Ah, weddings! The perfect blend of love, romance, and a whole lot of planning. There's nothing quite like seeing two people in love tie the knot, surrounded by their family and friends. But let's be real here, folks. Behind every perfect wedding is a whole lot of hard work and planning. So, before we get lost in the sea of confetti, let's take a moment to dive into the nitty-gritty of what it takes to achieve that picture-perfect wedding.
We did a little digging and now, we've come up with a list of phases you need to go through before you achieve that perfect wedding. So grab a glass of champagne, and let's get started, shall we?
Finding Mr./Mrs. Right
First things first, you need to meet the right person, because as they say: “You can't have a perfect wedding without the perfect person”. For some people, this is simple enough, but for others, not so much. We’ve heard of some people marrying themselves. PS – if that's what makes you happy, then you do you, boo. Put a ring on it. 👊🏾 For the rest of us, we need someone who can handle our weird obsessions, laugh at our jokes, deal with our crazy quirks, and of course, our morning breath. Hey, you are doing life with this person, so you’ve got to make sure he or she is the right one.
Once you've found that person, it's time for the dating phase. This is where you need to step up your game and show them what you've got. Impress them with your wit, charm, and sense of humor. Or, if all else fails, just buy them a lot of gifts. Works every time. Jokes! You've got to put in work. You don't want to get served breakfast now.
Meeting the in-laws
Ahem, now that you've got the dating phase covered, it's time to face the ultimate test, meeting the in-laws! This is like a job interview, except the stakes are higher, and you can't just fake a cough to get out of it. You need to make sure you make a good impression because they hold the key to your future spouse's heart. So, be on your best behavior, put on your most charming smile, and try not to embarrass yourself. Remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint, and you need to pace yourself because you're in it for the long haul.
Now, the moment you've been waiting for – the proposal. So, you're finally ready to pop the question and take the next step in your relationship. The proposal is your chance to show your significant other how much you love them and how much effort you're willing to put into making them happy. It's like planning a surprise party, but for the love of your life. Get ready to brainstorm some ideas, consult with friends, and maybe even hire a planner to make it extra special.
Time to say ‘I do’
Alright, it's time to plan the dream wedding. This is where the real work begins. Let's be real, weddings can cost a lot. You don't want to end up having to sell your birthright just to pay for it. So, it's important to tailor your wedding to your budget. Don't worry, though, you can still have a beautiful and perfect wedding no matter the size of your bank account. Just remember, it's all about proper planning – and if all else fails, just elope and spend the money on a killer honeymoon (We will deny this if it goes south).
So, there you have it! The key to a perfect wedding is 1). Finding the right person, 2). Impressing the in-laws, 3). Planning a romantic proposal and 3). Making sure the wedding is tailored to your budget. It's that simple!
