    We hear a lot about the importance of wellbeing these days. According to the University of Oxford if you feel content, energised, connected and balanced you are experiencing wellbeing. The path to our wellbeing includes making time to have fun, creating a positive environment and taking time out to focus, relax and just be. Have these people ever planned a wedding?

    Every bride to be will agree that planning your wedding, whilst being one of the happiest times in your life, is also one of the most stressful times. Co-ordinating suppliers, keeping track of budgets, finding the perfect dress and dealing with guests can leave you feeling completely overwhelmed and totally burnt out and stressed. As well as taking a toll on your mental health, stress can be detrimental to your physical health manifesting with symptoms such as low energy, supressed immune system, insomnia, headaches and many more and quite frankly, nobody has time for that?

    Wedding dress shopping can be both the most exciting and the most nerve-racking experience. It’s completely different to a normal shopping trip and the dress is one of the most, if not ‘the’ most important part of your wedding. Every bride wants to look spectacular but at the same time you need to be comfortable and when you factor in budgets and opinionated mother of the bride, bridesmaids etc. is it any wonder most brides find the shopping experience to be a little more stressful than they bargained for.

    Starting to search for ‘the one’ can be a daunting task and with the internet offering an abundance of ideas and inspiration it can sometimes be hard to know where to start.
