Each person has an opinion and it is impossible to please everyone, which is something that needs to be remembered when it comes to planning your big day. Everybody will have opposing opinions and different ideas of how your wedding should be. Remember during this time to remain calm, take opinions and suggestions in to consideration but it is your wedding to do exactly how you would like.
While that is easier said than done as so many people want to be involved in your special day. A positive suggestion would be to have a completely open discussion with your family at the very beginning of the wedding planning process but do try to steer the conversation back to your own vision of the wedding.
It's important to embrace and enjoy your big day, imperfections included!
Things may not go completely to plan on the day; timings may be disrupted, incorrect music may be played, guests or even the wedding party can arrive late and many other little hiccups can happen. As well as this, expectations versus reality can become skewed when planning a wedding.
It is important to set a realistic expectation of your wedding, including what is and is not achievable and to accept that if or when things do go wrong on your Asian Wedding day, to not stress too much and continue enjoying the day because before you know it, it'll be over.
While many Brides and Grooms put in a lot of effort in to creating the special, finer details that go in to planning a wedding, in reality, your guests may not notice these as they'll be too busy celebrating with the other guests and your families.
Instead of spending a lot of time and money on ribbons, the perfect candle holders or other decorations, spend the extra money on something your guests can be a part of such as lighting sparklers at midnight as you and your significant other exit the wedding. This will be beautiful and memorable for both you and the guests.
Unfortunately, your friends and family will upset and / or annoy you more than once during the wedding planning process. Whether that is asking for more guests to be included, switching their meal preference close to the wedding date, changing the seating arrangements and amongst many other scenarios.
While this is difficult to control, don't get consumed with anger or hurt and just try to 'roll with the punches' as they say. At the end of the day, they are your nearest and dearest, they love you and are probably, in their own way, trying to positively impact your wedding day. So, try to remember that before turning in to a bridezilla!
