It Takes Two To Make A Wedding Go Right
This is a collaborative post – it takes two to make a wedding go right.
Cooperation makes everything a little easier. When it comes to the often-gargantuan responsibility of planning a wedding, doing it all alone can be next to impossible if you’re not a professional. However, often one half of the couple gets the lion’s share of the responsibility. Here, we’re going to look at how to ensure the cooperation that can keep the pre-wedding stress to a minimum.
Split the checklist
First, start by putting together a wedding planning checklist of just about everything you have to do together. Break down each task into bullet points of what you have to do before it’s complete. When you split them, split them fairly so you don’t just have the same number of tasks, but that you’re doing tasks that need about the same amount of time and effort put into them. Try to split tasks into those that each party is likely to be more interested in, too.
For instance, if someone is taking the role of the creative brains behind the operation, and the other is happy to cede that control to them, then one person can be in charge of going to wedding fairs and vendors and making the decisions, while the other can help with the logistics and ensuring that everything is running smoothly and will be ready for the big day.
Wear what you want
A little collaboration on the style of the wedding can help, but you should each have the opportunity to express yourself through your look. The bride and her party will naturally have complete control over choosing the dress, accessories, and shoes, but the groom often has a little more control exerted over them. Stop stressing and let them choose the perfect wedding suit for themselves. You can search together for vendors, but when it comes to creating his wedding outfit, it will be easier on both of you to let the groom handle it himself.
Know what you need to decide together
While checking in with each other from time to time, you should both be able to carry on with the wedding checklist with relative autonomy. However, there are some plans that need to be made together if you want to avoid some friction. Some wedding decisions to make together include the venue, the guest list, the entertainment, and the catering. The needs of both need to be met during these decisions, after all.
Don’t forget to delegate
Lastly, don’t forget that you have a wedding party. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen aren’t just there to party, they are there to help. From transporting the cake to making last-minute checks with vendors and venue, use the wedding party when you both need some breathing room.
Planning a wedding is stressful, no matter how many people are helping, of course. There’s a lot riding on getting it all right. However, when you work together, not only do you split the workload, but you also have someone who can support you and vice versa, letting you keep your head cool as you push through the planning process.
