It's just the easiest thing in the world! So long as you're organised there's just no way it can be difficult. I'll admit we did have a little struggle finding the venue last year (when your Mum is the youngest of 8 children you don't get away with a small venue!) but once that was booked it's just gone so smoothly I'm actually starting to wonder if we've done something wrong, I'm half expecting to turn up on the day and realise we've forgotten something obvious like the cake or dinner!
Today we booked our entertainment, florist appointment this weekend and then we're done! With 6 months to spare! Simples!
I always maintained that this period would not be stressful, I can't imagine anything worse than getting to the wedding day and just being relieved because the stress is over. If the build-up isn't enjoyable then don't do it! Just got to make the most of every minute!
