It’s just over two weeks till I get married to the woman of my dreams so I decided to write a few posts on the joys (or pains) of wedding planning. I must first state that I have not done a lot of the wedding planning. That award goes to my beautiful bride to be and my wonderful almost mother-in-law. <– she hates that term. What I am saying is, Erika and mom have done an amazing job planning and here’s my thoughts. Enjoy!
My first bit of wedding planning advice for anyone planning a wedding or just complaining about a wedding. When you plan YOUR wedding, DO WHATEVER THE HECK YOU WANT! <– read this statement over and over and over…now once more.
If you want to do something traditional or nothing even close to traditional, DO IT! If you want to wear a white dress or a black dress, DO IT! If you want a fire eating clown for entertainment, DO IT! Hire one ASAP! Do it and don’t care what ANYONE has to say…expect the person you are going to marry of course, and maybe if someone else is paying for it. You two should agree on things.
If you aren’t the one planning your wedding. Keep your wonderful opinions to yourself. You are probably just jealous someone else is planning a wedding and you are not. That’s fine…just don’t vocalize your own frustrations to anyone (especially the bride), except maybe your counselor. You should probably talk to them.
Let the bride and groom enjoy THEIR day. Let them enjoy THEIR planning. Let them do what THEY want to. Let your opinions and traditions sit in YOUR stomach and be happy for your friends! Hopefully they will be happy for your big day as well.
Thanks for reading! Part two coming next week!
