Wedding planning is indeed super exciting! But that’s what I call EXPECTATIONS VS THE REALITY…well, been there and done that multiple times….from my own wedding to my clients.
It can really burn you out and make your brains empty including your pockets. There’ll be days that you just want to run away from everyone or put everything away and it really sucks. However, don’t stress yourself or your partner too much.
Take breaks in between wedding planning especially if you are doing everything on your own. Grab some popcorn, hotdogs or pizza on your cheat days and watch some feel good movies with your fiancé. You may get bits of what it’s like to be in a marriage while watching and some inspirations worth keeping.
