If You’re an “In No Rush” Kind of Bride

What’s the first question everyone asks you when you announce your engagement?

“So… when’s the wedding?”
Well, you have no idea. The thought of planning a wedding so soon surprises, and quite frankly scares you. You’ve just gotten engaged. Your groom-to-be (or wife-to-be) just forked out thousands of dollars for that beautiful, shiny diamond on your left hand, and no one is ever really ready to slap down tens of thousands more for the ceremony. At least not right away. You should be able to enjoy your time with your new diamond friend. You want to stay happy and uplifted about the monumental stage you and your hubby are going through. You shouldn’t need to have your excitement bogged down with questions of “when” and “where.”

Take the time to enjoy your engagement with the love of your life. Celebrate; do an engagement photoshoot; throw a party; showcase your love. Wedding planning can be stressful and you don’t need to be in any kind of rush.

Your wedding is supposed to be the most important day of your life, and you should cherish that. Take the time that’s needed to put every fine detail you’ve ever wanted together into your big day. A wedding can’t be thrown together overnight. And there’s no time-limit on an engagement. Remember, you have time to plan the perfect day.

You’ve been given a promise of a lifetime, so why rush to the altar?
You can’t forget that you’re planning not only a wedding, but a marriage. Hopefully, you’ll only ever do this once, so you want to do it right. You don’t want to look back ten years from now and say, “I wish we could have…” There’s nothing worse than after-thoughts.

Take your time, enjoy your engagement and make good use of the endless time you have together. A lifetime of happiness awaits you.
