Being a Bride-to-be and a wedding designer is not something I have imagined as I struggle to balance myself of being a professional planner and prepping to be a blushing bride at the same time (I’ll be getting married in Bali this November!). And putting my shoes in this new role for the first time, it gives me a whole new perspective of the emotional ups and downs of a bride, and hence also turning into a Bridezilla!
There are a few pointers I constantly remind myself, which I believe are paramount to maintaining a good attitude towards wedding planning:
-Respect. Yes, it might be all about you and the wedding, but at the end of the day, it’s a union of two families, and these are people whom you will be involved with for the rest of your life, so do get their confirmation and blessings for big items.
-Your Other Half. Most of the time guys just put on their tuxedo and hope nothing goes wrong. But apart from that, one should try to accommodate their feelings. After all, you do want a picture perfect day, with your groom blooming together with you.
-Put on a Big Smile. No matter how many times you rehearse or how meticulous the big day is planned out, it is never going to be 100% perfect and there are things in life that are just beyond our control. So, please don’t stress over the small details (because most of the time guests don’t even notice) and just fully embrace and enjoy this important day of you life.
