It is a new year. Time is not slowing down – especially if this is the year you’re getting married.
So how do you plan a wedding, maintain the daily grind and avoid going crazy?
It is as simple as … well, let’s start with a story.
Imagine you were told that there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
What is the first thing you do?
You picture what the pot of gold looks like. The power of vision is strong.
You may picture a black cast iron kettle heaping full of brand new gold coins glistening in the morning sun. Angels are singing as a huge machine picks it up (because no one daydreams of the beeping sound of heavy machinery) as it magically arrives at your front door.
Now that you can picture it, you have to take action to get there.
Normally, that is where the daydreaming ends. Stories never take the time to explain the difficulties in the journey. Fairytales always skip that.
You lace up your shoes to take 100,000 steps to get over the steep, slippery, blinding rainbow that was so stunning in the distance.
Planning your wedding is no different.
You can see your big day as clear as that pot of gold. You lace up your shoes and you start taking each step to get there. Sometimes, the costs are steep. The tension with wedding planning can be slippery.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to cross the rainbow in front of you. As in anything worth value, you have to put in the time and effort.
If you do not try on the 32 wrong dresses, you won’t know that this is the dress.
If you do not meet with a few options for photographers and DJs, you won’t feel the connected with the right ones.
So back to ‘how do you plan a wedding, maintain the daily grind and avoid going crazy?’
Take a deep breath.
Close your eyes and mentally picture the most important details of your wedding day.
Let go of the rest.
Now lace up your shoes, trust your gut and remember that each and every step you take has to take place for you to get there.
