Getting married, something that should be the happiest time of our lives, right? Well, that is what we are meant to think anyway. So then, how come it’s also a time that can be fraught with problems? I reckon it’s because it’s such a big deal, it’s easy to get carried away and want it all to be perfect. Luckily, for any future bride and groom, I have put together a guide on how to deal with some of the most common wedding problems, below.
I don’t know about you, but something that it really important to me is being original and not just following the herd. Unfortunately, with the engagement and wedding industry being such a big deal, it’s hard to not repeat the trends and fashions that everyone else has access to.
However, I have discovered that you can give your nuptials the personal touch by focusing on a few things and customizing them. Things like picking from a selection of diamond engagement ring that you can further personalize to make them just that little bit different and more special to you.
Or how about customizing the wedding around something that you and your fiance love? Like a particular TV program, particular sport, or film?
Having an intimate ceremony
Weddings are meant to be big, white, and have everyone you know they’re right? Well, not necessarily! As not everyone is an extrovert and relishes the idea of showing off in front of a massive crowd.
In fact, some of us just want a small wedding with a few of the most important people there. But how can you do this without offending Auntie Marge that you haven’t seen since 1990, but will take great offense if she was left out?
Well, why not try explaining it to some of your friends and see how they take it? If people seemed to be outraged, then the solution may be to have a smaller service and then a bigger party afterward to keep the pace.
The idea of getting married abroad really appeals to me. But I know that many couples that choose this route come across a lot of resistance from friends and family members. This may be because it breaks with tradition, or it can be about the cost involved.
So what is the best way of dealing with this? Well, I think first of all you have to understand that some folks just aren’t going to be able to afford to come. No matter how much they want to. So don’t make them feel bad if they have to turn your invite down.
Also, remember that it’s important to have things the way you want them for your big day. So don’t let others expectations put you off of what you actually want.
Not spending a fortune
Lastly, everyone knows that weddings can cost a lot. But you can keep the costs down by ensuring that you do as much as you can yourself.
If you are anything like me, you will enjoy the making the centerpieces and invites too. So it’s really not too much of a hassle to DIY and save a bit on the cost of everything.
