This is not really how to plan a wedding but maybe more of what to expect while planning a wedding – be prepared for the fact that things may not go as planned (or in the way you imagined your wedding to be). Planning a wedding is frankly quite an ordeal even for one as simple as ours.
For us, we couldn’t get our intended photographer despite our willingness (then) to shell out substantial costs for that, our caterer cancelled on us right before we were supposed to go for food tasting, we were told just 4 days before our wedding that our chosen wedding wines were not going to reach on time, additional invites have been extended without our knowledge and RSVPs that came in a day before the wedding even though we sent out our invites some 4 months before that. Of course all I wanted to do is go “WHY GOD WHYYYY” but it was so good that we could both remind each other that these things didn’t matter and at the end of the day, it would be the start of the life we would be building together. We managed to find a photographer who shoots with film, get additional items for the wedding menu with a new caterer, enjoy a complimentary wine tasting with our friends to choose a new wine and the guestlist worked out fine.
A couple of days before the wedding, we were packing confetti and Travelpac said we need to label them so that people know when to toss the confetti. I told him everybody knows when to toss the confetti and the confetti remained un-labelled. Of course, on the day of our wedding, some confetti was erroneously tossed as I was walking down the aisle. I took one look at my husband-to-be who gave me a “I told you so” face and laughed my way down the aisle. Things may not always go as planned but they always work out just perfect.
