So many couples become deer in headlights once the engagement euphoria wears off. Realizing that you now have to plan what is most likely the biggest event of your life can be absolutely overwhelming. Weddings are just a complicated party, really...with more family dynamics and pressure thrown in for good measure. I'm KIDDING! Well, sort of.
"Best Wishes!" she said to me. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was walking in a local mall with my mother and we ran into a long time family friend. My mother updated her on the news that I was recently engaged, and whilst oggling at the ring, she exclaimed "Best Wishes!". I had never heard this before and when our brief encounter ended, my mother explained to me that she was correct in saying that as opposed to "Congratulations".
So many couples tell me they can't wait to be on the honeymoon after their wedding. I think the family dynamics, stress and hectic schedule involved with planning a wedding really wears on a couple and the best part of the whole experience is relaxing on a trip together.
When it comes to an important day like your wedding, you want to be sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.

These questions and countless more are put in front of everyone planning a wedding.
