My partner and I got married in September 2016. While I always thought I would love the wedding planning process as I absolutely love organizing things, I actually found the whole process incredibly stressful. Some of that stress was caused by outside factors such as suppliers cancelling and one company we were using (and who we had paid in full) going bust!
Another stress factor was that we simply took on too much DIY in a bid to save money – this kind of backfired in the sense we ended up wishing we had spend more money to have a less stressful time in the run up to our wedding.
That said I feel I learnt a hell of a lot while planning our wedding and I hope I can pass some of the wisdom on to you in the posts below.
