A Wedding Is Only One Day - Strong Relationships, Part 1

It's so easy to become completely wrapped up by the process of wedding planning. Many of us begin dreaming about our wedding day from a very young age, and several years of hopes, wishes, and plans can create some pretty high expectations. By the time we actually do get engaged, our minds are practically bursting with ideas for creating the perfect "big day." 




In the midst of all the dress shopping, the appointments with the florist, and the gift registries, it's important to set aside to think about what a wedding really signifies. By saying "I do," you're pledging your life to your future husband. As a married woman, your life will no longer be completely your own. Your career, your family, your home... Every major aspect of your life will in some way be impacted by your emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and legal ties to your new husband.

Being married will impact your life in more ways than you can possibly imagine. All your future major life decisions must forever be made in conjunction with another person - all because you said, "Yes!" 

A wedding is only one day, but marriage is for life. There's nothing wrong with taking countless trips to the bridal shop and spending hours on Pinterest shopping for the perfect unique bridesmaid gift, but it's important not to let this whirlwind distract you from the true portents of marriage. 

Of course you want your wedding day to be absolutely marvelous, but you have to remind yourself that ultimately, your wedding day is just that - a day. Marriage, on the other hand, will hopefully be for life. As you plan your wedding, don't forget to set aside time to continue developing and strengthening your relationship with your fiance. Your wedding day will always be a constant source of joyous memories, but only if you and your new husband can maintain a strong, healthy connection.

How do you do that, then? How do you make time for each other in the midst of all the craziness of wedding planning?

Never fear! The team at WhereBridesGo.com has plenty of great ideas for helping you to strengthen and solidify your relationship. Watch for the second of this two-part blog series: "But Marriage Is For Life - Strong Relationships, Part 2." We'll be doing an entire blog feature on tips for securing a long-lasting, supportive, healthy relationship. 

See you next week!
