A recent pork lovers contest found a newlywed couple having a bacon themed wedding that won them a honeymoon to the pork capital of the world: Baltimore, MD. The couple had everything from bacon wrapped bouquets to throwing bacon bits at the end of the ceremony instead of rice. Not all newlyweds envision their dream wedding to be covered in bacon, and if you’re stressed out about wedding planning there are a number of things that you can do to ensure that your big day goes as smoothly as possible.
Your wedding can be one of the most hectic moments that you and your partner will experience together. In many cases the bride gets so caught up in making sure that the wedding is picture perfect that they begin to lose the value of why they’re planning a wedding in the first place. There are a lot of decisions that the groom takes no part in, depending on the type of relationship you have. Trying to plan a wedding that is for the both of you will help eliminate much of the stress that wedding planning can bring into a relationship. You must remember every day to value your partner, and not to get lost in your wedding plans. A wedding is just for the day, a marriage is for a lifetime. Ensuring that you continue to do the things you did before the wedding plans as a couple will help keep you both happy.
Ask for help, weddings can be fun to plan if you allow for others to help you when you need it. There will be times that decisions will be made without both the bride and groom, and these are the moments where you can call your friends and family and have fun with your decision making. While allowing others to partake in your wedding, usually the bridal party and in laws, it will give your wedding day more value to those who aren’t getting married that day. This will also alleviate some of the stress and feelings of being overwhelmed. In addition, having help gives you the security that you aren’t handling everything on your own when your partner is unavailable.
A major thing to always remember when planning your wedding is to keep an open mind and open heart. There will be times where the idea you’ve had in your mind just won’t work out the way you want it to, and by remaining open-minded you will automatically reduce the stress of having everything done a certain way. It’s great to have a specific idea of how you want your wedding to look like and your wedding day to go, however life is unexpected and it would be silly to put all your coins in one bag. Always have a plan B, this way if something does happen you’re already prepared for it. Being nervous and stressed out is normal, but having your heart and mind set on one thing that may or may not work can lead to disaster. For instance, are you planning an outdoor wedding? You should definitely have a plan B in case the weather doesn’t turn out the way you had hoped.
Always remember that this wedding is to celebrate the love between you and your future lifelong partner, try not to turn against each other while planning this big day. Continue to show each other love and appreciation. A happy marriage starts with a happy and healthy relationship. This can and will get crazy during the time that your wedding is being planned, particularly when it comes to picking out custom bridesmaid dresses, so just make sure to not get crazy on each other, unless it’s in a good way. The smoothest and best part of a wedding will ultimately be with the bride and groom’s happiness.
