Couples hear again and again, Your Wedding is the Most Important Day of Your Life. Hold on there, dream girl. Wasn’t the most important day when you first met your partner and saw something extra special? Or when he or she popped the question and you said yes! To be honest, your most important day may not have anything to do with your significant other.
Just because everyone says it, doesn’t make it true.
Being told repeatedly that something is so important adds a level of unrealistic expectation. It also makes it easy for the wedding industry to legitimize the many upsells and add-ons that are the foundation of their business model.
This is the most important day of your life! Of course you need a silk tulle veil hand-beaded by blind Belgian monks.
Money can’t buy you love (although it can sometimes buy you a bride). It also can’t
guarantee a perfect wedding day. Once you come to terms with this fact of life, you will be able to relax and concentrate on how you’d like to spend your day, not on how everyone expects you to spend it.
