Weddings can be a tale of two events, the one you envisioned and the one you have.
I'm not saying it won't be the way you dreamed it would be.
I'm not saying it won't be fantastic.
It just might be a little different in a few ways.
How will you survive?
1. Plan in reality.
2. Enjoy the process and event day.
"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it"
The biggest reason that an event doesn't pan out is due to poor planning. Either not planning completely or not planning realistically.
If you are overwhelmed...
1- Do less and do it well.
2. Hire help
Is it realistic?
Bounce ideas off friends, read about them and ask your coordinator.
Someone who has done many weddings will be able to tell you if they think it will work, how they've seen it work in the past, possible problems and easy tweaks to make it work awesomely!
This is easier said than done and is accomplished best by...
-knowing your event is well planned
We live in a fast paced, multitasking do it all world.
Learn to take time for yourself-
-reading (no checking your phone!)
-taking a nap
-cook a slow dinner
- go out for drinks and sit in on a quiet patio with your fiance
- be still & be intentional.
Do less, do it better, ask for help and learn... to Enjoy Your Event!
