This means that once the initial choices have been made, everything is looked after by the staff at the venue.  If the thought of being on show in front of all those people is too much for you, you could consider eloping. There are plenty of places where you can be married quickly and easily. What about the Special Memories Chapel in Las Vegas or Gretna Green in Scotland? In Vegas, you can even hire a wedding dress, so that’s another stressful issue about the way!

Having all the items such as pushchairs, cots and changing mats; before baby makes an appearance is a great way of feeling calm and prepared.
