ADVISE FROM WEDDING PROFESSIONALS & NEWLYWEDS
1. Enjoy the Journey
Your wedding planning should be no different. There are a lot of decisions to be made. Cakes to taste. So many dresses to try on. Pinterest Inspiration Boards to make. Guest List and Seating Charts to coordinate. Showers to attend. Songs to choose. And so much more.
So this time should be a journey that evolves into a beautiful compilation of the bride’s vision, sweetened with the groom’s quirky ideas, and salted with some parental influence. From the very start to the very end... enjoy the process. Enjoy all of the special moments along the way. Enjoy the Journey!
2. Get Real with the Timeline
3. Be a Duck
The alternative creates something that looks a little like this:
4. Hire Help!
Every bride is different. Some want to jump in and plan every tiny aspect of their wedding and tackle every DIY project and craft. Others want to hire someone to take care of these details. If you are the latter, by all means hire a planner! She will guide you every step of the way.
This will leave you free to spend the day before at the salon, getting a facial, or a massage. Take a long bubble bath. Rest. Eat. Hydrate. Have some champagne with your bridesmaids or throw a couple beers back with your groomsmen. Proceed into the biggest day of your life well rested and calm… ready to enjoy your dream wedding.
5. Just Breathe
See that joy on your mother’s face. Remember that. See your friends dancing and laughing. Smile and take a mental snapshot. Your beautifully decorated venue… take a panoramic picture with your eyes and appreciate how perfect it is.
Look at your spouse and tell yourself to remember how in love you are at this very moment. Don’t let yourself be hurried or rushed through your ceremony and reception. You've waited a long time for this day. Take all the little “moments” you want and just breathe.
