You know your mother has always dreamed of giving you the Big White Wedding, the one her parents couldn’t afford for her. You know your dad will be nervous but proud in equal measure and has been keeping his top-hat specifically for your big-day. You’ve got to accommodate every diet from gluten-free to vegan, via all the allergies and intolerances and that’s before you’ve even started on the table plan. Just who is this wedding about anyway?
Planning your wedding to please everyone, is a sure way to make it a stressful process and something you’d choose to forget rather than a memory to treasure. Why not be bold when planning your wedding, and decide to please only yourselves? Here are my top tips on making the wedding of your dreams a reality, by choosing not to be focussed on your guests:
Smiling, that was key for me. Reminding myself every time I thought it was all too silly or complicated or political, that the reason we were in this crazy situation was because we were getting married. We were starting the rest of our lives together, and the only people who mattered in that chapter was the two of us. Remember to smile, to focus on the love you have for each other and remember, the guests will all leave at the end of your wedding day; you two get to stay for the rest of the journey.
