“A wedding is a party, not a performance. If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly.”
Give Yourself Time
The average couple begins planning their wedding 12-16 months out. Giving yourself extra time really helps to keep stress levels down. It gives you the ability to get tons of stuff done early and time to save for the things that you may really want. You only get to plan your wedding once, so enjoy it!
Don’t Get Caught Up In “Perfection”
Through my years of working in the wedding industry, I’ve learned many things. One thing that is always at the forefront of my mind, is that nothing, and no one is perfect. I know this might sound scary coming from someone who plans and coordinates events, but the truth is…things happen. Truthfully, some of the best moments are the ones that aren’t planned. It’s the candid moments that make life real. Embrace the unexpected, and don’t let the image of perfection taint the big picture. After all, this is only the beginning :)
