Many things should be included in a wedding: the beautiful dress, the amazing cake, the stunning décor, the unforgettable music and entertainment, and the list can go on and on.
If there’s something that should never, ever be included in a Virginia wedding, that is regrets. They are simply not allowed on such a beautiful and happy day in your life – so leave them behind when you make your first step down the aisle!
How to do that? Here are some tips to help you really enjoy the magic of your wedding:
- Accept that “perfection” is not only a relative term, but a pretty unattainable one too. A lot of things can be perfect, sure. But sometimes, no matter how much you plan and how attentive you are with all the details, things can go wrong. And that’s OK. Accept that things might not go as planned, know how to handle them, and move on with a big smile on your face. This day’s about waltzing through the beautiful memories, not about worrying in any way.
- Accept that focusing too much on the big decisions will actually make you lose your focus on the big picture. If the stress of taking a big decision is making you feel nauseous, take a step back. Go somewhere with your SO and relax. Binge-watch your favorite TV show. Do anything BUT wedding planning, recharge your batteries, and then come back to that decision. Things will be a lot clearer, we promise.
- It’s really not about the THINGS you BUY for your wedding. It’s about the experiences, the memories, the emotions you create. This event celebrates your love story – and love (as J-Lo taught us long time ago) “don’t cost a thing”. Focus on creating a superb experience, not on following the trends, on following the etiquette, or following what your mom wants from this day.
- Last, but not least, remember that you really don’t have to overdo it with the customization. Sometimes, taking the traditional way is the easiest and most beautiful way to handle certain wedding aspects. Feel free to do it when it’s suitable for you.
