”Planning a wedding is fun” – said no one ever.
Organising a wedding is not as delightful as it seems. Being a control freak, what I found most challenging was trying to articulate the notion of a specific ‘vision’ in my head on a piece of paper, and better yet explain it to those that are not understanding the bigger picture, my picture.
Listen up girl, here’s my advice to you…
1- Stand your ground, at the end of the day it’s your moment to shine and not theirs.
2- Be organised, have a bomb of an excel sheet and work your way from there.
3- To do lists are essential, that way you don’t miss a thing.
4- Make demands and be present. What that means is that you have a bridal party under your dictatorship, girls that you can milk with orders – abuse it. Note: Pick your battles though because what goes around does come around, so you might have to pay the price for it someday.
5- There will always be a wedding better than yours, a bride more fabulous, one with nicer hair, and a face that is more on point than yours so work with what you have.
6- Don’t forget that it’s not just about you, him is also involved (at times).
7- There’s no such thing as ‘enough music’ – if you’re going to go way out make sure the VIBE is focus.
8- You’ll never be Tom Cruise so keeping the world happy is MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. You’ll win some and lose some, that’s the cycle of life. Just remember, your shining stars will remain glowing with you and for you.
9- Choose a dress that you feel fabulous in, you’ll radiate.
10- And at the end, love is the only thing that matters!
Looking back today, it’s the smiling faces and warm hearts that were most memorable.
