Stress free wedding planning

This is the time of year that I begin hearing from a lot of newly engaged couples. Many indicate that the process seems daunting.

Talk if over before taking the plunge.

Planning a wedding is one of the most emotional, and hence potentially stressful, events in life. The key to having a successful wedding is to be true to yourselves, and have clear boundaries. If you know who you are and what you want, and communicate clearly and kindly with others involved in the planning, it will help immensely.

Wedding planning takes organization.

INVESTMENT: Almost no one has unlimited resources, but even if money is not an issue, there is an emotional investment that is made as well. The budget is just an obvious example of knowing your limits; there need to be parameters when making all of the innumerable decisions that come with wedding planning.

CONFLICT: You will likely come into some conflict from time to time with your fiancé, family, friends, and vendors. The old sayings: ‘don’t sweat the small stuff’ comes to mind right now. Remember that a wedding is not about impressing other people, but making a commitment to a lifetime together. You are planning a celebration, but you are also planning for your future. When you show the depth of your commitment and reveal your true selves, you are sure to make the right impression. Take some time before launching into the plans to discuss your ideas, values and goals for the wedding celebration and get on the same page before contacting vendors.

Conflict can happen.

COMMUNICATION: Planning a wedding is like marriage itself. Many decisions can and should be made together, and compromises must be reached. Dealing with conflict in a healthy way bodes well for a successful relationship and a successful wedding.

There is much more I could add, but I’ll save it for another blog!
