Your wedding planning shouldn’t be a nightmare. It’s supposed to be fun and should I dare say… done together. But here’s the lowdown. Here’s how to plan your wedding in one easy swoop.
- Work out what’s important.
This list could be long or short. It can be really short. It could consist of “We will be married at the end of the day.” If that’s it, then your wedding planning will be a piece of cake. A good one, not a $4 mudcake from Woolies. If you can remember that getting married is the only thing that matters then when you get to the florist on your wedding day and they say… We’ve only got four of those flowers today so we had to substitute. You’ll be fine.
When you get to the reception and the cake has a pale blue tinge when asked for turquoise. It’s ok. You’ve already won. You’re married.
When that list gets longer, the complications arise and the expectations soar and sometimes the reality can plummet. It’s ok to want nice things. It’s ok to want a lot of things. But make the list and work out what you can control and the rest… you just have to be like Elsa and let it go.
You can of course refuse to pay your bills and fuck off to the Maldives on your honeymoon, but you’ll be coming home eventually. Be clear about what you want. You’re much more likely to get it.
2. Be present!
Your wedding day is hopefully the only one you’ll get. If you can get there and spend three minutes looking at the love of your life at least a couple of times during the day – it will help.
I factor that into your ceremony space so you get micro minutes to breathe but for the sake of all of us – who haven’t worn that pretty dress – do a spin or two and make sure you breathe it all in.
