Planning your wedding day, which is the biggest celebration of your relationship, can be an incredibly stressful and difficult time for that relationship. And during wedding planning, many of us are not our best selves. The reality of wedding planning is not all milk and honey, it can turn out to be very stressful, no matter how much we planned on staying calm and collected, and no matter how much we thought we were on the exact same page as our partner. Here are some of the ways to keep your hubby happy and your relationship strong while you are planning the biggest day of your life.
Know That You Won’t Be Different from Other Couples
Even though we love to believe that we are different and special, that is almost never the fact. Assuming that you and your partner will never be “like other couples” is a big mistake from the start. Instead, you should accept that it will be tricky and face it right away, because it means you won’t be blindsided later.
Agree on finances upfront.
Finances are, without the doubt, the biggest reason why couples fight during the wedding planning process. You should always discuss your individual financial situations and establish a realistic budget. This way, you won’t rack any debt, and you will be stress free. You definitely don’t want your celebration of a lifetime to prevent you from reaching future goals, like buying a house.
Talk to him and include him in the process
Communication is key!! We are going to assume that you are the one planning the most of the wedding, since that is the case for a majority of couples. When you find yourself overwhelmed during the planning process, the best thing to do is talk to your fiancé. He can help calm you down and see things rationally. Having someone you can count on for better or for worse is the biggest wedding perk of them all. Also, bringing a problem to your partner will only help you solve it faster.
