All In the Mind
David J Holmsen, author of the Complete Wedding Handbook
you decided to run a marathon, one would hope you train and prepare
yourself first. The trouble with many weddings is that couples
don't prepare themselves beforehand for the long run ahead. It's
mostly the case they prefer to find out the rules as they go along.
While you could make a case for it, I don't buy into it. The result
of doing it that way is you end up finding all the potholes and
the inevitable disappointments along the way.
Even if you don't expect to win the marathon, you still want to
be prepared enough to enjoy it, otherwise what's the point? It's
my belief if you want to organise your own wedding, get in the
right frame of mind by knowing where you want to go and what tactics
you are going to use to get there. Sadly, wedding planners and
books spend too little time (if any) on this side of wedding organisation.
You can dramatically make a very real, positive difference to
your wedding experience by following these simple 'Five Golden
Rules of Wedding Organisation.' They are:
you have established these aspects, you are well prepared to make
the right decisions to help build the wedding you really want.
