He proposed. She accepted. Now it's time to plan for the big
day. Where does one start? He wants a big wedding. She wants a
quaint one with family and close friends. Before deciding here
are important facts to consider.
1. The date that you and your fiancé decide on is your day.
You and only you and your fiancé should discuss and decide what
you want. Allow suggestions with the understanding of who will
be making the final decision.
2. Weddings are a very,
very profitable business. Advertisements have convinced us that
weddings must be an elaborate social event, and if you cannot
afford or refuse to have an elaborate gala you will be
disappointed and so will your guests.
family and true friends are happy for you and only want to share
the moment with you. If your wedding day is enshrouded with
elaborate festivities the true meaning of why two people are
coming together will be lost. Remember Princess Diana's wedding?
(My point exactly.)
3. Keep it simple. So you know a lot
of people. But do you know that all of these people consider you
an intimate acquaintance. If you have not heard from or seen
them in years why invite them to your special day? Some of the
loveliest wedding receptions that I have attended are the
champagne and cake events. Have a party later when you both are
more established financially, perhaps on your anniversary.
4. Enjoy the Moments. And you will, if you keep everything
simple and plan within your means.
