The last thing you want to happen when planning your wedding is to disagree with your spouse-to-be! We hate to break it to you, but it’s bound to happen eventually. With so many decisions in creating your dream wedding, finding compromise is key.
Make separate lists!
Our biggest tip to start off planning right is to get on the same page from the beginning. Sit down with your partner and jot down some ideas on a notepad to really solidify what you agree on and what you may need to compromise on down the line. Agreeing on the big things like budget, venue, entertainment, and food first will save you time. Then, discuss details like themes, colors, and décor. Try to summarize what you are each picturing for the big day. As sweet as it is to say, “It doesn’t matter as long as I’m with you!” we all have a set vision for our wedding day. Ask each other questions. This is the time to lay it all out.
Still not agreeing? That’s ok!
A great wedding often combines a mix of aesthetics. When you have big items that you can’t seem to settle on, as your planner for advice! In so many scenarios, consulting your wedding planner when you have clashing options can will provide that final, neutral decision. Often, when you have a detail to compromise, we can point you in a direction that incorporates both visions to truly bring you both together.
As obstacles get in your path, remember what brought you together. You are getting married to spend a life together. Planning your wedding is the first test in learning how to speak with our partner about two big things: money and dislikes. You can learn a lot about your partner during this process, enjoy it! These decisions should be enjoyable as you build your celebration together. Your personalities should shine and what makes you a perfect couple should be the main focus of your wedding day.
