The Reality Of Wedding Planning

The Reality Of Wedding Planning
Chris Bracewell

So, it turns out planning a wedding is a solo job.

BE INSPIRED BY REAL-LIFE WEDDINGS

My fiancé and I started together...and then I realised his enthusiasm for all things wedding-related didn't quite match mine.He'd rather play COD, or go to the gym, or extract his own teeth while being forced to watch One Tree Hill than discuss potential themes.

This made me mad ("doesn't this mean ANYTHING to you?!") and sad (tearfully, "I just want it to be perfect") before I accepted men need tasks to attack and complete.

BE INSPIRED BY OUR PINTEREST BOARDS

Simon is not going to independently while away hours, dreamily researching flowers before presenting me with a blooms moodboard. He's not going to have strong opinions on colour schemes, invitations or favours. But, he does want us to have an incredible honeymoon, so deciding on a place and booking our post-wedding trip to remember forever and ever is now his job. Ha!

I refuse to plan the biggest day of our lives by myself. You can't force enthusiasm, ladies, but you can delegate. So, if any of this sounds familiar, start dividing up the work and the whole wedding will start to feel more like a joint effort.

  • I totally agree with this. It's three weeks to our wedding and I've only just managed to come to this conclusion. Write a list of tasks, hand it to him and watch what happens. A lot of men thrive on being task-driven. It will save you a lot of heart ache if you realise this as soon as you get engaged :)
