Wedding Emotions #allovertheplace
Updated: Feb 13
Wedding planning can bring about an entire snack bar of feelings. The whole reason for the occasion is an uprooting of your life as you know it. On one side, you can't wait to spend all of the life you have left on this earth with the one person who knows how to get you to grin from ear to ear with one word. On the other side, you are use to doing things in a particular way. You aren't marrying someone who is exactly like you. Where is the fun in that! You are marrying the person who knows how to touch every emotion you have in the most beautiful and compassionate of ways.
These feelings that flip flop from left to right will keep you busy, but we suggest you embrace them as they come. Leaning into what you feel, instead of fighting it or even being blind to the fact that you are feeling it, can only cause a lengthy experience. The good feelings you may not mind staying with you, but the bad can take over if you let it. Recognize it, and feel it, all of it, as you go. Below we shared 4 that may be the most common and recurring of them all.
Anxiety is defined as intense, excessive, and persistent worry and fear about situations.
Now, please know it is natural to have a little anxiety when planning a wedding. Again, you are uprooting your life as you know it. So it is natural to worry about things. Worrying about whether everything will happen for your wedding the way you want it to, or even thinking about how things will be after wedding day is something every couple thinks about. It is completely natural. But there is no need to stress about it, especially if you are working through all you will need to do to have a beautiful day and a beautiful life afterwards. Recognize what is causing your anxiety, work out as best you can the thing that initiates the thought...even if it is more than one...and move on.
Excitement is a feeling of great enthusiasm and eagerness.
We are all eager for things, and it is a really good emotion to have. It just means you are excited about your future. Excitement keeps you looking forward to the day of your happily ever after. It gives you an enormous amount of hope for what is and what is to come. If you could bottle the excitement you have, and every itty bitty reason it comes along, while going through the wedding planning experience, you could sell it and guaranteed you'd be an instant million. Just do us this one favor. Be sure to remember your excitement during the moments, if and when, your experience becomes challenging.
Overwhelm is defined as the giving of too much of a thing to, or to inundate.
You are going to go through a lot of emotions leading up to and on the wedding day. THIS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL! The fact that you are about to embark on the rest of your life with your soon-to-be can be ....heck you name it! If you are feeling it, and a lot of it, don't worry. Just breathe. Take each moment one at a time, and know that you are in this together. You aren't anywhere brides and grooms before you haven't been. It's your day. Just hearing that can be a huge amount of pressure. But, listen...it is your day. Take some time to decompress together. Do some yoga. Take a walk. Have days where wedding planning is not on the list. Though overwhelm may still peek it's head around the corner, you will have taken steps to lessen the power of it.
Love is defined as a strong feeling of affection and concern toward another person.
This is the glue. This is what will get you to the altar, and that 50th wedding anniversary. Throughout the entire journey you will come to know as your wedding planning process, you will become acquainted with the many levels of love. Your decisions will be based, at times, on the love you feel for one another and the happiness you will desire and look forward to. During this process, allow this emotion to guide you and be your compass. Allow it to give you the patience and understanding, when times become a bit much, and when it engulfs you, rest in it.
Hopefully, our discussing these four emotions will give you some relief in identifying and managing the emotions you will experience in your wedding planning process. It is always our suggestion to hire a professional wedding planner to help you take on this emotional adventure. But if you happen to go at it alone, our hope is that you take your time, embrace your thoughts and feelings, and enjoy the day and the life you plan and spend together.
until next time,
be sweet & happy planning!
