There are three types of marriage ceremony, Yes, No, and WOW! Wow! ceremonies are the ones that are remembered in the years to come. What do you need to do if you want your ceremony to Wow your family and your friends?
Most of us like to “get it just right” and of course that is often a good thing, but you also have to remember that things will not always be perfect. We can strive for perfection, have high expectations and standards, pay great attention to detail and still life can throw us a curveball. When it does, we all have to learn to deal with the situation, laugh at ourselves and just get on with it!
The groom the night before his wedding went to a restaurant with his best man and groomsman and had a little too much to drink. That night, he called his fiancée’ from the restaurant and told her about the last few anxious days. She wasn’t even phased. “It’s a crazy week, isn’t it?” she said.
Parents; you love them, yes, but their vision on what your wedding should look and feel like does not necessarily complement yours. A wedding can be a hugely exciting, emotional time for parents and sometimes their best intentions can come off as interfering. I know when – or should that read ‘if’ – my daughters get married I’ll have to have very strong words with myself to stop myself overstepping the mark from helpful to interfering.
