Wedding planning should be exciting, and something you look forward to if you are marrying the right person. You will not agree on everything and there will be arguments, but there should always be a way to compromise. Wedding planning can sometimes seem like all of your guests’ wants, and expectations should be exceeded but this is too much pressure. Truly, your wedding day is about you and your partner and is a celebration of your commitment to one another.
They are just as excited as you to get married. They don’t think about wedding planning as a chore. Sometimes it can be rough but they always remind you it will be worth it.
There is always trust and honesty. If you’re marrying the love of your life, you should never doubt their actions, at least feel comfortable enough to discuss them. It is usually problematic if you or your partner conceal the details of a night out apart or the contents on your cell phone.
They understand your values. It’s important that they understand what matters to you and vice versa. Whether it is a large scale on the ways you want to be respected, or smaller like having your grandmother’s favourite flower in your bouquet, they always respect what’s important to you.
You both understand your budget. Weddings are a very important event and your vision should not be compromised. However, it is important for you and your partner to establish a budget and respect it. If something goes over your budget, this must be properly discussed. More on that, considering a budget, your partner knows how important having a horse and buggy is to you and does not put their foot down. If they know what’s important to you, the 2 of you can sit down and discuss the parts of the overall vision that might not be negotiable for sentimental reasons. You can downgrade or save elsewhere.
They know how to handle your crazy family. Families are rarely perfect, and your partner might not fit in perfectly. However, it is so important they know how to handle and respect the people you are closest with. If not, they will eventually have resentment in the future.
You’re dreaming more about your future together than your wedding day. The wedding day is merely to confirm your commitment, the best part of the wedding is what lies ahead!
