Todays #realtalkthursday is addressing handling your engagement with grace. We all know that the wedding is just the beginning but it can be easy to get wrapped up in the excitement & whirlwind of the planning process. At some point in this phase it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and frustrated. When this happens, it is our significant others and the ones that are closest to us that we tend to take out our frustrations on. Feelings can get hurt and some things are hard to forgive.

Once the engagement is over and the wedding dress is packed away, wouldn’t it be easier to look back knowing that you focused on the substance of your marriage over the symbolism of the wedding? Make sure that you are creating a wedding that is just a prelude to a beautiful marriage!

Hold your partners and families feelings close to your heart through the process and remember that you want to walk away from the day with all of your relationships strong & intact.
