Wedding planning is tricky, it's hard, it's fun, it's emotional it just has its pros and cons but at the end of it all it brings joy and happiness right? That was on a lighter note. I often ask myself why do men shun from wedding planning? Is it fear that grips them? The fear of being pinned down to one person for good? Or is it the fear of failing not knowing what to do. Here is the thing, wedding planning should be the most enjoyable time for a couple, why, this is the time you use to get to know your likes and dislikes, its the time to know your weaknesses and strengths, you also get to spend quality time with your loved one. If you don't fully connect at this point then i don't know what will. That's the positive side of it. The negative side is now the challenges that you have to go through when planning a wedding. When your planning your wedding please, this is free advice for those who are not married, be strong and firm with your decisions otherwise you will end up stressed and frustrated. Remember this is your day make things run the way you want not the way parents or relatives want. You will find the parents probably want a big wedding when all you want is a small personal and passionate wedding. Another thing is transport who should ride with whom and with what, wedding planners the bride may want who does the best decor, and the groom is looking at his pockets, maybe people want an after party when all your thinking of is lets go home finally and rest. The list goes on and on, but the one thing that needs to be realized is you cannot please everyone so sit and agree and let the decisions you make together stick.
