When planning a wedding, it is extremely easy to get caught up in little details, trying to make everyone happy, family drama, and to forget what really matters. During this time, I have found that checklists lack a very important element that is not found on any checklist, and that is, to Remember. It is crucial to remember to ask yourself, what is truly important? And most importantly, why one is planning the wedding.
Thus far, the wedding planning process has been a journey that has taught me life lessons.
What I have learned:
- There is only one person responsible for a person's happiness, one's self.
- Have faith
- To give my fiance more credit. I never thought how many opinions and great ideas he had that have made it easier. The best part is that the final product would be a reflection of both, it will be Our Wedding.
- There will be drama! There are two options: to be mad or to embrace the process. Use the bumps on the road to lean on each other and to learn about each other.
- Choose your battles.
- Remember what the moment is truly about, no matter what.
- Turn the page onto a new chapter in life, a new chapter written by the bride and groom.
Special thanks to: My fiance, my future in-laws, my grandma, and Chantelle
