It can be easy to lose touch with your fiancé because of the stress of planning a wedding. It is important to try and stay connected and not lose sight of your ultimate goals. Using these tips will help keep you from facing too much conflict during the planning stages:
Focused and Realistic Plan
Make sure you are on the same page from the very beginning. Sit down together and list everything that you envision being part of your ideal wedding. Then meet with your respective families and see what there expectations might be, especially regarding family traditions and the troublesome guest list. You can then agree on what you both want and begin crossing off things that are not realistic due to budget and other factors. Use this list whenever things get out of hand to help you stay focused on remaining committed to your agreement. There will be times when either of you may get caught up in the moment which can lead to stress. Many couples have a sign or a word they share to bring you back down to earth and help you avoid arguments; silly, but effective.
Most family challenges can be avoided if you both are considerate of each other’s family members. Make sure you involve your parents by keeping them updated on important decisions such as the guest list, the wedding colors (to help choose a dress) and major decisions such as planning a St. Maarten wedding when they are expecting it to take place at their place of worship. This will help manage expectations and keep you and your fiancé from getting into arguments about family conflicts. Both families will have expectations that their values and beliefs will be reflected in the wedding ceremony. The main objective is that you as a couple follow your hearts and have a ceremony that will be meaningful to you. You can then look for ways to develop a blended ceremony that will be perfect especially if you are planning a St. Maarten wedding or another destination wedding where both families’ places of worship will be miles away.
These are some simple tips but it will help you stay in tune and stop issues from mounting. Your wedding planning should be more fun than stressful so enjoy the moment and use it as a way to get to know your in-laws and bond with your fiancé.
