7 TIPS FOR A SANE AND JOYFUL WEDDING
- 1Be yourself. You don't need to adhere to anyone else's vision for your big day. Pick a venue, theme (if you want one) and vibe (formal, casual, whimsical, etc.) that reflects who you are and what makes you insanely happy.
- 2It's about you and your partner. It's easy to get sucked into picking linens, learning the names of flowers, and figuring out the proper way to address a formal invitation to a medical doctor. None of that really matters at the end of the day – you're about to embark on a wonderful life change. If anything you're doing is making you feel freaked out, stressed out, or not true to yourselves, take a step back.
- 3Have fun! A wedding should be full of joy, whether it's a big bash or an intimate backyard affair. Show guests a good time, whatever your definition of that is, and don't be afraid to have a sense of humor.
- 4Be inclusive. Involve family members as much as you can, and in ways that won't compromise your sanity (family + money = crazy!). Include their names on your wedding invitation, even if they're not paying for the wedding. Thank them early and often.
- 5Don't break the bank. A pile of debt is not a great way to start a marriage. Spend what you can afford – it's the spirit of the day that matters. If you can't afford a lavish do, know that It can be just as wonderful to have an intimate ceremony with only a handful of your closest friends and family.
- 6Pick a style and color palette and stick to it. You know those amazing magazine spreads and photo shoots? The secret of professional stylists is editing. Pick one or two primary colors (and one or two accent colors, if you like) and stick to them. Once you've chosen a style, say nautical, don't stray from it even though you also love horses or trees. Consistency will help everything stay simple, beautiful, and stylish on your big day.
- 7Nothing's perfect. No matter how much you obsess about every wedding detail, accidents happen. The flower girl will decide to do a chicken dance as she's walking down the aisle. Someone will say something wildly inappropriate in a toast. Laugh and roll with it – those unexpected snafus make for the best memories.
