The big day has arrived. He proposed and you said yes and a rousing round of congratulations a waits! You are floating on cloud nine and you should be, but wait now the actual work begins. Let’s face it, most women (and some men) dream and plan for this most special day, the wedding day to arrive. It’s funny how some people long for this day; they start wishing and dreaming and planning for this time in life at a very early age. My sister just couldn’t wait; growing up it was all about the wedding literally all the time. I promise you by the time she was eighteen I (yes me) could rattle off so many of her wedding details; the venue, time of year, wedding size, wedding decor, dress, cake and even where she wanted to go on her honeymoon.
Wedding Planning – Wishing and Dreaming and Planning….
Whether you are a person that has longed for the wedding day to arrive or not, lots goes into planning this extra special day. And when the time does finally get here it will speed by faster that you can say “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”. The best way to have the day you dreamed of is as the boy scouts always say be prepared. The foundation to a great wedding is to be yourself, be realistic, budgeting, ask for advice, don’t be afraid to delegate and yes be prepared. It is never too soon for the wedding planning to begin and whether you are working with a wedding planner or spearheading all the details yourself, utilizing a wedding planning checklist will be a huge (HUGE) help. By writing down everything and tracking each and every single item, you will be sure to not miss any details.
Wedding Planning – Don’t Forget to Enjoy!
Once all those oh so important decisions have been made and the wedding planning and organizing has been completed that can mean only one thing - the big day is here. So now is the time to relax, enjoy and have fun, right! I know what you’re thinking, so, so easy for me to say. Relax…no way is that possible! As we have blogged here many a time, with so much that goes into planning a wedding something is bound to go south (and not in a good way). No matter how many times things are checked and re-check you just never do know what the day will bring. So take a breath, don’t blow a casket and really once the wedding is here there isn’t much you can do about it. Even my sister with all her pre wishing and dreaming and planning had some hiccups, the venue was tardy in setting up and the band was late, to name just a few. But she had it in her mind that no matter what happened she was going to go with the flow, not stress out and had every intention to enjoy this time. And you know what she did exactly that.
Ready for a chuckle? Thanks to our friends at YouTube this video proves you really just never do know.
The take away is things most always never go as planned. So remember to enjoy this special day and bear in mind that a wedding is only one day but a marriage lasts a lifetime! So be sure to take it all in and have fun during this extra special moment of joy!
