It’s your wedding day, we know. Far be it from us to tell you that it shouldn’t be perfect.
For all we know, you might have spent a lifetime considering the perfect wedding venues, the perfect ceremony, and the perfect wedding vows to say to your husband-to-be. And you might have built up hopes and dreams around other aspects of your wedding which, in your mind, would ensure the big day bordered on perfection.
And hey, we hope your wedding day is perfect. But if it isn’t? That’s okay, and here a few of the reasons why.
#1: Things can go wrong
The best man might fumble with the wedding ring. The wedding cake could topple and end up on the floor. The sun might decide to hide behind the clouds. And there are all kinds of other things that could go wrong on the big day. Your ideas of perfection might then start to disappear.
However, if you go into your wedding day knowing that perfection is hard to attain, you will be less likely to go into meltdown mode when something inevitably does go wrong.
So, here’s the thing. While it is possible to avoid some wedding day disasters, don’t stress if something does calamitous happens. Instead, shrug your shoulders, carry on enjoying your day regardless, and with a positive mindset, don’t let any mishap threaten to upend your happiness.
#2: Perfection can be expensive
It depends on what you consider perfection to be, we suppose. You might not consider material things at all. But if you are somebody who just has to have the perfect wedding dress, the perfect wedding ring, and the perfect decor for your big day, then you might find yourself going way over budget if perfection equates to expensive tastes.
So, here’s the thing. If you are a on a tight budget, don’t start your marriage the wrong way by placing yourself at risk of debt. And don’t force your poor parents into debt either, if they are footing the bill. You can have a successful wedding on a budget, even if you have to compromise on a few of those things that could be considered perfect. And hey, you might still have the finances for one of your perfect things, so pick out what is most meaningful to you, and let that govern the rest of your spending.
#3: Love is all that matters
Don’t place your attention on material things. Don’t pin your hopes on everything going to plan. The only thing that matters on your wedding day is love. We are talking about the love your family and friends have for you. The love that you have your partner. And the love that he has for you. So, even if your day doesn’t turn out exactly as planned, don’t despair.
Let love rule your heart by focussing on the people important to you, instead of any element of your wedding that might fall a little short. And let other people shower you with their love. You see, without love, your wedding day wouldn’t be perfect anyway, so let this be the overriding factor ruling your big day!
Take care, and thanks for reading!
