A Friendly Reminder to the Stressed Out Bride or Groom

You’re engaged! When is the wed­ding? What does your dress look like? Who is your pho­tog­ra­pher? Where are you going on your hon­ey­moon? The ques­tions never end! While some peo­ple love hav­ing the spot­light on them and rel­ish every sin­gle minute of the plan­ning process, we know that not every bride or groom enjoys it. And you know what? That’s okay.

As one of our brides once told us, this process is only as hard as you want it to be. You will spend hours search­ing for the per­fect dress, writ­ing witty vows, craft­ing cen­ter­pieces, and pick­ing out a playlist. Some­times this all just seems too over­whelm­ing and you need to take a step back. Remem­ber the rea­son you are get­ting mar­ried. You are com­mit­ting your­self to your part­ner in front of your clos­est friends and fam­ily and at the end of the day, that’s all you really HAVE to do. It is easy to be swept up in Pin­ter­est boards and bridal mag­a­zines but remem­ber that in the end, this is your day. It will never be exactly like any­one else’s and that makes every sin­gle wed­ding spe­cial and orig­i­nal. If it all seems like too much and you don’t know where to start, check out your con­tract!

Lesner Inn pro­vides a plan­ning guide for cou­ples to have a check­list to work with. Your lesner-inn- wedding-virginia-beach-waterfront-sunset-best-wedding-venue-hampton-roadsevent man­ager will also help you with a floor plan and pick­ing out the lay­out of where tables need to go. Don’t be afraid to email one of the girls in our office to ask a ques­tion – that is what we are here for! We will meet with you about 3 months away from your wed­ding day to touch base and make sure things are on track. We will help you to fill out the plan­ning guide and get those pesky floor plans worked out. Then we will sit down with you two weeks before the wed­ding to final­ize these details. While it can seem over­whelm­ing when you are sit­ting up late at night furi­ously pin­ning images to a Pin­ter­est board, remem­ber that you are going to love your wed­ding day because you are mar­ry­ing the love of your life.

Don’t be afraid to take a step back from the plan­ning process and have a date night with your fiancé. Enjoy being engaged. Go to happy hour with your friends and catch up on their lives. Log some time at the gym to blow off some steam. Catch up on your DVR and don’t feel guilty. Just because you are plan­ning a wed­ding doesn’t mean that you need to drop every­thing else in your life.

So…to bride or groom who feels like they’re tread­ing water and can barely keep their head up, just breathe.
