I know it’s been long since I posted something meaningful and about wedding tips, but I never imagined my own wedding was going to take over my life this much!! (considering it is a petite family wedding)
It is coming out great but between having to promote my work as a wedding photographer and having my hun work non stop, I’ve been carrying the weight of every single detail of the wedding myself. My family is coming to town between this weekend and next week, but really, we get married in 2 weeks, there’s not much left!
My advice in a time like this, ORGANIZATION, if you’re bad at it, get someone to help you build a schedule for everything you have to do for the wedding, apart from the stuff you do for work! I am really organized most of the time, but for this it was just so overwhelming I just let it take over me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not stressed because of the actual wedding, its everything around it that has me a little nervous.
I am counting on exiting new clients and work for next year, but still have a lot of work to do to get known around here! Have so much energy and desire to work and take the most beautiful wedding pictures, sometimes it’s a little frustrating not having the opportunity because people just don’t know our work! So I have to focus on that as well!
But, as I was saying, organization is the key here. I started a calendar with dates and times (a little bit late though) dividing duties from work and errands for the wedding. Try to follow this calendar as strictly as you can and you’ll see that by the last month before the wedding you’ll be done with pretty much everything and wont be running like crazy the last days!
Enjoying these last days with so much stuff has been hard, but always count on the people you love to give you extra support and of course in your hun! In my case if it wasn’t for him I would’ve broken a few times by now. So be grateful for this and remember, it might be a big day for you and your loved ones, but the most important part of it is the life that awaits you together, the love you will share with your husband/wife, so remember this through the process and don’t let this pre-wedding stress get in the middle of your awesome relationship and the time you spend together!
At the end, after all the planning, dress, flowers, food and family it will be you and him/her only. Cherish every moment.
