A couple puts a lot of time and energy into the planning of their wedding. They think about everything needed and all the details, in order to have the wedding of their dreams. The colors are coordinated and the bridesmaids and bestmen are perfectly matched. From the dress to the reception hall, every detail is key to having the perfect wedding day. To underscore perfection, a Wedding Planner is hired.
Lots of financial resources are invested in the wedding planning. Guests and family members travel miles around the globe to attend a wedding. The Wedding Planner ensures that both the couple and the guests are completely satisfied.
It is quite a shame that after all the effort and planning for the wedding, some marriages don’t last half as long as the time that was used to plan the wedding. Should we be focusing more on a Marriage Planner as oppose to a Wedding Planner?
We can’t allow the wedding to be a false representation of the marriage. Some people seem so excited about the idea of marriage, but most aren’t aware of the amount of energy it requires. Couples do not get a complete understanding of marriage prior to the wedding. How amazing would it be if every couple, prior to marrying, created a checklist for their marriage and followed that up by using the same steps they did during the wedding planning phase.
Hire a Marriage Planner – Otherwise known as a Marriage Counselor, a Marriage Planner advises the couple on the marriage. The couple gets a first look into the life of a marriage by answering questions on marriage matters. They both get an understanding of each other’s ideas on different topics.
One of the biggest contentions in a marriage is children. Couples don’t find that they have different views on children until it is too late. These are some of the questions regarding children that you may want to consider in marriage planning.
Can the couple have children?
How many children will the couple have?
In what religion will the children be raised?
Are the children going to have a stay-at-home mom?
If so, what is the plan to finance the home on one income?
No question the wedding day is special. It’s history for a lifetime. Yes, it’s a big deal. What’s also an even bigger deal than that is your marriage.
