderful day, you both will continue to feel great joy, but may also experience a few butterflies and a little confusion – it is normal.
Organising a ceremony and reception is a big undertaking. There are so many elements involved it’s important to use checklists or a planner to ensure the smallest of details are not missed.

Remember what this day is really about – a celebration of love. Stay focused, and keep organized. Try and delegate as many tasks as possible, to friends and family members, for extra assistance. Tactfully decline ideas, suggestions and advice that are not in line with what you are wanting; remember this is your wedding day. The importance of reconfirming all dates, times and locations with all vendors cannot be over emphasized. You deserve a wonderful wedding day filled with many happy, stress-free memories.

The Bride & Groom magazine planner (see http://www.brideandgroom.co.nz/site/brideandgroom/files//Bride&Groom%20WeddingPlanner.pdf) is divided into sections and covers different aspects of your wedding, from the ceremony to the honeymoon. It has completely everything you need!
The sections include basic information, ideas and suggestions along with space to make your own notes and revisions. There is also a countdown to help keep you on track, an expenses worksheet, an important contacts list and a to-do list, so you can tick off as you go. Print it off, keep it in a folder and once the big day has passed, it can become a wedding keepsake.
