You spend sleepless nights on planning your wedding,
Is it possible to have a totally perfect Wedding? Can a couple really expect to get that perfect in every-way wedding? How practical can that expectation be? Even when the budget doesn’t totally play the tune? With so many variables can a perfectly planned wedding actually happen?
Well, it really depends on how realistic and thorough that dream wedding is preplanned.
What are the big flaws that could really mess up the nuptials?
• The officiate with the marriage license
• The Groom
• The Bride
These three items are the only things that you absolutely need. The rest is all just frills and add-ons. Missing one of these three “ingredients” and that will be the only fatal error or flaw that could mess up the marriage plans.
You’re about ready to start to rant and rave that that is not so, your list is a mile long. You’re right naturally but… (there is always a but in every equation isn’t there).
Ask yourself these questions and answer them truthfully. Will the wedding not take place if Joe Schmoe doesn’t cater the wedding? No, there are dozens of others maybe not as popular as good old Joe, but lots of others that can do the job just as well, maybe even better, because they might not be as busy and rushed.
The groom’s suit rental came in too tight or too short. Darn, lucky he was smart enough to try it on ahead of time. The men’s wear shop where it was ordered from will have a tailor handy who can fix what ever was wrong. (and if not there is always the nudist beach). I saw that little smile on your face. You’re starting to see that any of these issues are not issues serious enough to have a stress attack over. The same goes for the attendants outfits.
The first thing to remember when you start to add those frillies is to keep your goals and plans realistic. Make a list of concerns that focus on the budget, location, reception spot and the wedding dress, caterer etc
• Make your budget a top priority.
• Be practical with your wedding goals.
• Do not set unrealistic or impractical goals these could lead to disillusionment.
• Do not spend a fortune on your wedding dress
• Be flexible about things… (i.e. There really is not that much difference between the cream and ivory dress etc.)
• Do not hesitate to ask how much things cost
• Make a draft of your wedding plan
• Knowing the exact things you desire makes it less difficult to follow thru with
Planning and coordinating everything down to last little detail is probably what you will be doing until the very last minute possible. Very few brides have ever listened to reason and not had a few sleepless nights and agonized about that mile long list.
However try to relax and remember that the only thing you really need is each other the rest is all just frills.
