It’s true, navigating the season of engagement before marriage is tough and you don’t realize how tough it is until you’re in the thick of it! This is ME saying this – you know, the positive, bubbly, joyful one. I tend to see the glass half full just because that’s who I am. But this season before marriage? Woah, even I agree that’s a whopper.
Many of you have gotten engaged in the past month, because this is overwhelmingly the most popular time get get engaged!! Families are all together for the holidays and it’s the perfect time to celebrate making a promise to each other that you’re committed to get married one day in the near future. It’s exciting!!! It’s the day you’ve been talking about with your girlfriends for so long. It’s the day your parents have been praying for and it’s finally here. IT’S FINALLY HERE!
But one thing about it is the expectations. You have expectations. Your fiance has expectations. Your family has expectations. They might all be different expectations! Feelings might get hurt. Planning a wedding, which mostly is fun, can sometimes be hard. Then there’s this other thing that tends to get put on the back burner – your relationship with your fiance. Together the expectations and making quality time with your fiance can make this engagement season feel like you’re on a boat by yourself in the middle of a storm. FRIENDS, you aren’t alone. I want you to know that it’s okay to take a step back and not talk about the wedding for an evening. It’s totally healthy to only talk about wedding stuff on Tuesdays and Thursdays, because the truth is the wedding is just a wedding. YOUR MARRIAGE is what really matters. The wedding is the symbol of the beginning of it all. You’ve got a lifelong journey ahead of you that you have to cultivate and that’s what really matters.
Happy planning friends! You’ve got this!!!! Your marriage will be here before you know it :) Also, you might note that our 2018 season is filling up so quickly, not even kidding you, So set your free consultation time today!
