What is it about weddings that puts a pep to our steps, helps us smile more than normal, and jus tmakes us want to hug the world! I love weddings! If you are in the business of serving brides, groom, their families and friends, then you absolutely have to love weddings! There is not other way you can survive or would ever want to put all the hard work into creating things that dreams are make of! So it’s only natural that as lovers of weddings and brides, grooms and their families and friends, I want to share with you a few ideas of how to enjoy the wedding planning process! Here are my tips to enjoy wedding planning:
You deserve to be happy during this process!
Tip # 1: Hire a photographer you are in love with who will take your engagement photos for FREE simply to get to know you!!! You don’t want vendor coming along on this journey with you who simply want to treat your once-in-a-life-time celebration as a transaction. Hire someone who will work for YOU and not for themselves.
Tip # 2: As soon as you hire your photographer, schedule your engagement session and get a TON of gorgeous photos! When you receive them, download them onto your phone. Share the HECK out of them on social media. Print and frame the photographs and display them all over the house. Give frammed photographs of your engagement session to family and friends. Trust me when I tell you your grandmother wants to see that smile on your face in your photos! SHARE it with the world! JUST this simple act makes it very enjoyable to go through the wedding planning which can be stressful.
Tip # 3: Get pampered! I mean PAMPERED!!! Get your nails done. A regular massage will do wonders for your body. An amazing treatment for your scalp, hair and skin to simply have the best hair and skin on your wedding day. Workout and rid your body of toxins. Join the gym only if you go to their sauna room. Relax. THIS. IS. YOUR. TIME. (Sorry not sorry for the caps!) Ask close family and friends to gift you these treatments instead of something from Bed Bath and beyond.
Okay. These aren’t so hard, are they? Are you able to do at least one of the above in order to have an excellent wedding planning season? A happy wedding planning bride is a happy bride on her wedding day. She enjoys everything and everyone around. The bride isn’t stressed. She is elated and joyful and is on cloud nine because she’s taken care of herself the months leading up to the big day!
So, my dear sweet bride, take care of yourself! I cannot wait to photograph YOU, the HAPPY and BEAUTIFUL YOU, on your wedding day!
