Wedding Planning should be FUN! Plain and simple. Yes, planning such an important and special occasion comes with the normal headaches and stress risers however and overall, planning your wedding should have fun involved!
So let's talk about how to have FUN while planning your wedding!
Fun Means: Action or speech that provides amusement or arouses laughter. Fun usually implies laughter or gaiety but may imply merely a lack of serious or ulterior purpose. (Found via: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fun).
3 Steps to Wedding Planning Fun:
Step 1: Be honest about your wedding budget and accept it! (Honesty and accepting the budget you can spend is step one because from this point on you know what you can and cannot afford. Being in denial and planning the wedding of your dreams do not go hand in hand. Once you accept your budget you will give yourself a peace of mind and really get to enjoy the fun of planning the wedding of your dreams. Do not by all means compare your wedding to another couples. You two are you, you make a great couple because of who the two of you are. Television is great..I love watching the wedding shows, but your wedding is special and unique because you found your soul mate and get to enjoy happily ever after. When making purchases stick to your budget and I guarantee it will make the process a lot more fun! If you need help figuring out your budget..Hire a Planner (even if just for a 3 or 4 hour consultation to get you on the right track!))
Step 2: Select people to be in your Bridal Party that you actually "LIKE"! ("Like" is the key word here. You can love someone because they are family, but if you don't like them..they will drive you insane!!!! Select people that you can stand to be around..that make you smile..that make you laugh. Select people that know your personality, know how to calm you down, know how to not make you upset. Whether you have a year of planning, 6 months of planning, more or less...you will spend time with the people in your Bridal Party..even if just on wedding day (which is 10+ hours). So if you want to have fun..choose wisely!)
Step 3: Laugh and make it an adventure! (Laughing is crucial when planning a wedding. Wedding Planning IS stressful, I don't care what anyone tells you. However, Wedding Planning does not have to be a stress factor in your life. You are getting married and this is something to celebrate not cry about. Smile and laugh and joke and have fun. When things go wrong..breathe and just laugh. I am so serious..it will make you feel crazy but it will make you feel better and this will make Wedding Day much easier because you have learned to handle the stress of wedding planning by not allowing it to over take you. Then, on Wedding Day if something goes wrong..you will look at it differently and your reaction will be much better! Don't believe me, email me and I will let you speak to one of my brides! Don't sweat the small stuff..remember why you are getting married and enjoy the process!!)
Follow these 3 steps and you will have a lot more fun planning your dream wedding! If planning your wedding has not been fun, then sit down and rethink what is happening. If you're not having fun, then you need to do something different because it should be fun!
Laugh, Smile and Have FUN!!! :-D
