The 5 Bridal Blunders
Put the “to-do” on hold for a moment and check out this “blunder” list! Avoid these and stay calm & cool in the weeks leading up to your big day.
Blunder #1: Talking Endlessly About the Wedding
Your girlfriend simply asks “How are the wedding plans going?” and before she knows it, she’s on the slow end of a 20-minute list of all the current upsets in your planning. While the engagement period can be exciting, it can also be a scary time. But trust that things will work out fine. And the next time someone asks about your wedding plans, keep your answer to a sentence or two.
Blunder #2: Expecting Perfection
All the pictures, pinning and ideas can lead to a larger than life wedding (and bill!). Spending outside your budget so the sugar cubes match the flowers will have no merit after the big day. When you find yourself ignoring your budget, remember that the wedding is the launch to the rest of your life with your new husband. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder.
Blunder #3: Forgetting About Your Fiancé
“I can’t meet you for lunch, sweetie, I’m booked with all these wedding appointments.” Sound familiar? Neglectful behavior during your engagement can set a bad precedent for marriage. Take time off from big-day tasks to spend regular old girlfriend-boyfriend time together.
Blunder #4: Earning Diva Status
Me-Me-Me, Are you going overboard on the attention-grabbing front, with increasing demands from friends and bridesmaids-more bridal events and outings, more gifts, more reasons to spend money? While your intentions might be to keep your circle in-tact as you begin your transfer to “married” status, this behavior might backfire. Try to plan get-togethers that are all about fun and friendship and have nothing to do with your wedding.
Blunder #5: Blowing Your Wedding Budget
Many couples start out right in mapping out their budget, but as the extras-like $200 extra for the gown or a few hundred more for better champagne add up quickly! So make a budget, and stick to it-you don’t want to start your marriage under a cloud of debt.
