Surprises before the Wedding
You think you’ve prepared everything – the catering, DJ, guest list, venue, dress, bridal party and even a plan B if the weather is bad. But there are some surprises before the wedding that you may not have thought about. Let’s take a look at a few of them so you can be as prepared as possible!
- One of the surprises before the wedding is that the ten minutes before the ceremony are the most nerve wracking. You have spent so much time getting ready, having a few drinks (or not) and having a lot of fun with your bridesmaids. It’s easy to forget sometimes that now you have to walk down the aisle in front of family and friends! But, not to worry, just remember your better half is waiting for you and this is a day to celebrate. You might be anxious you’ll step on your dress or say the wrong thing but those are what make ceremonies memorable and personal.
2 . A second thing to consider as surprises before the wedding is that you may want some time alone. You’d think that this day is meant to be shared with everyone and you are obligated to greet and thank all your guests. That’s not wrong but you also might want to carve out just a few minutes for you and your new partner. You both have made a serious, life long commitment and it can be nice to just be alone for a moment.
3. Lastly, something that you already know but we want to mention is that it will never go exactly as planned. You can prepare for all contingencies but life is unexpected and chaotic. That’s what makes it beautiful too! So, if you embrace it and go with the flow we promise you’ll be happier. Ask yourself, is can this be solved easily? Does this affect my guests? Am I still having fun? If the answers are pretty to fix then just go ahead and enjoy your big day!
Days leading up to wedding day and wedding day especially are full of surprises, some good and some not-so-good. They happen in every wedding. The only difference being how you manage the last minute surprises and it is obvious that bride or groom can’t be expected to handle them, this is where wedding planner comes in like knight in shining armour handling the surprises, the difficult family members, malfunctioning apparatus and so much more. So hiring a wedding planner may be a little expensive but it certainly lends peace of mind to the wedding parties.
