The dress, the suit, the hair, the makeup, the invites, the cake – these are only a pinch of what will be taking up your To Do list when it comes to your pre-wedding planning. Avoid becoming the next Bride or Groomzilla and take note of The Olsen’s top tips to creating a drama-free wedding day.
Remember your why
Don’t lose track of why you are both taking the plunge. Your closest friends and family may be all you want to surround you. A small, refined and intimate gathering can sometimes be the best way to celebrate.
Don’t let the weather rain on your parade
Steer away from boxing yourself into a particular wedding season based on the off chance of sunny weather. Instead, pick a date that is special to you both and let this guide you.
Find a venue dedicated to you
A venue that nurtures your every need, every step of the way, is a must. When frustration and stress hit, you want to be able to rely on a devoted team and dedicated wedding coordinator who can assist with menu tastings, suggest suppliers and be there on the day to ensure everything goes off without a hitch.
Those that play together stay together. Find a place where you and your closest clan can congregate and celebrate until you just can’t no more. Don’t fuss over splitting a cab or Uber home, or wrapping up the party early. Instead, why not make a weekend of it and have your guests sleepover at The Olsen. There’s nothing like a good debrief and giggle about the night that was, over a scrumptious recovery breakfast.
Flexibility is key
Say no to the cookie cutter and let your wildest desires reign. It’s important to find a venue that wants to work with you in shaping your ideal day, down to the finest of details. Saying no without an alternate option, simply shouldn’t be the order of the day.
