Wedding Tips

Pre-Wedding Nerves

You are not alone. Everyone goes though the “pre-wedding jitters”.
Are you doing the right thing?
Should you just elope?
All these questions come to mind.

These thoughts and feeling sometimes get even stronger the closer you get to the big day.
It’s not uncommon for us to hear from couples that consider eloping instead as the stress of all the planning gets too much to handle.
This can sometimes come from external factors outside of your relationship with your significant other.

Family issues can sometimes rear their ugly heads, the stress of choosing the right vendors, logistic issues, unexpected costs you didn’t
plan on … the list seems endless of all the issues that might put doubt in your minds about going through with the full wedding experience.

Only YOU can answer the question if you should proceed or not, but many couples think it’s unusual or a “sign” that they shouldn’t proceed.
It can be comforting to know that you are not alone. It happens to just about every couple in the history of marriage!

Being married and having a wedding is a serious committment and not one to be taken lightly.

This is a life changing event in your life and one that you will always remember.

It is important to stay connected closely to your significant other and not let the stress turn into a stress on your relationship.

Take time to step away from it all. Arrange a date night, a weekend away, even just a walk in a park to both remember your love for each other
and refocus on your personal relationship as a reminder of why you are doing this.

A marriage is about your love for each other. All the other elements (the reception, the flowers, the dress, the entertainment, the food etc) are
all the little extras that, in the end are just that … extras. It’s your connection to each other and love for each other should always remain
the focus and core of everything you do.

It’s YOUR special day.
Let me make it PERFECT for you!
