Your Platinum Wedding - Your Way!
For many couples, planning a wedding is like stepping into a scene from Lord of the Rings. It is a journey, arduous at times, smooth at others, that begins with a ring and (hopefully!) ends in a joyous celebration where you are the honored guest.
Remember that there will be challenges along with the triumphs. As you embark on your journey, you must be careful to avoid one of the main pitfalls along the way--indecisiveness. As you go through the gauntlet of budgets, families, dresses, seating arrangements, etc. you will be tested. The one thing that will get you through, your shield, your armor, your tour de force is not only your ability to make decisions, but to stick to them, execute them, and move on.
There are so many resources out there when it comes to wedding planning. So many options that when you begin to create your wedding vision you think you know what you want, but then you begin to remember what your friend had at her wedding, or what you saw during a episode of Platinum Weddings, and everything begins to get jumbled. Your head starts spinning and you are left with a bunch of awesome ideas, but no concrete plan. We have all been distracted by bright shiny objects at one point or another, but get all your "oohs" and "ahs" over with, and get back on track. Stay focused.
When you plan your wedding, get clear on your vision for the day. List your priorities, and do your research on what is available. When it is time, make your decision with confidence, write the check, and move on to the next item on the list. Be happy with your choice and don't waste spend time second-guessing.
Keep in mind everyone will have an opinion on the decisions you are making, but the one opinion that matters the most is that of your fiance. After all, you two are in this together!
