Congratulations! Here at TorontoBrides.com, we know and understand how much work you’ll have to do as you organize for and busily plan your wedding day. Regardless of culture, religion, or the size of the wedding, there will be a lot of little details that need to be covered as you prepare for this one day. In this section, we’ve compiled suggestions that may help you mentally prepare yourself for this task at hand.
Yes, it will be a happy and fun time and it will be full of romance. There will be times though, where you will feel frustrated, angry, crazy, anxious, and probably every other adjective that you can imagine. Realize that all these feelings, both positive and negative, are a natural part of the planning process.
Regardless of what event you plan, there will always be some sort of stress caused by juggling all those decisions. Should organizing your wedding be any different? Not really!
As you are planning your wedding, you’ll meet lots of people, family, and friends who will be overjoyed by your announcement. At times though, you may notice that some are less perky than you’d expect them to be, maybe even downright negative and condescending.
While you may love/like/dislike/be indifferent to your family and your future-in-laws, you can expect that at some point during your busy wedding planning, you will have to deal with their comments, their suggestions, their opinions, and their ideas. All of which, of course, may be completely opposite to what you want. Our families seem to have this uncanny ability to make suggestions sound just like direct commands, which may make such requests difficult to digest.
When you least expect it, that’s when it happens. You’re in the big white gown and “oops” you know what decides it’s that time of the month and it isn’t going to take a rain check for any reason. If you mentally prepare that there will be surprises along the way, you won’t be caught off guard, or at least, not as much as you would have been if you had just assumed everything would go super smooth. People may get delayed in traffic, the cake may melt, or maybe one of the toilets at the hall goes out of order. And yes, it is likely that someone will need a safety pin.
Yes, you. Life in the busy hubbub of Toronto is so fast paced. We’re so busy we forget to take care of ourselves and place ourselves at the top of the priority list. We stay late at work to meet deadlines, eat fast food or microwaveables because we’re too tired to cook a healthy meal. We drink a ton of coffee and let’s not even talk about junk food that we eat on the run. We stay up late because our minds have already started to race about what we have to do the next day. And then you add on the planning of a wedding? Could it get any crazier?
