Welcome to the first post on my blog, the beginning, and the beginning of your journey as a Bride and Groom,
and Congratulations on your engagement !
You now have the exciting task of planning your wedding day, one of the most important and the most special day of your life, that you want to be perfect.
Many couples find out very quickly that this can be a daunting task. There are likely to be lots of people who want to offer their input to your planning, whether you want it or not.
Remember that it is your day and so you should have what you want. Of course this is not always possible, depending on who is paying for the day. If there are others who are contributing to the cost of the wedding day then they surely must have some say in the arrangements. Even so, be firm if you are not in agreement with their thoughts and try and discuss the matter sensibly. You will find that you are very likely going to need to compromise throughout, with each other, with family and friends, with your budget, with your venue facilities, and other matters to numerous to mention. The main thing to remember is to enjoy the planning of your wedding day. It is exciting and its fun, and while every item is important, you will be extremely lucky if everything should go exactly to plan, so accept this, and accept that you will be faced with challenges, the majority of which will be overcome easily, so don't get stressed (easier said than done).
