You’ve reached the next step in your long distance relationship. It’s time to make things official. Check out the tips below when you’re planning your wedding with your long distance love.
Now that you have successfully managed to handle a long distance relationship, it is time to start planning your wedding. This might not be as easy as it sounds. Planning a wedding is quite stressful and normally needs both the bride and the groom to do it together even with the help of a wedding planner. In order to make your wedding a success, you have to be willing to do what it takes.
Here are 7 Wedding Planning Tips When You’re In A Long Distance Relationship
1. Maximize on the time that you meet
Even though the relationship is a long distance one it does not mean that you don’t meet at all. Take advantage of the time that you are there and try to go through as much of the wedding details and planning as you can. Get your partner’s opinion in every detail of the wedding so that they do not feel left out in the planning process and also so that they can feel like part of the planning.
2. Delegate tasks
Successful wedding planning needs teamwork. Find out what aspect of the wedding planning your partner is good at and let them handle that because you are sure if it’s their strength then they will do it perfectly. Do not give your partner a task that you are sure they cannot handle so that you don’t end up fighting over uncovered plans.
3. Do not constantly talk about the wedding
As much as you need or want a nice wedding, do not spend all the time you have constantly talk about the wedding. Only give the necessary information and updates. If you dwell much on the wedding more than on your lives, you might not end up having a wedding at all. Build on the relationship too even as you plan and have fun doing it. Avoid taking things too seriously.
4. Consider the services of a wedding planner
A wedding planner relieves the bride and groom from the stress involved in planning a wedding. Get the services of somebody you trust or has a good reputation when it comes to planning successful weddings. You can involve a member of the family from both sides to help in the planning and coordination. This way, you can concentrate on your relationship and still have a wonderful wedding at the same time.
5. Be Flexible
Some people start dreaming about their weddings at a very early age. Hover, with a long distance relationship you might not have what you have always dreamt of. It is very important for both partners to be flexible and learn to change with the situation at hand. Do not be rigid as this might put a strain on the relationship. Consider the fact that you might not get the time to even go to your honeymoon right after the wedding depending on either partner’s jobs. Concentrate more on your life together than at the wedding.
6. Use Technology
If the wedding venue is nearby one of you two, have that person take lots of photo and videos. Facetime or video chat if you can with vendors and options. Relay information back to the long distance partner sooner rather than later so it’s fresh in your head. How exactly did the food taste? What kind of vibe did you feel from the deejay. How fresh did the flowers smell? Details like these will help the other person feel more involved.
7. Remember It’s About You Two.
A lovely wedding does not necessarily have to be big. Make your wedding as simple yet elegant as possible. A huge wedding needs a lot of planning and this might prove tasking and strenuous when in a long distance relationship. You can have everything you’ve ever dreamed of at your wedding and still have it simple. A simple wedding can have just as much love as a large one.
Choose to have fun while planning your wedding. Remember, to do strain yourself or your partner in doing so. Relax and enjoy it and don’t make your partner go an extra mile when it is not necessary. Try not to keep reminding your partner of a task that is assigned to then as this will kill the fun and might make them choose not to talk to you at all. At the end of the day, it’s about you two coming together as one.
