Getting married is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. However, the wedding planning was one of the most stressful ordeals of my life. You can plan and prepare all you want, yet you’re still not going to be sure how the day will go. I tried my hardest to be informed. I stayed on top of all the newest trends, read all the blogs, and spent way too much time on Pinterest. Does any of this sound familiar? When the big day arrived I found out the hard way that there were lots of other wedding lessons I did not know about.
In the end, it all worked out great, but I wish I would have known these things beforehand. Below you’re find a few things we think all brides should know before their wedding day. If you’re looking for the best wedding caterers Raleigh NC has to offer, be sure to call Catering by Design. You’ll love our food, service, and free menu tastings.
Knowing These Things Will Keep You Less Stressed
Choose Your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen Wisely
When choosing your bridesmaids and groomsmen, put some careful thought into it. Make sure these people know how to put up with you, especially when you’re overly stressed. They should also be able to deal with intense situations without freaking out. You might need their help if something goes wrong or there’s an emergency. Do not choose people that will bring extra stress or drama. If you’re not sure, it’s probably a good idea to pick someone else.
You’re Probably Not Going To Get Everything You Want
If you’re like most couples, you’re going to be working within the restraints of a wedding budget. Go ahead and accept the fact that you’re probably not going to get every single thing you’ve dreamed of having. That’s okay! Don’t stress out about it. It’s not the end of the world. Figure out what the most important elements are and focus your time and resources on those.
Recreating Your Favorite Wedding Photo Is Almost Impossible
You hired your wedding photographer because you liked their style, prices, personality, etc. They’ve probably told you to make a list of all the shots you want to capture. However, don’t get too upset when you can’t perfectly recreate your favorite wedding photo. It’s always going to be different. You’re probably not going to be in the exact location, the people in the picture will be different, and it’s doubtful that you’re working with the same photographer. It’s okay to try your hardest, we’re just saying that you should keep your expectations in check.
There’s lots more things brides should know, but we cannot cover them all. However, if you head on over to part two of this series you will find more of our favorites.
