Believe it or not, planning a wedding is not always stress-free and romantic. In fact, it’s one of the most high-pressured and complicated things you are likely to ever do. So it’s not hard to see why many couples disagree throughout the wedding planning process. From choosing a venue to the size of the guest list, you might have very different ideas of what you want. These disagreements are impossible to avoid and can make your planning even more challenging. But by dealing with them quickly and finding suitable solutions, they don’t need to have such an adverse effect. Here are three common disagreements that couples have during the planning process and how you can quickly resolve them.
Working out outfits for the bride and groom can be one of the toughest parts of the planning. Traditionally, the groom isn’t meant to see the bride in her dress until the big day. Much of the time, this stretches to the groom not seeing the dress at all. However, you still might want to take some steps to coordinate your outfits for your wedding. You might have picked a themed wedding so you both need themed outfits. Or perhaps you want to ensure you have some touches of color that match each other. If you want your outfits to show that you’re a couple, here’s what you can match up.
When you first got engaged, you probably had a very clear idea of how your wedding planning was going to happen. In your head, you and your husband-to-be sat together on the floor in pyjamas, cutting and sticking your wedding mood board together. Then, you made a few quick phone calls, and voila! Everything was booked and now all you had to do was turn up on the day. If you are currently mid-way through planning your own wedding, you will know just how wrong this is. It’s ironic that planning for what is meant to be the happiest day of our lives is just so darn stressful. But, don’t let it ruin your big day! There are ways you can avoid some of the most common pre-wedding problems, and ways you can cope should you find yourself faced with any issues.
These days, a wedding is just as much a visual experience as it is an emotional one. We live in the digital era where everyone is used to sharing their dream-like homes, holidays and yes, weddings, on the likes of Pinterest. In the run-up to your big day, you’ve probably spent quite a lot of time perusing picture perfect weddings online for inspiration. One of the best ways to tie all your wedding together is by using a color scheme. It can be scary adding color to an otherwise neutral-colored affair, but there are ways it can be done. Gone are the days when wedding color schemes were garish, tasteless and predictable. The wedding color scheme has been revamped for the 21st century, and can give you that Instagram-perfect wedding you’ve always dreamed of!
White wedding cakes may be traditional, but they are quickly going out of fashion. The recent surge in the popularity of making means that more and more people are wanting a showstopper cake to impress their guests with. Speak to a local bakery or wedding cake company about what you would like and how they can bring your idea to life.
Getting engaged is a huge deal these days. It seems like fewer couples reach the decision to marry each other. And some choose engagement as the alternative to a legally binding ceremony. This is why it is so important to get the proposal and engagement right. You want this stage of your relationship to be the most special part of your bonding so far. But you also need to make sure everyone else knows what it means to you both as a couple.
