Keep Calm, Relaxed & Organised When You Plan Your Wedding

One of the most important things that a lot of people neglect in life is rest. Be honest with yourself, when was the last time you scheduled in some time for yourself? Just a little bit of time where you don’t have to move out of your comfort zone and you can just relax.

It is SO common for a person to say “I don’t have time to relax”. But why aren’t we making self love a priority? We all know we could potentially burn out without a healthy balance of rest so why aren’t we resting.

Life has become tiring. How many times in one week do you tell someone you’re tired. Our daily lives seem to be getting busier and our bodies seem to be getting more tired.

Planning a wedding can be a tiring task to complete. There can be a lot of things to take care of and there seems to be a pressure that comes with these plans. You don’t get to plan a wedding every day and you want everything to work out perfectly so that can sometimes lead you to fall down a slippery slope that will leave you feeling overwhelmed.

In order to manage this we designed a free downloadable keep calm wedding guide. We have filled it with helpful tips on how you can relax, great calming product recommendations and some great techniques for reducing stress.

Keep Up To Date With Our Wedding Fair Calendar

One of the best parts of planning a wedding is the wedding fairs. It is your opportunity to check out the latest trends, sample some tasty cakes, chat to a variety of entertainers and figure out what type of wedding you are going to plan.

However, how do you keep track of where and when these events are taking place? 

Well, we have our very own wedding fair calendar which is regularly updated with the latest wedding fairs that are taking place in a town near you. A great feature of our calendar is that anyone can add a fair that they know about. So, if you notice that your local wedding fair isn’t on our calendar then you can add the fair yourself so more people can hear about it.

See if they’re any wedding fairs taking place in your local area and add them to our calendar! Maybe we will see you there!
