Marriage is a beautiful union of two individuals coming together to find their ‘happily ever after’ story. But, this union has some best kept secrets that only those who have gone through the process are privy to! Yes, this is true. There are certain things about weddings that married couples have been through, yet choose not to share with their soon-to-be married friends and relatives. So, all those getting married, we have decided to break this cycle of secrecy for you. Here is a list of top things that no one would tell you about weddings.
1. Less invites doesn’t mean lesser cost
If you believe that by keeping your guest list short you can save on your wedding budget, think again! Things do not work out that way all the time. Keeping related costs in perspective can offer better results. After all, the expenses related to hiring an expensive photographer or a live band can override your wedding budget. Well, guests are not the sole reasons that make a wedding budget shoot up. So, plan your wedding budget carefully and with complete perspective before you begin striking out names from the guests list.
2. Things will go wrong
Every girl dreams of a fairy tale wedding! They want a perfect wedding where everything is set in accordance to a pre-orchestrated plan. Sadly, things in real life do not work that way. Your unique ice sculpture may melt down before the ceremony, your revolving stage may not revolve at the precise moment, and rains may decide to play a prank on your wedding day. When it comes to a wedding plan, it is best to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. So, keeping a realistic expectation is important.
3. People would notice you
f you feel that in the enjoyment and festive atmosphere of weddings, people will be too busy to notice small or imperceptible errors, you are completely wrong! The invitees not only keep an eagle’s eye on the proceedings, but also discuss the mistakes for the times to come. For this reason people nowadays prefer to employ a wedding planner, so that it becomes their responsibility to organise everything perfectly. However, keep in mind that no matter what ‘hits’ or ‘misses’ your guests observe, this will remain your special day forever.
4. No one would give you straight answers
Do you think this colour will go with our theme?” “Are you sure this dress is looking good on me?” “Should we hire a live band or a dJ?”
Every bride-to-be wants the honest opinion whenever she asks such questions. Well in reality, put such questions up to your friends, wedding vendors or even your would-be and you would never get a straight answer. ‘Yes’ or ‘no’ replies are hard to find when you seek people’s help to finalise your wedding details. Best reply you can get is “if you feel so…”!
5. After your D-day ends with success, you start preparing yourself for a happily ever after! Annoyingly what the storybooks forgot to mention was the post-wedding day scenario. There will be a queue of guest waiting to meet you, awkwardness of being in a new home, and not to mention the frenzy of packing for the honeymoon (if you are supposed to leave immediately). Sadly, no one prepares for these that can worsen your celebration hangover!
The best way to overcome all your wedding tensions is to maintain an enchanting smile and vision your new life ahead with your beloved!
