The Five Golden Rules 5
I have read a book a few months ago. The book was about “What makes people successful”.
One particular habit that is most useful to wedding planning is Habit Number Two: “ Begin with the end in mind.” This is based on the principle that all things are created twice – first in the mind, then in the physical.
Problems can arise when couples don’t have a clear picture of the type of wedding they want. Without a clear plan, it’s easier to get talked into things you don’t really need or want.
No two weddings are ever going to be the same, so every wedding is an exception to the rules of wedding etiquette and planning. You have in front of you a clean canvas ready to be painted. You may hear people say “ It’s your day, do whatever you want.” This is true to some extent, but it’s also true the day happens to your partner’s, your partner’s parent’s and your guest’s day as all.
Consequently, it’s as silly to say “ Do whatever you want” as it is to say “ Try to please everyone” These are the extremes you should be avoiding.
Find the middle ground that resolves around a sense of balance between you, your family, your friends and your guests.
Sit down with your partner and create a vision of your wedding. It may change over time and this is fine, but at least you will have made a start.
- What do we want the guests to say about our wedding day?
- What do we want our parents and immediate family to say about our wedding day?
- What do we want the bridal party to say about our wedding day?
- What do we want to say about our wedding day?
Keep these outcomes in mind as you begin to organize your wedding.
