Finding the Joy in Wedding Planning – No Stress Tips for Planning Your Wedding

November 3, 2014

Having photographed hundreds of weddings over two decades, I’ve come into contact with a lot of brides! Most are overcome with stress and anxiety – driving themselves and those around them crazy!

Getting married is one of the major life events and should be one of the most joyful days in a person’s life. The planning process can be a joy as well!

The idea of posting tips for planning a wedding has been brewing inside my brain for a long time and now’s the time for me to share what I’ve learned with today’s brides.

Today’s tip seems like a no brainer – Find the right person to marry!

Believe it or not, we have seen several marriages that never got off the ground. Alcoholism and infidelity are the two main reasons that we have seen marriages break up in the very early stages. The most beautiful location, flowers and photos won’t ever make up for major issues like these.

The most heart wrenching break up we’ve seen happened the same night as the wedding! The band playing at the reception were old friends of the bride. Apparently there were some unresolved feelings between the bride and one of the musicians. She ended up spending the night with the musician instead of with her husband. Needless to say, the groom was crushed! The marriage ended only hours after it started!

Your choice of life partner is the most important decision you will make in your life!

The rest of wedding planning is a breeze by comparison.
