Why it’s important to have zero regrets before your Wedding day?

Z is for Zero Regrets

We’ve reached the last post in this A-Z journey of weddings.

Hence it feels apt to talk about the most important day of them all i.e. the wedding day!

So as your wedding day approaches, there are butterflies in your stomach, the stress in your head, and you might be too busy getting everything right for the main event.

But do you have any regret? Have you shared that with your partner?

If the answer is no, then I’m super happy for you and you have nothing to worry about.

But if the answer is yes, you might want to read the below points and find out what’s bothering you and why it’s important to share that with your partner before the wedding day itself.

Here are a few pointers that I believe can help you find that stress point.

1. Know what you’re getting into:

Please know what you’re getting into. Marriage is just not an event that you enjoy, click pictures and tata bye-bye. It’s a promise for a life together. Hence know your partner well and go ahead only after you believe it is the right thing to do.

This will help you in not having a surprising look one week post the wedding day!

2. Wedding expectations:

Whether it’s the same religion or an inter-caste wedding, every family or partner prefers having a few rituals or ceremonies.

Both parties might not agree to this and hence it’s best to ensure wedding expectations are dealt with. Come to a common ground or state if you’re uncomfortable with any ritual. Your partner has the right to know.

3. Budget:

Let’s talk about the main agenda i.e. the budget. Most couples opt for 50-50 now and a few where one party pays for everything.

It’s best to have this discussion and clear everything. If things are left unsaid, these can crop up from time to time post the wedding in form of arguments.

4. Living alone or with family:

Another sensitive topic is living alone or with a family post marriage. Have you discussed it? No? Then it’s high time you do. It’s important to list the pros and cons of doing both. Discuss with your near ones, take their advice, and then make a mutual decision.  

5. Financials:

Practically, this decision will help you both be well planned for your married life. Discussing financials for day-to-day and fixed monthly expenses helps you start saving in advance. This will ensure you are ready to start a life together without any money issues.

6. Transparent:

Be transparent with your partner as much as you can. If you have something that troubles you or if you’re not comfortable, your partner has the right to know. Being transparent will only help you be clear and there’ll be no friction.

What are my thoughts on zero regrets before the wedding day?

Wedding day is quite special and hence having zero regrets before the wedding will ensure that you enjoy it to the fullest. I believe it’s important that you stay as transparent with your partner as possible.

How to Plan the Best Bachelor Spinster Party

Y is Your Last Bachelor Spinster moment

As we have reached the penultimate posts in the series, it feels apt to talk about the last bachelor spinster moment.

Bachelor/spinster parties are a known tradition before the couple tied the knot. I’m sure you will have an idea of wild parties with some of your friends or if you’ve watched the movie “Hangover”.

To ensure, everyone has the best time and no one crosses any boundaries, here are a few tips you can follow to have a kick-ass party.

When to have a bachelor spinster party?

Ideally, it’s never a good idea to have a party too close to the wedding. It’s best if you can plan the party anywhere between 1-3 months before the wedding.

Where to have it?

I highly suggest that you look for a resort, villa, Airbnb, or even a known person’s farmhouse. This helps you have fun minus having to worry about anyone making a fuss.

If there’s no such option, you can always have a party at your place.

Whom to invite for your bachelor spinster party?

Ideally, the groom or bride call their best friends and at max their siblings/cousins. In case you’re planning to call your partner’s father, brother/sister, you must be clear up to when they can stay (depending on the type of games and activities that are planned).

Themes & Dresses:

It’s a trend now to keep theme-based parties. If you have such an idea, plan well in advance and inform your guests so they can make arrangements for the dresses accordingly.

Go to a different place:

It’s not cool to visit the same place that you guys/girls keep visiting. Since this is a special party, go to a new place.

Keep an eye on the groom/bride:

This is the duty of the Best man and maid of honor. Don’t let the groom/bride do anything that they will regret at this party.

It might sound fun and everyone will laugh but you must keep an eye on them and ensure they’re fine and within their boundaries. Everyone else in their party is on their own.

Plan games and have fun:

It’s okay if you want to keep a light dinner and a few drinks. But planning some games can take the party to the next level. Depending on the party guests, plan the games and have fun.

What are my thoughts on the last bachelor spinster party?

Well, it’s your special party. If your friends can plan a kick-ass party for you, I’m sure you’ll have the best time of your life. Don’t do something stupid that you’ll regret.

wedding expectations

Top 5 Wedding Xpectations for every couple

X is for Wedding Expectations

Getting a good night’s sleep before the wedding day seems like a Myth, don’t you think?

Some have parties that go on until the wee hours while the rest either are busy in last-minute preparations or are freaking out. Hence getting a few good hours of sleep is not possible.

There are many such wedding expectations a couple has before the wedding day.

Here’s a list of 5 such expectations a couple has before their wedding day.

1. Hair, make-up, dressing on point:

Nobody wants to look like a regular guest during their wedding. Hence you focus on hair, make-up, and dressing. There’s a lot of expectation a couple has so they can look at their best.

2. No hassle during ceremony/reception:

Another expectation deals with the wedding ceremony and reception. The couple expects everything to go as smoothly planned as possible.

If any last-minute cancellations, lighting issues, etc happens, it can affect how your reception ends. So no last-minute jitters, okay?

3. Food is good:

Yes, how can we forget the food? Most of your guests will like your wedding if the food is amazing. Hence any hiccup in the food department can cause you unimaginable stress. Let’s hope for the best on that day!

4. First Dance / Fumbling during speech:

Catholic weddings have the first dance. A few others might have a speech by the couple thanking everyone who came for the wedding.

Fumbling during the speech or missing steps and looking like a fool in the first dance is a nightmare for any couple. Let’s practice a lot and ensure that doesn’t happen.

5. Photos:

Lastly, the main event is incomplete minus the photos. If you have more pictures with your mouth wide open while eating, then you’ve got a problem.

Couples have the highest expectations for getting memorable pictures. Hence invest your time in finding the right photographer for your wedding, okay!

What are my thoughts on the wedding expectations?

I’ve just listed down 5 but there are many more expectations a couple has. It can be a stressful experience but in the end, everything turns out alright and you enjoy your wedding day.
