I believe there is are a couple events in life that really define and reveal your friendships. One thing that always seems to happen with the stress of the wedding is tensions between mom and daughter and daughter and bridesmaids. It seems to be somewhat of an inevitable conflict. One thing that we forget though during the stress of the wedding is that all these people are to be friends with us afterwards. Yes the wedding is about you, yes the wedding is incredibly important, yes this is one of the biggest days of your life, but at what point is having an amazing day more important than your family and friends?
One thing that I realized after getting married is not much changes in your life after the wedding except that you now have someone to experience lif with him. Your dreams will remain the same, your hobbies will stay the same, and the friendships you have between people in your family will remain the same as well. I don't claim to be a relationship guru but one thing to keep in the forefront of your mind when planning your wedding is maintaining the integrity of the relationships around you no matter how stressful it may be!
Good luck on all your wedding planning!
