EYW (ENJOY YOUR WEDDING)… TIPS FOR MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR BIG DAY
A common regret of married couples that have planned a wedding- brides in particular- is that they let the stress overshadow the journey. Planning a wedding is stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. The engagement phase of your relationship should be one of joy and celebrations. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and overextended in preparation for the happiest day of your life, then you’re defeating the purpose. Stay calm and enjoy on.
Call In The Pros. A good wedding planner is like a best friend, location scout, second set of eyes, advocate, mediator, accountant, wedding encyclopedia, proactive do-er, and creative genius all wrapped up in one wonderful person. Their job is to make your life easier, and to not let you down. If only they could continue on to be your life coach post-wedding, you’d be set for eternity.
Here’s why you need a planner: You have a life, a job, a family, a fiancé, and now a wedding to plan. Planning a wedding is a major undertaking; quite frankly, it can be a full-time job. Although the work that leads up to the wedding is planned with fun and enjoyment in mind, the tasks to get you there aren’t always reflective of this. It can be burdensome and tedious at times.
