- #WeddingTalk: What I've Learned -
Planning a wedding can seem incredibly daunting. As the type of person who is impatient with planning (let's do this now) and also as the type of girl who never imagined her wedding (I was convinced I would live alone in a cottage and pick up gardening), I was intimidated by the thought of creating the logistics of the most important party.
Luckily for me, my fiance, and my wedding: I like challenges.
It's 8 months until the wedding - YAY! - and what have I learned?
- Save the drama. Remember what this wedding is about: your marriage. You are a part of a team now, so consult your teammate. Always listen to your partner's wants and needs. Be decisive. Know when to compromise.
- Be a lady. Deal with stress in a mature way. Napkin choices are not the end of the world. Disagreements happen. Put on some lipstick, fix your posture, and get over it.
- Google Drive. Planning a wedding with a long-distance fiance has me using Google Drive left and right. Guest list? Throw it on the drive. Wedding budget? Save the Date proofs? Song list? You better believe it's all on the drive. Easily accessible anywhere, any time.
- Prioritize. This seems vague, but hear me out. Truly think about what you and your fiance value and enjoy. Photos? Food? Music? Ambiance? Answering this will ultimately form your wedding. We both love photos - so we amped up that photographer budget. I'm not a huge fan of decorating, so I opted for a venue with character. Food is life, so catering is top on our list. Understand that every facet of your big day cannot be #1.
There you have it - what I've learned so far! I'm sure there's more to come, so thanks for following along, lovelies xx
