Getting Married is a Big Deal. Do it Right.
Are you ready for fancy dresses, impromptu family reunions, teary toasts, and inebriated aunts doing embarrassing things on the dance floor? Yes, it’s wedding season, y’all. While most of the time on the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast we talk about how to have a great relationship, today, in honor of wedding season, we’re talking about the art and craft of weddings themselves.
Why? For the last few months, we’ve had droves of premarital couples at Growing Self preparing themselves to have fantastic marriages, through premarital counseling, or our “I Do!” premarital counseling program, or our Denver premarital counseling class, “A Lifetime of Love.” It’s inspiring to see so many smart couples who are heading off potential problems through premarital counseling, so I decided to make you all a little wedding present.
If you’re not getting married yourself this year, it’s highly likely that you’ll be a guest at a wedding. And that comes with its own set of challenges. Anytime far-flung extended family and friends come together for an alcohol infused weekend, drama can ensue. How do you support your loved one who is getting married while setting healthy boundaries, and still have a good time in the process?
Whether you are gearing up for a large scale traditional wedding, or an intimate gathering to formalize your partnership, weddings are a big deal. A marriage is an incredibly meaningful and important day, and it can be uniquely stressful to plan and prepare for. On this episode of the podcast, I’ve invited Laura Pearson, founder of L Elizabeth Events, to share some of the things she’s learned from her ten years of experience as a Denver wedding planner. Some of the questions I’ve asked her on your behalf:
- What are some of the biggest mistakes engaged couples make?
- What’s the secret to enjoying your wedding, instead of being a stress-case?
- How do you handle intrusive parents?
- What can you do to make your wedding more enjoyable and meaningful for your guests?
- As a guest, what do you need to do to support your friend or family member on their big day?
