Determine your priorities - Discover what really matters to you and your fiancée
Unlike your bride, you probably haven’t been dreaming of your wedding since you were
eight years old, but that doesn’t mean you
don’t have dreams and expectations.
Discovering what they are will make your
wedding more meaningful for both of you.
To create a wedding the two of you will love,
start with rule #1...
Determine your priorities.
Great partners care about each other's dreams and know how to lend support to help them come
true. Before you run out and tell your family and friends your big news, sit down with your fianceé and
make a list based on your deepest desires.
List ten things that you each really want from your wedding and the five things that are most important to you about your honeymoon.
Number them in order of priority.
Talk about why you chose those things and make a pact that you will work together to see that most, if not all of your hopes will be met as you make your wedding planning decisions. This mutual understanding and trust will help you arrive at decisions you’ll both be happy with and makes it easy to respond to all the well meaning advice you’re bound to encounter on your way.
If you start worrying over little things, check in with your priority list to get back to what really matters.
