Once upon a time, in a land not too far away – You meet the love of your life, and you decide: “Let’s get married!”.
You share your exciting news with friends and family, and everyone is all like... how did it happen? let’s see the ring! when’s the big day?
Then the tough questions start: Will you be getting married at church? Are you getting married on the family farm? You’re inviting kids aren’t you? How many bridesmaids are you having? Can I bring my friend? You’re not going to spend a fortune on the day are you? Are you really going to do a cheap wedding?
...suddenly eloping sounds kinda nice!
It’s not just logistical details that cause wedding planning stress – it’s the parents who say they’ll help financially but won’t say how much, the over-promisers-and-under-doers, the wedding vendors who don’t email back… oh and those guests who drag their feet with their RSVP (there’s a special place in hell for those ones, huh).
One of the things you quickly learn about planning a wedding is that it’s impossible to do it alone.
You have to rely on other people for wedding planning help – whether that’s a caterer preparing meals for guests, a friend making a cake, or a good old-fashioned “how the heck do I deal with this”! Lucky the Southern Bride team has your back.
