10 Things You Should Know Before Your Wedding



If you’re reading this, congratulations! You’re likely engaged, or at least heading toward a wedding. It will be the most incredible, beautiful day of your life. You’ll probably deal with at least some stress beforehand, but when all is said and done, you’ll get to spend a wonderful life with your partner.

That being said, here are a few things I learned along the way to help YOU relieve stress and enjoy your special day!

It’s your wedding, not anyone else’s. It’s easy to feel pressure from friends, parents, etc. They’re all likely well-meaning, but it’s your wedding day, not theirs. It’s up to you how much input you want to let others have on things like your wedding dress (Say Yes to the Dress, anyone?), food, etc. We’ve all seen that list circulating the Internet about “stupid wedding trends” or whatever, but my thought is this: DO WHAT YOU WANT.

What I’ve Learned In 2 Months of Marriage

This past Friday, my husband and I celebrated our two-month wedding anniversary. While two months may not seem a lot, especially in comparison to those who have been married five, 10, even 30 or more years…. it’s not meaningless, and it means a lot to us. The past two months have been an incredible start to our journey together!

With that being said, here’s a few things I’ve learned in our two months of marital bliss.

1. Communication is key.

I mean, obviously, this is the case in ANY relationship – platonic or romantic, professional or personal. If you aren’t communicating well, it’s going to be a struggle no matter what the level of your relationship is. But that’s definitely true when it comes to marriage. Communicating your thoughts, your wishes, your hopes for the future… all important to have a successful marriage, and probably something every couple can always work on improving! Your marriage is worth investing in – so do it!

Vlog #1: Planning a Wedding (& Not Going Crazy!)

For the past year or so, I’ve been… busy. Busy planning a wedding – not just any wedding, but my wedding. It honestly seems like just yesterday that I was asking my now-fiancé to marry me. Now… we’re under two weeks away from the big day!

It’s been a journey so far, and I’m so looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead in the future for us – but I wanted to write a little bit about the wedding planning process, how it’s gone for me/us so far, and what I’ve learned along the way! Of course every relationship and wedding is different, and I’m by no means an expert.

With that – I’ve decided to enter into the world of vlogging!
